Also, the cross appears to be very expensive in contrast to the simple wooden cross that Jesus carried. This alludes to the monetary burden religion places and how far away from Christ's teachings Christianity has gotten. I also noted that the speaker was standing upright while Jesus was labouring under his burden. Finally, I couldn't help but think of all the Christians I know that wear expensive crosses around their necks.

I agree, it is a satire of the modern church and the Christ they claim to pattern their life after. The stout priest bedecked in a jeweled cross introducing the emancipated cross bearer. It makes me think of Mahatma Gandhi who said, "I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ."

Well firefox displayed a blank post from eloy, but since I obviously missed something I opened it in IE and I see the image. FF security must have blocked it since I see that the link does go to http://img.pixs.ru/storage/5/4/2/1280859928_7195027_861542.jpg, and usually nothing good comes from sites with .ru country code. Nothing personal eloy, just the facts.

But a very accurate depiction of far too many believers today

Here are a few funny signs from around the world.

A funny sign in a Norwegian cocktail lounge:
"Ladies are requested not to have children in the bar."

In a Zurich hotel:
"Because of the impropriety of entertaining guests of the opposite sex
in the bedroom, it is suggested that the lobby be used for this purpose."

In a Bangkok dry cleaner's:
"Drop your trousers here for best results."

In an Acapulco hotel:
"The manager has personally passed all the water served here."

Outside a Hong Kong tailor shop:
"Ladies may have a fit upstairs."

In a Czechoslovakian tourist agency:
"Take one of our horse-driven city tours - we guarantee no miscarriages."

A Cow, an Ant and an Old Fart are debating on who is the greatest of the three of them.

The Cow: I give 50 litres of milk every day and that's why I am the greatest!!

The Ant: I work day and night, summer and winter, I can carry 52 times my own weight and that's why I am the greatest!!






What are you waiting for? It's your turn to say something.

A Saskatchewan guy went out duck hunting in the fall and a gust of wind blew, his gun fell over and discharged shooting him in his private parts.

Several hours later, lying in a hospital bed, he was approached by his doctor.

"Well sir, I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that you are going to be OK. The damage was local to your groin, there was very little internal damage and we were able to remove all of the buckshot."

"What's the bad news?" asked the hunter.

"The bad news is that there was some pretty extensive buckshot damage done to your penis which left quite a few holes in it. I'm going to have to refer you to my sister."

"Well I guess that isn't too bad," the hunter replied. "Is your sister a plastic surgeon?"

"Not exactly," answered the doctor.

"She's a flute player in the Regina Symphony Orchestra. . She's going to teach you where to put your fingers so you don't pee in your eye.
