"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


gifts that keep on giving

So I am trying to figure out what to send to Melissa the Missionary for her upcoming birthday in our longstanding Battle of the Tacky Christianesque Products (has it seriously been 9 years?), and I am completely torn. Namely, I'm trying to decide between this , this, and this. Thoughts?

I still think the Mormon hunks win. But I do love the toast thing!

Decisions, decisions...

Is anything for a limited time? Then you could make that priority. They're all winners!

I think I could do one for Christmas and one for her birthday.

Okay ladies, moving from bare Mormans back to Jesus - have you considered a Jesus figurine? There is quite a selection at http://wearefishermen.com/splash.html, including surfer Jesus, cowboy Jesus, and biker Jesus. Give it some thought.

Oh, Euphrony, that's fantastic. This is a longstanding battle that has involved (among many other things) a candle shaped like Jesus, pope soap-on-a-rope, severa glow-in-the-dark plastic Jesuses, a Not-so-Precious moment, and a truly unmentionable WWJD thong. I am always looking for new ideas.

Read Brant Hansen's blog. Although I did not get this from him, he has a seemingly endless supply of such products to ridicule.

I think that the "Threat Alert Jesus" would be a great gift...

This reminds me of an old contest in the '80s by the folks at the Wittenberg Door. Folks were to go into their local "Christian Book Store" and purchase the silliest piece of "Jesus junk" they could find for less than $1 and send a picture of it to the Door. The winner, which the editors decided was the silliest thing they'd seen anywhere at any price was a little cardboard sticky for one's front door that read, "In case of rapture, please feed our pets. Their names are: "
