Just because…zombie tweet of the day

I just got a “Choose Your Own Adventure” spam

This is probably fairly common and I just haven’t noticed before. But, this morning my spam filter turned up the following, which looks a lot like a choose-your-own-spam approach to spamming. I like it. I think I should try writing a blog post like this.

{Great|Nice} points {and plenty|and many|and lots} {to think about|to consider} {when it comes to|in terms of|in relation to|with regards to|relating to|on the subject of} Worship Leading. {We need to|We have to} see our worship leading as a journey, not a {skill|talent|ability} {we have|we now have|we’ve|we have now|we’ve got|now we have} already mastered.

The LOLcat Bible…seriously

What do you get when you combine cats, bad grammar, cheesy pictures, and more cats? If you answered “hell,” you’d be correct as far as I’m concerned. Unfortunately, the real answer is that you’d get this:

LOLcat Bible: In teh beginnin Ceiling Cat maded teh skiez an da Erfs n stuffs.

I’m all for new translations of the Bible that help people engage God’s Word in new ways….but this? Please make it stop. My eyes are starting to bleed.

Can’t…reach…keyboard.

If you’d like more information on the project, you can check out the LOLcat wiki. But I don’t recommend it. I clicked on the link and my head exploded. Now I can’t find my teeth.

Fortunately, we have some academic support to help us navigate these shoal waters. As James McGrath points out, both Daniel Kirk and Matthew Crowe offer some perspective on this new “translation.”  Sadly, Matthew appears to like it, suggesting that he has actually been possessed by an alien parasite that has taken over his higher critical functions. We should pray for him.

Update: We should probably pray for Daniel Kirk as well. Apparently he actually read this. So, I’m assuming that he is currently experiencing complete neural failure. I hope he wasn’t driving at the time.

Just because…watching Jaws backwards

Get behind me Satan, wait your turn

Apparently this quote has been around a bit longer than I thought.

Saturday morning fun – bowling with cats

Learning to argue…from Monty Python

I spend a fair amount of time helping students craft better arguments – i.e., helping them write strong thesis statements, develop a clear flow of thought, make sure points are well-connected, etc. But, I’m done with all that now. Instead, I’m just going to point them to this Monty Python clip. What more could you possibly need to know about skillful argumentation?

Nation somehow shocked by human nature again

The satirical “news” site The Onion posted great piece yesterday on our incredible ability to view sinful behavior as abnormal despite mountains of evidence to the contrary.

Despite there being nothing unusual about the incident in Brandon, the media has descended upon the small town in droves, somehow finding a way to portray the event as if it were a novel phenomenon or some sort of aberration within human society, an assertion that even a cursory glimpse at the species’ violent past would immediately disprove.

There is, of course, truth in the idea that some acts are more heinous than others. But, we do maintain an incredibly optimistic outlook on human behavior, an optimism that causes us to be constantly surprised when the reality of sin confronts us in unavoidable ways.

Happy Valentines – Zombie Style

Just because I didn’t want to let this special holiday go entirely unrecognized.

“This is when you know we’re going to hell.”

This was too much fun to pass up. I’m not sure what profitable use this could possibly be in your ministry, but I’m sure you could come up with something if you really tried. Thanks to Jim West for posting this and providing us all with an enjoyable (and devastating) two minutes.
