Inappropriate Knowledge

Posted in Odds, Religion on November 24, 2009 by The Prince of Pithy

Offhand, I can’t think of anything I hold sacred.  I think everything and everyone can be made fun of, but some things can still be inappropriate.  An example is a bit of useless knowledge I saw today:

Now, I’m not a fan of the Mormon faith, but that was an inappropriate cheap shot.  It’s also misleading.  “More than many” would seem to indicate that a sizeable number of Mormons have over 100 wives.  Plus, I think by the time you’re up to 100 wives, you’re no longer a part of a recognized religion, you’re clearly in cult leader territory.

Bah Humbug

I spent a few hours today in the café in a bookstore reading, writing, and contemplating communication with aliens.  At one point I noticed the store was selling “Bah Humbug” mugs.  For a second I considered buying one to express my displeasure at Chinamas.  (Chinamas – the four month orgy of consumerism where tons of cheap, worthless crap is bought propping up foreign economies, often confused with the Christian holiday of Christmas.) But then I wondered if buying the mug would actually support Chinamas.  I checked and – of course – the mugs were made in China, so I didn’t buy it and was left feeling like I had lost something.  Damn you Chinamas.
