Rock 'N Roll

I don't think anyone's noticed that I'm back yet. I guess you can't go silent for weeks on end and and still retain most of your readership. That's okay, though. I'll keep persevering to the (most likely) bitter end. Hopefully, if I make sure at least some of these make it onto that you, my friends, my colleagues, my only source of validation, will come running back to me with open arms.

Meh. A boy can hope.

I was trolling the interwebs today and stumbled across this little gem (pun intended).

Those are Faith Stones. They're pretty much just little rocks with happy little words on them. Honestly, I don't know what else to say. I haven't the foggiest idea what they're really for.

Tabletop Rock Gardening?

Probably not. Chakra balancing?

Doubt it.

Fun at the lake?

Well, that's probably what I'd use them for. But that seems like a waste of money just for some good skippin' stones.

You know, I used to walk around stores and laugh at all the inane crap that stupid people sell to other stupid people.

Now I always up ashamed when I see this, and realize that people who share my faith are just as bad. Seriously, how can you justify selling rocks? Not even pretty rocks. Just rocks with words on them. I guess they look at the guy who thought of the Pet Rock and said, "Hey look at him! That could be us."

I don't think so guys. I don't think so.

I've been messing around with The Motivator lately and having some fun. Here at Kinda Kitschy we're all about pointing out some of the stranger, quirkier facets of Christianity, so I've been putting together some posters to reflect that. Here's one for all of you.

You came from Heaven to Earth, to show us

A while ago, Diesel suggested that we have a contest for the best tag at the end of a post.

You just won.

You're back! Your front! You're both here! (Robin Williams, "Aladdin")

Good to read you again!

Allen said...

Oh! I forgot! The religious stones are for throwing through the windows of the Christian car--which you failed to mention has a burglar alarm with the voice of Billy Graham that leads the thief in the Sinner's Prayer.

Man, Allen, why do you have to beat me at my own game?

Dinosaur Mom said...

More potential fodder for you here ...

Diesel said...

Let he who is without sin skip the first stone.

Miss Kitty said...

Glad to have you back, Greg.

I'd probably end up using the happy little stones to throw at students when they bring in shoddily-written papers. Not very Christian of me, but it's probably what I'd end up doing.

Joel Bezaire said...

Nice, Diesel.

Just remember, the stone which was rejected has become the cornerstone.

You didn't know it had the word "inspire" on it, though, didja?
