Silly Site o' the Day

I'm not the first, and I won't be the last, to notice how those ubiquitous ribbon magnets on the backs of cars look like "Jesus fish" when turned sideways. Yet another reason to be wary of them, no matter what charity they supposedly help support. At this time of year I feel most keenly the disparate, desperate methods used to expunge the line separating church and state as if it were the writing on Scrooge's headstone. Maybe it's part of being such a relatively young and experimental country; American is still obsessed over sexuality, religion, racism, etc. to the point where we can't seem to discuss any of it emotionlessly enough to evolve beyond it, whereas many European countries don't seem to flaunt their Christianity nearly as openly. Well, we may not get irony, but we sure do get parody. Here, have at the Anti-Magnet site.
