photo in need of a caption

why, yes, this is a statue of lenin, mickey mouse and jesus, walking hand in hand. do you find that odd or something?

c’mon with the captions, baby.

(thanks to rob craig for sending this via email, after he saw it on matthew paul turner’s blog)

and the winner is…

sorry, didn’t get to listing “contenders” this time around. there were a handful that made me chuckle or had a superior level of wit to them. but my two favorites, honestly, were:

Jeff Lilley’s
…each with a kingdom vision.

and
adam mclane’s
This statue is bestowed on megachurch pastors once they hit 10,000 in average weekly attendance. The motto on the bottom reads, “Rule with an iron fist, create a fantasy world, and teach them to walk like Jesus-ish.”

as you should assume, adam is slightly more than 100% ineligible, since, you know, we have a shared bank account and all.

that means: jeff lilly! you are a cham-peen! unfortunately, i didn’t actually offer a prize this time around (oops — forgot about that), so this wild and crazy level of congratulations constitutes the entirety of your prize. enjoy it!

Star Wars fans are abuzz about a recently discovered early draft of Star Wars Episode V, which reveal that George Lucas initially had planned to introduce three additional companions to Han Solo, and that all four were to be frozen in Carbonite after being betrayed by Calrissian and handed over to Darth Vader.
