Jesus is dead...
schmoo
Last night in a fiery conflagration a 60 foot tall statue of just the upper torso of Jesus, known to the local heathen population as "touchdown Jesus", burned down to its metal internal structure. After being struck by lightning (snicker...)

I've driven past this thing I don't know how many times! I always did question the wisdome of putting a gigantic statue out front with its arms spread wide as though announcing to the universe "my dick is this long".

The porn store on the other side of the highway was fortunately undamaged.

Hello Skeevie! How's things?

I just felt the need to commune with fellow heathens on this great day when the divine symbol was shown to have feet of clay.

LOL-some great comments on "freethought Dayton"

I'm so glad the porno store was undamaged. Looks like God has his priorities straight this time.

But, I'm sure his followers in that church will see this as a sign that God is unhappy with the porno shop so he decided to burn down the Jesus statue.

Oh and this is the statue that inspired comedian Heywood Banks (as heard on the Bob & Tom show) to write the song "Big Butter Jesus" about a giant Jesus statue made out of butter. Google it, it's hilarious.

Hidy, schmoo! How goes it? Good to see an entry from you.

yes, I saw the "touchdown Jesus" story on my start page. I shed a tear at its passing.

 
schmoo
Probably not as many tears as the people who were downwind from it, the thing probably stank to (please excuse the pun) high heaven.

On the local news I did see the wife of the pastor, in all her overly made up glory, proclaiming that the plans are already in place to rebuild it.

Bob they played some of the 911 messages too, there was one man who was earnestly trying to convince the operator that it wasn't a joke, and she really sounded skeptical! LOL!
