    In my youth I printed up a copy of this => … and posted it above my desk in Plano, Texas.

    Alas, it didnt cause any fights, not even rude comments! Perhaps there are pockets of civilization in that dry wasteland. Still, a fun game to play.

    A friend of mine, a copywriter, many years ago, wanted to make an ad for a harware store along the lines of “if Jesus was nailed to the cross with our nails, nobody could have taken him off the cross”

    I’m going to have to send that site to my dad, the priest. He’ll find it hillarious.

    But, PZ, why do you think you’re going to hell? I thought you didn’t believe in such silly bits of superstition like an afterlife. Leave statements like that to us theists.

    My recollection is a little hazy because it was several years ago, but there’s a scene in Attack of the Killer Tomatoes where someone visits a PR company for advice on how to calm the public in the face of mounting disaster. (The Simpsons, of course, riffed on this in a Halloween show.) The PR agent is in a screening room and makes his visitor wait while he views a new commercial his company has just put together. We don’t see the screen he’s watching, but we hear the swelling of dramatic music, followed by a pleasant baritone voice saying something like, “Hello, this is Jesus Christ for Amalgamated Ball Bearings…”.

    Geez, I’m going to have to go rent it now and sacrifice a few brain cells watching it again.
