Well

If it offends the Fundies, I'm happy.

"In its never-ending quest to sexualize everything in our culture, Planned Parenthood is selling a line of condom key chains that offends just about everyone in the country," said Jim Sedlak, executive director of American Life League's STOPP International. "Some are even blasphemous."

The condom key chains, featuring 28 different designs, are offered for sale on Planned Parenthood of Connecticut's Web site. Each chain has a picture or slogan on a plastic holder containing a latex condom.

"Planned Parenthood offends religious people with its key chain that shows a portion of the famous painting from the Sistine Chapel. Michelangelo gave us a beautiful image of Adam stretching out his hand to God, with God's index finger about to touch Adam's index finger," said Sedlak. "In Planned Parenthood's blasphemous version, God is handing Adam a condom."

Did I ever tell y'all about the student in my Comp II class?

I had that take-off of the Flying Spaghetti Monster picture on my door for awhile -- the one where He's touching Michelangelo's Adam with His Noodly Appendage? A nice enlarged full-color print-out, it was very pretty.

Anyway, one day I hear one of my students say to another student: "You orta go by and see her door sometime, she's got this dude on it with his whanger hanging out. All sorts of stuff!"

Yes, indeed. Arkansas.

WEll the condome from God, hmmm, let's take a look at the women in the Bible that God chose not to let procreate. There was Sarah, and Rachel, Elizabeth, and no tellings how many more. Then there were the women he gave plenty of children to. So, to say that God wasn't for planned parenting, well they best take a look at both the old and new testaments. So to hand out condomes, well I think that's a thing God would do, that is if God wanted to touch the finger tips of nasty little human monsters.

Well, you could have really blown his mind by telling him "That's God's Whanger!".
