Cincinnati Tour '07 - Observatory

Hello Everyone! It's not too long before everyone descends on our new house so we are starting to plan ahead. One cool thing right in our neighborhood is the Cincinnati Observatory. I called today and the only time they are open the holiday week is Sunday night, July 1. I think the Burnetts will not be here as of yet but what say the Riestras? For a "suggested donation" you get a bit of history and if the weather is fine you can look back in time ... (cue Twilight Zone music)

Embarrassing Dad: The Possibilities

Ah yes, one of the perks of paternity... In all our moments of black-socks-with-shorts glory, did we ever attain to this?

Sweep the Leg, Johnny


This one's especially for you. And for all of us who loved Karate Kid.

Seven Deadly Sins Combo -- room for improvement?

Hey Theologigglers,

I found this funny thing while trolling the web this morning. It's a graphic matrix describing combinations for the Seven Deadly Sins.

I thought it was funny, but there is room for improvement. It provided a theolochuckle, but not a giggle, much less the hearty guffaw accompanied by the two-handed clap.

Snarkers, start your engines and have at it!

We have written before of our family's fondness for junior-high humor. No reason to reach for the collegiate or doctoral-level wit when there is a low-hanging booger joke in view (so to speak). And so it is not surprising that we all very much enjoyed this list of the top 256 Star Wars lines that are improved by the careful substitution of the word "pants."

Our favorites:
Darth Vader: I find your lack of pants disturbing.

Yoda: I cannot teach him. The boy has no pants.

Princess Leia: Alderan is peaceful, we have no pants!

Obi-Wan Kenobi: These aren’t the pants you’re looking for.

This is probably oldy-moldy to the rest of you cultural edge-cutters, but we found it rather funny. (Fair warning: there are a few of these lines whose humor extends into the mildly suggestive).
