I don't even know if it's really a conundrum


Orthometer: Partisan joke (so sue me)

Don't miss Fr. Erik's conundrum regards the Hildabeast.

To add to this one:

One day while Bill Clinton was president, he was walking along a cliff and pitched over the side and was precariously clutching to an outcropping. Three Boy Scouts were nearby and heard his cries for help and rescued him

Clinton said: Boys, you've saved my life, as president, there are a lot of things I can do to thank you. You each get a wish.

Boy scout #1 says: My dad was in the Navy, I'd love it if you could give me a presidential appointment to the Naval Academy when I'm old enough to go off to college. Clinton says: Yes, of course. Consider it done.

Boy scout #2 says: My dad was in the Army - can I have your appointment to West Point? Clinton: Done.

Boy scout #3 says: My wish is to be buried in Arlington Cemetery.

Clinton was astonished that one so young would be thinking about death. He said to the boy: Son, you have your whole life ahead of you, why would you be thinking a thought like that now?

The boy said: Because when my father finds out I saved your life he's going to kill me!

LOL, this is one I hadn't heard before.

Was this the "fat" Bill Clinton or the "skinny" Bill Clinton (just trying to get the visual in my mind...NOT).

Spiffy cool picture of Hildebeast. My husband was telling me about how she is following some book, Radical something or another (she apparently did her senior thesis on it), to the letter like a bible. Very methodical, she is.

Swiss - as awful and horrid as Bill (fat or "skinny") was the Hildabeast is a much more frightening spector. Whereas Bill could be distracted by the thought of getting some tail, the Hildabeast is twice teh threat to the republic Bill was.

The following is supposed to be a true story: When Chelsea was still in high school at Friend's in the DC area, there was supposed to be a class field trip and the kids were to have permission slips. Chelsea had forgotten hers and her teacher said "Well, no problem really let's just call your mom really quick for 20 seconds so we can get a verbal okay on that." Chelsea was horrified that her mother would be "disturbed" because she was so busy trying to stick us with Hitlery Health Care at the time, Chelsea said "NO-- don't call my mom, call my dad, mom's too busy!"

So help me.

I love this joke!--and I love the Hildebeast picture. Oh, if only someone could have gotten to her when she was this young--told her to "run" from Bill Clinton, and converted her to pro-life, before she turned into the picture on Father Erik's blog.

I'm wondering if the church says that priests can only be male because they are "in persona Christi" if the ANTI-Christ has to be male too? Any theologians out there who have had a few two menny kare 2 hava crak at it?

Stephen said...

Why, Karen - are you trying, subtly, to suggest that you're not a fan of Mrs. Clinton?

(Excuse me while I now retire to a safe distance)

Stevie! Nice of you to check in...let's just say that MaDAMN is not on my Christmas card list. That picture of hell freezing over applies.

tara said...

Well, the anti-Christ would be just the opposite of Christ, so the opposite of man is woman--yes! She has all the characteristics, Lets see, Christ is pro-life, she is pro-abortion, God is good, she is evil, oh, I could go on, but yes--she is anti everything Christ....hmmm...perhaps she IS the anti-Christ.

You've got a point there Tara. And the dragon is married to Beelzabubba. that should be the first clue.

swissmiss said...

So I guess you're saying that Hildebeast is the one frozen in the ice in Dante's Inferno...or is it Beelzabubba since he's the one who likes to eat?

gemoftheocean said...

C'mon, Swissmiss - they are one and the same - you haven't figured it out yet? The anti-Christ is both of them. Chelsea is the 3rd party in this unholy triumvirate. The voters need to crush the serpent's head(s)

swissmiss said...

I was going to say that they were a two-headed beast frozen in the ice, but didn't want to mess with Dante. Maybe he was just too scared to get a good look and assumed it was just one-headed.

gemoftheocean said...

Swissmiss: PERFECT answer. That solves that riddle.
