Thought for the Day

Every weekday morning, when I drive to work, I drive down a hill and past a church with a mutable sign facing the road. I'm pretty sure the holy sign-tender feels he needs to one-up himself in terms of wittiness compared to the previous week each time he's faced with a blank slate. I share his latest example because I don't feel like keeping it locked inside where it can do damage.

"Prayer: Your best heart drive anti-virus protection."

Oh yeah. Punny for Christians and developers alike (not that you can't be both, of course - but considering, it begs the combination of whether a particular, Republican, left-for-a-Christian-family-centric-company, ex-co-worker is in charge of the sign).

Last week and the week before (and I paraphrase):

"God loves knee-mail."

Which was later modified to:

"God loves knee-mail: mail and fe-mail."

Which I can only imagine he heard after service as an aside by an amused parishoner who thought the addendum would be particularly funny.

Once there was a bit up that was up for only a day - I remember it being a little questionable - so maybe church sign-guy is a risky job and subject to a lot of criticism. Personally, I'm looking forward to the day when it reads, "Jesus, Bhudda and Mohammed walked into a bar..."

The best one I've seen was down in Las Cruces, NM. It was during a very nasty, hot summer. Hot even for NM. I drove by a church with a sign up that read, "You think it's hot here?"

I actually laughed out loud. Might have been the heat making me delirious, of course.
