That there's a taliban welcoming good and decent American citizens in the afterlife does come as a bit of a shock.

From the same site:

"Jesus and Flamingo Shower/Bath Gel" - an unlikely combination. But wait: there's more! Yes, "Jesus contains 50ml of scented shower/bath gel" (who'd have thunk!), yet, as they claim, is "SOLD OUT". Unsurprisingly though, as with £1.00 it was certainly cheaper than 30 pieces of silver. Nor do you have to kill yourself afterwards. Which is always a good thing, I reckon.

I have to admit I found this rather tempting, but then I came up with a bunch of questions.

I do wonder how well it grinds the peppercorns. Also why they chose to depict the BVM in ebony? And does it dispense both salt and pepper or merely grind whichever (which assumes the salt is in chunky form) you put into it?

Kitsch is one thing, lack of information on a website selling something is another.

More for halloween at this site. Amongst other things, the wigs are just fab!

For those unfamiliar with the contemporary images of Jesus which are readily accessible all over the interwebz, this handy reminder is included:

quote:
What Does Jesus Looks Like?

Jesus is portrayed in the Bible and most photos as a man with shoulder-length brown hair, a full beard, wearing a mid-calf lenght white robe and sandals. In some pictures he is portrayed wearing a blue sash with this ensemble also.

The Bible references Jesus as a shepherd also, so in some instances he is pictured with a large staff, or rugged stick, in his hand.

In historical recordings, Jesus was crucified on a cross, resulting in some pictures portraying him with holes in his feet and the palms of his hands. In addition to the holes, he often is seen wearing a crown of thorns that the Romans put on his head when they placed him on the cross.

Strangest of all -- the Breast Tree Ball [Eek!]

While in Launceston (Cornwall) today, I visited a retro/kitsch shop with lots of interesting and fun items, including this holy holy water bottle, which 'redeems parched sinners'; this Divine Inspiration Hand Sanitiser (cleanse thy hands from the Devil's dirt) and a Benedictaphone (which I seem to recall has been featured here recently).

So if on holiday this year (especially if in Cornwall), look out for some fun Gadgets for God to take home with you.

Cast that first stone with the Jesus Slingshot.

I feel just terrible that I didn't learn of this until weeks after our regional Confirmation service. It would have made such a lovely gift for the youth. Maybe next year.

An article today about the many items being marketed for the Pope's forthcoming visit to Philadelphia.

There is a lot to choose from, but I think my favorite is:

quote:

...the pope-shaped mozzarella that will be available at Pastificio in South Philadelphia. Owners Anthony Messina and Frank Sangiuliano commissioned artist Larry Buss to make the mold.

"I see that being a centerpiece at the table decorated with some tomatoes and basil," Messina said. He's taken 80 advance orders at $20 apiece.

Over at fiverr.com, where people do all sorts of things for five bucks, there's "I will have Jesus send you a custom video from Heaven".

quote:
Bethlehem in tha house!!! That's right, the son of God has a Fiverr account! Imagine the possibilities, they're endless! But for now, most folks just seem to want Christ our Lord and Savior to wish their friends/family a "Happy Birthday" or inform children their pet is in heaven with me, chillin.
So, for a video Christmas card, would he sing "Happy Birthday to Me"?

Instructables has many Advent calendars to make. I really like this non-religious Toy Train Advent Calendar.

Same with Nativity scenes, like "Unorthodox nativity, Gabriel's message in a plastic bottle ".

Inspired by this thread on the prosperity gospel, I came across the wonderful board game for aspiring televangelists: Fleece the flock. It appears not to be on general sale anymore, but you can pick up a second hand copy from some online retailers.

From the Pope Benedict XVI Fan Club, the t-shirt that is but a stroke away from being an awful typo. Though the most cynical may argue that it would be apt.

It's the "What other items do customers buy after viewing this item?" list that left my mind quietly boggling. The connections are not entirely obvious.

Yep, several of us have one. Mine is perched on the computer now!

I found Luther cake in our local ethnic store. Of course it's been sitting on on my cube wall at work! Comes with a stencil to be used to outline Luther in powdered sugar...
