Holy Budweiser, Batman!

It's only two days since my last post which means, if you note the length of time between posts in the recent past, pigs are flying over a glacier in hell. No doubt the glacier will melt and the pigs will crash and burn immediately upon my hitting the "Publish Post" button, filling hell with the delicious aroma of BACON, thus rendering hell much less hell-like, possibly even heaven-like. Well, except for the pigs, who would still consider it quite hell-like. Anyway, I had to post this church sign that I passed the other day when I went to pick up my daughter from a friend's house.



The use of a beer commercial as the basis for this little gem just cracked me up.

Also, show of hands: Who thinks my title for this post is stupid and who finds it to be an inspired bit of brilliance? Because really, I can't decide.

That is freaking hysterical. Church signs in general crack me up/frighten me - sometimes at the same time. En route to AND from Bristol I took a photo of the SAME sign which said something benign like "Jesus Saves - Welcome" and while not totally hysterical, given our insane 24 hours at Bristol, I felt like the sign was somehow both directed RIGHT AT ME but also A TOTAL LOST CAUSE. Like - church peeps: DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU'RE DEALING WITH? DIDN'T THINK SO. So yeah. Church signs. Great blog fodder.

This cracked me up too! I love it when the church seems to have a sense of humour.

Welcome back, by the way. Can't wait to hear what you've been up to!

There are several churches on my usual route with letterboards, and I am...uh...always interested to read what they have to say. One of them goes in for arch little puns, which makes me think, "Ooo, you got me there! 'No Jesus, no peace, know Jesus, know peace'! You've run RINGS around me logically! If it works in a wordplay, it MUST be true!"

Well, you know. They have to be eye-catching, right? So, whatever works.

And I vote for brilliant piece of artistry, as far as the post title is concerned.

Oh, church billboards. Have you ever seen the site that posts photos of them? You should submit this one.

I loved the title. I also love the fact that you're posting again.

I'm with Swistle - church signs usually kind of piss me off. But I like the one you snapped.

I love the title.
Dang, that church sign made me really want a beer. =)

I think the title is creative!!

And I love church signs, they always make me smile!

One by here said: "Wal Mart isn't the only saving place."

Stupid, and tasteless to boot. I'm not personally offended, since I'm not religious, but I think the image of drinking blood like it's beer is kind of disgusting.

Incredible post title. You rock.

The sign slays me. What's weird is the coincidence that today a friend and I were talking about strange names, and she told me she knows someone named....wait for it...you're gonna laugh...

Christian Blood.

How wacked is that?!

My church problem is solved. I wonder if they serve mix drinks.

Also: I vote brilliant.
