Elin Woods gets a Decent Proposal

December 12, 2009

I haven’t stepped in to the Tiger Woods fiasco because a) It’s none of my business and b) I don’t care. But I have to applaud the chutzpah of one Kyle Verhovshek from Missoula, Montana who left this comment on NPR’s web site after the story broke about the world’s most famous golfer taking an indefinite leave from golf (to work on being a better husband, father and person….Uh-Huh.)  Folf?  Really? In case the you cant read the type:

Elin, if you happen to be perusing NPR… know that there is a man out there in Montana who will love you no matter what. Lose the zero, get with the hero. I’m more into folf than golf and will raise Tiger’s children as my own.
Sincerely,
Kyle

P.S. I’m poor, but you’re not… so everything will work out.

And speaking of God…

I’m a big fan of NPR… beyond the drone of bailouts and politics, there’s always something interesting. Since I’m on a religious roll, I’m fascinated with their five part series Your Brain on God.  The science of spirituality-very thought provoking, indeed.

Google up “Religious Advertising” and you get 153,000,000 hits…no surprise. It’s BIG business, this converting and saving.  There’s no money to be made in just doing good.  Organized religion evidently believes people can’t be good without their “help”.  And in order to save us, they need lots of your money and your compliance as part of their group. There are sites like sermonspice.com and buyfromachristian.com to help the cause. There will be no end to this, of course, as history has shown religion to be such a powerful force that pious folks have killed, scammed, cheated, lied, stole, and committed every other sin in the name of their particular faith. Ironic, isn’t it?

imagesNow, Google up “Religious Advertising Agencies” and you get 19, 300,00 hits. 

I’ll bet some of them are hiring.
