Hmmm...

On the way in to work I found a "street person" who looked like Jesus. I wonder if the Golden Palace Casino will buy him? I suppose it could have been a costume*, but the resemblance to all of those paintings that were done by people who never actually me the Man was uncanny. He was even more lifelike than the tree bark or wall mold Jesii.

* I hear that's the big thing on the streets these days. One "street person" dresses up as Jesus and then jumps about shouting "Look at me! I'm jumping Jesus!" until the tourists gather around to gawk. Then his associates wander among the crowd picking pockets and leaving behind little business cards that have a cross on them and read "Gotcha! Your Friend Jesus". Later, when the tourist goes for his wallet to pay for something kitschy for the folks back home, he pulls out the card, reads it and exclaims, "Hey! Jesus got me!" then everyone laughs. It's a hoot.**

** the addendum was longer than the post. I hate when that happens.

Jesus tried to rip me off last week, but I distracted him by asking "WWJD?"

while he pondered it, I ran like Hell.

Derek: If you had a hammer...

AndyC: Yeah, in spite of having a child "actor" that was pretty amusing. It gives me ideas for the next time my kids wish I was dead.
