Billy is very young and bored in church. So he sticks his hand in the back of his trousers for a scratch or to fix his underpants. Eventually his hand needs company so the other hand dives in and helps whatever is of interest back there. Mom sees this and nudges Billy while whispering a rebuke. Billy complies. Both hands come out. A few minutes later Billy needs a snack and finds some nourishment in his nose which he delivers to his stomach via his mouth. Once again mom is there to acknowledge Billy's behavior. Then the time comes when everyone in church is suppose to offer the sign of peace to the people sitting near them. For some reason no one is shaking Billy's hands but are saying peace to him as they maintain their distance. Billy must be use to this because he smiles and gives them the peace sign and begins to wiggle out a little dance. "Billy what are you doing? Stop that." His mom says to him for about the millionth time. Who says church can't be fun. Not Billy.

One party runs an ad saying their opponent is dishonest and worse. The candidate under attack runs an ad saying how dishonest and evil his adversay is. If both canidates are right does that mean the person that gets elected is truly the lesser of two evils?

A little play on holiday words. If Jesus was Jewish does that mean his followers are also Jewish? If so maybe we should combine the holidays. The first half of the Bible is the same for everybody isn't it? So many questions but when I was small the most important one was. "Where did my parents hide that Easter Basket full of candy?" I also learned never to hide chocolate candy in white pants pockets. It will melt and your mom will get mad. Plus I think Chocolate Crosses are creepy and should be banned.
