The End of Josephus
« on: May 14, 2012, 02:29:45 PM »
I wasn't truly sure where to put this, but it was too good not to share.   If you're like me, and tired of Josephus:

"But to us, there is but one god, plus or minus one."  - 1 Corinthians 8:6+/-2

It's true. She's been requesting pictures of mine on and off for the better part of a year. I keep playing hard to get though. She at least owes me dinner first. I'm not some cheap tramp.

I see no junk. I see a leaf. And not even a very big leaf. Hercules. Puny god. But at least he ain't wearing a dress like some so-called gods I could mention....:P
If you have god, why do you need the gun?

these aren't gods but they are either swinging some serious pipe or have geoducks attached in an uncomfortable place.

I believe it was originally an attempt to hide the naughty bits.  But it ends up more like this: http://waynesword.palomar.edu/psgourd1.htm   may not be safe for work.
