jclds iconography

for my 50th post, i thought i'd do something a little naughty:

looking at mark’s blog I was impressed to find a link to lladro, the manufacturer of boutique statuettes. to my great mirth I found that one could purchase, among other luxurious items, this beautiful icon, entitled simply, missionaries.

anyone who has seen the australian made oscar-nominated short film, the messiah, as well as rushes from john safran’s pilot extreme mormons, not to mention trey parker and matt stone's (the creators of south park) orgazmo or even cannibal (do you think they have a past history involving the mormons?), i’m sure can’t but ask themselves if members of the church* of JCLDS have found for themselves a new icon.

it’s definitely quite different to the picture I have in my head, when thinking about christian missionaries back in the day – I just hope noone starts bowling up and venerating office workers unfortunate enough to be wearing a white shirt and black tie, asking for fingernail clippings – they’ve got to be worth at least a few indulgences, surely!
* it is perhaps worth mentioning that the group referred to as “the mormons” are not able to be registered as a church in some countries, rather are officially a cult, affirming the indubitably heretical nature of this group

mark - i linked from your blog, shouldn't that mean you take some of the responsibility? or is it a 6 degrees kinda thing, you could probably link to a chatroom on grooming habits of meercats from any website via 6 clicks.

mark - fixed it

may - yeah, i saw the title, i saw the picture, it took a while to work it out too!
also, who are you? - your blogger profile is restricted. can you at least link to your blog - it's much more fun that way, surely!
thanks anyway for congrats.
