Thanks for that, Ford. It perfectly reflects how I feel about this holiday.

Hope you have a good one, mate. :-*

Awesome.  I also personally get a good solid laugh about the "Jesus Fish" that christians all have plastered on their cars.  If only they had any idea what it REALLY was.  Hint:  It's no coincidence that it's a fish.

Here's an explanation I found just now googling it.  I can't remember when I first read it.

   I figured that's what it was but didn't want to sound overly sexist. :D

That's cute!

My niece told me about something that is really cute, on youtube.   Search there for "Digital Nativity"   It will give you a smile.... ;D

(there's a link to it in edfu's posting "What if Mary and Joseph had Google....")

I've never smelled like fish in my life - hang on, I did a bit when I was fishing for a living, but that was my clothing, not my yoni. None of the women I've been with smelled like fish either. I've only ever heard men make this claim.

So yeah, it is sexist. But I've come to expect that from Hellraiser and I had a feeling that was what he meant before he posted the link. ~sigh~

Preach!  I've never, ever gone down on a woman smelling of fish.  This is just purely male speculation (and usually heterosexual, what's up with that Hell).  Of course, consider the source of the posting.

Thanks Ford. That's not only accurate, but cute.

1)  I didn't make the association between the two, and that's not my website.

2)  I'm not sexist so no matter how much you broadcast and proclaim it that does not make it true.

3)  I've never been with a woman at all as I am what one would call a "Gold star gay".  So I would have zero first hand knowledge of what it smelled, tasted, felt, looked, or sounds(?) like.  I am however familiar with the gay reference codeword for women and have heard commentary from straight men.

I would however find it equally hilarious if Christians were riding around with a wheel of cheese on the back of their cars and it was somehow connected with a pagan symbol with male genitalia as a sidelong reference to smegma.

Sorry to derail so much from the original cartoon, Ford.

   It smells more like fresh oysters, and like a seashell, if you hold it up to your ear you can hear the ocean.

Having lived in the Snoopy gangs home town for as long as I have been a member of our Forums and practiced pagan ritual for much longer, I totally agree!  There is a large pagan community here who offers an all traditions festival monthly on the third Thursday of every month at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts.   ;D  Have the best day

When I lived in chicago my favorite time to work bartending was holidays , especially Christmas eve and day .

Not only did I make tons of money in tips I would have my pick of the litter of men to pick from at the end of the night , they were all sad and lonely , just needing a little attention to make them feel better . I guess you could say I put the HO back in the HO HO HO of Christams .
