Invisible But Pink?

Never before
have I chosen to explore
so much unusual unicorn lore.

Now, it turns out there is a church of the Invisible Pink Unicorn.  It's a lot like the church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.  Both lampoon standard religious belief.  But unlike the FSM, the IPU is female.

I find my feelings are torn
between Spaghetti and Unicorn.

The Spaghetti Monster is funnier.  But the Pink Unicorn is more beautiful.

I know Barack Obama is looking for a new church. 

Since he's Christian, not atheist,
neither is likely to make his list.

Of course, it would be hard to get elected
if either of these was the faith that you selected.

Poetry in the Comics

Shawn Klein sent me this funny comic about a robot who wants to set up a poetry website.

"I'm going to post a little bit about robot life each day!"

The other robot replies:

"If you're going to lower yourself to this... If you're going to practice a dead art that nobody cares about and post it on the internet, why not just go all the way and make it comics or softcore porn?"

Of course part of the humor is the self-referential bit where a comic strip on the internet makes fun of comic strips on the internet.

In my view, neither one's a dead form.
Their hearts are beating and warm.
