This will very likely earn me a one way ticket to Hell...

...but I have to ask it.

What if?

Just what if there was a...


A mistake in the translation?

What if the crowd didn't say "Crucify him!" at all?

What if they said...

Well, then I guess you'd have an example of a government that (1) engaged in vote fraud and (2) used fear to legitimize torture.

Hey....that has a familiar ring to it....

But seriously...I am offended at your hanging the Savior on a broccoli floret. But then again, I'm an African American Pastor. It's to be expected. We're like that.

"Someone had to fight the Devil
Shout about Gabriel's Horn
Someone had to stoke the train that would bring God's children to green pastures
That's why darkies were born"

P.S. Thanks for not telling a Nigger Joke.

Rev. Penniman,

I apologize if my crucifercation of Jesus offended you. However, I am hoping that He has a sense of humor.

It all came about after reading a magazine in which broccoli was referred to as a crucifer. This was a new one to me so I looked it up and, whaddaya know, it is not only someone who carries a cross but any number of plants in the mustard family as well. So, while haning the Savior on a broccoli floret might seem in poor taste, at least it wasn't a cabbage.

Which, by the way, I used to do my penance already by making 8 lbs. of halushki last night.

Perhaps a GWB on a cabbage...?

As a card carrying member of the National Association for the Advancement of Crucifers and Potatoes, I must voice my objection to the continued and continual propogation of this harmful streotype of broccoli as being 1) terroristic and 2) very, very large.

Neither is true and your blog does a great disservice to both the Cruciferian community and to those who are trying to get their god-fearing children to eat something, anything green.

Why not, instead, show lovely pictures of our Lord partaking in some healthy, winter exercise. Like so.

Thank you for your consideration. I am a long time reader of your blog, and wish to continue to be so. If you could write a post extolling the virtues of celery, all will be forgiven.

My dear child,
How long we have waited for this joyous day! For years and years we have anxiously awaited the Sign and Lo! He has revealed Himself unto you.

You are the chosen one - the one who will carry on the secret of our order - the Florecrucians.

But beware, my child, for the evil one and his minions are about. We are sending someone to whisk you away forthwith to a super secret location.

You will be safe and all shall be revealed unto you, O Promised One.

With sincere regards,
Sister Broccoletta
Superior Mother of the
Sisters of Jesus Cruciferred
