...and we finish with a big musical finale!

While I enjoyed Heaven! The Musical, I thought some of the backup angels' choreography was a bit weak. In the lead role, Jesus was, as always, divine.

The sets were unfortunate, and mostly resembled piles of shaving cream, or possibly bleached intestines. The costumes may have been left over from last year's Christmas pageant.

I feel deeply uncreative today

You think it's an angel but it's snot.

There. I said it. I'm 12.

someone should probably call the angels union about this

Is heaven really so overpopulated that they can spare personnel to hold your toilet paper?

For other angels, toilet paper itself is such a scandal, they have to hide it away under their robes.

Seat Cherub: the job no one wants.

push it

We've all seen this image, right? The giant angel watching over the children on the precarious bridge or the edge of the water or some other dangerous situation.

The problem is, sometimes when it gets interpreted, something is just slightly off, so it looks like the angel is getting ready to push the children off the bridge.

In this one, the angel is more looming, and appears more threatening than the water. Oh, and it's a fountain. Of course it is.

so, like, want to go shopping and stuff?

Heaven is so materialistic these days! That's why you need an angel bank.

bloody hell

Tampon angel. Seriously.

And it has a horrible little poem, of course.

I'm your little visiting angel, pretty as a swan.
I'll decorate your tree or wreath from dusk until the dawn.
I know that every month you'll think of me and put a smile on!
I'll even be hanging around when you crave a box of bon bons.
Now I guess you've figured out, and no, you're not wrong...
Someone found out another use for a playtex tampon!

Thanks go to alert reader Mary Ellen!

Meanwhile, in Messed Up Proportion Land

Nothing about this makes sense.

Ryan took this photo for me at Bargain Clown Saturday afternoon. That's some quality giftware right there, entirely worth the $1.29 price tag. I heart Bargain Clown.
