Saint Christina The Astonishing

There are hundreds of Patron Saints in the Catholic Church.  Catholic doctrine teaches Patron Saints intercede to God for you.  They’re kind of like holy lawyers pleading your special needs. Saints are chosen by particular groups because they have similar interests, talents, or behaviors.  Here’s where you can find the Church’s official line: If you go to this site, you can also sign up for a ‘Saint of the Day’ via your email or iPhone.

St. Christina The Astonishing (circa 1100 AD in Belgium) is a good example.  She renounced all comforts of life and eagerly sought all that could cause her suffering. She would jump into burning furnaces, plunge into frozen rivers for days at a time, and run through thickets of thorns chased by mad dogs. Christina did all of this and never suffered a scratch although she did seem to have some issues.  People called her crazy, astonishing – and made her the Patron Saint of the mentally ill.

Just Another Man You’re Going To Blame

Human test trials for the male birth control pill are now in the final phases. This is a really dumb idea.

WOMEN – here’s a hypothetical test:  you meet a really hot guy at a cool party. There aren’t any telltale tan lines of a wedding ring on his finger. He’s clean, kind of good-looking, and is neither a hairdresser nor an interior designer. And he’s only spent about three quarters of the time talking about himself.

A bouncing boobed bimbo shakes on by and he never takes his eyes off you. Bingo! You’re slightly drunk – so you invite him back to your apartment “to talk.” When he actually pays for the cab ride and gives the driver a good tip, you think – “should we rush a Spring wedding….or wait another month?”

As soon as you enter your apartment, passion melts the wallpaper! Clothes fly everywhere and at one point in the melee, you kiss your own forearm! After tumbling into bed, you take out a condom and hurriedly hand it to your new lover.

He smiles and says, “I don’t need that, Baby – I’m on the male birth control pill.”

WOMEN, Do you say …….

A. “Wow! You really DO have a great sense of humor!” or

B. “You HAVE to – I don’t want to get HIV again!” or

C. “Good! I WANT to have more children!” or

D. “Right. How selfish of me to put an unwanted pregnancy before your minute and a half of pleasure!”

Male birth control pills will become viable only when women trust men enough to put down the toilet seat every night.

(When I was single, I had a vasectomy.  I always knew ‘childfree’ was the right choice for me.  Sometimes when I went out with a new woman, she was hesitant about trusting me with that piece of information.  I was always happy to  let her find the small scar herself in a bar or restaurant.)

McDonald In Special Forces With Bryan Williams

“And Bill O’Reilly was point man.”

New York Post:  “President Obama’s new secretary of Veterans Affairs lied about his military career when he claimed he served in the Army’s Special Forces.

Robert McDon­ald — who took charge of the agency amid a scandal over veterans dying while awaiting treatment at VA facilities — made the comment in a conversation with a homeless vet in LA.

“Special Forces? What years? I was in Special Forces!” McDonald, 61, tells the man.”  Read more:
