the daily purge 3-13-17


Some people call it ‘pop’, some call it ‘fizz’. Some call it a ‘hootenanny’, others a ‘hoedown’. ‘Pothole’ vs. ‘chuckhole’; movie vs. film; woods or forest; ‘mowing the yard’ or ‘cutting the lawn’; and rocket ship or space ship.*

Is this a cork board or a bulletin board? Hint: The answer rhymes with ‘schmulletin board’. Why does The Purging Lutheran purge this ‘schmulletin board’? Because he and My Sweet Rib own a refrigerator and that’s where all our important notes are kept. Where do we keep tickets to an upcoming show? On the fridge. Where do we keep the calendar grandmama gives us each Christmas? On the fridge. Where do we keep a list of things we need from the grocery? On a whiteboard attached to the fridge. Do I have to give you another example? I do? OK. Where do all the refrigerator magnets go that MSR buys when she goes overseas? On the fridge! You’re getting it. Good for you!

*correct answers:pop – hootenanny – chuckhole – movie – woods – mowing the yard – rocket ship

Isaiah 5:20-23

Doom to you who call evil good
and good evil,
Who put darkness in place of light
and light in place of darkness,
Who substitute bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter!
Doom to you who think you’re so smart,
who hold such a high opinion of yourselves!
All you’re good at is drinking—champion boozers
who collect trophies from drinking bouts
And then line your pockets with bribes from the guilty
while you violate the rights of the innocent.
