You Better Enjoy the Next Two Days

I don't really have much to say about this flyer, other than that it is the single greatest piece of junk mail I have ever received.



If the End Times involve the badass animals pictured here, I am kind of looking forward to them.

(Note that apparently even the Antichrist can't get "Silver Spring" right.)

If the antichrist can't find Silver Spring, I'm strangely okay with that.

Thomas Hardman said...

The antichrist is a regular at Piratz.

Seriously, at least that's what he tells me in e-mail...

Phew, for a second, I thought we were in trouble in Silver Spring. Poor people in Silver Springs, they have no idea what's coming to them. Neither do I for that matter. What is this all about?

It's some 3-day seminar in Silver Spring about the coming Apocalypse. (With activities for kids!)

The GOP is having a convention here? I just hope they clean up after those flying lions.

I received this mail yesterday and was also visited by a Baptist minister on my doorstep from the church that is hosting this. When I told him we were Catholics and down with J.C. he told me I wasn't going to heaven.

So rad! Great way to win friends and influence people.

Anyways, when the flier came in I was momentarily excited about a circus coming to Silver Spring and the family-friendly blogging possibilities.

Needless to say, you will NOT be finding this bizarro spectacle on APISS.

Now, I must get back to my papist drinking and whore of babylon-ing....

Sorry, I was wrong.

It was a dude from another church that informed me of the demise of my soul.

Apparently, this production is a movie:

Good catch on the movie. I was wondering exactly what it was.

Springvale Roader said...

Jessica, au contraire, it does indeed look like the circus is coming to town (and the best kind too, with no animals).

I can't think of a greater show on Earth than bible thumpers condemning my atheistic soul to the Big Heat.

Sligo said...

Somehow I doubt they knew about grizzly bears in the Holy Land.

ian.swank said...

Maybe they think all the zombies in Silver Spring are a harbinger of the end-times.

Seriously though, where is this? I may bring popcorn to watch this fun.

If my old neighbors down in Cajun country saw a flier like that, they'd be thinking in terms of recipies. I'd eat what they cooked, too. Winged apocalypse lion might be rather tasty in a gumbo.

Thomas Hardman said...

Sligo, I do seem to recall that in Scripture, some kid made fun of some prophet's bald head, and YHWH sent a bear to devour said kid. Probably not a grizzly, tho'.

I'm still trying to figure out how to break it nicely to the occasional bible-thumper that I'm neopagan/geopagan scientific agnostic, and that Trout guide my politics more than the Bible does.

And of course, the near complete lack of Trout in our local streams is a clear indication that the place is godless and overrun with sinners. ;)

At first I thought this was some sort of D&D convention.

Then I wondered how low-rent these people actually are to be, apparently, using stock images from a CD with a title like "Fantasy Collection, Vol. 3."

Anyway, my daughter loves the flyer.

Thomas Hardman said...

2 Kings 2:23-25 ;)

See also what immediately precedes.

Not to mention Prov 29:2 as long as we're at it.

Jer 16:5-9 is comparably enlightening.

But if you really want to mess with these guys, show up as a group all dressed as Emos, and chant to them the entirety of Psalm 88.

I guess I am just so wicked, eh?
