Your Moment of Zen


A frequent reader pointed out this funny series of column headings over at The Independent...it almost looks like a product sponsorship!

Jon Stewart of The Daily Show would love this if he had a few writers to write about it. Despite the strike, he actually does for a couple of weeks as he agreed to pay them during the first two weeks of the strike. Good for him!

Scientologists out there -- do what you will, but this is a rare sighting of your intention being made reality in the world. Clip it for your press packet.

Now you've done it, Sara. If you think you get some ugly, over-the-top stuff about the News Press disaster, wait till you see what you get from this posting.

It's completely predictable.

You'll be bombarded by two groups, the Scientologists and their antagonists. The former, as they always do because it's "standard tech," will post long, cheery tracts about how Scientology "works"and its boundless potential to help humanity.

The latter will sneer about Xenu, the exorbitant fees for services, Hubbard's madness, and more.

Eventually the Scientologists will start posting, because it, too, is "standard tech," horrible invective about the anti-Scientologists.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

Good luck.

The best explanation I have ever seen for Scientology is on South Park.

The South Park Scientology episode is one of the funniest episodes ever!

How do those guys get away with all of the crazy (and great) stuff they put on that program? It is so completely over the top (and complete genius).

On that note, the recent episode on tourette's syndrome may have been the funniest one yet.

Clever Scientologists... They sneakily hijacked this thread getting the South Park 'tards all lathered up.
Masterful.
Hail Xenu!

Robert! Put down that E-Meter.

With all of 5 posts, ya can't exactly say it's been hijacked...The Independent's thread however was hysterically funny. I bet they burnt all their engrams over there.


Hmmm, I wonder if Cecil Adams reads the Independent. He posted this today...

Did you hear about the dyslexic devil worshiper who sold his soul to SANTA?

or the agnostic dyslexic insomniac that stayed up all night wondering if there really was a dog?
