Saturday Silliness


CREDITS:   Jesus Fish Catch is from Sacred Sandwich; Why Do I Live Here is an offshoot of the popular site, I Can Has Cheezburger; the World’s Largest Ten Commandments is located in Murphy, North Carolina at Field of the Woods — note the size of the cars in the foreground to get an idea of the perspective here.

Driving at the Great Smokey Mountain’s Highway 294 in Murphy, North Carolina may be an uplifting experience for drivers and passengers as it is where the World’s Largest Ten Commandments can be located. A favorite tourist attraction, the Fields of the Wood also houses other world breaking biblical monuments of Golgotha and Joseph’s Tomb. The Fields of the Woods was built in 1945 by the followers of the Church of God of Prophecy, a church that now has more than 700,000 members in 115 countries, led by Ambrose Jessup Tomlinson. The 300 feet-wide tableaux is composed of individual concrete letters 5 feet tall and 4 feet wide of white-painted concrete and is occupying a mountainside.

Here’s another Peanuts column from this blog.

    • You’re not going to believe this, but the first thing I was going to do this morning was do a color enhancement on that old newspaper scan, now that I’ve learned how.

      I’ve repaired the original post from June ’09, but since that was more than a year ago, I might run it again in the link list tomorrow.

      I love the line “We give our money in envelopes.” They’re totally majoring on superficialities.
