Yesterday, The Wolfman left a comment regarding my fabulous blermonTM on "Bible Talk For Modern Times"  that I should probably respond to.  

I think I just dangled my participle there.  Sorry 'bout that.  I hate when that happens.  It's embarrassing.  Like leaving underwear on the clothesline.  Anyhow, The Wolfman writes:

Some words you have to be careful of using that are in the Bible, 
as expressed in the previous discussions on Balaam 
and his "posterior equination of transportation". 
One example of this is 1 Kings 21:21 in the KJV- 
check it out and make a few comments on that, bleacher boy.

Awooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! (Ouch) 

First off, I absolutely LOVE being called "Bleacher Boy".  Makes me think I'm some sort of a super hero.  

"Bleacher Boy VS The Magic PEW-tred!"  

"The baptistry's overflowing!  
Bleacher Boy, where are you?!"  

Somethin' like that. The t-shirts would be fantastic. I know that.

But back to The Wolfman's intriguing comment. He is clearly referring here to the verse in I Kings where disaster is promised to be brought down on those who expel their bladders on walls.  

It's not a topic you hear preached EVERY morning in pulpits across the country, this is true.  But I have NO trouble discussing it here, or any other verse.  After all, it is IN the Bible and it's no secret that for centuries, people (particularly college guys) have been known to emulate this verse from time to time.  Particularly on game days.

I will admit, it's not a HUGE problem where I live, but if it WAS, I would support the Biblical example here in I Kings and bring down serious disaster on anyone who felt the need to do that on any walls of mine.  That goes for my front yard too.  

And they REALLY don't wanna mess with Gidget.  Once she gets started on 'em, she really has no off switch.  It's not pretty. 

So, case close.  Bible closed.  I'm moving on.  Preachin' is easy.

I think the bigger question here is one we have brought up before in regard to The Wolfman.  "What in the world is he dropping on himself at the end of his comments?"  Once again, he ends his comment this time with these disturbing words:

"Awooooooooooooooooooo!  (Ouch)."

The Wolfman worries me.  If he keeps this self-destructive behavior up, there won't be enough left of him to leave his in-depth comments.  If only there was some kind of a preaching-super-hero-blogging-guy around who could save The Wolfman from himself.  

Well, maybe there is...just maybe...there is...

"Look!  Up by the Pulpit!  
It's a Preacher!  
It's a Blogger!  

I LOVE  that. I wonder if Gidget knows anything about making t-shirts?

As together we stand and sing.



  1. one problem with bleacher boy t-shirts: Unless you control who wears them, suddenly your super-hero image will be stretched across every sweaty fat belly at every pot-luck dinner every Sunday of summer. Wait a minute, that is a lot of t-shirt sales! who cares about stylish appearance? make them! sell them!

  2. I'll take a Large please...what's you're outfit going to look like? (i can see the halloween sales now, just ringing up!)

    ahhhh....imagine the marketing: "Bleacherboy 3D" (the movie), cartoons, comics, a Wii game, maybe an iphone app???

  3. I like to see the game Risk converted into a Bleacher Boy global evangelism game (small baptistry included). Imagine the world covered with little red pulpits! Use the Australia strategy (it is a winner)!

  4. I would like my share of the profits for the "Bleacher Boy" franchise to go to the home for unwed lycanthropes, a charity which I serve as a board member and president.

    Awooooooooooooooooooooooooo Awoooooouch! (oops)

    PS- I am offended that you would see this as a "vs" relationship. We are in the trenches together in this battle of good vs. fact, I could be your sidekick in the superhero world (Bleacher Boy and Wolfman...!) What a great combination! I'll contact Stan Lee and see what he says.

  5. Beware of wolves in sheeps clothing.... I don't know what that has to do with anything but I like saying it a lot!
