How to lose your appetite in .006 seconds

Ok. So I decided to take a break here at the 'ole office. I sat down, revved up Firefox, took a spoonful of Yoplait...and nearly launched it across the room.

What I was looking at was this dude to the left, with his mascara, long hair and beard, and that plasticy twist tie thing wrapped around his head like a crown of thorns.

It appears the rectal rangers of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (only click that link if you are brave) held a "hunky Jesus" contest.

On Easter Sunday.

From the Sydney Morning Herald:

San Franciscans have flocked to Dolores Park in the city to compete in, or watch, what has become an Easter Sunday tradition - the "Hunky Jesus" competition.

Officiated by a gay charity group known as the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, which has been active in San Francisco since 1979, the contest pits costumed and usually scantily clad men against each other for the distinction of being declared the most attractive Jesus.

Catholics have labelled the annual pageant blasphemous, considering that previous entrants have included "old school Jesus", "surfer Jesus" and "zombie Jesus", an irreverent take on the Easter message of Christ rising from the dead.

But the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence insist the contest is all part of their mission to "promote universal joy and expiate stigmatic guilt".

Here's an idea ladies, why not have a hunky Mohammed contest on the first day of Rammadan instead?

Probably because they know catholics don't kidnap blasphemers and hack their heads off with bread knives when they get pissed. Muslims have been known to do that.

Anyone know when Kalifornia is slated to fall into the Pacific?
