A Little (very little) Theology Nerd Humor

I linked to this increasingly funny Pyromaniacs thread from Craig's blog (hm, do I get anything on my own or just from Craig?) and laughed until I was ashamed of my Theology Nerdiness. A few of you will take pride in not getting these (looking at you, Rochester), but Christine and a couple others might enjoy my contributions to "Book Titles for Which I'm Still Waiting" (and a few belonging to other folks that I just couldn't resist including):

oooo ... harsh, Jonny!

(psst ... Laura ... um ... what did i ever do to you that you would "out" me in such a fashion. what's with the naming and shaming! Great! Now when I go to the girly Kitchen Tea this evening with the other chicks from Crossroads, none of them will talk to me. "Hmph, I hear she only reads theology books. She's probably never even HEARD of Anne of Green Gables!"

wow laura, some of those are so far over my head i can't even see the bottom of them.

p.s. do you have all the pictures from the europe trip? i seem to be missing most of mine. in fact all but about 24 of them. if you do, you could put them on a memory card and bring them home with you when you come back to visit us all sometime soon. (hint--hint--hint)

p.p.s. it seems my p.s. is longer than my s. silly me.

p.p.p.s. you are currently missing logan county's great cultural event- i.e. the Logan County Fair and Rodeo. demolition derby is sunday... i know you are seriously considering that 18 hour drive so you can go, it's the highlight of the year, you know.

Oh... I get it. It's sarcasm.

I particularly like the RC Sproul title.
