Oddities I Meant To Mention

Back in the 90's....yeah, way back then...there was a site on the Internet (you can still find it but it doesn't work) devoted to "Blue Dog."

It was all the rage for a day or a month or two...a cgi script where the dog barked.

It was the 90's...we were easily impressed.

Real impressed actually...

I don't know if that's where the Blue State vs Red State thing came from...but anyway that dog didn't hunt...

The only reason I mention the blue dog, besides the fact Amy is sleeping away and John is playing with his new turtle (it's about a half inch long) that I read a story this week about a green dog...which if it not the name of a modern rock band it should be...

The green dog is actually a golden retriever puppy...and the owner swears he didn't dye the poor dog green for publicity.

Guess we'll have to wait for that one to come out in the wash...

The other oddity I meant to mention this week was Jesus Juice...seriously.

This has apparently been in the works for some time...a wine actually bearing Jesus name.

One problem...the label bears the image of someone else:

Michael Jackson isn't pleased...imagine how Jesus must feel.

The guy who came up with the idea, a CBS News Producer, now says it was all a gag...he never meant to market it.

To tell you the truth, I bet a bottle of that on the Communion table would bring a lot of bleary-eyed Sunday-only Christians to Christ pretty quick.
