Religulous  
Well you already know what I did on Sunday.

On Saturday, I saw Religulous, the new smartass documentary by Bill Maher and Larry Charles that points out some of the wackier examples of religious beliefs and practices. For the most part I loved it. It was fun and frightening and Maher can be very engaging.

The only big criticism I have is that they should have just stuck with Christianity. That's where all their A material was. Jesusland and the Creationism Museum were priceless, but when they strayed into Islam it felt strained and tacked on. You could tell Bill didn't really know much about Islam, so the best he could do was make fun of it from the standpoint of an uninformed observer.

And they totally fumbled making fun of Scientology, which should have been the easiest target of the bunch. I kept wishing that instead of doing a movie, they did it as a television series, where they could focus more on specific aspects of on religions, rather than trying to cover everything with one swipe. Still, I enjoyed it and if it sounds like something you'd enjoy, you almost certainly will.

I think I need the rest of this photo spread. That is some awesome ink.

That was all that I saw, but if I come across more, I'll let you know.

I just can't get with the cow, though. I mean, you know? Do you want people to be looking at a cow when they're back there?

I wondered about that too! I guess she's a Taurus.

That is no excuse. You don't see me with a virgin tattooed on my ass.

I did see the worst tattoo on the internet, it was a woman who had Rachael Ray tattooed on her back. That has got to be the most disconcerting rear-entry sex ever.

Egads! Rachel Ray?

My zodiac tattoo would have to be two naked boys, so I'm probably not going there either....

It's possible she's from Texas, or a fan of Texas. It looks like a longhorn, after all.

I hadn't thought of that...
