I read this on facebook and had to share it:

A man and wife were getting divorced and fighting for custody of their child. The woman told the judge, "I gave birth to this child with much pain and suffering. It came from my own womb, and therefore I deserve custody." So the judge looked at the man and asked, "What do you have to say about this?" The man said, "Your honor, if I put a dollar in a vending machine and a can of soda comes out, who does the soda belong to, me or the machine?" ;D

The recent slough of photos with a distinctively political message has been moved to Politics. If you don't yet have access to the private forum but would like to see these photos, please send Fr. Chris a private message to request this access. Thank you.

Thank you. They are neither clever, well executed, nor "edgy". Derivative boring garbage.

Agreed.  I was very disappointed.  In other news: way too much money was spent on the Superbowl (ticket prices, advertising dollars, bonuses, etc.).
