Two more things

Toonhead always has the best links. For a good time, watch this 1967 short film. If you have kids, they'll love it too.

• I've got an aunt who's more Catholic than most of the other relatives. She lives far away but always makes sure to send birthday cards, and the young kids also get a little token gift in the mail. This year? She sent Ben this book a wee Bible pop-up story. (That link is to the same book on eBay, with a "buy it now" price of $2.95 and shipping costs of $3.95. Brand new, the book runs $3.95, and I'm guessing my aunt got it for a buck or less because that's always been her thang, the buck-or-less token gifts for kids she doesn't need to get anything for.) It's sweet of her to send it, yes, but Bible stories for heathen children? They leave the house quickly.

They never make sweet pop-ups of Sodom and Gomorrah...

Or the Song of Solomon...

I'm a biblical pervert.
