Why Stop At SEVEN Deadly Sins?

The wisdom of the Christian tradition is never enough, is it? We've got to be American individualists and leave our stamp on everything? Tongue-in-cheek case in point:

Nominate your very own deadly sin at (pretty hilarious) deadlysins.com .

(Yes, it is a dot com. There has to be some deep meaning in that.)

Other pieces of deadlysins.com worth checking out:

Be forewarned: when you buy the shirt I imagine you will get beset with
1. pride, as you have a snazzy colorful shirt that proclaims your (self-)righteousness and sin-attentiveness,
2. envy, as you will wish you had thought of the sins on a shirt idea yourself,
3. gluttony, as it is stretchy material that allows overindulgence,
4. anger, when the colors likely bleed in the wash,
5. greed, as you wish you had bought the mug as well, and
6. sloth, as it encourages couch potato comfy do-nothingness.

(I ain't touching #7, lust.)

I'd say that verbal responses without mental activity should be a sin, let me illustrate:

"'Morning, Bob, how are you?"
"Not much."
or
"Hey, St. Jimbob. what's going on?"
"Fine."

I imagine that most married men will commit this sin, usually while they're watching TV, or while blogging.

"Honey, I think you need to look at the refrigerator. Something's wrong with the door seal."
"uh-huh, sure."
