Mary, Mother of "Yahoo"shua.

Okay, it probably isn't that funny if I have to also say that Jesus in Hebrew is Yehoshua and that since Hebrew text consists only of consonants, it isn't too outrageous that we tweak it a bit for fun ;)

"Our Lady of Yahoo search for us"

My question is shouldn't they have a statue of St. Anthony instead in front of Yahoo?

KaleJ said...

Jeff,
No because Yahoo isn't really a search engine but more of a mediatrix of all internet directories.

Mary's BACK is to the building... and the blessings come foward.

Official search engine (okay, kalej:directory matrix) of St. Blogs' Parish.

or

The Building Admin Department at Yahoo had every confidence in the competence of the landscape designer they had hired to work on the grounds. Still, his penchant for concrete statuary puzzled them.

CMinor said...

Mediatrix. Not matrix. Mediatrix.

I knew I should have stayed with paper and pencil.
