Truth Is Stranger #63: "God Is Brazilian"

BRASILIA (AFP) - "God is Brazilian," Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva said Tuesday in relation to his government's announcement earlier this month that massive new oil reserves had been discovered offshore.

"This discovery... proves that God is Brazilian," he said during a speech at his presidential palace in the capital Brasilia.

His theological assertion is not original: Brazilians have long claimed that God shares their nationality on the basis of the natural resources at their disposal.

Well, I guess that explains Brazilian domination in the World Cup.

Does this mean we're going to have to celebrate the Mass in Portuguese? If so, we're toast.

Story here.

I didn't understand the new header the other day because the only thing that loaded was the eyebrows. Now I get it.

It also means that the brazilian bikini is divinely mandated.
