Up-Close "View of the Pit"

(IC and Sic* are mulling over financial woes, and getting a bit punchy.)

Sic: You know, we could start a website selling little figurines of God, only they have the buyer's face. We could call it .
IC: Hmmm, there's a solution. Take the "straight to hell, don't pass go" route?
Sic: Yeah, basically, but it would take off. You know those "My Twinn" dolls DD#1 wanted? Narcissism incarnate? Case closed.
IC: There's always money in idolatry futures, I guess.
Sic: We've got to make sure that we get a little figurine of George Burns though.
IC: OK, so if I put this on our tax form, what would I put down as my profession? "Professional Idolator?"
Sic: You're going to blog about this, aren't you.
IC: Yep.

p.s. I wouldn't check out I haven't checked, but I bet you it's a porn site.

I checked. It's actually about idolatry in the form of HD DVDs.

Which is what I was going to say, but I would also add the you, IC, are funny, and doesn't make sense to me as an HD DVD site...

The Ironic Catholic said...

Thanks folks.


By the way, in case it wasn't crystal clear--sic was suggesting in jest.

SherryTex said...

It was clear.

We could all be very rich if we would just sell out.

PraiseDivineMercy said...

I just wanted to check.

You could always write a book.

I'd buy your book, but only if you autograph it to me personally and put a picture of God on it with my face.

The Ironic Catholic said...

Adoro, I'd even cloak the photoshop in your alma mater's current sweatshirt. ;)

SIC said...

You know, nothing against IC here, but my original idea was actually that people would get to customize their own little personal "God dolls" -- you know, each customer could make God in their own image. Kind of like we do already, only this would be an opportunity to cash in on the relativistic nature of our culture.

Sad thing is, it'd probably go over big.
