Oh, geez. The 'Jesuit' one really made me laugh. I go to Gonzaga University...and the Jesuits practically MADE our basketball team. ;)

Hey, could you run my "Catholic Word of the Day" on your blog? I've got it up to 16 entries now, and I've dumped a lot of my time and thought into it, made sure it's at least sorta funny.

You have a ton more people visiting your blog than mine, hopefully I can get in on some of that sweet, sweet traffic... :).
