    I don't get why Catholic funerals have to be so goddamn Jesusy.

    Never been to a Southern Baptist funeral I take it?

    When did the Red Sox become "the Sox?" It used to be that if you referred to "the Sox," you were referring unambiguously to the White Sox. (This is evidenced by the fact that the White Sox have almost always had "Sox" on their jerseys and/or hats.) When I was in time of youth, no one would dream of referring to the Red Sox that way.

    Everybody knows that the Red Sox are the Sux.

    Right, BoSox is what you'd say to refer to the Red Sox. But not just "the Sox." Until fairly recently, that is.

    These are indeed next-level Jesusy.

    My grandmother, a good Southern Baptist, died three years ago June, and her eulogy was given by her minister. He talked for probably 20 minutes, and I'm pretty sure 15 of it was preaching. It was seriously like being at a Sunday service.

    I find the Eucharist to be particularly disturbing at Christian funerals. It's like 'hey, your friend is dead. Let's pretend to drink the blood and eat this other dead guy.'

    The White Sox are still a team?

    This comment just appeared in my FB feed. L'inc is not a FB friend. Is this irritating mode of posting a "thing"? I thought it was just l'inc's annoying schtick.
