All right, dried figs are okay, especially when they're chopped up and added to other stuff...cookies, or breads.
My parente loved fresh figs with cream, and we had a tree in the back yard when I was a kid. Gag me!
In 1957 dad had all the fruit trees (peaches, plum, apricot) removed, and replaced them with a see-ment pond. What a waste!
(At least he spared the avocado tree...because it's on the other side of the driveway. It's enormous now, and still producing!)
I like Fig Newtons!
I hadn't been there in a while; it's a hoot.
IIRC, the older goddess religions venerated fig/ficus trees, and when the Israelites invaded Canaan they were ordered by YHWH to destroy her temples, especially the trees that grew beside the goddess' altars.
Then there was the incident in the NT when Jeebus cursed a fig tree because there was no fruit on it, and he was hungry...it wasn't the right season.
You'd think that ghod's second persona, who supposedly created an entire universe, raised Lazarus from the dead, and did other magic tricks, could whomp up a ripe fig, or a full meal, out of a handful of atoms.
There's a web site called "God Hates Figs"... I don't know what it's all about, but I'm not overly fond of figs, either.
Sentient, I'd rather see that sign than, "God Hates Fags." (stoopid, ignant xtians.)
Very disturbing. I hope my neighbors don't put up this sign.
Looks like I was taken in by a Poe!
The reworked Boy Scouts poster is #37 in Austin Cline's series of satirical posters (and explanations) on atheism.about.com highlighting absurd Christian Right beliefs. The page on Hitchens Watch even uses the same filename for the image, "Boy-Scouts-Bigotry-e.jpg".
In the larger version at atheism.about.com, the engraving on the sword is clearly visible: "Bigotry, Discrimination" replacing the original poster's "Be Prepared".
I too love that "gay agenda" poster!
TFA, thanks for showing us the original Boy Scouts / war bonds poster that the "Hitchens Watch" forgery was based on.
They really thought they could get away with it, when image searching is widely available? And that the typeface Impact (created in 1965 and well known through LOLcats) wouldn't scream anachronism?
