Read link for reference if you're not familiar.

If it goes down during the present Middle East conflicts, you heard it here first.

7. Nut jobs all
I almost wish the rapture or whatever the equally crazy end-times Jews and Muslims call it would actually happen. The world would be a much kinder place if we could spirit the fucking fundamentalist element off of it.

8. It's time for some fuckin' VEAL, man!
I know, I know, veal is the meat that dare not speak its name. At least on this forum.

But look: We steal this red heifer right now, before he gets any bigger. We fly him to a halal slaughterhouse in the Northeast. Before the fundies know what hit 'em, we can have this heifer bopped on the head, dressed, cut, wrapped and sitting in the meat aisle of the Price Chopper. And they won't have a sacrifice that will enable them to build the Third Temple.

I believe I would like my share turned into Cordon Bleu.

Stupid question what is Cordon Bleu? is it made with blue cheese?

10. watch out for the revivalist preacher cattle ranchers:
http://www.modbee.com/life/faithvalues/story/12456248p-...

Conversely, some Jewish groups in Jerusalem hope to clear the path for their own messiah by rebuilding a temple on a site now occupied by one of Islam's holiest shrines. Artisans have re-created priestly robes of white linen, gem-studded breastplates, silver trumpets and solid-gold menorahs to be used in the Holy Temple along with two 6-ton marble cornerstones for the building's foundation.

Then there is Clyde Lott, a Mississippi revivalist preacher and cattle rancher. He is trying to raise a unique herd of red heifers to satisfy an obscure injunction in the Book of Numbers: the sacrifice of a blemish-free red heifer for purification rituals needed to pave the way for the messiah. So far, only one of his cows has been verified by rabbis as worthy, meaning they couldn't find even three white or black hairs on the animal.

Linking these efforts is a belief that modern technologies and global communications have made it possible to induce completion of God's plan within this generation.

:wtf:
