2, 3, 7, 8, 9 and 10

The ones Shrub breaks daily.

From an email from the younger of my two older sisters.

Cowboy's Ten Commandments posted on the wall at Cross Trails Church in Fairlie, Texas.

(1) Just one God.
(2) Honor yer Ma & Pa.
(3) No telling tales or gossipin'.
(4) Git yourself to Sunday meeting.
(5) Put nothin' before God.
(6) No foolin' around with another fellow's gal.
(7) No killin'.
(8) Watch yer mouth.
(9) Don't take what ain't yers.
(10) Don't be hankerin' for yer buddy's stuff
I wonder which ones this silly human finds most important? (Thanks to Tonya for bringing that depressing bit o' humanity to my attention.)


  1. I would venture to say he also breaks 1 and 5. My guess is that he's about a 50 cent cab ride from thinking he IS God.

  2. Or the Australian version

    1. Beer is god.
    2. Honour your respective beer distilleries.
    3. No lyin' about how watchin' sport is ok without a beer.
    4. Git yerslef to the football game on Sunday.
    5. Put nothin' before a stubbie of the amber ale.
    6. No foolin' around with boutique beers.
    7. No killin' unless they steal yer beer or unless they are a poofter who drinks wine.
    8. Watch yer mouth. No dribblin' of beer.
    9. No drinkin' somene else's beer when they go to point percy at the porcelain.
    10. Don't be lustin' after your mate's home brew kit.

  3. Shrub be the Lebron James of the Jebusites. He's a gonna lead us outta teh post cold-war Egypt.

    Can I get a hallelujah?


    5. Put nothin' before a stubbie of the amber ale.

    Yah. See. Problem is, I'm more a whiskey guy. And I'm workin' on my poofterishness right now by tryin' to drink more red wine for my heart, so...

    Still, ya gotta give 'er a good RAmen!, eh.

  4. "Our currency even says, 'In God We Trust.'

    Ah, if so sayeth the currency, then it must be true.
    Money sure talks in the USA, Eh?

    OK then, shall I pack my suitcases and move to a more sane country?

  5. You know, when we had prayer in the schools, black people had equality, women weren't treated like marital property, children weren't forced to work in factories, and there were no wars. Oh, wait....

  6. Alas! I believe their be no more sane countries. They've all got sheople in 'em.


    Brando, You say that like it's a bad thing .. oh.. wait. Dig it.

    {shakin'head} I just read a report on how child labor rising steadily in India.

    namaste irregardless...

  7. If I moved to a more sane country, they'd hate me because they'd think I'm an insane American.

    As for that link with the clipping, even though I think that tolerance is increasing for other groups, atheists have the longest way to go and are still the most hated and misunderstood group. Even though statistics are showing higher numbers of people who don't claim a religious affiliation, people who claim to be atheist or agnostic is still around 2%. I always have to be a damned two-percenter no matter what I do in life.

  8. Yep. That's us. Silly Two-Percenters.


  9. I wish I knew it was really just 2%.

  10. Yeah. I doubt that there's an extraordinarily effective - read "reliable" - way to determine the true numbers. My guess is it's a Lot higher when you include folks who don't bother even wondering 'bout the supernatural. They figure "shit happens" and include "God" as one of those things.

    That's less "belief" than apathy, eh. Of that I'm sure there's more than an abundance of practitioners...

  11. that thing totally split my guts in to when i read it. i felt like the dog coming out of water and needing to shake it all off except it seemed i couldn't.
