Captain Caption LII

"A star?  Really?  Is that the best you could do?  You couldn't be a normal person and get a Trip-Tik from the Damascus AAA, could you?  The way things are going, it'll be January 6th before we even get there.  What, this?  It's mryyh.  I don't know.  It was lying around when I cleaned up the garage.  It's not like all of us have gold hanging around, you know.  Or that frankenstein business, for that matter.  What?  No, I don't think we have to become Catholics."

    1. I think the guy who had all that gold could afford to have someone else clean it.

  2. To be fair they would become Jews, not catholics. I think. I'm not sure at what point Judaism split into Christianity and Judaism.

    1. Sometime in the first century. It was a huge deal to get Gentiles on board, but it was something Paul thought was the way to go. A big sticking point (no pun intended) was circumcision. Everyone was pretty much catholic until the Reformation.

    1. He could probably get an X-Box for that myrrh.
      If electricity was invented in the first century, that is.
      "Call of Duty: The Punic Wars" would be awesome.

  5. Hey human, Al,

    Are those the three wise men? I always wondered about humans and those three are staring a Halley's comet. Arf!

    Pawsitive wishes,

    Penny :)

  6. And worst of all the star burnt out millions of years ago, so he is technically giving nothing at all as it no longer exists.

    1. Related to this, I remember reading somewhere that, when we look at the stars, we're looking at the past.
      Yeah. My...mind...was...blown.

  7. The whole thing was a made up excuse they gave their wives so they could go on a beer drinking trip with just the boys!

    1. As long as it wasn't the light on the sewage treatment plant, they were good to go.
      Bonus points if you can guess the movie to which I allude.

    1. Chuckles? I haven't seen them in years. I never liked the licorice ones, though. But, they WERE good for chewing up and winging them at the kids in the front row of the movie theater.
