Videos of the day -- more from Amanda

Since posting this video a week ago, I couldn't resist checking out some more of "Amanda the Jedi's" material.  She has quite a sharp eye (and tongue) for the relentless absurdities of religion:

A Catholic cleric in Tennessee banned the Harry Potter books from a Catholic school under his authority because he believes the spells in them can actually conjure demons.  And, yes, the Catholic Church still officially has exorcists.  And they wonder why they have a hard time spreading their belief system among twenty-first-century people.

Ex-Pope He Who Zings Rats a.k.a. Benedict XVI issued a public statement about the Church's endless child-molestation scandals.  He really shouldn't have bothered.

"He Who Zings Rats," LOL. The Catholic Church is the most clueless bunch of self-serving idiots ever. They'd be funny if they weren't also so evil.

She reminds me a bit of Rose Lavelle (almost pretty but not quite). BTW, the Harry Potter movies are rubbish because they`re like a bizarre combination of The Childrens Film Foundation and Industrial Light and Magic, or Keith Chegwin in a head-on collision with Richard Edlund ! ?, very odd and incredibly embarrassing.

Debra: let's hope it won't be long before it's purely a laughing matter.

Lady M: No clue -- you certainly keep enough spooky-looking stuff around that the demons should be giving you a break.

Steve: "Almost" pretty? Yeesh.

I'm not a huge fan of Harry Potter, but the books are pretty decent light entertainment, and there's no doubt they've drawn a lot of people into reading. I'm not so familiar with the movies.

I looked Amanda up. She lives in Canada. Can we make a reservation for her basement in November, just in case?

Steve is our local troll. He uses famous people's names instead of his own. Or he will pick off a real user name to make you think it's not him. The give away is no icon picture. Here's a comment from one of my recent posts.
Steve Prefontaine has left a new comment on your post "4648 - Sex":
Why bother when there are millions of graphic sexual images freely available at the touch of a button.

I think I have tracked him down to user IDs of spod999 and spod1000. I delete him. I'm going to do a post on him on Monday.

Mike: I suspect she's booked solid.

After seeing your comment I looked up the name "Steve Prefontaine" and found that it is indeed the name of a famous (and deceased) person. I honestly don't follow sports. I'll be on the lookout for him in the future. I thought this particular comment of his was a bit odd, but not trollish.
