He used to be Gavin Paslow, security guard. Now, thanks to thousands of dollars worth of body modification, he's become Diablo Denefer, Devil Man. But he says he's actually not satanic at all, "it's just a piece of fun." He's hoping to get a real, organic tail to complete his look. [catholic.org]
I wonder why the trailer neglects to tell us that the dog houses the reincarnated soul of the little kid's father, who croaked in a car accident. Read the synopsis of the rest of the film to learn of its heart-warming tale of death, malevolence, vivisection, and heartbreak. A feel-good pic!
This is a picture of Christopher Schaffer, a Pastafarian minister, being sworn in as a town councilman in Pomfret, NY. All hail the church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster as it gains power and presence in American politics.
Back in 2009, I posted about The Pope's Cologne, a fragrance supposedly identical to that worn by Pope Pius IX. But I failed to mention what is perhaps the cologne's most interesting feature.

Deborah Sengl's "crucified chicken" is currently on display at the city museum of Wiener Neustadt, in Austria. A lot of catholics don't like it one bit, but Sengl insists she's being misunderstood. It's not about christianity, she says. Instead it's "a statement about the pain inflicted by butchers during food processing."
In an effort to make Jesus more appealing to young audiences, the Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn recently came up with a new ad campaign that identifies Jesus as "the original hipster." Maybe I don't fully understand the word 'hipster,' but I didn't think it was necessarily a compliment to call someone that. [theweek.com]
