Christ must have gotten the space diamond depicted in Danssaert's Soviet stamp collection.

Well, if Christ is the head of the Catholic and Greek Orthodox churches then, yup, he's rich.

This is probably the least strange sign in English to be found in Congo.

I agree with Matt. Probably much weirder signage in Congo. I'd love to see pics!

Who is Rich and when did he become the Christ? Were they having open tryouts?

It's not in Congo, but there are signs in South Africa that remind men it is not ok to beat women. I'm not sure if it is weird or just sad.

Years ago I did home improvement work. I was working in one of the bad, bad areas of NO (which is why I quit doing that kind of work). I noticed a billboard that simply said...

Thou Shalt Not Kill

I just thought it was odd that people need to be reminded of that.

It is odd, Maxx, but you can't deny that it's also necessay these days, what with GTA corrupting our kids and all.

Richie Christ: you've never heard ofhim? Oh man, he's great! He came to a wedding reception I was a oce. He turned water into margaritas!
