I went to a Catholic grade school, not by choice. Religion's popularity is in part due to having it forced upon the impressionable and confused who have no voice. Like date rape. 

I used to have a set of rosary beads (again, not by choice) that were baby blue except for the flesh colored Jesus who was pinned to his baby blue cross with these ridiculously miniature nails. 

I also used to have a toy Batmobile with a removable Batman & Robin. 

When Sister Joanette discovered Jesus had come down off his cross and was now riding shotgun in the Batmobile I was taught a very memorable lesson in penance. 

I never saw Jesus or the Batmobile again.


  1. Robin, being an minor, and Catholic priests being Catholic priests...
