Well hello there, good looking

Sep 18 2013 Published by under hilarity

Hi again. It's been a while since my last post. It turns out that my friend Prof-Like Substance was right: Year 3 on the tenure track does, in fact, suck goat balls. I am playing whack-a-mole with various grant-writing/paper-submitting/teaching/grad-student/postdoc/administration/colleagues issues. And that is the easy part, because LIFE has decided to also throw me some curve balls in the last year. I can't really blog about it right now, but hopefully soon. I miss you guys.

So what finally drew me back into this space? Hilarity, of course. The other day I was chatting with a friend who's kids go to a private (religious) school. And I learned about one of the most entertaining homework assignments of all time. Here it is: take an advertisement and use the tagline to describe God. Here was a common one:

God is like Nike: Just do it!

At first I thought this was weird because commercializing god, blah blah, whatev. BUT YOU GUYS...the potential for hilarity is awesome! Here are some favorites of mine* (start each with "God is like"):

Calvin Klein: Between love and madness lies obsession
Sony: Make Believe
GE: Imagination at work
KFC: It's finger lickin' good!

OK, I should stop now. I think something is on fire.


*h/t @Bam294 for collaborating, or at least laughing, on several of these
