Rites of Easter

It’s almost Easter, and here we go again: the annual news story on Philippine crucifixion rituals.

CNN sent intrepid reporter to _____ Island, and self is happy to report that this practice (which “began in the early 1960s”, according to CNN newscaster), has progressed to the point that now the nails being used to nail devotees to the cross are “disinfected stainless steel” (rather than rusty old iron, as formerly)

Reporter’s “horror” quickly turned into “amusement” as he watched the crucified descend and pose happily for pictures with tourists.

Sooo Filipino!

Stay tuned, dear blog readers, stay tuned.
