"There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations--these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub, and exploit--immortal horrors or everlasting splendours. This does not mean that we are to be perpetually solemn. We must play. But our merriment must be of the kind (and it is, in fact, the merriest kind) which exists between people who have, from the outset, taken each other seriously--no flippancy, no superiority, no presumption. And our charity must be real and costly love, with deep feeling for the sins in spite of which we love the sinners--no mere tolerance, or indulgence which parodies love as flippancy parodies merriment. Next to the Blessed Sacrament itself, your neighbor is the holiest object presented to your senses. If he is your Christian neighbour, he is holy in almost the same way, for in him also Christ vere latitat, the glorifier and the glorified, Glory Himself, is truly hidden."

The unamused child in the background makes this video at least 20 times better.

I agree with Andrew. That kid won't realize how awesome her parents are until about 23 years from now.......just as Andrew is just coming to grips with that truth now about his own parents.... :)))

These parents aren't lip-syncing, but they also aren't driving and there's no kid. There's also a few other versions here that also crack me up.

On another note, I want to read the Thinklings crowd talking about the Noah movie out this tomorrow, particularly the video I shared on my blog Monday. See link in my name. How does that sit with y'all?

I linked to Greg Thornbury's good thoughts in another post. Both of those things have encouraged me to see this movie, though not in theaters, because I'm too cheap for that.

Are you guys strictly Bigfoot-only, or do you do Loch Ness too?
