There's a short post over at Rohana's blog where Rohana, a young Muslim lady whose native language is presumably not English, is wondering why she speaks to God in English. We exchange a couple of comments, and the exchange leads to the following:

Yankee Doodle: Hey, next time you're talking with Him, put in a good word for your infidel friend, Yankee Doodle. ;)

Rider of Rohan: Lool. Sure I'll do that. What should I tell Him ? erm.. to make you one of the fidels ??? :P

I highly encourage you to visit Rohana's blog, but beware: She has a singular wit!

While you're out-and-about, don't forget to check out the blog of a seasoned relic from yesteryear!

The funniest thing I have seen in a long time (and how appropriate, since it relates to recent scandals on the US political scene) is from Pela's blog: In the Gents' Room.

I was barely sitting down when I heard a voice from the other stall saying: "Hi, how are you?"

I'm not the type to start a conversation in the restroom but I don't know what got into me, so I answered, somewhat embarrassed, "Doin' just fine!"

And the other person says: "So what are you up to?"

What kind of question is that? At that point, I'm thinking this is too bizarre so I say: "Uhhh, I'm like you, just traveling!"

At this point I am just trying to get out as fast as I can when I hear another question. "Can I come over?"

Ok, this question is just too weird for me but I figured I could just be polite and end the conversation. I tell him "No.......I'm a little busy right now!!!"

Then I hear the person say nervously... "Listen, I'll have to call you back. There's an idiot in the other stall who keeps answering all my questions!"

Religion is the curse of the thinking classes.

'Infidel', of course is a classic "I'm OK, You're not OK" epithet.
