It’s a great deal! I got one in 1985, and it also included a few marked-up porn movie catalog pages. I never officiated any marriages, though.

Very nice pack.

(If you’re too impatient to wait for the ULC, you can perform unofficial, short term marriages right away)

I’ve had this running thought lately that marriages should have an automatic expiration date.

Should I get this or 40 pounds of baking soda?

SIDENOTE: The Atari ST had an extended ASCII character set, among which were four quadrants of J.R. Dobbs pipe-clenching braincase.

I’ve had my card in my wallet since before the very first X-Day.

Praise “Bob”!

I will find the money to get this. Literally. I’m going to keep an eye out for change on the ground, or loose bills fluttering about, and save it up until I have enough.

I’m more of a Pastafarian, myself. But I like Bob@

Definitely don’t regret my $35. I still haven’t had the chance to perform any short term marriages though :c

I remember running across this stuff and Bob Barker’s SCHWA illustrations in my first year of university. For a small town kid, it was all so delightfully weird.

I met Puzzling Evidence two weeks ago and it was surreal shaking the very hand that shot dead J. R. Bob Dobbs.

I was ordained back in '98 shortly before the original date for X-Day. Sadly I’ve lost most of my ordainment materials in the years since…maybe it’s time to re-up.

I have to admit I must be the only person who doesn’t understand.

I would guess it’s a pretend cult and that’s the gag. I’ve known the guy with the pipe is Bob Dobbs for many many years but I never really got an explanation as to what the hell it all is

In any case I’d be willing to spend thirty-five bucks to marry people just so I could legitimately give mainstream religion the finger in a new way

You literally can’t go wrong when it’s ETERNAL SALVATION or TRIPLE YOUR MONEY BACK!

And yes: it’s “just” a “joke” (only kidding, it’s “really” “serious”)
