It’s multi-use is going to be tested to the enth degree, bet on it.

#4

It loses some of the true madness of Jack Chick’s comics


#5

There have a been a few Chick-inspired mock tracts over the years. I think it’s interesting how the popularity of that particular style of religious handbill led to it becoming a meme of sorts, a template for others to use for their own agendas.


#6

That looks like the cheap rough stuff that feels like sand paper.


#7

Don’t you trust Trump to give you real sandpaper?


#8

Butt, it’s unforgettable!


#9

What a charming coincidence. I used a public restroom today and found a Jack Chick tract waiting for me. I had no idea anybody was still distributing those!


#10

The small hands one uses ‘alot’ -and my estimation of the IQ of the creator was lowered dramatically.


#11

I’m just amazed they are actually a thing! I encountered them first through a lovecraft parody and then an anti-Islamic scribble (genuine). They seem to be utterly unhinged.


#12

Very useful. Norovirus outbreak at GOP convention.


#13

Found an error in the article: “Noroviruses Trump triggers explosive bouts of vomiting and diarrhea.”


#14

It’s so true. :laughing:


#15

It’s John Wayne® toilet paper.

“It’s rough, it’s tough, and it don’t take shit from nobody!”


#16

From the linked article:

Norovirus spreads via what’s called the fecal-oral route.

That’s how you get GOP conventions.


#17

Oh yes quite real and quite unhinged. This one warns that a real, literal hell awaits sinners such as yourself, dear reader, but here is a special incantation that will get you on the nice list. It wasn’t as cute as the D&D ones.


#18

The first fundaligionist I met explained to me that hell is the grave and never coming back.

I’ve always been pretty resigned to hell. It’s what will happen.


#19

Yes that’s how the OT sees it – hell is She’ol, the land of shadows. Much less dramatic than Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God.


#20

OT?

Not much versed in active religiosity. More interested in ancient versions when I read abut that stuff.

Just discussing turning old d&d dice into jewelry with the elder (damned) daughter this evening as it happens. May she roast on a spit and curse the name of her heathen father.

I mean it was an obvious next step when she mentioned other kids using dice for jewelry in her summer thing. Oh yeah? I’ve got ctazy dice!
