Phillip's Phunnies

A merry heart does good, like medicine... Proverbs 17:22

Well now - how about a 3rd favorite comic - one that sadly is no longer in print in the papers. Yes, it's





Calvin, according to his creator Bill Watterson, "is named for a sixteenth-century theologian who believed in predestination." So there is some theological value to this comic! :)

So here are a few phunnies for the day from Calvin and Hobbes:









Of course, these comics with Calvin and his tv show reminded me of the lyrics to Brad Paisley's song titled "Celebrity", a parody of the culture of celebrity (idolatry) that we have created here in the USA. It is funny and sad at the same time because there is so much truth in what he has written in this song!

Celebrity
by Brad Paisley

Someday I'm gonna be famous, do I have talent, well no
These days you don't really need it thanks to reality shows
Can't wait to date a supermodel, can't wait to sue my dad
Can't wait to wreck a Ferrari on my way to rehab

'Cause when you're a celebrity
It's adios reality
You can act just like a fool
People think you're cool
Just 'cause you're on TV
I can throw a major fit
When my latte isn't just how I like it
When they say I've gone insane
I'll blame it on the fame
And the pressures that go with
Being a celebrity

I'll get to cry to Barbara Walters when things don't go my way
And I'll get community service no matter which law I break
I'll make the supermarket tabloids, they'll write some awful stuff
But the more they run my name down the more my price goes up

'Cause when you're a celebrity
It's adios reality
No matter what you do
People think you're cool
Just 'cause you're on TV
I can fall in and out of love
Have marriages that barely last a month
When they go down the drain
I'll blame it on the fame
And say it's just so tough
Being a celebrity

So let's hitch up the wagons and head out west
To the land of the fun and the sun
We'll be real world bachelor millionaires
Hey hey, Hollywood, here we come

'Cause when you're a celebrity
It's adios reality
No matter what you do
People think you're cool
Just 'cause you're on TV
Being a celebrity
Yeah celebrity
