Jesus Brought To Court on Charges of. . . Malpractice of Existence???

An age-old debate between Christian believers and others may be settled before a judge in the Italian court system. A Washington Times story reports that Luigi Cascioli, author of "The Fable of Christ," claims he has "proved" that Jesus never existed.

He is now suing a local priest, Enrico Righi, for continuing to preach the Gospel that claims he did. Both plaintiff and defendant are in their 70s, hailing from the same Italian town of Bagnoregio; they even attended the same seminary school as teenagers. While Righi became a priest and parish newspaper writer, Cascioli became an atheist, and wrote his book with the intention of debunking two millennia of Catholic teachings. "I started this lawsuit," he reportedly says, "because I wanted to deal the final blow against the church, the bearer of obscurantism and regression."

He is charging Father Righi, and by extension the Roman church, with breaking a pair of Italian laws: "Abuso di Credulita Popolare" ("Abuse of Popular Belief"), meant to protect citizens against being swindled or conned; and "Sostituzione di Persona" (impersonation). A January 27 preliminary hearing will decide whether or not the case goes forward.

Only 999 Pennies To Go

A Canadian credit card holder is putting a new twist on an old trick practiced by disgruntled debtors -- repaying his bill in pennies to maximize the collector's inconvenience.

Unhappy when his Canadian bank began outsourcing some of its credit card processing to the United States, the man lodged his protest via the bank's online payment system, jamming its computers by making dozens of tiny payments a day.

Don Rogers said he was worried that anti-terrorism laws in the United States could allow the U.S. government to access his data without his consent.

"I don't want the CIA or George Bush to know how many cases of Viagra I bought last week, or what church or charities I donate to," he told Reuters.

Rogers said his card has since been canceled by Vancouver-based Citizens Bank, but he will continue paying his remaining balance of C$1,000 ($860) one little bit at a time.

"More and more our personal information is being rendered into digital formats and zips around the world," he said, adding that any credit card data sent to the United States is subject to U.S. law.

Roger's initial attempt at paying in pennies produced a statement over 32 feet long, according to media reports.

Think Twice Before Laying Out Those Mousetraps

A mouse got its revenge against a homeowner who tried to dispose of it in a pile of burning leaves. The blazing creature ran back to the man's house and set it on fire.

Luciano Mares, 81 of Fort Sumner, New Mexico said he caught the mouse inside his house and wanted to get rid of it.

"I had some leaves burning outside, so I threw it in the fire, and the mouse was on fire and ran back at the house," Mares said from a motel room Saturday.

Village Fire Chief Juan Chavez said the burning mouse ran to just beneath a window, and the flames spread up from there and throughout the house.

No was hurt inside, but the home and everything in it was destroyed.

The Feminine Side of Christmas

According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December.

Female reindeer retain their antlers till after they give birth in the spring.


Therefore, according to EVERY historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, EVERY single one of them; Dasher, and Dancer, and Prancer, and Vixen, Comet, and Cupid, and Donner, and Blitzen, and even the most famous reindeer of all Rudolph, had to be a girl.


We should've known... only WOMEN would be able to drag a fat man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost.
