Our question involves an upcoming display to take place December 21-23 at the Michigan State Capitol building. What is this display?
A statue of a Spartan battling a Wolverine?
Hostmaster: incorrect. I like that idea! A Buckeye could be standing nearby, ready to jump into the fray, like a tag team.
Here's a thought.
Since a buckeye is a tree, there
could be a second statue of
the victor lifting his leg
on the Buckeye.
Hostmaster: Now that would be art!
Back at it. What is this upcoming display in Lansing, Fluffy?
A nativity scene?
They can't do that! It
goes against separation of
church and state!
Hostmaster: no, the display won't be a Nativity scene.
Santa and his reindeer?
Hostmaster: no. Though surely someone would be offended somehow.
Santa is associated with Christmas.
Not everybody celebrates
Christmas so Santa might
make them feel bad.
Hostmaster: of course.
You know what makes me feel bad?
All the dead birds on the ground
That's a lie! It's propaganda.
It's true. I can show you pictures.
Let's do it later though.
Hostmaster is looking woozy.
Hostmaster: umm. Bryan, take over. I have to leave.
I didn't know parrots could vomit
I'm reading the news article Hostmaster
used as his source.
Here's the answer:
The Satanic Temple of Detroit
has made a display. You can see it at
the Michigan State Capital
Satanic Temple kinda
sounds like a religious group.
Wouldn't the separation of church
and state thing kick in here, Cyndi?
Well. It's only fair.
After centuries of Christians
forcing their beliefs
There's a picture of the Satanic Temple
display. There's a
pentagram, cross, snake, giftwrapped box
and printed words reading:
"The Greatest Gift is Knowledge."
Reindeer are friendlier than snakes.
Since Hostmaster is indisposed, I'll sign us off.
Be sure and join us again for pop culture frenzy.
There's a link to that display if anybody wants to see it:
