Tip of the hat to Texas in Africa for this one. It seems that companies, businesses and others are not always as careful as they need to be in creating the URLs for their websites.

Or, for a real treat, you can click this link and see it at Cynthia’s blog and, while your there, check out the deep thoughts regularly posted by Ms. Nielsen! (Who says Augustinian philosophers from conservative, Reformed backgrounds can’t be both brilliant and funny! Not me!)
Nothing theological, political, or socially relevant, here. This is just funny.
