We had a caller on the March 22nd show who was hearing impaired and we attempted to interact with him via a TTY service. Unfortunately, we didn't get very far with the caller as the interaction was so painful, but he did get out a rather strange phrase having to do with abortion. Matt and I didn't get gist of the call, so we moved on.
Some of our sharper fans figured out what the caller was trying to say. He was quoting a rather amusing book title, "BIRTH CONTROL IS SINFUL IN THE CHRISTIAN MARRIAGES and also ROBBING GOD OF PRIESTHOOD CHILDREN!!". It's being sold on Amazon and it's worth checking out if you'd like a chuckle. Especially check out the description (mostly capital letters), reviews of the book, and its price. If it weren't so expensive, it might make a nice book for a devout family member.
So, thanks to our caller. The message finally got through.

Maybe we should all pitch in a few dollars to Axp so we can get some of the better bits out here. But, that would mean supporting this nonsense, so then again, maybe not.ReplyDelete
That book cover is hilarious. 135$ ? Are they futs?ReplyDelete
(Off topic:Have you guys noticed the recent Youtube suspensions? They got the JREF and the RRS channels down as well as others)
This fine piece of literature is available for free on google, for those who might be interested.ReplyDelete
"THIS BOOK IS GODS HOLYSPIRIT VOICE: THE CALL FOR ALL CHRISTIANS & CHURCHES TO REPENT FROM ALL THEIR SINS: EVEN FROM FALSE CHRIST TEACHINGS. BIRTH CONTROL SINS HAVE CURSE THE CHURCH WITH SPIRITUAL WHOREDOM & FALSE WORSHIP. RESULTING IN THE PERSECUTIONS: AGAINST THE HOLY PEOPLE. THIS BOOK MAY BE REVISED: BECAUSE OF COMPUTER DICTATORS: MANY WORDS IN THIS BOOK: MADE HAVE BEEN CHANGED: TO>>DISCREDIT: THE AUTHOR."
Wow -- I just looked at the clock and realized it is WAY past my bedtime. This must be why, when I checked the ad on Amazon, I did a double-take because it looked like it said "This purchase qualifies for super-Savior shipping."ReplyDelete
Oh, yeah, time for bed, and I really should lay off those drugs.
Is there a significance to the fact that, according to Amazon, the book that 42% of "customers ultimately buy after viewing this item" is Watchmen?ReplyDelete
Also, someone should do a study on why lunatics type in all caps. There HAS to be more than just a correlation.
If you really want, you can get a preview of the contents at Google Books:ReplyDelete
Warning: The text of this book is also all in caps and may cause irreversible brain damage!
I think the mere fact that this book exists and people would agree with it's nonsense is a very good argument for birth control. We need to take the stupid out of the gene pool (but obviously not the way the nazis would).ReplyDelete

I have requested the Kindle edition.
Oh, and those TTY services are really interesting -- they basically have to say anything you type to them. My little brother and his friends used to use them to call and say vulgar things to each other.ReplyDelete
I often felt bad for the readers, but they were real professionals for the most part. Said the nastiest things in a flat monotone followed by "go ahead." A few of them got the joke, and appreciated the levity to their day. One of them, who must have been an aspiring actor, even started saying it with feeling when they pretended a hearing-impaired pimp was looking for his goddamn money, bitch.
So while I don't wish to cast aspersions, and it doesn't really matter either way, it may be that the caller could hear just fine and thought it was funnier to try to get the TTY lady to pronounce the EVER SO EMPHATIC TITLE.
TALKING IN CAPS IS AWESOME! ANYONE WHO SAYS OTHERWISE IS A PINK COMMIE GODLESS HEATHEN MUSLIM.ReplyDelete

If my friend's little comedy troop he'st ryign to put together ever gets off the ground, I am so writing some skits for the Hearing-Pimpparied. Just imagine the bling hearing aid!
It's actually got two exclamation marks in the title. That is three kinds of hilarious.ReplyDelete
