Running a bit behind...

...but Captain's Quarters posted an explanation on June 10 of why the "witness" who claimed he saw Zarqawi being beaten to death by American soldiers couldn't possibly have seen it.

And although "666" jokes should now be as stale as reading 1984 in 1985, I came across some goodies last week but couldn't seem to get any computer time to post them. Time for a little levity, if slightly out of date.

MrsDarwin at Darwin Catholic compiled these under 'Beastly Stuff:'
Julie D. has up a post on the number of the beast , and her comments box is getting silly. Here's the lowdown on the number of the Beast, 666 -- and all its brothers and uncles and ugly stepchildren.

And don't forget: Speculation that the "mark of the Beast" will take the form of bar codes or computer chips is incorrect. The mark of the Beast is actually conferred by Livestrong bracelets.

* And you thought your tax rate is high.

Julie D. also notes that the 6/6/06 of Revelation would have been according to the Julian calendar. So the Apocalypse actually did come, only about 10 days earlier. (And I missed it!)
