There is a developing story about Catholic lawyer who has filed heresy charges against Sen. John Kerry with the Archdiocese of Boston.
Details at Catholic?
Not one to resist a tie in to my own humor. Here is a joke I wrote on my previous blog.
A man and his servant were out in the woods sitting around a campfire when the servant noticed "Sir, you have a tick on you arm!". "Get that blasted bloated hairy thing off my arm, pluck it out!" said the master. The servant cautioned "If I pluck it out it will leave its head in arm your and it might become diseased , better to bring fire to it so that it will remove itself". "Do as you say and hurry!", the servant brought a lighted stick onto the bug. "You clumsy idiot, you have burned my arm!". Thus he became the first person in history to be burned for a hairy tick.
Update: Here is a link to the heresy charges.
