Homer Vs The Giant

By Cernig

Personally, I think this is hill-arious. (H/t Kat)
Pagans have pledged to perform "rain magic" to wash away cartoon character Homer Simpson after he was painted next to their famous fertility symbol - the Cerne Abbas giant.

The 17th century chalk outline of the naked, sexually aroused, club-wielding giant is believed by many to be a symbol of ancient spirituality.

A giant 180ft Homer Simpson brandishing a doughnut was painted next to the well-endowed figure in a publicity stunt to promote The Simpsons Movie released later this month. It has been painted with water-based biodegradable paint which will wash away as soon as it rains.

Ann Bryn-Evans, joint Wessex district manager for The Pagan Federation, said: "It's very disrespectful and not at all aesthetically pleasing.

"We were hoping for some dry weather but I think I have changed my mind. We'll be doing some rain magic to bring the rain and wash it away."

She added: "I'm amazed they got permission to do something so ridiculous. It's an area of scientific interest."
So the PF inflicts itself with holier-than-thou sanctimonious crap yet again. There's so few in the PF who actually possess a sense of humour. Ann needs to dig the pointy pentacles out of her butt and recall that the Charge has a bit about "mirth and reverence". Amazingly, there are far fewer pagans in the Wessex PF than there are in Wessex. I wonder why that is?

(Oh, and while Homer has a big donut, Cerne has a bigger tonker. Who do you think wins a face-off there?)
