    And maybe troll dolls.

    My ex-wife used to belong to an evangelical church.  There was one woman in the church that told her that troll dolls were satanic.  She had a "true story" that somebody once brought in a troll doll for the minister to display as an example.  The doll jumped out of her arms and ran down the aisle to get out of the church.  She said she saw it happen herself with her own two Jesus lovin' eyes.

    So I think troll dolls might qualify as well.

      That's a true story?

      •  Yes. It's a true story. If it made you laugh, (0+ / 0-)

        you're not alone.  Somebody actually told us that with bated breath.  She saw a troll doll jump to the ground and run on its little stubby plastic legs out of the church.

        I say God bless you, little troll!

        This was at an Assembly of God church in San Pedro, California that had as its pastor the cousin of George Bush Sr.'s Immigration head, George Ezell.  They also got my ex-wife involved in Terry Randall's Operation Rescue protests in Los Angeles.  I wasn't with her during those years, but she was still working off a community service sentence for being arrested at one of those.  They turned their back on her once she hooked up with me because I was a Godless Atheist (by their standards) Jew.  They used to call up and leave messages on the machine saying "We're praying for you," in a snide voice.

          day. Maybe it was simply a child. Maybe someone had a pet chimp or something? I doubt that the whole thing was a hallucination or dream. What do you think?

            Maybe they make up shit like this in their head and then postdate it so they can make it true, like kiting a check.

            an alcoholic and/or drug burnout that me and my friends had over when we were playing dominoes.  He used to make up ridiculous lies and then become affronted when you didn't believe him.  

            One time we were talking about martial arts movies, and he told us he knew how they made those movies.  What they did (and he said this without any humor in his expression or voice) was go down to the docks in China where all the hungry people were.  Then they'd put a big bowl of rice on the ground and tell them whomever won could have it, then film the ensuing melee as they all started jump-kicking and karate chopping each other to get that bowl of rice.

            Of course, we all laughed our asses off, but he looked at us as if his feelings were hurt, and he swore it was true!
