More Stupidity

I just read yesterday's newspapers. According to them, the Amarnath shrine was melting, but devotees were still flocking to it. I checked out the pictures, and was all, "What??!!" The Amarnath shrine is a fucking stalactite! And people go to pray there? What is wrong with people? How can this stupidity continue all these years? Whatever happened to scientific temperament etc.? I am all for religious tolerance and you can go believe in a dog or a cat or a cloud, if that makes you happy. Still, there is something called common sense, right? In these days and times, how can one travel over hill and dale to go pray to a stalactite?

Pray tell me.

Aha! my dear! You forget, it's just not one big stalacite, it's oneginormous phallic stalacite and that makes all the difference. Size matters after all...atleast to us Hindu's!!!
Love your bite sized observations on life by the way.

Uhm, didn't you know ?
And you are wrong anyway, the ice formation at that pilgrimage spot is a Stalagmite and not a Stalactite in the first place.

Not that it matters in either case, since a pilgrimage is about the journey and not the destination. Not that you would care, steeped as you are in sordid materialism.

A teacher told us an easy way to remember these things -

(forgive the misspelling for illustration purposes...)

stalacTIGHTS fall down your legs
stalcMITES crawl up them

Who is this Ms. Patil ? I know I will probably earn the ire of every roaring vagina who reads this blog, but Im pretty sure bitch would've been asking for it.

Besides, theres just something so doable about those not too bright overly muscled VHP goons.
