The Divine Lamp

The unfolding of thy words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple…Make thy face shine upon thy servant, and teach me thy statutes

Contest! Beat Dim Bulb, Win a Prize!

Posted by Dim Bulb on August 13, 2007

Okay, so there is no prize, but quit screaming “fraud!” for a moment and play anyway, you might have fun.

Dissident theologian Richard McBrien, (“who never met a Church teaching he agreed with”*) has established on the web a collection of his essays from the past thirty years. This got me to thinking: if he were to collect all his works together and publish them in Latin, what would an appropriate title for the collection be? My entry to this contest is: THE SUMMA SCATOLOGICA. If you know Latin, or can reasonably fake it, please feel free to enter.

Contest Rules:

1. All entries must be in Latin, Pig-Latin, or a reasonable facsimile of either.

2. All entries must be funny, stupid, or both.

3. Dim Bulb Inc. Shall not be held accountable for any litigation due to contestant’s liables or character assassinations of McB.

4. Members of Dim Bulb’s Family, along with his friends are allowed to participate. Generally, this is against standard contest rules, but, since the former do not read his blog, and since the latter are non-existent, concessions have been made.

5. The decision of the judge (Dim Bulb) is final. No appeals however whiny or justified will be considered.

My muppet personality

Posted by Dim Bulb on August 13, 2007

In one test I was told that I was a very erudite person with a multifarious vocabulary (guess which two words I had to look up). In a second test I was ranked as an 88% tortured genius. Now, apparently, I have the personality of muppet Dr Bunsen Honeydew. Anybody see a psychological profile developing? (See UPDATE below)

You Are Dr. Bunsen Honeydew

You take the title “mad scientist” to the extreme -with very scary things coming out of your lab.
And you’ve invented some pretty cool things, from a banana sharpener to a robot politician.
But while you’re busy turning gold into cottage cheese, you need to watch out for poor little Beaker!
“Oh, that’s very naughty, Beaker! Now you eat these paper clips this minute.”

The Muppet Personality Test


After contacting my “friends” in the FBI-it’s amazing how many of those you make when you insult wealthy Massachusetts’s Democrats-for help in determining my psychological profile, I received this in reply. Along with an artist’s rendering of my future claim to fame
