A Scatological Masterpiece

Fine post about what crap it is to imagine our personal dignity is tied to controlling our bowel movements.

I do admit to be worried about that syndrome where you lose verbal impulse control and start randomly spewing obscene words... (Given that I used "crap", "scatological" and "bowel" in the previous paragraph perhaps I have reason to worry.) Would hate for the epitaph to read, "showed remarkable creativity in stringing epithets". Yet we are all kings by virtue of being human as Tom disputes.

For the King of the Universe to be mocked with a crown of thorns says everything I need to know about how important we are in the Lord's eyes and how utterly small our embarrassments are by comparison.
