    Is this a reference to Bruce Jenner?
    3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures --1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (borrowed with gratitude from 37818's sig)

          I was surprised to learn he'd married into the the most dysfunctional family ever. That didn't help, I'm sure.

            Why is it that Uncle Bubba deciding he's really Napoleon and wanting his legs shortened is obviously delusional but when he decides he's really Aunt Bubbette and wants something else shortened, he's perfectly sane?

                  Can I temporarily become 55 just long enough to get the senior discount at Denny's?

                      I actually got my family's check covered at Denny's because I told them that their policy said "12 and under eat free" and that there were only 5 of us.
