Saturday Snap – A Religious Bird?

A Religious Bird, originally uploaded by headtale.

I don’t normally make a habit of taking photos of strangers without their permission (honest!) but I thought this one was pretty funn.

A woman sitting across from me on the bus the other day was reading her daily devotions while cross-referencing the Bible. Meanwhile, I was reading my first ever Kindle for iPhone purchase, “The Atheist’s Guide to Christmas” so the impression she was flipping me the bird was unavoidable.

And since the iPhone was in my hands and pointed right at her, I quickly snapped this shot.

(Side note:
Dearest distant relatives and long-lost friends: If you must forward me a message about putting “Christ” back into Christmas, please do the bare minimum of research. For example, It is *extremely* unlikely that Jesus was born on December 25. Early Christians probably chose that date to help with the conversion of pagans who celebrated various mid-winter festivals around the end of December (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christmas#Date_of_celebration). Thanks!)

    As am I. Which is why I do my best to eat my weight in shortbread every Christmas! 😉
