Last night the whole family was spread out on the couches watching our favorite Sunday night series, The Bible on the History channel. It got to the part where Jesus is in the desert, having fasted for 40 days and Satan arrives, in the form of a snake.
And then he's in the form of a sort-of human in a black cape...and when we saw his face both Ben and I gasped and looked at each other, and as our eyes met we knew we were having the very same thought.
"Don't say it!" I whispered at him. I didn't want the boys to hear us and repeat it.
But sure enough, one of the boys said "Satan looks like Barack Obama!"
And they were right. Here's a link to the picture.
Now, I'm not a huge fan of the president, but I respect the office he holds...I also don't go around equating him with Satan...but I'm not gonna lie, I chuckled.
Today I found an article from the producers of the show, they claim he bears no resemblance. Pffff. Again, I chuckled.
These are the things that entertain me during the Winter That Never Ends where I live.
