    Hi Cesar... I haven't seen dr. bad in several weeks. His posting on other sites have been missing too. I wonder if he was arrested. He was very vulgar and rude, and I'm glad he's gone from here. He made it difficult to carry on normal conversations, and you know how much I like to blab! he-he

    Newsflash: While the famous TV preacher Billy Bob Jones sits in jail, his wife Penelope "xanax" Jones, a well know co-dependent enabler in her own right, and recovering meth-addict Ted Haggerty are filling in for jailed preacher. The duo are pleading with church members to help raise bail money for the reverend Jones.

    Today's services at the Crusty Cathedral included the church organ player hammering out a soulful rendition of Tammy Wynett's 'Stand by your Man' as Penelope Jones sang along. The special services are an attempt to help God raise bail money for the jailed preacher, who plead no-contest earlier this morning. "I am not guilty" said the preacher as he sat in jail waiting to be released. "I am a close follower of our church idiotology that onece saved, always saved and therefore i was forgiven even before I got drunk and crashed the church limosine." Bail in the amount of 250 dollars has been posted.

    Newsflash: The famous TV preacher Billy Bob Jones has been released after the church posted 250 dollars bail. Our own reporter caught up with Jones, and asked him what happened to the 3 million dollars raised by the church for his defense. "My loverly wife Pernelope anth my goodth friendth Ted Haggardthy went to ththe Broadmoor Hotel and rethieved the light and gaveth the money to God perthonally" said Mr. Jones, ending suspisions that the money had been stolen to pay for the Hotel room and the luxury cruise Ted and Penelope took earlier this week "for inspiration."
