    No, it's not real. It's also pretty old, so much so that it's quite the classic. Still a great read through, and I'm sure many people still haven't read it, so great find!

    I've posted this before but I think you guys will enjoy it and it is even somewhat on topic (loosely defined).

    Lark News is best described as the Christian Onion. Some stuff is funnier if you have spent much time in a church; but other stuff would be pretty funny to anyone who has spent any time in a club or organization or committee at work.

    "Bassist convinced he's the best musician in the worship band"

    That is very funny.

    I kind of wish it was the drummer that was the clueless one - there must be more drummers than bassists on The Onion staff.

    That was cool stuff. I appreciated the story about "Spongebob checking into Exodus international".:D

    Glad you liked it. The Spongebob piece was brilliant.

    IMO, the funniest stuff lives on that line.

    I agree that it could be true - except, of course, in my worship band where the bassist is a humble guy with much to be humble about.

    Now that was funny. :D
  17. I loved this quote!

    "Actually, Jack writes a lot of songs about chicks," Rolen continued. "'Your Love,' 'When You Return,' 'I Confess'... I don't know if they're all about the same girl or lots of different ones, but one thing's for sure: Jack loves the p*ssy."

    The Onion is great.
