Shred your Bible

Or, Roving Reporter Records Revised Reading Recommendations

This sign was featured just a few months ago with the sinister if puzzling Queensland P.O. Box. But now the “worst” may be more about the standard of graffitiing it has just received as recorded by Roving Reporter. Like the I hate cats post recently, I question whether “Shred your Bible” was really worth the climb up to the sign? I would have tried to insert an “h” to make it “shave sinners”. With a bit of white, it could have been worth trying “give heads Qld.” There’s a whole blank line there for witty comments or obscenities. No. I can’t get behind this.

    Even ‘Dread Your Bible’ would’ve worked better.

    When the opening line is ‘Christ came into the world…’, the priest/paedo gags just write themselves, don’t they?

    Would have, schmould have LA & bento. Were you up on a Hilton rooftop in the frosty night, with cans of white, red, black and blue, crossing out and inserting letters & lines and stroking your chins appraisingly as you contemplated your results? No I don’t think you were. YOu stayed in bed and posted on a blog what you would’ve done if you could’ve been arsed.

    I like the pithiness, it suggests impulsitivity rather than thoughtful planning and projection.

      You been been busy treating the criminally insane Lisa ?
      First step identify the culprit : in this case one J McDowell of Queensland Gospel Halls , Burleigh Heads branch located in Anzac Parade. This may or may not be J McDowell of John McDowell caravans. . Pope Guru LA the first will of course be able to pronounce on the correctness or otherwise of this brand of ole timey religion
      A trip down Anzac Parade reveals the revelation of the Gospel Hall.
      Christ , as most Protestants know , came into the world to save Winners not Losers.

      Poor Lisa, some people in this world are creative and productive – they are the people who produce paintings of dolphins and orcas on Bunbury walls, or graffiti Christian billboardery.

      And some people find their talents lie more in the analytical and critical realm – they are the people who point and laugh at the poorly rendered dolphins and orcas, or suggest ways in which the contra-Biblical graffiti could be improved.

      I am firmly in the latter camp. I see it as being quite Marxist in its production – from each according to their ability, to each according to their needs.

    i like the capital ‘s’ and ‘h’, it suggest semi-literacy.

    I did call the mobile number last time this appeared on TWOP. I spoke to a lovely (Scottish?) old man who explained that he and his wife independently fund this poster campaign. They post billboards across the country to spread the good news. They offered to send me a free bible, but I declined, already being an owner of one King James.

    Due to my provision of the original shot, and then having spoken to this genuine old bloke, I feel conflicted. Mmm, what would Jesus say?

    What I like about this TLA is that I can wrangle the insertion, doodle, crackpot and bible posts I’ve missed on my travels into one image, undoubtedly the worst I’ve seen since Alsation (sic) Rampant.

    p.s. I dug the Bad Theremin.

    I would’ve put a comma in between “Christ” and “Jesus”, and then an exclamation point. But something tells me that would be funny to me only.

    Interestingly, what I have always presumed to be the original version of this billboard (here on the Gold Coast Hwy at Burleigh itself) has been gone for quite a while. Are they still running over there?

    Perhaps the promulgator has gone to the great Burns Dinner in the sky.
