Just me.

Christian clowns= scary if you dislike clowns anyway, also scarier than "normal" evangelists.

Christian hard rock= generally sucks, but at least we can still laugh at Stryper's costumes decades later.

Christian rap= usually sucks and is square to boot (does anyone think "The Kids" will listen to an artist called "Tha Rappin' Reverend"?)

Christian mime= what? no, seriously, what?


requires Flash/ sound. worksafe, unless you work for Mumenschanz. May give you nightmares.

In my alternate universe, these guys are actually the boys from Kris Kross (you remember Daddy Mack and Mack Daddy, don't you? Course you do!) after a religious conversion, but no new inspiration to name themselves something that doesn't have two letter Ks in it.

Agreed on all accounts, and that might be a first. :P

Also, the due to some trick of font, I first misread "clowns" as "downs", and I was all, you mean like Corky?

Also also, I must admit I do have a soft spot in my heart for Christian bikers. I have no idea why.

That is a valid exception.

Featured on the DVD "Left-Handed Humor", as in "left-hand path"? Because this is definitely a case of Satan using Scripture for his own ends.

My immediate disdain for Gospel Mimery was mitigated by the following text from their website.
K&K has had the distinct privilege to perform before the legendary historic hero Mrs. Rosa Parks, Television sitcom’s Martin’s Tommy Ford, Boys To Men, BeBe Winans, and the classic “Sanford and Sons” Demond Wilson. They appeared as guest with MC Hammer on the Hammer Time Show aired on TBN(Trinity Broadcast Network).
That sort of heavyweight endorsement should give anybody cause to reevaluate their fundamental aesthetic principles.

It suddenly strikes me that aesthetic is one letter away from being an anagram of atheistic... as in, my aesthetic principles inform my atheistic recoil at the notion of a pair of mime ministers.
