Goldmine!

GOLD MINE!
I remember being handed a frightfully offensive, yet highly entertaining little illustrated pamphlet one day as a high school student (at a movie theatre? some music event, maybe?). You know those pamphlets I'm talking about... the ones those self-righteous, self-proclaimed "soul-savers" hand out at various public events, designed to convert the masses to their particular "brand" of christianity. Well I remember getting one of those and spending the next day during classes marking up said pamphlet with all sorts of awful vulgarities that would amuse the average high-schooler, passing it around to friends, having them add illustrations, or remarks, as well. Oh, it was a blast.

Now, as an "adult", when offerred "those" pamphlets, I politely say "No Thank You" and move along quickly, trying not to make eye contact. But I remember the entertainment of those pamphlets, and now, in the safety of my own heathen home, I can peruse them at my leisure. A personal favorite is "Dark Dungeons", whose summary reads: "Debbie thought playing Dungeons and Dragons was fun...until it destroyed her friend!"
