new articles and reviews have been added to The Brick
page, accompanying the release of Das
1. Buch L.,
the German language translation of Rev. Smith's hit
from the Book of Genesis. Magazines and
newspapers such as Süddeutsche
Nachrichten-Agentur GmbH, Annabelle,
witness a wide range of reactions, from a call to burn
Rev. Smith at the stake for his blasphemy in the Stuttgarter
to the highest of praise from the Katholische

introduces the HamBurger™
for a way to distinguish itself from competitors and
stay ahead of the game in the fast-food industry, McDonalds
yesterday announced the introduction of a new menu item:
a sandwich product it has dubbed the HamBurger™.
"No national quick-service restaurant has ever
served up something quite like this," said McDonalds
spokesperson Arthur Shapp. A $20 million ad campaign
will be rolling out in coming weeks to promote the exotic
new sandwich which contains no beef or chicken products,
but instead uses ham, a pork product. "It's a pretty

sounds like a headline right off today's front pages,

title of the latest update to Rev. Smith's Brick
Testament website where three new illustrated stories
have been put online today, further documenting the
ancient Israelites' God-mandated ruthless slaughter
of their neighboring peoples as recorded in the Bible's
book of Joshua. It's heartwarming stuff, so grab a blanket,
make yourself some hot chocolate, and then curl up next
to the computer screen for some quality spiritual edutainment.
Or just go watch some TV. Your call.

& Curtains magazine has named the "landing
strip" the 2004 Pubic Fashion of the Year for women
and girls. "It was a very tight race again this
year between the strip and the full shave," said
C&C magazine editor-in-chief Maxine Nevins.
"Although you might see the full shave celebrated
more in the media these days, we believe that regular
working-class women of this country are sticking with
the refined elegance of neatly trimmed one to one-and-a-half
inch vertical line of hair covering their pubis."
Pubic hairstyling, like most fashion trends, notes Nevins,
are pendulous in nature. She predicts that the "full
bush" look, popular in the 60s and 70s will be
back in style by 2012.
