I think it’s a Asherah pole...darn Canaanites found a way to make a pole out of metal instead of wood.

For a minute, they had me.
That is, until I clicked the link and saw their other news articles.

Being from IL I like the Blago-Nike Deal 'news' article.

The agreement, rumored to be valued as high as an appeals court appointment, is valid as long as Blagojevich avoids prison, where Nike products are banned by Illinois law. The contract is also reported to contain escalator clauses that allows bonus payments for any public trials or impeachment.
That's pretty funny, because it could almost be true. ....

Liberalism and Baal worship....what’s the difference? i don’t know, but here are the similarities.
They worship:
-Themselves
-The things they made or stole
-Themselves
-Themselves
-Their wickedness
-Their shrewd, wickedness.
-Themselves and their money

Did I mention themselves?

The “City” must get their ideas from Seinfeld shows. How clever.

This should make the worshippers of BAAL happy....

Soon women may flock to the festivus pole to have their babies aborted.

WTF dude? This is a "Festivus" thread! Get a grip!

Baal Worship:
-human sacrifice=Abortion
-perverted sex=support of gays and homosexual practices.
-their own god=a notion or nation without GOD!
-Anything goes mentality= rid of Christianity!

Christ weeps over Seinfeld episodes? Me too! I had tears rolling down my face when George trampled the old lady to flee the oven fire at that little kid's birthday party. I'm laughing as I type this!

Woah. That episode killed!!!

Indeed. Tinsel is distracting.

Sometimes I think the best humor goes right over some people’s heads.

Sigh... Ain't that the case. This thread has quickly been rendered solemn and depressing.

C'mon, people. Even Ned Flanders has a sense of humor!

Is there any way to load the Festivus pole with Roman candles, bottle rockets, and toy rocket engines to send it into orbit in the style of Yale grad John Kerry's windsurfing vector above? It might prove a fitting end to the Winter Solstice/festivus prank.

People were offered up to the pole and killed. Sexual dancing, sex acts and general nakedness and drunkenness were also part of the Asherah poles worship.

Eskimo totems poles are a more modern version

Hard to do sexual dancing around a totem pole to many splinters.
