posted by Jason Boyett

Everybody has their own tastes in Christmas ornaments. We have two trees at our house. One is a smaller tree and is filled with ornaments our kids have created over the years. They get to decorate this one all on […]

The Christian Romance Novel Naughty List

posted by Jason Boyett

Steeple Hill is a line of Christian women’s novels published by Harlequin, the great-granddaddy (or grandmother?) of the romance novel industry. When you think of romance novels, you probably think of a buff, hairless, massively pectoral man clutching a lovestruck […]

American Jesus Art!

This blog has been fascinated, appalled, and otherwise dumbfounded in the past by Jesus art, which is rarely inspirational and often inappropriate. Today we have a whole new painting to discuss. Behold: Jesus, the Founding Father of America and He […]

Relevant Podcast Meets the Pocket Guides

posted by Jason Boyett

If you’re a regular subscriber to the popular Relevant Podcast produced by my friends at Relevant Magazine, you know that it’s a rambling (and very funny) mishmash of pop culture news, religious musings, warnings about the coming Chimpocalypse, and other […]

Stupid Fun with Song Lyrics

posted by Jason Boyett

Sometimes, because I’m a nerd, I amuse myself by listening to song lyrics and replacing the actual words with other words. What I’ve discovered is that 1) this often makes songs more interesting, and 2) other people do this, too. […]

posted by Jason Boyett

Did you know that there’s a bit of a kerfuffle brewing among psychologists because images of the famed Rorschach inkblot tests have now been posted on Wikipedia, along with the most common responses for each image? Mental-health professionals, as you […]

I am a Humor Tease

posted by Jason Boyett

A few weeks ago, friend-of-the-Pocket-Guides Bryan Allain asked me to participate in a humor survey he was doing on his blog. Apparently because he needed to fill space between photos of Amish people and stories about eating tacos with Derek […]

Of Mice and Men and Mummies

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m pretty sure every writer has this experience. At least, I hope so. You see a book on a shelf, or read about it in a magazine, and think: Wow. THAT is a great book idea. I totally could have […]

Push Button, Receive Bacon

I am a designer and occasional artist, but only rarely have I ever resorted to real graffiti. I can’t remember any specific instances, but I’m fairly sure I have left my mark on the occasional bathroom wall. Probably to make […]

Ads That Will Give You the Willies

posted by Jason Boyett

Say what you will about the current age of advertising, what with all the celebrity sell-outs and general ickiness and our inability to get particular jingles out of our heads. But at least our ads aren’t filled with utterly disturbing […]

Lookin’ Good for Jesus

posted by Jason Boyett

Some days I enter into my local Christian bookstore/knick-knackery, and–looking over the vast shelves of Purpose-Driven products, Beth Moore Bible studies, Veggie Tales merchandise, Precious Moments figurines, dumb Christian parody t-shirts, inspirational artwork and home decor, and books about the […]

Magic + Drama + Irony + Europe

posted by Jason Boyett

My brother Brooks is a full-time inner-city minister, but he also has a side gig: magic. As in illusions and prestidigitation and card tricks and all that fun stuff. The kids he works with really get into it, but he’s […]

Worst Christian-Single Model Ever

posted by Jason Boyett

It’s probably no surprise to you that I show ads on my blog. This is because I am a greedy, greedy money-changer who couldn’t live without the $4.35 I make each month from Google AdSense. It’s also because I’m part […]

Jesus Christ is Coming, by Jim Blackmon

posted by Jason Boyett

It’s time, dear readers, for another Christian video along the lines of “The Breakfast Song” or “Jesus Is My Friend.” This one is called “Jesus Christ Is Coming.” It’s by a guy named Jim Blackmon. I have no idea who […]

Diff’rent Strokes Just Got Disturbing

posted by Jason Boyett

If you’re like me, you probably never think about how important music is to setting the tone of the images you’re seeing on TV or in a movie. But the background music makes all the difference. Want proof? Check out […]

Mashup: Family Circus + Jonathan Edwards

posted by Jason Boyett

While taking a shower on Saturday, I had this thought: What if you combined the gentle humor of Family Circus with the hellfire Puritan preaching of the great 18th century American theologian Jonathan Edwards? The answer, of course, is that […]

Longing for a Prosthetic Finger Drive

posted by Jason Boyett

The Telegraph reported a fascinating story yesterday about a computer programmer in London who lost a finger in a motorcycle accident. No big news there. I know all kinds of computer programmers who’ve lost fingers in motorcycle accidents. Don’t we […]

Heaven: A Breakfast-Free Zone

I received some very bad news yesterday, courtesy of a YouTube clip blogged about by Bryan Allain. It’s a song that aired on “The Mornin’ Show,” a local program on WTVA, an NBC affiliate in Tupelo, Mississippi. Tupelo, as you […]

Did You Know? (Vol. 2)

Remember when I did a brain-dump of interesting facts and I went on and on about it being educational and entertaining and a fun series that I would do occasionally? Of course you don’t remember. I couldn’t even remember. I […]

The True Story of Travis the Enraged Chimp

posted by Jason Boyett

Did you hear the story earlier this week about the pet chimp who went crazy and attacked, in violent fashion, a friend of its owner? It was kind of a sad story — the chimpanzee died, and the lady it […]

Jack Bauer Will Rip Your Pants Out

posted by Jason Boyett

A person could take this pants thing too far. Really, really far, and then it would get annoying. So this is the last time, I promise. What if you took a single word in, for instance, one of those really […]

Jonathan Edwards and the Fiery Pants of Death

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m on a Jonathan Edwards kick, and I won’t apologize. Last week, we compared some of his sermon phrases to death metal lyrics. This week, we’re replacing certain words from “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” (1741) with […]

I Find Your Lack of Pants Disturbing

posted by Jason Boyett

Last week, Kottke.org pointed to a brilliant list of lines from Star Wars that could be made vastly more interesting by replacing a single word with “pants.” That list gave me great joy, so I’ll share a few of my […]

Lord, Save Us From Your Followers

posted by Jason Boyett

As I’ve said before, one benefit of being a writer is you get to interview some interesting people from time to time. A couple months ago I interviewed Dan Merchant, the writer/director/producer/star of Lord, Save Us from Your Followers, a […]

Collide: The Prodigal Fun

posted by Jason Boyett

Back in September, I mentioned spending a week doing interviews with various funny people for a Collide Magazine article. Wait a second. “Funny people” is a weird way to describe a person. It makes me think of clowns and floppy […]

The Fake Jason: Highly Addictive

Well, it’s official: I like twittering as Fake Jason Boyett far more than as the real Jason. After only 24 hours of existence, the fake me has more than half as many followers as the real me and will likely […]

Dogs + Airbrushing = Awesome

posted by Jason Boyett

There are some photos that are so jaw-droppingly weird, they don’t really require commentary. But I’m a writer and I can’t help it. Must…be…snarky. Molly and her poodle, Skipper, thought it was just a harmless, pretty peacock they saw in […]

I’m Back! Also: Kamchatka!

Hey, everyone. Thanks for minding the fort while I was gone. My wife, Aimee, and I enjoyed a week-long, no-kids Caribbean cruise with a few of our best friends. Had a great time. It looked a lot like this: And […]

Hummus Wars

Just when you thought international relations couldn’t get any trickier…it turns out not even the humble chick pea is safe from escalating tensions. Lebanon announced a couple of weeks ago that it’s filing an international lawsuit against the nation of […]

God Cleared on a Technicality

You can breathe a sigh of relief now, because God won’t be going to jail. A Nebraska state senator named Ernie Chambers filed a lawsuit last year against God, accusing him of inspiring fear, making terroristic threats against the senator […]

I Know Joe the Plumber. For Real.

Matthew Paul Turner on Humor (Part 2)

The Grapes of Wrath

People go to hell for continually calling attention to this sort of thing — and for laughing at it, as I have — but my friend Cara reminded me of it at her blog. So it’s her fault. And this […]

My Week of Interviews

One of the coolest things about writing for magazines is that you inevitably get to talk to interesting people. Of course, it’s mostly over the phone, but still… Once I spoke to this guy for a do-it-yourself home improvement article […]

Wonder Loaf

One of my favorite TV shows growing up was The Wonder Years. For a variety of reasons, one of which may or may not have involved having a crush on Winnie Cooper. One of the things I always loved about […]

Best. Infographic. Ever.

posted by Jason Boyett

Saggy pants. Personally, that’s a fashion trend I’ve never understood. I’ve tolerated it, sure, because what can a person do when some hip teen can hardly walk around because his zipper keeps getting caught in his shoestrings? I’ve laughed at […]

The Wittenburg Door

posted by Jason Boyett

I grew up Southern Baptist — and I still attend a Southern Baptist church — but my faith journey has taken me through a lot more wide open ecumenical spaces than the narrow Southern Baptist road. I guess I’d describe […]

George Carlin on Honor Students

posted by Jason Boyett

In honor of the late George Carlin (1937-2008): Here’s a bumper sticker I’d like to see: “We are the proud parents of a child whose self-esteem is sufficient that he doesn’t need us promoting his minor scholastic achievements on the […]

Dorkiness, Part 2

Garfield Minus Garfield

I Am SO White

My Introvert Interview
On Monday, author Adam McHugh delivered a guest post about the "snarling 8-headed monster" of the writing process.

Harold Camping: "Invisible Judgment Day"
When the rapture didn't occur as predicted on May 21, 2011, Harold Camping had a few options. Here is how he could have responded to the failed prediction, in descending levels of crazy: 1. He could announce that he was wrong. This is the most reasonable option and was therefore unexpected. I wou

The Phases of Writing (Adam McHugh)
