I love God in the morning from a cup

bethje and I watched Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade last night. I didn't love it, but I thought parts of it were pretty clever, particularly the traps that Indy had to pass to reach the Holy Grail (despite the fact that the "Jehovah" mistake doesn't really make sense). The Grail itself is part of a school of belief that amuses me, which is basically that anything Jesus so much as touched has been miraculously preserved, and probably has magic powers as well. There have been several people who claimed to have found Jesus' foreskin, the most famous example of the Holy Prepuce having been stolen in 1983. Does anyone else think THAT'S what Indy should have been looking for in the most recent film? {g}

By the way, there's a soft-core porn film that they show pretty often on Cinemax called Alabama Jones and the Busty Crusade. Is that really the best title they could come up with? It doesn't even have the right number of syllables! Why not just Breast Crusade? Or how about Indiana Bones and the Lust Crusade? Come on, porn-namers, you can do better!
