Gaming the Good Jesuit
this is so much fun it should be illegal -- but it's not
On November 28, 2005, I posted something to Mystic Bourgeoisie titled The Disturbing Matter of Nazi Entailment. Near the end of that piece, I wrote...The caption for the photo below (from The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum) reads: "Corpses of Auschwitz prisoners in block 11 of the main camp... as discovered by Soviet war crimes investigators."...followed by this photo taken upon the postwar opening of the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz.
Clearly, this is no laughing matter. But bear with me. Last night I was on the phone yakking with Dean Landsman about god-knows-what, and as we were talking I was ego-surfing Technorati. Dean was telling me some hysterically funny story about threatening to kill his math professor's dog with a baseball bat and the guy wetting his pants in fear. (There were extenuating circumstances. Like the guy saying he'd never passed a Jew in any of his courses and didn't plan to start now, even though Dean had aced the final. [And btw, the relevance of this detail to our present story is entirely synchronistic.])
Good Lord! So I tell Dean about this when his story is finished. I say, whoever these various Jesuits are, they didn't just use the same picture, they used MY picture. They're sucking it from rageboy.com where Mystic B is hosted![NOTE: OK, so it's not "my picture." But at least in my original post, the graphic linked back to where I got it at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Except that I just checked my link to make sure, and it seems that someone over at USHMM switched around some pages so that my link now points to The Sugihara family in front of the Japanese consulate in Kaunas. Bollocks! Just forget I even mentioned it.]
For those of you less familiar with the overall corpus of Pink Floyd's prodigious oeuvre, here's a better view...
Of course, that graphic now has the filename auschwitz-corpses-clip.jpg, which is admittedly misleading -- and my Mystic B post about Auschwitz is now very confusing. At some point, unless he's completely asleep at the wheel, our boy over at Good/Bad Jesuits will realize what's happened -- though he'll probably think he's been "hacked" (no, you were STEALING; look it up in your fucking Ten Commandments) -- and go find his own corpses to illustrate his "Pro Life" views. And naturally, that eventuality is why I took these screen snaps. Couldn't have something this rich going undocumented, now could we?
