And Then There's What Awaits You at Wal-Mart!

Yes, folks, this entire truck has been painted as an advertisement for "Psychic Readings by Nancy." Nancy apparently has forty years of experience, a phone number, a web site, and is available for your next party.

And yes, folks, hidden away up in the back windshield, that's a proud sticker from my alma mater, Baylor University.

Your Cooperative Program dollars at work. :-)

Bart,

You obviously have never seen the TV show "Cops." You are supposed to blur out the tag number (never figured out why, but they always do!).

Also, you should have blurred out part of her phone number! Now all of your Baylor Bear friends will have direct access to her.

Then again, since she is pyscho, I mean psychic, shouldn't she have been calling them? Or, is that how they line up their "alumni sales calls"?

She is probably one of those proponents of intelligent design who was run out of Baylor.

I had a former SS teacher who, when he was a teen, used to call up the local psychic and say, "Guess who?"

On a serious note, this is why I am thankful that God did not grant me the ability to go to Baylor even though I so wanted to - instead, he sent me to Union University, where my degree looks better and better every day (even though I couldn't afford to go there now).

I am glad Baylor is producing a variety of people to help me as I look for my way....

Just joking....at least you turned out ok!

Dave Miller said...

Bart?

Turned out okay?

Hey D.R. I'm also an "at one time" Baylor want-a-be who found his way to UU. Not only could I not afford it now but I'm pretty sure that they don't let my GPA in anymore. Baylor on the other hand...

Since I am a fellow Baylor grad (class of '91), and a pastor myself, we both know that Baylor has many non-Christians who attend there for degrees such as the pre-med biology and pre-law. Also, since Baylor is a Big 12 school (for whatever that's worth), they are known among many non-Christians from that affiliation. I also teach 6th graders in a public school, and it amazes me that some of them only think that Baylor is a football team (again, somewhat ironic). Sadly, it doesn't surprise me that a vehicle could have that combination of stickers.

Chris,

Are you sure that Baylor has a football team? :)

Steve,

I think everyone knows those things. Still, you've got to admit that the picture is a bit ironic and humorous.

Brother Chris said...

It has been rumored that Baylor still has a football team, but I haven't seen evidence of it for well over a decade.

Maybe the sticker in the windshield stands for "Beelzebub University" instead of Baylor.

maybe this is a used car and she couldn't bear to part with the Baylor sticker because she needed it to add credibility to her chosen profession? selahV

M. Steve Heartsill said...

Bart, maybe for your next post you could use this as your headline: "Baylor's Football Championship Hopes." Then again, I'll save you time. Here's the entire article now:

Baylor's Football Championship Hopes--NONE!

Hey, I graduated from Samford University in Birmingham. We share the same Baptist curse--great school, no athletics!

To that I'm thinking there's only one thing left to say ...

Whoop!
