Muscling Christ Back Into Christmas

First let me say that I don't understand women body builders. What is it about women who want to look like skinny freakish men with breasts?? I don't get it.

The woman in that picture is not only a skinny freakish man with breasts, she's also an entrepreneur. Her name is Marsha Boggs; she's the founder of Boss Creations and the creator of the CHRIST-mas tree. I don't know which is worse, the picture of her or the picture of her "Christian Nation" CHRIST-mas Tree:

In addition to reviving the spirit of Christmas with her tacky, plastic twist on the American flag, she goes even further with her shameless commercialism by claiming one of the ways to bring Christ back into the focus of our celebrations is to "decorate with more Christian-themed holiday decorations, including The CHRIST-mas Tree."

Yeah, because when I think of Christ, the first thing that comes to mind is a fucking hideous red, white and blue tree with an illuminated cross in the center of it. Oh, and a
crown of thorns ("made from an actual plant in the Holy Land) to adorn the top of it. Are you fucking kidding me?? Boy, I can't wait for her to come out with the CHRIST-mas jewelry line so I can wear that abomination around my neck.

According to her website, among some other fact-deficient drivel, she's worried about how "America is moving away from Christianity and toward communism." This coming from a woman who is having her "Christian Nation" tree manufactured in, guess where? That's right, folks...Communist China.

Apparently, injecting Christ back into Christmas is good for publicity too; in addition to being written about in her local Annapolis, MD newspaper
The Capital, she's been mentioned on CNN, FOX, The Colbert Report and in several other media stories.

If you're not a patriotic Christian and you're just a regular Christian, you can get this more traditional tree-wreck to put in your home. Oh, and did I mention the trees are only $400.00? Sweet deal, huh?

Just think about how nice it'll look with the crown of thorns and some other Jesus-y ornaments. May I suggest flashing colored lights to distract from the fact that it looks like a tree that impaled itself onto a wooden cross.

Unless of course, that's the look you were going for.

Oh my. I cannot even think of a comment. I am just speechless. It started with the photo of the circus freak and then the tree. Just speechless.
