The other day I got a catalog from a Christian book store chain promoting their new Easter products. One of the items you could buy was a “crown of thorns.” For a mere $49.95 you could own a crown for your desk? Your mantle? Where do you properly store/display a crown of thorns? Do you think the Roman soldiers that made it at the time said to each other, “You know, some day this is going to make a really sweet paper weight.” But what can I say, when it comes to Easter and Christmas but shut your mouth not Halloween, we love us some weird memorabilia.
