No Slack for SubGenius Mom

It's 2006, already, and yet we read this: "Mother pokes fun at religion; loses son."

Outraged by a Church of the SubGenuis parody of a Mel Gibson movie with a relgious theme -- "The Passion of the Christ" -- a Rochester judge with a black hole where his sense of humor ought to be took a mother's child away from her. The woman, Rachel Bevilacqua, was subsequently ordered by the judge, James Punch, to stop blogging about the case. For an off-the-wall story that will leave you wondering -- what the hell?! -- go to Beginnings.

J. R. “Bob” Dobbs, depicted right, is the cartoon pipe-smoking SubGenius logo/mascot. Although he was said to have been killed in 1984, the Church claims he has returned from the dead on numerous occasions.
