Thursday’s Heroes and Zeros

Today’s HERO: Let’s call this a lifetime achievement award, for Mak Erot, the Indonesian woman who was anywhere from 101 to 130 when she recently passed away, according to reports. Though admirable, age wasn’t what made her semi-famous and our hero for the day.

Mak Erot was famed throughout Indonesia for her reported supernatural and obviously heroic skills in lengthening a man’s penis.

Known as one of the greatest woman – no, people – to have ever lived, this kind and wonderful woman used herbs and prayer to get the job done. Her treatments allegedly spawned many imitators in clinics all over the world, none of which anyone writing this blog would have any reason to know anything about. She was a pop culture legend in that part of the world, appearing in everything from advertisements to teen-comedy films, according to Rest in peace, dear sweet woman. Your work is done.

Today’s ZERO: Yes, as predicted earlier today, it’s the guy in Knoxville, Tenn., who is suing his church because he claims he was so consumed by the Holy Spirit, he fell and hit his head while worshiping.

I would still absolutely hate to be this guy’s lawyer.

Matt Lincoln wants Lakewind Church to pay $2.5 million for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering. Which, as stated in the last post, brings the question: If he was so consumed with the Holy Spirit, why was he feeling any pain? Okay, he had a couple surgeries after the spill, so I guess he was legitimately hurt. His problem is he says he’d been bowled over by the experience before and someone always caught him.

To repeat, I think this guy is suing the wrong entity. He needs to sue God, or at least the Holy Spirit. I’d like to see him find a lawyer for that one.
