Love the mix of news and faux-news at larknews.com.




My favorite this month so far:

OCALA, Fla. — After 28 years of handing out the same prayer card, Jeanette and Richard Nusbaum, missionaries to Ghana, have finally updated their photo. "We overprinted," says Richard, recalling the day in 1979 when he mistakenly placed an order for 100,000 cards instead of 1,000. "Rather than waste the Lord’s money printing new ones, we decided to use them until they ran out." The cards officially ran out last Wednesday at a mid-week service in Kansas. The Nusbaums now hope their new photo, which shows them nearly three decades older, doesn’t shock and alienate long-time supporters. "Some people don’t even know that in the meantime, we had three children and seven grandchildren," he says.•

    well I just realized that David allows random people to leave comments.

    unlike SOMEONE I know.

    and yes, Larknews is quite fantastic.

    ha ha, no thank you.

    I have one for my Old Testament class, and I'm not a fan.

    besides, my life just isn't that interesting.
