Great Christian News site on the interweb…

September 1st, 2006

Okay, its parody, and a lot of its content is several months (if not years) old, but it still makes me chuckle.

Articles like this one, for example:

DUTTON, Ohio — Parishioners of Shady Tree Lutheran Church say they’re tired of their pastor, Charles Trigleford, 64, mangling internet-related words.
The chief complaint is the way Trigleford says “w-dot” when giving the church’s web site, rather than the technically correct “w-w-w-dot”.

“It’s as if he doesn’t know the other w’s are there,” said Sher Wanstler, 37, a self-described “very annoyed” church-goer. “If you type in ‘w-dot’ and then our web address, you get nothing.”

Parishioner Bob Fairlane says the mistakes rankle some more than others.

“I cringe a little, but at least he’s trying,” Fairlane says.

Others say Trigleford has a history of messing up web terms. He used to call it the “world wide internet” before switching to “the interweb,” they say.

“There was a few weeks when he kept calling them ‘hot links’ instead of just ‘links,'” says Stacy, 13. “It’s embarrassing. Nobody says hot links anymore. That’s a sausage or something.”
