Cartoon Church or Real Church?

Cartoon, explanation for which is in the text of this post
Cartoon from The “How you can use the cartoons” page says nothing about linking to them from a website. So here’s one of them! Not because I want to rip it off, but because I want you to go see the rest of them!

I realised this evening that my link to the Technorati website didn’t make the leap from WordPress 1.2 sidebar (right!) to 1.5. I’ve rectified this now.

Technorati is great. Amongst other things it will tell you what other blogs link yours. An example: what other blogs link mine.

Exploring the links I came across the excellent and this rather wonderful cartoon (above), which shows a church noticeboard that reads:

Our services are a bit dull and not many people turn up, we do not have a website as we do not really know how to make one, and there is not anyone available to speak to you at the moment as we are all quite busy, what with one thing and another. PS We need some money for the roof.

“We do not need to get someone in to help us with marketing our church as we are perfectly able to do it ourselves,” say the parishioners. That cartoon feels rather uncomfortably close to the truth, I’m sorry to say.
