Next to crucifixes. Aisle 5.

Associate: You need something?
Woman: Yeah, maybe you know. Which are the nails they used to crucify Christ with?
Associate: … Uh, maybe these?
Woman: Right. I don’t think those are the ones I’m looking for, but you’re on the right track.

    In Abilene, Texas, there’s a place called “Bible Hardware” (in general, Abilene has a frightening number of businesses that have some Christian-related terminology worked into their name).

    I strongly suspect that they carry the nails this lady is looking for, along with cubit measuring tapes and “pleasing unto the Lord” scented incense and wood chips for the backyard grill.

    In Cyprus, we have similar situations where priests offer reprisals of the crucifixion during Easter. They actually find volunteers who wish to ‘fast’ in a similar way as ‘The Lord’ once did and crucify them.

    So I guess you can find those kinda nails here…


    (great blog by the way)

    I find both of these comments more than a little frightening, and fascinating at the same time.
