Who’s Your Daddy?

imagesCA8WHA01I am more convinced every day that we must be living in some kind of bizzaro world. Hopefully one day we’ll wake up and say, “Whew! What a wild dream!”

This past week I stood in a line at Wal-Mart at the pharmacy. Below the gum to help people to quit smoking and beside the antacids I noticed a box. The price stamped on the package in large letters was $129.00. Then I noticed it was marked down to $26.99.

That sure was expensive gum. Then I looked closer. It was a paternity test. Really? You can buy those in Wal-Mart? Who buys these things? Why was it marked down? Was the date about to expire? What would happen if you bought an expired one? Would it tell you, you had a different daddy?

From there I traveled to Costco and stood in another pharmacy line. While I waited for the pharmacist to locate my husband’s meds I noticed a product on the wall behind the cash register. I squinted to read the label. It said, Doggie Beer. No way!

When I got home I looked up Doggie Beer on the internet. The first thing that popped up was an ad . . . for Doggie Beer. It suggested you buy a 6-pack of their product for “Fur-thers Day” so your dad could drink with his best friend. All this for only $37.99.

I’m still scratching my head. I don’t think I’ll go out much anymore. The world is going nuts and I don’t care to ride along.

  2. Hadn’t noticed anything as weird as these, but I have to agree the world is going downhill on a 2-man luge! When I hear profanity coming out of mouths everywhere, both young and old and see previews of movies or TV shows that disregard all propriety it makes me very uncomfortable. My usual circle of friends are those who are Christian, so it is hard for me to relate to those who are not. However, God’s command is for those of us who know Him to spread the Light and Word so others will be able to know Him, too! We can’t just depend on pastors and church leaders to do that for us.
