Logo for Catholic Church features child performing oral sex? (link roundup)



Supposedly, this is the circa 1973 design for the Catholic Church's Archdiocesan Youth Commission. I have a hard time accepting it. And if it is true, I have a hard time accepting the artist didn't set out to depict a child performing oral sex on a priest. Via these sites.

And a few more links:

1. Some accurate comments about why it's hard to make anything more than spare change blogging. Probably the most important point is that the best paying opportunities go to people who are already established journalists.

2. King Kong really loves that skyscraper.

3. Creepiest headline that's apparently not a big deal: "Plague found in squirrels at San Diego County camp site."

4. Neil Gaiman wrote up an absolutely tremendous recommendation for the book Who Killed Amanda Palmer (it's a collection of her posing as if she's died in various bizarre manners, coupled with short stories he wrote based on the photos).
