Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

So let me get this straight:

Tom Cruise is pushing for his child bride to undergo a Scientology-proscribed silent-birth delivery, on the theory that “an atmosphere of total quiet, without any groans, screams, or sounds of pain from the mother, or even the audible exchange of information among hospital personnel” is ultimately beneficial for the child.

Yet he’s bought his own sonogram machine, which works by innundating the fetus with high-frequency noise.

I guess Scientologists advocate giving the child an earful (and then some) while in the womb, but not as much after they’re out.

Much like his famed expertise on psychiatry, I think Cruise’s medical knowledge is a little loopy.

If the fashion fluctuations in women’s undies are the signposts of climatic change, count me as glad that I wasn’t around during our planet’s frigid past…

Limbo is among the murkiest of concepts in theological thought. So murky — and problematic when it comes to unenlightened souls — that the Catholic Church, seemingly with support from the Pope, is considering doing away with it.

I guess I don’t have to make any jokes about the notion of an earthly religion changing the rules about its afterlife.

But I will make a joke about Roman Catholics consequently being denied the joys of seeing how low they can go. Seeing as how many people make drunken fools of themselves when trying to maneuver the pole, maybe it’s for the best that strict Catholics pretend both the realm and the dance don’t exist.
