 Sarah Silverman seems to be one of those "comedians" who have an underlying creepiness to their personality, kind of like the late comedian Andy Kaufman who was a genuinely bizarre dude.

  Also, she looks like she could be Amy Winehouse' sister...( yuck )

    That was really good.It kind of reminded me of a time when a priest knock on my mother's door for block collection and I was the one who answered the door,and after this priest asked me for a donation,I said "why don't you write a letter to the pope and ask him to sell some of his GOLD to help his flock maintain their church". Well this priest gave me a real nasty look and said "Is your mother home"

Signature ? How ?

Nevermind.

 Looks like pablotar already posted this about a week ago.  Nuts!!!  Sorry for the redundant post!

Remember how you figured out there is no Santa? Well, their god is just like Santa. They just haven’t figured out he’s not real yet.

 I saw this on Bill Maher,

 I saw this on Bill Maher, selling the Vatican is a great idea. However, who would actually buy it?

 

Actually, Sarah is 100% right. The Church should own nothing per Jesus, He said to sell all and give it to the poor and follow him. Since they clearly violated his command, they can still fix it by selling all their assets world wide. Think of it, the Cathedral downtown with a For Sale sign.

Wis. priest auctions family silver for homeless

GREEN BAY, Wis. - A Wisconsin priest is auctioning off his late mother's collection of old silver pieces to raise money for a homeless shelter.

The Rev. Guy Blair donated 14 silver items, including five sugar urns dating back to the 1790s. Other pieces include vases and coffee and tea pots.

Tim Rigdon, a director at Heritage Auctions, says the sum of the items' minimum bids is $21,000.

Blair hopes they fetch at least $50,000. He says that would cover the shelter's costs for a few weeks. The proceeds benefit the St. John's the Evangelist Church shelter in Green Bay.

Blair's mother died in July. He says she agreed with him and his four sisters that the silver would do the most good if it were sold for a worthy cause. The auction is Nov. 10 in Dallas.

 

 

 

Now if she could only get the Vatican to do it... and to sell a little more than just the silver.

Sarah Silverman is not only hot but funny and intelligent.

Tbh I have always wondered

Tbh I have always wondered why christianity needs its own country of sorts. Why do they need the vatican? Seems silly and expensive to maintain and rather elitist tbh.

Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend.

Tapey, it's like an expensive Country Club where people like me aren't wanted or allowed.

 

It also makes it easy to wipe out an entire section of perverts without too much collateral damage.

 

So for that I say "Thanks, catholics!"

Blair's mother died in July. He says she agreed with him and his four sisters that the silver would do the most good if it were sold for a worthy cause. The auction is Nov. 10 in Dallas.

 

OK, I call shens on this priest. First off, the current price of silver is just under $18. Taking the lowball price and doing some back of the envelope math, that works out that each piece should weigh in at about 5.5 pounds.

 

Second, what homeless shelter pours through that amount of money in a few weeks? Checking their web site, it turns out that they are not even open until the first of November. I guess that people are only homeless during cold weather or something.

 

It is in a church owned building, so presumably they pay no taxes, the appear to have three part time staff and one assumes a heating bill. Possibly they serve food there as well but still, are the homeless in green bay eating surf and turf or something?

 

Whatever he gets from the auction is going to be donated to the church as even with the angle about the shelter, the church would be paying out of their bank account to run the thing. If the cash to do that comes from somewhere else this year, well that is money that gets to stay in the bank.

i second this, and add that she's unoriginal.  she comes across to me as a spoiled sorority girl trying to do george carlin or lenny bruce for some reason, only her delivery is abrasive and annoying.

a lot of her stuff is just wretchedly pedestrian.  her "i'm fucking matt damon" video on jimmy kimmel struck me as something that, once again, a sorority girl would edit together on her mac and show to all her friends and their bored dates at crush.

also, i don't see the hotness factor.  sideburns on girls don't work for me.

I agree wholeheartedly. Not everything a person does has to be awesome. Everyone in hollywood can be tied to a work of crap, bar none. But her good material is really good.
