Bindy The Monkey Remembers "Touchdown Jesus"
For years, the world has been consumed by one debate: "Big Butter Jesus" or "Touchdown Jesus?" You see, the Solid Rock Church on 1-75 in Ohio has a 62 foot high statute of Jesus. Over time, two primary nicknames have been used for this modern technological marvel. One camp has taken to calling it "Big Butter Jesus" because it kind of looks like it is made of butter. The other camp has decided to take a play out of the Notre Dame play book and call it "Touchdown Jesus" because it looks like he is signaling a touchdown. Bindy decided to take a trip to see the statue in person (monkey), which was valued at $300,000.
That's right, I said "was." Although Bindy made the trip, before the great debate could be settled, Big Butter/Touchdown Jesus was no more. Tragically, lightning struck down the statue, causing a mega fire that burned it to the ground.
Although the statue may have looked like it was made of butter, it was actually made of plastic form and fiberglass over a steel frame. At the end of the day, it might as well have been made of butter, because now all that is left of this once mighty landmark is that frame. If losing the statue was not enough, the remnants of the structure fell into the pond killing all of the fish. Well, I guess if it was made of butter, they would have died of high cholesterol.

Postscript: You'd think all those fish dying would piss off a group like PETA, but they jumped into the fray and offered to rebuild the statue if they rebuilt the statue with Jesus holding a Lamb saying "Blessed Are the Merciful. Go Vegan." The church declined the offer.
