Bargain of the Day: Various talismans and a trippy mirror

According to my calculations, I've been on 28 flights this year so far, and it's a miracle I'm still alive because I did it all without the help of a Guardian Angel for Flying, a gold-coloured brooch of a chubby 747 with an angel on the wing:

A traveler's Guardian Angel
Will protect you when you fly
Keep you safe and guide you
Across the open sky.

And here was me thinking it was air traffic control, VORs, DMEs and other radio navigation aids. Nor is Sekhmet safe without a brass Guardian Angel for Cats hanging from her collar. In case she thinks I don't love her enough, I can wear a Cat Angel Pin:

Wear this special angel pin
As a symbol of your love
For your precious little pet
Protected from above

But what first attracted me to this vendor's page was a stunning Crucifix Infinity Cross Mirror:

"BREATH TAKING" THIS IS AN INSPIRATIONAL JOURNEY! WHEN YOU LOOK INTO THE MIRROR ...IT CONTINUES ON AND ON! YOU MUST SEE IT FOR YOURSELF! APPROX.11" X 14". (OFF AND ON SWITCH) AND WHEN YOU TURN IT OFF IT'S A REGULAR FRAMED MIRROR! IT'S "BEAUTIFUL", A REAL CONVERSATION ITEM. (BRAND NEW IN BOX)

Do not use in combination with hallucingens.

Oy, have I got a bargain for you already

It's not just Christians who are prone to religious tat, and Judaism has a several thousand year start. What about these three Chanukah pens? (sorry, buggered the link up and didn't realise until it had expired

It's the 'write' idea for sending holiday greetings.... great for school or to give as a gift!. Dark blue, and light blue, letters in Gold. Pens are 5 3/4 inches tall. Comes from smoke free home, feel free to email me with any questions that you might have.

Your child more into sports than literature? Give them the Sports Mezuzah:

This brand new, packaged sports Mezuza would be a great gift for that boy on your Chanukah list! This 5 inch tall 1 1/2 inch wide ceramic mezuza is brightly hand painted. Has a baseball, basketball, soccer ball, and football. Parchment included, I don't see any nails for hanging.

Perhaps this Plush Dancing Dreidel Toy is more your style, though Charlie insists that this Musical Dreidel Top, which lights up and plays a song, is not religious tat (even if it is cheap plastic), but a perfectly traditional Chanukah toy. I didn't ask about the puppy.

Update, 22.53pm: This Baseball Chanukah Menorah appeared on eBay a couple of hours ago:

Attention all baseball fans! Here is the menorah for you! You are bidding on a charming Chanukah menorah with a baseball theme. This item is ceramic, approximately 10"x5" and stands six inches high at its tallest point which is a scoreboard declaring Happy Hanukah.

The vendor will ship worldwide, too!

Bargains of the Day: Nativity globe and pink Jesus

This Nativity Musical Water Globe sounds like something from GnomeMart:

Brand New! Double-level musical water globe with nativity, very detailed. 7" diameter x 10 3/8" high. Plays Silent Night.

Jesus Etched on White Granite is a disappointment - the artist is a computer:

Etched into a 12 x 12 x 1/4" piece of pure white granite is this unique composition made up of thousands of crosses to create Jesus' image. The close-up picture shows how amazing and unique this art is. The image is etched with a highly accurate, computer-controlled laser. The image is cut away then washed with color.

A pink Jesus - does Pat Robertson know?

In the interests of fairness, I ought to mention the WITCHES CHEST! L@@K! Loaded !

Book summaries

I have a vast collection of loony fundie nonsense and other strange religious literature. It ranges from the hate-filled lies which fuelled the Satanic abuse myth of the late 1980s to stuff which is, well, just odd. It's too good just to sit there taking up bookshelf space, and so as a new feature here at the Prattle I'm going to add summaries of the books - what do they claim, information about the author and their influence in the world at large. The first book is one I picked up at a local car boot sale last Sunday - Marc Dem's The Lost Tribes from Outer Space explains that the Jews are really the separate creation of a space alien, JHWH, and he's coming back to take them somewhere better any day now (and destroy the rest of us in the process).

Update, 6th April 2003: These now have their own category and will appear in the Prattle as they are done.
