    Possession by Satan sounds a whole lot like a PCP high. Or rabies. Either way, the phrase “honorary president for life of the International Association of Exorcists” has totally made my day.

Or church-approved, hetero, married, procreative, missionary-position sex. None of that exercise nonsense. Unless it’s this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpcYPiE6A1s
