The Biggest Drug Bust In Mexico’s History Featuring “Catholic” Homer Simpson

Homer Simpson marked marijuna found in Mexico

Does this mean the Vatican supports smokin’ a doobie?

From an article published in the official Vatican newspaper, the Osservatore Romano :

“Few people know it, and he does everything to hide it. But it’s true: Homer J. Simpson is Catholic. [The Simpsons is] tender and irreverent, scandalous and ironic, boisterous and profound, philosophical and sometimes even theological, nutty synthesis of pop culture and of the lukewarm and nihilistic American middle class…among the few TV programs for kids in which Christian faith, religion and questions about God are recurrent themes.”

Paired with this little discovery from the CBS News website…

In one of the biggest pot busts in recent years, Mexican authorities seized at least 105 tons of marijuana bound for the U.S. The drugs, seized in predawn raids in Tijuana, have an estimated street value of $340 million. Festooning some of the parcels with an image of Homer Simpson saying, “I’m going to get high, dude!” may appear naive. But considering the Vatican’s newspaper declared Homer Simpson a “true Catholic” over the weekend, perhaps it was more a coded plea for clemency.

TimingD’oh!

Then the juices started flowing and Jerry served up a story hot with scandal!

Did you know that Mick Jagger experimented with drugs??

Really, is there anything better than baseball? America’s pastime has buried itself deep in our country’s psyche as early as the 1850’s, and it seems that the sport only gains momentum each and every year. Stats versus luck, city against city, home at away, 12 dollar beers or pregame it… everybody approaches the game differently. No matter what your tradition is, the sensations are all the same – against all odds, can we pull off the most important win of the season?

At least that’s how it feels when we’re sitting in the bookies office.

Doing some research, we stumbled across a very important game in the history of baseball: Doc Ellis, former Pittsburgh Pirate recollects of pitching his prestigious no-hitter… on LSD. Don’t believe us? Check out this video and learn what it really means to be a baseball great.
