Back to Back Quickies!

We were driving down the road when we noticed the rather unusual tag on the vehicle in front of us:

[It's a blurry picture but hopefully you can see the tag reads CHRIST]


Hubs:  Look at that!

Me:  Oh my god!  ...so to speak... Well, not my god...

Hubs, laughing:  Do you think it's really him?

Me, laughing:  If it is, this is not the way I pictured it at all.

Hubs:  Huh.  I guess I am a follower of Christ.

Now if you do some dictionary work you find out this...

Christ- Greek chrīstos anointed, translation of Hebrew māshīa anointed, Messiah.
Messiah- Hebrew māshīa literally, anointed.
anointed- smear with oil + -tus past participle suffix.

So maybe this guy is just letting every know he is just smeared with oil.

I'd like to imagine that it's not a reference to this person's personal savior, but an expletive. Since I spend most of my driving time cursing wildly, it just makes sense...

I had the exact same thought as pureklass - ha!

Mike: This is why I don't do dictionary work.

pureklass: Ha! I love it.

The Bug: Blasphemer! Just kidding.

Courtney Runs: :)
