You know you really love the '80s when...

...Keith Olbermann teases an upcoming story about a would-be Republican candidate who claims to have found the The Ark of the Covenant in Arizona, thus:

"I hope all the animals had the right papers with them."

--and you immidiately think, "Ha ha, Keith, but the Ark of the Covenant isn't the same as Noah's Ark, it's the container/chest in which the tablets of the 10 Commandments were carried. Didn't you see Raiders?"


  1. OK, but he can be forgiven. Is it Arc or Ark? What's the Arc of the Covenant? Is that like the Arc of the Rainbow...and is there a Calf of Gold there? I'm sure he's referring to the calf's papers.

    The Ark of the Covenant probably was the boat that carried the Arc to Arizona. To make the trip profitable surely they transported some livestock along with the 13 Commandments. So Keith is right to be concerned.

    Or did Aliens transport the Arc?

  2. You're just funning with me, aren't you?

  3. The last guy who questioned the seriousness of all this in front of the Golden Calf was wiped out by a lightning bolt from the shooting stick of Charlton Heston and the NRA.

  4. But we live in such crazy times it's natural to ask.
