From Macbeth Act 4, Scene 1:


By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something runed this way comes.
Open, locks,
Whoever knocks.
He will get the Rune he wants…

Pope-A-Runi Mitre

Here is very stylish mitre for forward thinking churches – all of the cool popes are wearing them these days. This sharp mitre is sporting the “Right-and-Left-thru” rune, symbolizing how parishioners should shake hands and welcome each other.

Thanxs to Wikipedia for the definition of mitre:

The mitre (/ˈmaɪtər/; Greek: μίτρα, “headband” or “turban”), also spelled miter, is a type of headgear now known as the traditional, ceremonial head-dress of bishops and certain abbots in the Roman Catholic Church, as well as in the Anglican Communion, some Lutheran churches, and also bishops and certain other clergy in the Eastern Orthodox churches, Eastern Catholic Churches and the Oriental Orthodox Churches.

 A certain Bishop in the Anglican church claims, “This is how we are branding our church’s message, and the message is that ‘we are taking it to the streets, baby!'”

Twinkies…Now and Then

Share Button

You’ve probably been wondering where the Twinkies have been all of these years? Now that they have returned, the secret can be told – They have married, and we here at Runi-A-Runi have Runed their wedding with the first photos taken of the pair on that grand day (and night…)

So, thanks to our Papar-A-Runzis, we display the bliss that unfolded upon Mr. & Ms. Twinkie.

First there was a proposal made and willingly accepted…

The Proposal
The Proposal








Wedding Day

Soon, the wedding day approached…






After a touching ceremony and rollicking reception, the two retired to their wedding suite…

After a few negotiations, the newlyweds pursued the consummation…

Wedding night jitters

But the course of love ran smoothly…







And the two followed their bliss…

And now all can be revealed as the two have propagated many times over, faster than rabbits. As a result, the inhabitants outgrew their house and had to send their progeny out into the world -Much to the Delight OF ALL!!!

As Tom Robbins wrote in “The Purpose of the Moon” (1979):

Vincent van Gogh cut off his ear and sent it to Marilyn Monroe. Not long afterward, Marilyn Monroe flew to Paris, drove a rented car to the south of France and called on Vincent van Gogh.

Following proper introduction, Marilyn Monroe produced a package of Hostess Twinkies. Because Hostess Twinkies always travel in pairs; because, like the coyote, the gorilla, the killer whale and the whooping crane, Hostess Twinkies mate for life, there was a Twinkie each for them to share.

When the snack was done, Marilyn Monroe reached into her sewing basket, drew out a needle and a spool of green thread and proceeded to stitch Vincent van Gogh’s ear right back where it belonged.

“There,” she said, licking a smear of Twinkie cream from the corner of her mouth. “There, you naughty boy. And the next time you want to clip off a piece of yourself as a token of affection, you might keep in mind the old Jewish custom. It’s less messy, more socially acceptable. Remember, to ear is human, but to foreskin is divine.”
