Friday Fun Link


Or maybe Friday Fascinating Link … this Theodore Dalrymple mind-bender is best summarized in Doktor Frank's also-fun (or fascinating) link to it:

a Church of England vicar gets his book published by a for-women-only specialty division of a publishing house by managing to leave the impression that he is a young, female Muslim of Indian origin. The hoax is discovered, and the book is "disappeared." And the world "loses" a minor literary masterpiece.

If that's not fun enough for you … how about Dr. Vendyl Jones announcing that he's digging up the Ark of the Covenant? (Via Boing Boing.)
