Food for thought

I got up this morning and turned on the TV to catch the start of the France-Spain football quarterfinal match. Unfortunately I was too early and it was instead just time-filling "build-up" coverage. Over on the another channel (TV2) religious programming ruled the airwaves.

It was a show piped in from the US and featured a energetic preacher similar to that parodied on The Simpsons. They were advertising a video called "Discipline: Taming Your Flesh". As Tom would say, it sounded like something you would expect from Madame Lash's House of Masochism.

An excerpt of the video was shown with the subtitle "Crucify your flesh". Here is the complete text of what the preacher said in this snippet.

"If you can not beat a hamburger, how can you expect to beat a devil that is trying to kill you in the wilderness."
A truer word has never been spoken.

Cletus, don't tame your flesh like that. You'll go blind...

I'm not sure I follow the crucify your flesh logic BTW. I suppose that'd tame it though.
