Wonkette's Top Ten Stories Of The Week Are ... Well, There Are Just No Words.
It's been a week.
This week, your present from me is, uh ... well, it's a Christian Science puppet show for children featuring a ventriloquist doll and a panda and a hot German lady, although I don't think the panda talks so much as nods his head a bunch while the ventriloquist doll talks about Mary Baker Eddy. I have not watched the whole thing, but it looks fucking bananas so I absolutely will watch it after I'm done here.

Christian Science was kind of like the first Scientology. There were a ton of celebrities who were into it, including Ginger Rogers, Joan Crawford, Mary Pickford (who wrote a whole ass book about it and everything) Doris Day, Anna May Wong (It is Anna May Wong month on TCM by the way! If it ever comes up in the live chat I have a LOT to say about how she was totally screwed by Hollywood. Also about Mary Pickford vs. Joan Crawford.), etc. etc.
You don't hear too much about Christian Science these days. Guess I should look into that! They're probably still around, not going to doctors and whatnot.
