Oh, Sweet Jesus, What an Ass!

Posted By on Wed, Mar 28, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Sometimes, here in MemphisFlyer.com-land, we get bored. We start feeling jaded. What, we wearily ask, could the world ever offer that would surprise us? You ever feel like that? Sure you do. Which is where serendipity — and this photo — come in.

Intrepid Flyer reporter and Pesky-Fly-about-town, Chris Davis, took the picture while pursuing his daily rounds. We'd love to write a thousand words about it, but in this case, it's probably better to allow the picture to do all the talking. Your job is to imagine just what on God's green earth would provoke a preacher to put this on his church's sign.

Truly, only in Memphis.

Oh, and on the other side? The Spanish version: "Domingo -- Jesus dijo, traerme aquel asno." Madre mia!
