My friend Jason Boyett is running a contest on his blog, and I need your vote to win.
Among the many things that Jason does, he owns fakebandshirts.com, a site where you can order a t-shirt for a band that doesn’t exist. Brilliant, no? (Jason also dresses like a clown for elderly bachelor parties and gives juggling lessons to dyslexic farmhands.)
Jason recently accepted submissions for a new band name to adorn a t-shirt, with the only rules being that the name of the band had to come directly from text from the Bible.
Being that i love creating fake band and album names, I was all over it. I loaded up the Bible Gateway on my Interwebs browser and searched long and hard through obscure KJV texts in order to come up with a great band name. (man, i gotta tell you, that KJV sure does read funny. i’ll take a modern translation any day.)
Here were the names I submitted:
Nor Thine Ox
Captain of Fifty
(2 Kings 1:9)
Slaughter of the Kings
Zenas the lawyer
By Reason of the Fire
No King but Caesar
There was Corn in Egypt
My personal favorite was “Of Pomegranates”, but Jason chose “There Was Corn in Egypt” as one of the 6 Finalists. So, how can you help?
If I win, I think i get a t-shirt with the band name on it or something.
(and while you’re at Jason’s site, you might want to consider buying his book “Pocket Guide to the Bible” for $6.99. That’s pretty cheap, especially considering he’ll autograph it for you…with his own blood! don’t worry, he has his blood in a pen, it’s not like he would cut off his finger and use the bleeding end of it to sign the book. that would be gross.)
