Every Time I Sit Down To Write A New Blog Post, I Get Distracted By The Bloggess

Not that this post is about Jenny; it's actually about something I saw in the news today - and I've just remembered what it was.

The UK has a census coming up and in that census, there is precisely one question that's voluntary - "What's your religion"?

The last time around, 390,000 people put "Jedi".

This year, I'm joining them. *You must do the same.

It's not as much of a protest as sitting in Tahrir Square chanting, "Mubarak must go", but it's a start.

What are they going to do - blow up a planet to bring us into line?

Or perhaps they'll offer us a choice between death and something else.

* Old Jedi mind trick.

I'm just going to put a line through religion!

John - You could always join the Vegnautic Sect of the Pink Unicorn or the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Or just for a laugh, just write "The Church of ........"and add your own name in the space.

TSB - That'd be a very small congregation!
