Head Rest

Before anyone writes and says, "Eddie, dude, you've got it all wrong! It's PILLARS! NOT PILLOWS YOU CALVINISTIC CLOWN!" Please stop, put down your computer and rest assured that I know this. It's called a play on's supposed to take the original idea and make it humorous. It's like saying, "A dog not only has a fur coat but also pants." It's hard to come up with new ideas every day! Really it is.


  1. I went to a play on words once. It was an off-Broadway show that ran for one week, then tanked. At least I got to see Angus Duncan sing the Ballad of Abbot and Costello before the curtain closed.

  2. John Calvin is known as "The Theologian" of the Reformation; however, it is often pointed out that Calvin "stood on Luther's shoulders".

    I'm not sure what the two of them were trying to accomplish with a stunt like that, but it does evoke a humorous mental image. My guess is that the pair were helping Katharina von Bora escape from the nunnery through a high window.

  3. "It's hard to come up with new ideas every day! Really it is."

    Tell me about it.

  4. At least their twin pillows and not a pillory! I would suggest the two pillars rest upon Augustine.
