Great Idea - Tell The Kids They're Getting Ready For Battle Just Before You Put Them To Bed

When I saw the title of the Boing Boing post Armor of God kids pajamas, I thought it would be some kind of Mormon sacred underwear thing, or maybe an anti-masturbation aid (e.g., item 5 here).

Turns out the pajamas aren't that weird, although it could be argued that sleeping in a metaphorical representation of Ephesians 6:10-18 (the verses about putting on the Armor of God to do battle against the armies of Satan, etc., etc.) isn't far removed from sleeping with the Book of Mormon in hand (suggestion 18).

Then I saw the picture:

and thought "The boy's got crazy eyes... Operation Rescue eyes."

And "Shouldn't the word along the bottom of the tunic read 'No!' and be upside down?"

And "Speaking of 'Truth' appearing over young Stuart's Danger Zone, who's going to be the first to make the joke 'You can't handle the Truth!'?"

Okay, I have to quote Frank Zappa now: [in brimstone-laden evangelist preacher voice] "I know that you don't know what I'm talking about, but What The Fuck."

Think I'll go finish my kool-aid now. Kudos on "you can't handle the truth," by the way. :) Masterful.
