Easter Conversations

Overheard at the Gigante family Easter dinner table.

Conversation #1
Nephew: "Uncle José, why can't I find any ammo?"
Me: "Because everyone's scared of what the new emperor will do to prevent us from buying it in the future and are buying it all up so that the manufacturers can't keep up"
Nephew: "What are they trying to do?"
Me: "Well, there's the tax it to oblivion angle, or the serial number it scheme, essentially, everyone thinks they're gonna do something to make ammo damned hard to come by"
Nephew: "That's stupid"
Me: "yep" goes on to explain what shops he can try to find some decently priced .40SW.

Mom: "ABC had a program on Friday that said having a gun wouldn't do any good since you would be too scared to use it"
Me: "ARGH!" explains how flawed the ABC program was "Would you rather have a chance and a gun or be helpless and hope that the mutant gunning people down thinks you're already dead or runs out of ammo?"

Then there was a conversation about Zombie Jesus and how freakishly strong he was to move that rock (or what I imagine my 2yo great nephew would think of the resurrection of Christ during Sunday school).  It was determined I should never teach Sunday School, go figure.
