Review Summary

Smalltime Oakland mob enforcers Jesus (David "Dyno" Rocha) and Navajas (Carlos "Pelon" Vasquez) attempt to smuggle ten pounds of heroin out of Texas and into California. But their pickup truck is stolen somewhere in the Lone Star State, with the drugs in it, and they have to turn into detectives to recover it. They quickly find a record store owner who knows the dirtball rednecks who stole the truck; the rednecks have set up a sale to a local pusher with a bad haircut. Jesus and Navajas discover the details and set out to interrupt the proceedings -- with guns ablazing. ~ Buzz McClain, Rovi

moonwalking birds, alcoholic monkeys, fish with two..uh...Anyway, we started a 56-year series on Isaiah

I love our tribe.
Today's  open source  ( or is it "open sores"?..see this) conversation on the practical spiritual application of some of these "world's weirdest" animals was great:

Here's the whole series of "World's Wierdest"..270 weird animals!
We also started a 56-year series on which everyone contributed.
Spy Scott gave some historical help, as you can see..

Here are  a couple links on the puns and wordplays in Isaiah that were mentioned:

Click this for Isaiah 42 wordplay (on board).


Isaiah 5:7 and Puns in Hebrew

Since I’m presently working on Isaiah for the series it’s only natural that I’d wind up in Chapter 5 with it’s stunningly beautiful pun

לְמִשְׁפָּט֙ וְהִנֵּ֣ה מִשְׂפָּ֔ח לִצְדָקָ֖ה וְהִנֵּ֥ה צְעָקָֽה׃

God looked for justice (mishpat) but only saw oppression (mispach). God looked for righteousness (tzedakah) and instead he heard an outcry of pain (tz’acha).
This pun is virtually impossible to render in English. link
