Oooh, a Thorn!

A thorn you say? Hmm, oh yeah, I pulled it from my sandal!

I’m not sure I would go all the way to a museum to see a thorn that was “supposedly” on Jesus’s crown. Hmm, nope, no way, never. The crown  was said to have been seized from Constantinople around AD 1200  and was later sold to King Louis IX. Hmm, a thorn you say? Louis stripped the crown of its thorns by giving them to people who married into his family. I bet they were stoked! So anywho, the thorn on display was evidently given to Queen of Scots when she tied the knot with French royalty and she passed it on down the line until it ended up in the hands of a Jesuit priest who gave it to the Ribble Valley college… ta-da. Now, praise the Lord, its  on loan to the British Museum in London.

Rain City Superhero Movement

Attention all bad guys in Lynnwood, Washington, be prepared to have your ass kicked by Phoenix, Thorn, Buster Doe, Green Reaper, Gemini, No Name, Catastrophe, Thunder 88 and Penelope. The gang of 9 superheroes who call themselves ‘Rain City Superhero Movement’ have taken to the streets to help police fight crime. Oh and if you think they are just suffering Batman envy,  these dudes all have either military or martial arts training. Hmm, except maybe for Phoenix’s glamorous female sidekick who drives him around in a KIA but never gets out of the car (possibly his mom). Phoenix carries around mace, tear gas, a taser, bulletproof vest and trauma plating on his arms and legs. Since the superheroes began their crusade 9 months ago they have been shot at, stabbed and laughed at.

Psst Oh and just a word of warning, if you come across Captain Ozone or Knight Owl, ignore them, they aren’t part of the Superhero Movement but just some random superheroes.
