Seculars burn rubber for no godly reason

Charlotte, NC, November 17, 2006 (RP) -- No longer willing to concede a single "NASCAR Dad" to what they call "the cult of Sectarian Inhumanism," secular humanists have taken to auto racing circuits to promote their beliefs. Afraid to be left behind, other groups are hurriedly fielding racing teams, too.


The American Atheist team's Ford leads, as the Amalgam-
ated Woo-Woo team's driver tries to slip past on the inside,
followed closely by Team Evolve's Ford. On the outside, the
Wicca car is being drafted by the ID Creationism Lite Dodge.

"After the drubbing theocratic forces have taken across the nation in the November 2006 elections, we have an opportunity to press home our advantage," says George Sohnsheim of the Secular Humanist Influence Team. "NASCAR fans are a critical demographic. They're typically male, working class high school graduates from the South and farming states. In the past, we secular humanists have ignored these people."

Selling NASCAR fans short was a huge strategic mistake, said Sohnsheim. "The NeoCons sure as hell didn't ignore them, and they came close to making America a theocracy. We secular humanists have frankly been elitist toward NASCAR fans. But all that's crap's gonna change right now. If we don't get our message to NASCAR fans, the Fundies will, and we'll be up shit creek without a paddle again in 2008."

Sohnsheim gestured to indicate the four secular racing teams his group is promoting. "We've got some of America's best scientists and engineers in our crews. Even some of our mechanics are rocket scientists. So we're taking our message to the common folks in great big letters right across the hoods of our cars. And we're going to kick some ass on the track while doing it!"

Good work, Mooner. The photo came out expecially nice.

OK, this has gotta be about that mope who doesn't make all the races, Kirk Shelmerdine who drives the "Racin for Jesus" car.

Lessee.

99 - Atheism - Carl Edwards, Rousch Racing
21 - Wicca - Kenny Schrader, Woods Brothers Racing
38 - WooWoo - Gilland, loser rookie, in a car Eliot Sadler got out of for the Evernham #19 Dodge.
40 - Creationism Lite - Casey Mears, he's sometimes the scene of the accident
88 - Evolve - Dale "race the truck" Jarrett

Edwards and Schrader are good drivers. Gilland and Mears suck. Jarrett used to be a good racer, now he's just angry.

Excellent work HalfMooner! I can barely open PhotoShop, let alone use it constructively. I'm impressed. Funny as hell too!

One correction to my own post. Morgan Shepard drives the "Racin for Jesus" car.

I am available for consults on race car drivers. Although, don't ask me about fantasy race teams. Mine sucks this year.

Very nice work! A tip of the hat...er..um...I mean...a tip of the easel to you. You're a master! (I sometimes get paid for the graphic art work I do, and I often struggle with Photoshop's eccentricities.) It's a very clever image!

Thanks much, Chip! I've been playing with paint programs since before there was a PC, using an Atari 800. I don't think I'm especially skilled, and never had formal training. I don't really understand half of Photoshop's tools. I'm especially rusty right now. But I've done this stuff a time or two in the past. Sometimes, brute force employing time, and shameless, repeated use of "undo," can trump a basic lack of skill.

BTW, I'm working on a photo meant to show the SFN car in the pit right now. I'll only post it if it works, though.

Okay, fixed the "pit" images. Here's the forum-sized version of the SFN NASCAR pit. (I had to keep it smallish, as it would otherwise mess up the forum's formatting.)



For those of you who might like to see greater detail, try this link for a BIG (1,787 pixels wide) image.
