The church that it's okay to blow up.

The inflatable church. When getting to the church on time is just too much trouble, now the church can come to you, complete with wood floors and plastic "stained glass." (Other inflatable website strangeness includes an inflatable performance artist, inflatable beer can computer speakers, 300 ft inflatable buildings, and the inevitable inflatable sheep.) And a nod to past posts on inflatable love dolls that look like Gary Sinese, missing inflatable tanks, lovely balloon hats, and the bizarrely intricate lego cat church.

How 'bout an NSFW notation for those incredibly naive folks like me who momentarily think things like, "inflatable sheep? maybe like the Serta sheep? how cute would that be!"

Whoa. See also the inflatable museum and the human faux pass, who I've seen in person. They put on a freaky show.

Are they going to have to change the "What floats on Water" scene at the start of Holy Grail now?

For more inflatables read the Sluggy Freelance webcomic with its inflatable time machine and inflatable cloned alien monster.

Sorry, clever sheep. The inflatable sheep link should have gotten a "possibly nsfw" tag: it's a gag gift "inflatable love sheep" that looks like a sheep wearing garters. (It is not, for example, porn.)

People are doing strange things with air out there.

Good post! Odd church.

(Although some would probably take you to task for relinking all those greatest hits threads, I like it.)

Great post. There's also the inflatable human hamster wheel.

Inflatable churches! Gee, what's next? Free pick-up and deliverance? (ducks and runs)

That's odd. This is the second reference to the inflatable church I've seen today. Now my brain is reeling as I try to determine if the people from the WashPost LiveOnline Discussion with Carolyn Hax (you'll have to scroll) are reading MeFi or if MeFites are reading LiveOnline. It always very slightly scares me when my virtual worlds collide.

I was wondering that, too, jaquilynne; by timezones I think Ms. Hax's crew linked first, though they missed out on the inflatable sheep. Thanks, onlyconnect. (settles down to developing a business plan that takes advantage of the vast market for inflatable devices. investment capital welcome.)
