Joplin Globe Madness: Rita Crowell’s Amazing Tennis Ball Trick


image c/o Rawhead in the comments


Man, ever since the tornado, there hasn’t been much silliness in the Voices section. It’s become a chore to read, honestly. We got somebody thanking folks for helping clean up after the tornado, we got someone fretting about the economy, we got Rita Crowell complaining about sacrilegious tennis balls, we got a old fellow complaining about wait a minute what was that?

Tennis balls make Jesus cry?

There was an article in The Joplin Globe this past month regarding a female artist who enjoyed tennis so much that she inserted tennis balls in a fanciful manner into her own paintings of classical art.

I would strongly urge her, and anyone else, not to insert anything to destroy or distort the integrity of any Christian religious painting.

To me, this is sacrilegious, irreverent and makes a mockery of God our creator, sustainer and redeemer.

You think that’s bad, you obviously haven’t seen what this lady does with ping pong balls.

    Glad to see you’re on top of this important issue. I made this: http://i.imgur.com/DwRjq.jpg and posted the url in a comment but I doubt the Globe moderators are going to let it through. I doubt Rita has a computer anyway. I guess I’ll have to print it out and mail it to her or something along with a plate of tennis balls at the last supper and virgin mary with tennis ball chest augmentation. Would probably be pretty offensive to just replace Jesus’ head entirely with a tennis ball. *shrug*
