Hip and Thigh: Smiting Theological Philistines with a Great Slaughter. Judges 15:8

Well Go Figure,

I learned this week from our Master's Seminary newsletter that Bug attended TMS. You remember Bug, right? He played the jerk boyfriend in the movie Uncle Buck and has one of the most quotable scenes ever from a John Candy movie.

[Bug is necking with Buck's niece, and when Buck pulls up in front of the school with his beat-up old car to take the kids home,]
Bug: Ever hear of a tune-up? Hee hee hee hee hee.
Ah, heh heh heh. Ever hear of a ritual killing? Ah, heh heh heh heh heh

I don't get it.

Buck: You gnaw on her face in public like that again and you'll be one. Ah, heh heh heh heh!

Bug eventually gets his comeuppance when Uncle Buck kidnaps him from a party with a power drill, strips him down to his underwear, stuffs him in the trunk of his car, and then makes him apologize to Buck's niece for being a cad. Then after Buck turns him loose, he pelts him with golf balls as Bug tries desperately to run across an open field to cover.

Who would have thought he would become a pastor? Talk about God working in mysterious ways.
