Great moments in made-up bullshit that never happened

Via James Wolcott comes this forbidding snapshot of a divided America, courtesy the Flower of Christian Womanhood that is the Anchoress. It's a great story -- easily the equal of those ones your youth pastor used to tell you about how he was once a crazy stoner biker guy who, like, used to beat people up and worship Satan and listen to the crazy punk rock once, until he found the Lord -- and it doesn't suffer one bit from being so completely and transparently bogus that people would chortle out loud if it was actually presented to them as fiction. Not since the halcyon days of Penthouse Forum have so many bold words been placed in so many imaginary mouths. Note especially, as does Wolcott, how the commenters on her site are kind enough to play along and pretend that this isn't just some deranged fantasy that took place only inside the rattling, dusty confines of the Anchoress' head. Some of them even contribute hilariously 'actual' anecdotes of their own! It's a fiesta of fun.
