Father Ted

This puts me in mind of the episode where they were on a plane returning from Lourdes, examining their souvenirs which included the holy sellotape dispenser (complete with Virgin Mary statuette). "You have used 2 inches of sellotape. God Bless you".

I love the idea that the heart beats red, just like E.T. I would definitely buy an E.T usb stick.

Other versions?

Is there a version sporting the image of Mohammed?

Or does that carry a 40 lashes/15 days inside/deporation fee?

Mother of God?

My christian mythology knowledge is quite limited, but Jesus and God aren't actually the same entity AFAIK. Mary being the mother of Jesus clearly isn't the mother of God, and indeed the whole idea that a deity that created everything had a mother is a fairly stupid one.

Sorry, but Mohammed's face or image is never shown.

Give me PC in my heart, keep me booting.

I'm going to get one and call it Paddington. But if it eats a Marmite sandwiches instead of marmalade one then there WILL BE SOME MIGHTY SMITING. Susan be praised.

Good Lord

This is virgin' on the ridiculous.

Keeping the biblical theme, how about an Apple of Temptation stick, for Mac owners?

Yes, the one with the dog collar, please.

Mythology? Well, I suppose a mythos would have to be called that wouldn't it?

Anyway, the best explanation I ever heard for the Trinity was in Nuns on the Run, when Robbie Coltrane's character relays the way his Father (priest, not biological) used to describe the trinity. "It's like a clover. Tree leafs, but one leaf." Which later got translated in to "small gree and split three ways"...

Damn good film.

It's not quite apt, of course. The church fathers spent almost a century in the 200s AD (or CE if you prefer) defining what the words meant before they even started trying to describe the concept to each other (and consequently it's not a surprise that the word most often used for legalistic, impenetrable hierarchies is "Byzantine", since that particular empire was where about half these word-wibblers lived at the time...).

Like quantum theory, anyone who claims to understand it hasn't really grasped the implications.

Protect your own files.

The true God created everything and he never had a mother.

These USB flash drives were man-made, not perfect. The man-made "virgin" cannot protect you and your files. Trust me, these can still be infected by man-made viruses.

Why don't you guys just make a backup, or simply don't put anything confidential there if you want protection and security. And on top of all, why not pray to be protected. You don't need man-made idols or images.

It gets better

On the site where I originally saw this 'gift' (sorry, can't remember the address), there were also a monopoly-type game where you try to get yourself elected Pope, a holy nightlight that, revolving, displays scenes from the nativity and - literally - 'Christ on a bike' (a plastic figure of Jesus riding a Harley - a la Dennis Hopper - complete with crown of thorns on his bonce and cloak billowing behind.)

Ye Gods and little bloody fishes. Ooop! There's another idea for a holy Christmas gift!

"My christian mythology knowledge is quite limited, but Jesus and God aren't actually the same entity AFAIK."

If it was logical it wouldn't be religion/mythology/superstition, now would it? Lots of people actually do say that in one of their prayers, and since whatever you make up is good enough in this field... There you go.

Saint Jobs, because he thinks he is god.

Yes remember, virgins can still be infected by viruses. Be careful out there, kiddos, and always use protection when interfacing with unknown hardware.
