Such wonderful things surround you; what more is you lookin' for?

So Chris and Carla came over to watch and sing along to The Little Mermaid with Amy, Masha, Anna and me. And here's the thing: Scuttle the Seagull sounds exactly like a certain New Testament professor Amy, Eric, Chris and I all had last semester. Like, exactly. And this professor was prone to squawking and shrieking about things like his feud with now-dead Jesus scholar Robert Funk, the founder of the infamous Jesus Seminar, "kids these days and their teeny-bopper talk," Mediterranean types, the evil eye, giving the finger to scholars he disagreed with, how the wedding at Cana was a "major kegger," and one hilarious incident in which a drunk Bob Funk called him up and cussed him out over the phone. So every time Scuttle spoke, Amy and Chris and I all looked at each other and dissolved in giggles, and then when it looks like Prince Eric and Ursula-in-disguise are about to be married and Sebastian tells Scuttle to rally the forces and create a ruckus to stall the wedding? Four words: "STALL DAT JESUS SEMINAR!"
