Rock-Critic One-Liner Hall of Fame: “Bonotheism”


Sometimes you come up with a pun so deliciously atrocious that it’s almost better to bury it — second-to-last graf of a long review, bottom of a web page, etc. (A half-assed version of this phenomenon may or may not be lurking here.) The Onion has shown such mighty restraint/wisdom in deploying “Bonotheism” in its throwaway fake TV listings (scroll down a bit), when Jesus Christ, that could’ve been a book, a tribute band, a reality show, a religious movement. Outstanding. My mom has been devout in this faith for years and never even knew what to call it.
