Thirty-three years later, I practically have an alergic reaction to "Jesus Junk". The merchandisers of the seventies were amatuers compared to what is available today. One item I always thought was beyond absurd are the Testamints (little candies with a cross on it). So I was a little suprised when my daughter had a knock-off tin of mints called "Fish Mints". (Their website claims to "Be Reaching the World one piece at a time.")
"Sweetheart, where did you get these?" I inquired, turning the small tin in my hand. The lid said these were sugar-free and promised a bible verse inside.
"At the Hobby Lobby," she shrugged.
"Let me rephrase... Why did you get these?"
"I don't like Altoids, and these were cute," she replied.
"Yeah," she answered, taking back the tin. "They have these cute little fish named Darwin."
I choked on my drink and spluttered, "Darwin??"
"Mm-Hmm," she smiled. "These little fishy are called Darwin Fish."
I have obviously been neglectful in my duties to raise my children in the Christian subculture. :)
