Presbyterians Really Are Nerds

A fitting tribute to one of the most dour, humorless clerics to have ever thumped a Bible.

The John Calvin bobblehead.

At a PC(USA) General Assembly near you!


  1. It looks a little stiff-necked to me - but I guess that fits, doesn't it?

  2. I assume the head only shakes side to side, not up and down...

  3. There was a story that circulated around Calvin (the college) about Calvin (the guy) that he actually went to the Geneva City Council to ask them to pass an ordinance making it illegal to name one's dog John Calvin. Apparently he was so disliked by the folks in Geneva, they'd taken to naming their dogs John Calvin.

    I don't know if it happened, but I'm sure it's true. ;)
