FvF competition: readers in all the right places

Don’t forget the new Fact v Faith competition, with the rules: Send a photo of yourself (or a member of your family) holding Faith versus Fact in the most incongruous place or situation you can think of.

When Leo Glenn won the contest with his story about having to bathe nude in a Japanese hot spring with his nether parts dyed bright red from his bathing trunks, he wrote this response (I asked him what kind of cat he’d like drawn in it): What a thrill to win the contest! Thank you so […]
