Get a Free Book!

It seems like all the cool people are moving to WordPress. I have decided that I can’t be cool unless I switch too. So I am planning to make the move at the beginning of January. But I need your help. “Sandwiches There” is frankly a stupid blog name. Before that, I was “The Hungry Scholar,” but that made sense when I was only interacting with non-scholars. So what should my blog be named once I move? If you suggest the winning name, I will send you a FREE BOOK! Yes, you read correctly. I will send you a book from my very own book collection. And if it’s a really really great name, maybe it will be a useful book too! Wow, the excitement is making me all giddy. If you offer me a blow-it-out-of-the-water name, I will even consider buying you something from your Amazon wish list.

(It will really have to be just amazing since I’m pretty much broke and need to feed my five small children. But we can sacrifice food for a few days. It’s really no big deal.)

But in addition to the prize, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you helped make a real difference in the world. Good luck!

    Here are some suggestions, keeping with your food motif:

    Food For Thought

    Come To The Table

    Sandwich was there (but now is here)

    Rye ‘n’ Jones

    Messianic Banquet (or Messy & Ick Bank Wet)

    And of course:

    I offered a free book and all I got was this lousy blog title

    Since James is going with the food theme I guess I will too… How about:

    Milk & Meat: Something for Everyone

    Loaves and Fishes… and Lunchmeat too

    The Voice of One Crying in the Wilderness, “I want locusts and honey!”

    The Lord’s Table

    Communal Feast

    Food and Fellowship

    All Meat, No Carbs

    Or if you’re looking for something away from the food theme you can go with:

    Ryan Jones: Anorexic

    Prayer and Fasting

    That’s all I got… But I dontributed more than James so that should earn me at least one book ;^P

    I don’t think anyone would accuse me of being anorexic. Maybe in college, but certainly not now. I put on 10 pounds of sympathy weight for every child we had. That might be good enough reason for me to move away from the food theme…

    These are great. Keep ’em coming.

    How ’bout something totally random, as in something referencing something random in the bible like:

    Fresh Water in a Clay Pot (see Lev. 14:5, NIV)

    Verily, Verily (with tagline: I say to you)

    Forehead of Flint (see Ezek. 3:9, from NKJV)

    Way of the Wind (Eccl 11:5, NKJV)

    I dunno, these are probably lamer than your current one…

    Here’s how you choose a name:

    What is the name of your favorite pet?

    What was the name of the first street you can remember ever living on?

    Take those two names and you now have your blog’s new name.

    BTW, they tell me that’s also how you choose a porn star name… I don’t know anything about that though… I swear… ;^P

    Nick, did you grow up on the Word of Truth street? Rightly Dividing does sound like an appropriate name for a filthy dog or perhaps an obnoxious cat.

    BTW, Do you know how to make a cat sound like a dog? Douse it in gasoline and light a match. “Wooof.”

    Do you know how to make a dog sound like a cat? Stick it in the freezer for a week and then run it over a table saw. “Meeeeeeee-ow.”

    (My wife and kids really really want a dog. I don’t think it’s likely in the forseeable future.)

    Funny stuff… I’m going to have to share those jokes with my daughter… Sadly, no, I didn’t grow up on Word of Truth St. — I grew up on Lakeview… I was foolish enough to pick a title from the Bible… (KJV of course!) You should consider doing that…

    …so when you gonna send my book? ;^P

    Here’s a few suggestions, some of them more random than others:

    Bald and Beautiful


    Mantequilla’s House of Love

    Mr. Jones, and Me

    Wisconsin Jones

    I Ordered this Sandwich on White Bread – Who Put the Ry-an Here?

    I Like Goats

    Panmillenial Orthodoxy Of Praise (POOP)

    Ten Pounds a Baby (offered by Jessie)


    By the way, my favorites offered so far (until my own suggestions) are “Sandwich Was There” and “Way of the Wind” (for it’s gas-passing connotations).

    Ahh… You’re a Charismatic… Fantastic! That makes choosing a new title so much easier.



    Slain in the Spirit

    Shout the Devil Out

    You betta go ‘head Pastor

    An Unknown Tongue

    Word of Wisdom

    Words Easy to be Understood: Who Needs em?

    To Them that Believe Not (This title requires that you proselytize atheists and agnostics)

    I’m Not a Oneness Pentecostal, I Swear!

    These Signs Shall Follow

    Take Up Serpents

    Drink Any Deadly Thing

    Lay Hands on the Sick

    They Shall Recover

    The possibilities are endless… Those are just ideas from 1Cor. 14 and Mark’s long ending (which seems to be foundational for is Charismatic types)…

    Email me for my home address so you can send that book :^P

    I think one could do better than those if one wants something along charismatic lines…

    Human Tongues (I have a separate blog for anglelic ones)

    Not Weber’s Charismatic

    My Spiritual Gift Is Blogging

    I think you should combine Shrek with your sandwich theme and go with:

    Parfait Faith (layers and layers of meaning, and tastier than onions)

    “Parfaits are delicious.” –Donkey

    Grace & Peace,
