It’d be really nice to have a teleporter. Lots of reasons why, but today the reason has to do with the announcement of the annual free admission day at The Holy Land Experience. I’d never pay to see that shit but after watching Religulous and getting a glimpse at the daily hilarity available on site, I discovered a craving to see it first hand.

The park must offer free admission to the public one day each year under a state law that then guarantees Holy Land a property-tax exemption as a religious entity.
The exemption saves the park about $300,000 a year in Orange County taxes, according to property-appraiser records.
