Just got done reading a hilarious take on Mormon history written by Pete Kotz and posted over at our sister paper in Denver, the Westword.
Colorado doesn't know Mormons like we do, so we figure the piece should go over well here, too. He's got over 500 comments on it, which ain't bad.
We'll post some real news after we get done cleaning up the coffee this article caused to be spewed from our mouth.
So, whether you already know a few things about Joe Smith and the Golden Plates or not, check out Kotz's "Mormons: A Shallow Yet Helpful Guide to See if You Should Hate Them or Not."
