While I was working as a shift manager for Pilot Travel Centers, I always had fun trying to tell people what I did for a living.  
"So where do you work?"
"I work at Pilot."  
"You're a pilot?!"

The Christian Anomaly

ANOMALY: something that deviates from what is standard, normal, or expected

Bannerman, in Church of Christ, writes: "A solitary Christian is worse than a contradiction, he is an anomaly, standing out against the express institution of God, which has appointed the fellowship of believers in one Church, and made provision in its outward ordinances for their union and edification.  The Christian society is a kingdom, set up by express Divine appointment, and differs from every other society on earth in this remarkable fact, that the builder and maker of it is God."
