In the course of a week, the mobile app “Pokemon Go” has taken over the world, sending smartphone-wielding pixel hunters out into their communities to find virtual Kabutops and Jigglypuffs.
The game caused Nintendo stock to spike 70 percent, adding billions of dollars to the company’s value.
Churches, which are the home to thousands of “gyms” and Pokestops, have been an unexpected benefactor because they are essential stops for “Go” enthusiasts.
Of course, church signmakers are not ones to let an opportunity like this pass them by. Nay, it is the moment for culture’s great marquee poets to shine like never before. (H/T Twitter Moments)
