Yes, ABBAcadaABBAra! and the faith ABBAsolution was Bjorn, where new followers say "I do, I do, I do, I do, I do", to it everyday. The group's, "I have a Dream" became mantra for others as well. It's "The Name of the Game" that many ordinary people take sABBAticals and ABBAdicate their responsibilities to become "Super Troupers", spending all their "Money, Money, Money" on music, paraphanalia and tickets. (I mean "Does Your Mother Know?") One of the Bennyfits of this faith, is that you can "Take A Chance On Me" and meet some "Fernando" or "Chiquitita" who will say: "Lay All Your Love On Me" and make you a "Dancing Queen" after you belt out that fine old hymm (him?)..."Gimme, Gimme, Gimme A Man After Midnight!" "Knowing Me, Knowing You" it's the best they can do, because they do not believe in ABBAstinence. "Mamma Mia", this ABBAsolution has spread from ABBArdeen to Addis ABBAba to ABBAsynnia and even ABBAtibi, Quebec ("Voulez-Vous?"). The ABBApeal is mAgnethic to devotees Anna-Frieda to join in. Instead of saying Amen...fans say, "Thank You For The Music!" and "SOS"...Save Our Souls, ABBAsolutely!)

Today's definition was inspired by Robert J. Sawyer. One of the neat things about Rob's writing is that he likes to ask questions about the big issues -- like religion and ethics -- while he peppers his stories with pop culture references. And one of his favorite pop icons is Star Trek! Rob we love you! And we celebrate Star Trek in your honor! Not that we're getting religious about it or anything... Thanks! ~ James

'Going where no man has gone before.'

DEFINITION: n. A pop culture entertainment property, which has transcended itself and become a de facto religion with legions of devotees, prescribed rituals and sacred texts. v. To follow a pop culture icon with unquestioning devotion.
