Andy definitely is a top contender for the 2010 Golden Calf Awards. That’s something I came up with to honor classic lame excuses like this one:
(Exodus 32:21 RSV) And Moses said to Aaron, “What did this people do to you that you have brought a great sin upon them?”
(Exodus 32:22 RSV) And Aaron said, “Let not the anger of my lord burn hot; you know the people, that they are set on evil.
(Exodus 32:23 RSV) For they said to me, ‘Make us gods, who shall go before us; as for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.’
(Exodus 32:24 RSV) And I said to them, ‘Let any who have gold take it off’; so they gave it to me, and I threw it into the fire, and there came out this calf.”
