Alex Riggle

Picture of Alex RiggleYour Intrepid Blogger is a forty-something, pudgy, mostly bald Orthodox Reader in an OCA parish in western Washington State. After 20 years of database programming, the beeswax taper finally went on over his head, and he has pursued his dream career — as a secondary mathematics teacher. He’s got the credits and the credentials, now he just needs his first job.

Founder and editor of the Onion Dome online Orthodox humor site, creator of inimitable characters Father Vasiliy Vasileivich and Professor Yeraslav Penguin, and coiner of the phrase, “Is outrage!”, your intrepid editor is currently editing his saint-a-day Onion Dome entries from 2013 with hopes of publishing them in a nifty synaxarion.

He also has a “secular” blog of mostly fairy tales and flatulence jokes at Temporary Sanity.

PS please buy his book.

  1. I’m new to your blog, and so happy I’ve found it! I love your style and intelligent humor; you somehow manage to weave reverence and irreverence together to make everything come out even. I’m a not-so-newly converted Orthodox Washingtonian myself, and I can relate to a lot of what you’ve experienced. Just wanted to say thank you for what you’re doing! 🙂

    I would like to ask Fr. Vasily of his view on the Great on Holy Council that is scheduled to happen next week…

    • Was it great and holy council in 19th century Russia? No, it was not. Always with this new, new, new. Old great and holy councils were good enough for us. We did not need new great and holy council. Is outrage!
