Cheap Speed for the Land-Locked Masses!

I think I can make one of these.

Heh! Take this you weird, expensive dolphin jet-pack loving, one-percenters!

A Wacky Idea for Cleaning the Sacred Sites in the Holy Land- UPDATED

Talk about things that are “ridiculously Catholic,” how about ridiculously Orthodox things like…BARFIGHT! Oh wait…CHURCHFIGHT!

I mean a fight instead of field-daying (read “cleaning”) the building is always more appealing.

Sheeeeesh. This is getting to be a routine, nay, traditional, occurrence. Call me crazy, but maybe it’s time this “responsibility” was outsourced to a neutral cleaning company, and then the costs shared five ways among the various parties involved here. That way, see, the holy places might actually get cleaned in time for Christmas, Easter, etc.

Here’s who the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs says is involved, [Read more...]

This Video Needs More Bacon (Because Catholics Can Laugh)

The folks at Bad Lip Reading are expanding their repertoire. Probably a smart move, because political ads come and go as the election cycle ebbs and flows. Turning to music videos then, we find that nothing is safe from their lip reading genius.

Here’s my third day of Christmas present to YIMCatholic readers. That Should Be Me, the way Flatts & Beiber never imagined. [Read more...]

Because Fr. Dwight Longenecker Is Wrong UPDATED

What the Sam Hill are you talking about Frank? How dare you say one of the favorite priests of the faithful is wrong about anything! Well, I remember a week or so ago folks were digging how to be a jet-powered, human dolphin. As if that would be a cool present to receive for Christmas. Humbug! How about something a little more practical? Like “cheap speed!” [Read more...]

So I Took This Survey on Who I Should Vote For…

It’s put out by an outfit called SelectSmart.com, and I had no big surprise in what came back. I’ll tell you how I marked my answer sheet on the some of the questions too. Remember this cartoon from the 2008 Primaries? The past is prologue. [Read more...]

Christmas Tunes You Can Listen To All Year

So it’s the third week of Advent, where the “rose” (which looks like pink to me, but what do I know?) colored candle is lit up. As we remembered yesterday on Gaudete Sunday, guadete means “rejoice.” And certainly we want to do that at this time of year. But you know, the Musak has been driving us bonkers since Thanksgiving, playing the same old tired Christmas selections that the baby boomers love and remember. See the photograph above? Bullseye!

Hilaire Belloc Was A Lame Politician? Huzzah!

Preston Brooks, nephew of Senator Andrew Butler, confronts Senator Charles Sumner in the Senate chamber after debates on the Kansas-Nebraska Act, 1856

Someone left a comment on a previous post that Hilaire Belloc was not only a horrible singer (that’s what I had said) but that,

Nor could he do politics in an honourable way! [Read more...]
