And for Lent, Matthew, I Will Be


wearing a Weapon of Mass Destruction T-Shirt.

Think about it.

Groan.

From
AmericanPapist who says he's not an average Catholic - he really isn't - he's pretty intense, but quite funny. And obsessed with the papacy. Check out the picture he uses for his banner. And the Papist News Ticker.

And the story about the Pope saying there needs to be more dialogue on a greater role for women in the institutional church.

In highly improbable case of readers looking for a girl wearing one of these T-Shirts around Dublin - I won't be.
I don't do T-Shirts with stuff written on them - but will make an exception for this one.

Auds - nice work.

If you can find a way of getting those tshirts into Ireland, let me know. Tried to order one once for fun and, em, private functions, but apparently they don't ship outside the US. Wonder if we could get a few people together. We're not the only two, I know.

I do remember hearing about that before Richard.

I think it's a smart T-Shirt with a truly shocking message -
Reagan can be cool.
Well, to conservative geeks anyway.

Yeah, a minority interest perhaps.

Well that's how majorities start.
Wear the Reagan TShirt to carefully selected events and watch minority watch the majority shed the Che Shirts in a great vestiture revolution.


(I think it's the W Ketchup talking at this point!)

Lol! I'd forgotten about the ketchup. Wonderful. I remember a friend trying to get enough people together to order a crate. Beyond parody, but priceless.

In stage whisper, as flatmates find this the most irritating thing about living with me -

I did own a number of W Ketchup bottles - after a normal period of ketchup use the ketchup finished - and the bottle was refilled with Heinz ketchup, which despite going against the principle of the creation of W ketchup, actually tasted better.

Flatmates objected to meticulous ketchup bottle refilling, and being observed every time they used ketchup for any sudden knife movements that might have damaged wrapper.
Bottle now empty sitting on my bookshelf.
Crazy girl obsessed with W ketchup underwent Heinz ketchup reexposure and emerged from the whole ordeal relatively unscathed.

Be thankful you didn't get the crate, Richard. Who knows where it all could have ended.

It's all fun and games til someone loses an eye. (I've actually met patients who have had eye accidents with ketchup - not good. one in particular was left blind because of infectious complications.
Ketchup better than battery acid though - ketchup is acid but battery fluid is alkali and can therefore move through the layers of cells and burn quite deeply in the eye.)

Too late - lost internal rambling control mechanism....sorry!
