Top Eleven Ironic Catholic Discoveries of 2006

Ok, granted, I've only been doing this since March. And I have a list of personal favorite "fake news" posts on the sidebar. But since everyone else is doing it, and we mostly cave to convention* we have the Top Ironic Catholic Discoveries (i.e. some of the best true stories, links, pictures, anything I did NOT write) of 2006. In no particular order, realizing I probably missed all the truly hilarious stuff, I present our humble list. Drum roll please....

  1. It's sacred oil! Or chapstick! Really, whichever you want!
  2. Dance, Catholic, Dance
  3. Beware false Papal organists! They will come like a thief in the night!
  4. The Sistine Chapel is recreated through spray paint in...Iowa....
  5. Insurance won't cover Second Coming incidentals
  6. Pre-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  7. kind of advent calendar
  8. A Theological Engineering exam
  9. "10 Things I Hate About the Ten Commandments" (note warning and disclaimer: this video is NOT rated G)
  10. Crummy Church Signs, a sampling of roadside crumminess
  11. "The De-Deification of the American Landscape"
* note we have 11 instead of 10! Hah! We're different!

Have an ironic 2007!

I'm honored to have made your year-end list. Riddled with anxiety, but honored all the same. Happy (ironic) Epiphany.
