"Porn and Pancakes": top THAT!

A contest!

Yahoo News is reporting that a church in New York state is advertising a "Porn and Pancakes" breakfast for its congregation. That is, eat your pancakes and learn about the ugly reality of pornography in our culture and how to resist it.

I guess I'm for attention-grabbing ads for a worthy cause...I think. But as for the contest...what do you think the pastoral committee batted around for an "eat and catechesis" event before they landed on this one?

Suggestions:
  • "Hubris and Hotcakes"
  • "Envy and Eggbake"
  • "Chiliasm and Chili"

Put your entries in the comments ("midrash") box. I'll pick a winner after 8 pm CST on Friday, February 2. The winner shall receive boundless glory in the blogosphere, and a link to his or her homepage.

UPDATE: We have a winner!

I was going to enter "Communism and Cupcakes"...

...but I think "Sodomy and Sausages" is much more attention grabbing!!!

i titled a series of five postings on my site "But Mass is so boring!" Part 1, then Part 2, Part 3, and so on in which i try to show that the Mass is never boring if we give ourselves to the Lord in the Mass. Does that count as irony?

peace be to you!

How about a church fellowship dinner followed by a discussion of the sin of gluttony? We could call it "Repast and Repentance"!
The next week, we could have a big dinner followed by a lesson on fasting (I just love irony,) and call it Feast-N-Fast!
With more & more of our youth getting high on prescription drugs, maybe we should promote "Prayer & Medication."
"Home-Cooked Meals & Homosexuality"?
"The All-Star Salvation Salad Supper" (Now playing at a Denny's near you!)?
"Hotcakes & Holy Communion!" followed by "Egg Salad & Excommunication!"
"Just Desserts": a discussion of Divine Judgment accompanied by plentiful cakes, pies, and puddings.

Oddly enough, the early church already had this concept down.
They held a fellowship meal that ended in the Eucharist, and they called it a "Love Feast." Then again, when they did it, it wasn't a publicity gimmick.
