We Have A Winner! (PG 13)

The winner of the "Better than 'Porn and Pancakes'" pastoral council ad campaign contest is (drum roll please...):

"Sodomy and Sausages"...
contributed by Eve, of A Catholic in Steinbach!
Judges: Alliteration, meter, complete ridiculousness; what's not to love?

Some runners-up (although I must admit they were ALL quite good):

  • Julie's "Macaroni and Sleaze" (Don't give the ad execs at Kraft any ideas, Julie)
  • Rufus of Korrektiv's "Masturbation and Marmalade" (The contrast between depravity and wholesome berry goodness has a certain Korrektiv flair)
  • Christopher's "Bestiality and Bacon" (Catechist: "See, folks, we CONSUME the animals, like this fine bacon here..." )

OK, I think the contest and ensuring commentary just moved this website into PG-13 territory. We'll switch back into family friendly territory Monday. But I hope the contest made you laugh.

p.s. Julie, give me your website if you want the link. We have a few Julies around these parts!

Aww, gee thanks...:)

Julie said...

Yay! No need for a link; I'm currently between blogs, as it were. I will bask privately in the knowledge that I was the sleazy macaroni girl. Probably for the best.

Eve, Julie--just remember, an award you can be proud of....

If you mean the XXXChurch, yes, they are a tad unorthodox, but they do get some results. (Some porn stars have given up the industry and become Christians, and at least one pornographer has done the same.) For the long term results, we'll just have to wait and see. Let's pray for these people anyway. Atleast they're bringing the issue out into the open, so that people can confront it and get it out of their lives, with Christ's help.

P.S. I've been following your blog for some time now, and, I must say, your posts are excellent. I'll be praying for you and your family.

Thanks for the compliment, Innocent. And you're right, this is connected to the XXXChurch movement.

I am a bit late to the party, but how about a real life scenerio from our parish last year.

Feast on Fat Tuesday guilt.
-the Mardi Gras "party" was a series of guilt trips by the social justice crowd. After laying it on thick, they served the ice cream. As if we should just ignore the guilt and feast then.

How about...

Introduction to ejaculatory prayer

Sorry... Is that R-rated?
