Caption Contest #23

Source.

Caption away in the midrash box.

UPDATE! We have three winners among the great selections this time around....

From Jennifer: Evidence of the little-known alternative text to the Pauline epistle, which adds that those who do not run as if to win the race, but merely participate in the 'fun run', can still hope to earn a commemorative t-shirt.

From Beez: They divided the price tags among them and for the T-Shirt, which was without seam, they cast lots.
(p.s. Beez' profile says he is discerning a vocation to the priesthood and is from my old college town, so applaud his win and say a few prayers for him too. Beez, did you go to UMW?)

From Joel of Crummy Church Signs: How many times can YOU bench-press the sins of the world?

Back soon--I.C.

Many know Him as their Lord and Savior, but have you met Coach Jesus?

Ray from MN said...

Not just unlimited, but Infinetely All-Powerful!

Required wear for those Bible-thumpin, verse-hoppin, dance around the meaning types that play loose with the context.

Wear it when you compete in the holy triathalon: the 40-day fast, the walk-on-water, and the cross-carrying relay (in which you tak up your teammate's cross, apparently)!
Wear it to sporting events, to show off whose number one fan you really are!
Wear it while sitting on the couch and watching your favorite religious program at two in the morning, as you mindlessly consume half of a 2lb bag of chips!
Just Wear It! (or else no one will know you're a Christian!)

Allen said...

Um... take up. Sorry.

Great so far...
extra pts to the person who incorporates in a faithful way the clearance sale price (see two tags on it...one white, one orange?)

The challenge escalates....

Notre Dame's quarterback has unexpectedly been resolved. Apparently, the new guy is quite the miracle worker.

Indulge yourself! Get an unlimited number of minutes of intercessory prayers. The regular price is two Our Fathers and a Glory Be. But, if you phone today, you will get the prayers (without limit) PLUS this commemorative t-shirt all for just a Hail Mary. Phone 1-800-PRAY4ME to reserve your shirt today!

Ray from MN said...

Tag 1: Needs no cleaning!

Tag 2: Will not shrink with wear!

If He is for us, who could be against us? Now let's get out there and pummel the other team!

Foreign garment manufacturers relied too heavily on that free internet translation software -- it had seemed like just the thing for all those jubilant bloggers predicting the new pope would help the church "shape up".

(Apparently conservative catholics prefer diet to exercise -- those "cafeteria is closed" t-shirts sold so much better.)

IC -

To answer your question above, alas no. I went to VCU undergrad and University of Denver grad. I only live in F-burg because of my job.

Thanks for the prayers AND the fun site. (I hope my discernment isn't the reason I was a winner. ;) )

The Ironic Catholic said...

Nah, Beez, it isn't the reason you were a winner. I just thought it was funny and was looking to see if you had a link on your profile....and voila!

beez said...

IC -

Well, thank you for your generous laugh. The Spirit sometimes moves me.

Watch my profile, because it may be changing to "entering seminary in August" soon.
