"The Deep Mysteries of Theology" Jokes

Happy Catholic comes through again with two jokes.

And Jesus said unto them, "And who do you say that I am?"

They replied,

"You are the totaliter aliter, the vestigious trinitatum who speaks to us in the modality of Christo-monism.”

"You are he who heals our ambiguities and overcomes the split of angst and existential estrangement; you are he who speaks of the theonomous viewpoint of the analogia entis, the analogy of our being and the ground of all possibilities.”

"You are the impossible possibility who brings to us, your children of light and children of darkness, the overwhelming roughness’ in the midst of our fraught condition of estrangement and brokenness in the contiguity and existential anxieties of our ontological relationships.”

“You are my Oppressed One, my soul's shalom, the One who was, who is, and who shall be, who has never left us alone in the struggle, the event of liberation in the lives of the oppressed struggling for freedom, and whose blackness is both literal and symbolic.”

And Jesus replied, "Huh?"

And this one is for the motu propio crowd, via The Simpsons:

Homer: Bart, what the hell are you saying.
Lisa: That's Latin, dad, the language of Plutarch.
Homer: Mickey Mouse's dog!?

It's nice to know that we laugh at the same things!

Though Plutarch spoke Greek didn't he?
