I Am Funny, Dang-it

Claire laughed AT me today...no, not with me...AT me.

We met up to go for a 530am run. We are beginning the long road of training for Disney's Goofy Challenge in January (1/2 marathon on Saturday and 1 full one on Sunday...same weekend.)

She mentioned that our pastor was swapping churches this weekend and he would have to preach in robes. Pastor Hank is certainly not a robe guy, he is a jeans and polo preacher, so the thought of him preaching in formal robes was unusual.

This reminded me of one of my favorite jokes from the Catholic High School I attended...quick mental picture...priest, walking into mass with his full robes on, swinging the incense burner...got that picture in your head?

Good.

Now, if we were sitting there an I tapped you and whispered:

"Nice dress, but his purse is on fire."

Would you laugh?

Not only laugh, but if you said that while I was in mid-sip of the Communion wine, I'd have had a full on spit take!

Hell yah I'd laugh!

I'd shake my head and then threaten to kick your ass if you didn't get me a cupcake (ATKINS) but I'd laugh!

I would laugh. And I did laugh! Very funny!!

And I am so jealous you are doing the Disney Marathon. I so want to do that! The only thing stopping me is the marathon part. Ha!! But one of these days... Next year I am going to do the walk at Disneyland in September. And then we'll see. But I will do at least the 1/2 marathon at Disneyland before I die.

Because his purse is the incense burner!

Reminds me of a joke my Dad always told us whenever they had incense and did the mass in Latin. We'd ask, "Daddy, what is he saying?" (My Dad can speak Latin) and he'd say, "Bless the Father, Bless the Holy Ghost... This incense pot is too damn hot!"

His other favorite joke would be that the priest was cooking pancakes in the pot for Breakfast (when we were really little!)

Yes, I'd laugh hysterically!

The Bogie has it here. Laugh out loud funny (when did that last get typed out online, grin).

So two cannibals are sitting around eating a clown...

One looks up at the other and asks...

"Does this taste funny to you?"

((crying laughing))

Ok, Where Was I? said...

I would so laugh. But then I'm a recovering Catholic and get all that stuff. Still, it's funny. Very impressed with the double marathon.

I think you are funny...

Mary Alice said...

Ummm yes! That's funny. And my church is the full on robe wearing type of church.

Amy said...

I am laughing with you. Perhaps if you were the one swinging the purse, I would be laughing at you!!! lol

LvL said...

I would totally laugh. But then I laugh way more than is appropriate in church already.

Now I'm trying to think of ways I can modify that so it works in the Methodist church.

Becky said...

Reminds me of a favorite movie of mine...Keeping the Faith! ;)

You are funny...and I did laugh.

:) The Maid

They don't allow smoke or flames in my church...we aren't holy enough for that...people might want to light up a doobie. LOL

Back in the early sixties I was an alterboy ... Being a short person ... I could never find a Cassock short enough to wear and more than a few times I tripped over it during mass. Yep ... I spilled the wine.

I have a little something for Bogart at PracticallyWisdom.com ...

Bogie, Life can never be taken too seriously, even during Church services. You made me laugh!
