You Can't Get Born Again - But We Can Get You a Beer

Post by porfirio » Fri Dec 19, 2008 1:49 pm

This note is from the folks who bring the Twistine Chapel to the Playa every year. Sorry, no virgins here, but I am a newbie as a registered user. So that's worth posting an introduction I guess.
The Chapel includes art, a couple of popes, assorted clergy an' Jaysus an' all that stuff. Sacraments too. (The Blood of Christ tastes strangely like Mondavi merlot even though we transubstantiated the shit out of it.)
If we have a point of view our website (badcatholics.org) pretty much covers it.
Pope John
Dominus Vobiscum an' all that stuff

I thought it tasted like single malt.
But that was many years ago.

Oh please, pretty please, can we do a latin mass? I know all the words by heart.

In princípio erat Verbum, et Verbum erat apud Deum, et Deus erat Verbum. Hoc erat in princípio apud Deum. Ómnia per ipsum facta sunt, et sine ipso factum est nihil quod factum est. In ipso vita erat, et vita erat lux hóminum, et lux in ténebris lucet, et ténebræ eam non comprehendérunt. Fuit homo missus a Deo, cui nomen erat Joánnes. Hic venit in testimónium, ut testimónium perhibéret de lúmine, ut omnes créderent per illum. Non erat ille lux, sed ut testimónium perhibéret de lúmine. Erat lux vera quæ illúminat omnem hóminem veniéntem in hunc mundum. In mundo erat, et mundus per ipsum factus est, et mundus eum non cognóvit. In própria venit, et sui eum non recepérunt; quotquot autem recepérunt eum, dedit eis potestátem fílios Dei fíeri; his qui credunt in nómine ejus, qui non ex sanguínibus, neque ex voluntáte carnis, neque ex voluntáte viri, sed ex Deo nati sunt. (Hic genuflectitur.) Et verbum caro factum est, et habitávit in nobis: et vídimus glóriam ejus, glóriam quasi Unigéniti a Patre, plenum grátiæ et veritátis.

I would love to participate. Just don't rap my knuckles with a ruler.

I always have Jeebus art up for adoption at the Home for Wayward Art! You'll need to wander by and acquire a piece. Hot Jesus lives in Salt Lake now, with two very lovely gentlemen.

You're right goathead - it was good scotch and it was at least six years ago. We'll bring some more this coming year. Looking forward to your beer.

Christ on a crutch, as we used to say at Holy Names Academy - what a great lump of Latin. Most impressive. A little old " et cum spiritu tuo" would have been fine with me.
You can have a Latin mass at the Chapel if you want, but you'll have to say it yourself. Bring scotch.

Yup - sure will. It's one of our most popular features. Should mention we only simulate cum with some hand lotion. Hope that doesn't disappoint anybody. You know how folks can be after a week on the Playa.

AntiM - I was at Sonic off of South Temple?? by the airport in August of 2002. A bum (skinny and less kempt) walks up to the window and orders 6 (six) large chocolate shakes. He then introduces himself as "Ringo Starr" - the original. (not to be confused with the replacement that the Beatles were famous with.

He spent 30 minutes telling us about how he got screwed and drank all 6 of those shakes. What a screwball.

That same day we went to the LDS temple and were sitting on the edge of the fountain. I told my buddy to walk across it since it was hot and he was complaining - so he gets up, hops in the knee deep water and enters the spray of water ( hundreds of nozzles spraying straight up 10-12 feet) He exits the other side crawling and gasping for breath.

He thought he was going to drown standing up and couldnt see anything, so just dropped and started crawling. Happy times in SLC.

Reminds me of that John Cusack scene in the diner.
Didn't he order six shakes too?

The Italian mother of my grade-school buddy used to say that what the priest was REALLY saying was, "All you wops get off the grass!" :lol:
