Dear God,

Your followers crack me up.

Thank you,


August 25, 2008 – Priest to hold nun beauty pageant
An Italian priest says he is organising the world’s first beauty pageant for nuns to erase a stereotype of them as being old and dour.


August 26, 2008 – Priest cancels nun beauty contest
An Italian priest who said he wanted to hold the world’s first beauty contest for nuns has decided to cancel the project, saying he was misunderstood.


Oh, lord.

I have had the pleasure – and both occasions were a pleasure – of meeting two high ranking officials from the Vatican. What I learned in these experiences was a simple, fundamental lesson: Italian priests are still Italian men. For better and for worse.

Nun beauty contest indeed.  Would they *gasp* show their arms???



  1. OMG. I love it, love it, love it. You can’t make this stuff up.

    I also love your “Off to hell I go” tag.

  2. You WILL burn in hell for your sins, and your sins are legion…

  3. Ah, if only I believed in hell. ;-)

    Oh, except my sins against YOU really are legion. :-(
