Vegetables.

Is there anything they can't do?

Josephus, "You know when you're an Ortho-geek when..." :)

Anon, One of the kids at a monastery I visit asked a nun why some of them left the services and came back so often. The nun said, "We have a blessing to leave when we have to toot." Probably no such blessing in a men's monastery. :)

Barfy's expression is priceless! You can just tell he thinks Curmudgeophan is someone he must put up with very piously.

"We have a blessing to leave when we have to toot."

LOL! LOL! LOL!

Lent, Lent, it's good for your heart. The more you fast the more you fart!

Toot, I always thought E.O. to be non-instrumental.

JD, if the human body is the "instrument" it is technically still acapella. All good c of C'ers know that. :)

Of course not. Men are proud of it.

Anon 4:14, ...and ANOTHER good reason for men to stand on one side of the Church and women on the other. :)

OK, this one's going on the 'fridge.

Curmudgeon, he puts the
"mona" in "monastic"
Young novice annoys him
Too enthusiastic

He's talking, lips flapping
Calm now begins to fray
His heart more crust than Christian
Brings on Dies Irae

(Is there a significance to the 4th tone?)
