lamarca BS: Jesus Sport Statues (12) RE: BS: Jesus Sport Statues 30 Apr 02


This all reminds me of the scene in "Hannah and Her Sisters" where Woodie Allen is considering converting to Catholicism and goes to a NY "Christian Supply Store". The camera pans around to show you the gruesome graphic crucifixes, Divine Bleeding Hearts of Christ, statues where Jesus' eyes follow you around the room, etc. I just about died laughing when Allen brought home an assortment of this junk and a jar of Miracle Whip - I was raised Catholic, and Miracle Whip was and is an important luncheon food item... What does Miracle Whip have to do with Catholicism (maybe its name's link to the Scourging before the Crucufixion?)

I'm trying to get my boss, who is giving a talk in Prague this week, to bring me back a medal or icon of St. Vitus (yes, the one of "the dance"), who, among other responsibilities, is the Patron Saint of Oversleeping.
