Our service is at 7:30 tonight. So you won't see me with a smudge.

I always forget what that's supposed to mean, no matter how many times I re-teach myself, and so I've just given up on it and invented my own mythology around the practice in which Jesus' body is burned after the cross and he actually rises as a phoenix on the third day, and it's to commemorate this rebirth from his own ashes that Catholics rub ash on their own foreheads.

Rises as the Phoenix?

Jesus is an X-Man?!

But, Jesus didn't tell his followers to do this....

#ashtag Everybody else gets the perfect cross, I end up with the huge smudge that looks like I work in a tire store

#ashtag You better get you one or you girlfriend might give you up for Lent

#ashtag It's also Catholic Dating Day, Makes it easy to tell all the REALLY available guys and girls that your mom would approve of for you to bring home

I like to have fun by considering how Christianity would be different if the Romans used different execution methods. Imagine if Jesus had been hung, or launched from a catapult.

What are YOU giving up for Lent????

"Do not wear your religion on your sleeve, your forehead is a much better place for it."

Pretty sure that's how that bible verse went, right?

That's actually just a slightly more colorful version of the story they believe.

Somewhere, there's a redneck looking at that photo, going, "Aha! It's...it's...it's spreading! Ah knowed it! Pretty soon that there white man's gonna completely change color, kinda like a ree-verse Michael Jackson sorta deal. Ma! Fetch me mah shootin' ahrn! We's gonna take our country back!"

I hate this frigging day. Back when I was a young fellow, I woke up with morning wood, and started poking the wife with it to see if I could get her interested. She rolled over and gave me a sweet smile and said "now baby, you know that today is
Ash Wednesday, a day of fast and abstinence........

/ Then I got the lecture on taking the Lord's name in vain (would you honestly want to bring God's damn down upon anybody?)
//Been calling the day cockblock Wednesday ever since.

Mass at the Cathedral isn't until noon for me.

Going at noon.

I'll make sure to say a prayer for you guys.

God bless you.

I thought the day of abstinence was every day after the honeymoon.

So either Joe Biden's Catholic, or he stubbed out a cigarette on his forehead because a couple of coeds from Jacksonville State said they didn't think he'd go through with it.

Don't forget to leave your wallet in the basket. Because God!

This headline is probably meant to be a joke, but it's all too real for me. Here's the conversation I had with a girl (who I was very smitten with) in college:

Me: "Hey, you've got something on your forehead."
Her: "It's Ash Wednesday."
Me: "Oh." <pause> "But there's something on your forehead."
Her: <blank stare>

Fortunately she thought it was cute and things worked out, but my lord, I felt about an inch tall.
 
2014-03-05 11:34:17 AM
Despite being warned about this yesterday and again today, I'm still going to be shocked the first time I see a person with ash on their forehead.

/hold still, lemme wipe that off before you embarrass yourself
//what am I giving up for what?? Why?

Of course I'll give a donation - then me and the Mrs. will go out and have a fish sandwich, probably drop by the local Lowes to look at wallpaper for the hallway, then go home and relax.

Meanwhile, you'll be sucking some guy off in a restroom at the local Citgo for a stamp bag, his buddy will come in and he'll make you suck him off to, then you'll go look for someplace to shoot up when some cop will stop you because of the piss stain you have running down the front of your pants, and you'll spend the rest of the night down at the station on a procession charge.

Guess we both have a full day ahead of us.

Not sure what you mean.

Are you one of those people who laughs at the stupid stuff other people believe and then correct them that they are believing the stupid stuff all wrong?

I think Jesus said something very similar to the whore in Luke 7:36-50.

Went as a teen to church with a friend. Just knew we were going to an odd middle of the week Lutheran service. Everyone went to the front starting from the front pews to the back, and we were in one of the very back rows. Suddenly all of these old people were coming towards us with big black smudges on their foreheads. I was in my early teens, befuddled and completely creeped out. Had seen "Phantasm" just prior to that and for some reason "something on the forehead" and the old guy yelling "BOYYYYY!" melded together in my head.

In before the ever so clever "I'm giving up religion for Lent"

/not religious in the first place
//maybe I'll give up drinking anyway. Good for the weight loss program...
