I am please to say I have Mary's iPod, Mary's foot massager, Mary's hula hoop and Joseph's broken condom. No reasonable offer rejected (Only Catholics may apply.)

Did she use that belt to whip Jesus into shape?  God does not like it when parents spare the rod (belt).
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

Ew, all those lips touching that.  Who would want to put their lips on something that hundreds of thousands of icky, germy lips have slobbered on?

I can't believe I ever drank wine from the same cup as everyone else at mass.

I always passed on the wine.  Kind of gross using the same cup.  They thought they were cute wiping it with a rag.  That always gets rid of germs.

Oh ye of little faith.  I knew the common cold virus had no chance against the powers of the holy spirit.  0.o

What do you suppose would happen if we combined Jesus's foreskin with Marry's belt?

I could ask the same question about Ron Jeremy's dick.
