That is pretty stinking excellent.
Wonk wonk… :)
From one mike to another… stinking brilliant!!
This is hilarious. My mom has described to me one of her favorite hymns when she was a kid. It is called “Surely the cross I’d bear.”
But, of course, when learning the lyrics by rote, mom just assumed the song was about a cross-eyed bear named Shirley.
Haha! Tim (I mean Tim’s mom) wins.
Ours was Gladly, the Cross-Eyed Bear.
@Diana, yes that’s the version I’d heard also.
Lol! Whenever the radio announcer was reading obituaries, I heard “Massive Christian Burial” instead of “Mass of Christian Burial.”
Thanks for all the laughs, and all the cross bears!!
FACT: One of the meanings for the word “awful” can be “full of awe; reverential”, although this meaning fell out of common usage about 80 years ago…
FACT: The word “gay” used to mean “happy”, rather than “homosexual”.
FACT: In the early 20th century, Canadian hymnals actually included a hymn entitled, “God Is Awful, He Made Me Gay!”
True story… :)
I REALLY REALLY hope this is true! :-D
