"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

I think it might have been something I posted ...

It's the Christmas Jester.


Now I'm thinking the Followers app got cleaned out because of something I posted.

The Dusty Towne Holiday Special.  Just writing it cracks me up.  Catherine O'Hara's parody of a 1950's '60's bawdy, off-color, comedienne/entertainer is one of the funniest segments from SCTV archives.  It is ridiculous and silly.  I come across it once in a while and watch it - love her delivery and things like, "Isn't that cute, isn't that true?"  I'm not as fond of John Candy as Divine or Andrea Martin as a Solid Gold Dancer - but the dumb joke O'Hara does about Mrs. Dinky cracks me up.

My apologies to those who were offended - I removed the post.  You are better off for leaving.

That said - I laugh at weird stuff.  My humor is oftentimes very often inappropriate.  Another friend sent me an email concerning women and sexuality.  No offense - but that has never been something I know much about.  I know nothing about these things.  I know more now than I ever did - but like Donald Trump, I find it disgusting.  (He said that when commenting on Hilary excusing herself during the debate - as if she has incontinence problems.  He also inferred that when called out Megyn Kelly for 'blood coming out of her wherever'.)

I'm kidding that I am at all like Trump - women's personal hygiene doesn't concern or involve me, and I certainly would never belittle women for what is natural.  Trump is the disgusting one - he exploits women and uses them as trophies - that in itself is far more immoral than a Dusty Towne parody, but I digress. (Vote for him at your peril.)

I've said over and over on this blog that I know nothing about birth and babies - or 'birthing babies', nor women and female sexuality, nor lesbians or lesbianism, and so on.  (I know more now than I ever did before thanks to Oprah, Crescat, The Anchoress, and the left-over lesbians still at the Patheos Catholic Channel.  What?)

To be honest - my 'virginity' has remained intact because I was always afraid of sexual intimacy with women.  My crazy mother can take the credit for that.  Then of course, I was deeply devoted to the Blessed Virgin since a very early age and like St. Aloysius, I avoided looking at women until I was in Junior High - when I needed a beard.  (Kidding - kind of.)

So.  What can I say?

I took the Dusty Towne parody down.  Now go away.  LOL!

We love you family.

What?

  1. Dear Terry,

    Please do not be so hard on yourself. I enjoyed the Dusty Towne parody and actually shared it with a few friends who got a kick out of it. I will not surprised if I'm tossed into hell by some for having a good laugh all in good fun. Whatever ...

    That being said, I do hope you are enjoying these days of Christmas and preparing for the New Year. We are fortunate indeed to have been spared (so far anyway) of all the natural calamities that so many are currently suffering. Let's keep them close in prayer especially those who lost loved ones during these natural disasters.

    Be assured of my prayers always for the peace and love of Christ Jesus to reign in your heart and home. I ask of him the same for all your readers and their families.

    2. I received four of them and loved them all. Aside from the Morenita, I love San Junipero Serra. You are so talented and all for God's glory too. I am currently hoping to acquire your San Pasqual Baylon since I was sent the wrong icon. Hopefully it will all be corrected by Alexander. ^^

    3. Oh that's unfortunate - I hope it all gets straightened out. I haven't visited the shop since before Christmas - taking a friend back and forth to the doctor and now I'm a bit under the weather. They asked for more art - so I have a few things to bring in yet. Alexander will make sure you are well taken care of - I'm sure.

    6. Oh oh! I have another Madonna coming in - maybe she will be a good substitute?

    7. Well, kindly let me know dear Terry. Let's hope they can correct what happened. I am going to get the pieces I already have blessed then plan to arrange them close to the little altar I have in my room.
      Any snow yet? I keep reading about a snow storm in your neck of the woods. Please stay warm and take care of yourself especially if you're already under the weather.

  2. Terry - you are not a pious prune - and many of us are very grateful for that! As Catholics we enjoy a faith that is earthy and tactile as well as mystical and esoteric. I have read your blog for years and I would say you've touched on all those aspects. Catholic means 'universal' - and you embody that. Thank you. Angie

  3. I had a big laugh. I forgot about Dusty Townes. I do remember the Lola Heatherton special with Mother Therese. I laughed so hard I cried.

  4. The Indira Ghandi take on the Broadway musical Evita is my favorite sctv bit. When Slim Whitman made his appearance I can still remember falling off of the couch in histerics. I also love Bobby Bittman.

  6. Wow Terry, that post ran the gamut..apology, sarcasm, psycho-sexual pondering...politics and media analysis. Bravo!

    I wouldn't worry much on people who get offended easily. I notice a distinct lack of humor on a lot of the Catholic blogs, unless its mean spirited rants on lefties, homos, elites, Cafeteria Catholics (who is everyone but them..) effete bishops and cardinals, perves, feminists , marxists (really, is that a big problem in the world)...sometimes they are all rolled into one. But a little "earthy," humor and they scream like an 8 year old girl.

    As Edith Prickly would say, "Screw Em...HAHAHA!"...(My fave sketches are Edith in "Prickly Heat," and when Edith took her most demanding role, Annie Sullivan in "The Miracle Worker," .....after Helen throws her utensils on the floor, "Now how ya going to eat your entree???" ...though Brooke Shields singing "Beat It," is right up there.

  7. You put up a warning that it was raunchy and that priests, religious, etc. shouldn't watch. If people ignore warnings, well, that's too bad for them.

    1. Amen ... but we already know when a warning is given and the word raunchy is close by, well, it is just too irresistible to resist.
