Holy St. Cecilia!
Church lady drag-ball fashions from Downton Abbey?
Yeah, I'm just the janitor -
I do the clean up work, that's all.
Just doin' my job!
For more photos of just how bad the presentation was, go here.
BTW: The figure I tied into Downton Abbey is more probably Dolly Levi from "Hello Dolly". Could it be more gay? I don't think so.

"Some mannequins that are part of the show were toppled over,
and several others tossed outside on the steps of the church,
the Rev. Michael Gutgsell said."
"tossed outside on the steps of the church"
I am laughing so hard!
I came across even more photos and this:
Show will go on...
The Cathedral Flower Festival will go on as planned this weekend, despite some damage caused during an incident about 8:15 Friday morning, the church’s pastor said.
Some mannequins that are part of the show were toppled over, and several others tossed outside on the steps of the church, the Rev. Michael Gutgsell said.
Omaha police were contacted and a member of the cathedral maintenance staff was taken away by officers, Gutgsell said.
The man offered no explanation, Gutgsell said. (That's not true.)
The flowers, he said, were virtually untouched. The displays will be repaired for the show to open as planned. - Source
I was laughing so hard. Fr. Gutgsell's letter to Mr. Kenney was weird:
In a letter of termination two days after the festival incident, Gutgsell wrote to Kenney: “None of the florists and none of the volunteers, any number of whom took time off their work or traveled some distance, had the slightest intention or reason to dishonor the Cathedral. You assigned the word ‘desecration’ to the entire project and as a result slandered anyone associated with it.” - Source
If only Christopher Guest would do a film based on this story.
