This Is My Body, Eat…

posted by on September 17 at 7:42 AM


I trust this is some sort of fundraiser for Christ the King in Richland, Washington, and not the name of their youth pastor’s new youth group.

Hmmm...can't imagine it holds a candle to St. Benedict's Wallingford Wurst Fest which was enjoyed by many neighborhood folks, Cat'lick and non, this past weekend.

Seattle is a 24x7 sausage fest.

Unfortunate for some such as myself, who prefer chicken.

Mmmm.... Sausage. Nice meaty Christianist sausage. A little bland, but filling!

ZOMFG!! I am SO there. I love sausage!

That is the funniest sign I've ever seen.

Reminds me of my favorite Jesus quote: "This is my body, eat."

Don't forget the Everett Bavarian Sausage Fest. It's the must attend meat event of the year.

Today's Youth Pastor's may play the role that teenybopper idols did in the past:

I was actually in Richland this weekend and had to explain to my mother what was so funny about a Sausage Fest sponsored by a church.

Curses, if only I had my camera.

Damn, Andy, I'm stealing that for the headline. Hilarious--thanks!

Father, forgive them. They know not what they do.

i got my first HJ at Sausage Fest

Being from the midwest, my friends and I always thought it would be more appropriate to consecrate bratwurst and beer as the body and blood of Jesus. I'd probably still be attending mass if my old church did that.

And while we're at it, let's dump the organ for a proper accordion.

Wait, does this mean Christians believe sausages are sentient beings? I mean, they've given that lil' tube-steak opposable thumbs and everything!

So, aborting a microscopic collection of undifferentiated cells is murder, but eating a smiling sausage with eyes, mouth, arms and legs is perfectly okay?

Jubilation @ 1, the Wurst Fest used to be amazing, (back when I attended St. Ben's, and for many years after,) but in the last few years they have gotten rid of all of the carnie rides, and most of the good food stands that made it so great. Now it's full of inflatable castles and mediocre food offerings. Sad indeed.

doesn't the bible say not to eat pork? In the same chapter it says being gay is bad?

@3 - Sausage, bland? You've been munching on the wrong wieners!

i live in the tri-cities (kennewick) and what's best about it, it also has two beer gardens! gotta love those catholics!

Father O'Shaughnessy reading the announcements in the church bulletin: "There will be a peter-pulling contest at St. Taffy's... um... I mean a taffy-pulling contest at St. Peter's!"

Jesus Christ is a wiener.

Jesus Christ was the steak and Pontius Pilate was the sizzle.

And no, I don't feel like letting it go.
