Butt dust?

Here’s a particularly funny misspelling from a church bulletin or poster:

    I would be ever so worried if my butt passed dust 😂

    So, when they say “turn the other cheek,” does this butt dust have anything to so with it.

    I believe I have an allergy to that.

      If you don’t, I recommend getting one ASAP.

    Science says (and has overwhelming supportive evidence) that we are stardust, great-great-great-grandchildren of the Universe’s own birth, cousins to all that lives and has ever lived on Earth.

    Catholicism says (and we are to accept it on faith) that a magic man crafted H. s. sapiens for his own purposes by blowing on some dirt, and we bear no relation whatsoever to any other living thing.

    Yet it’s science that’s cold and alienating and meaningless, religion that binds everything together in harmony.

    Go figure.

    Cheers,

      “Remember, Man, that thou art stardust, and to the stars thou shalt return.” – Hmmm – could start a religion based on that.

        Yes, I really like that thought: thank you!

        It was quite a good movie, too. Stardust, I mean.

        Well, hey, Joni Mitchell’s song “Woodstock” almost did that.

        It has the virtue of being completely true.

      To paraphrase Carl Sagan, we are made of star-stuff….a way for the Cosmos to know itself.

      We too, are the product of R-process nucleosynthesis. Or at least the heavy metal essential micronutrients in us (molybdenum, for example) are.

    Funny!

    A colleague gave a talk on quality control many years ago. A letter was missing in the word “shift” that showed up quite a few times on his slides. When someone asked him if he noticed the letter “f” was missing, he burst into laughter. So did everyone else.

    So a fart is the big bang we keep hearing about but never smelt the connection.

      Christians call that Divine Afflatus.

      For Christians there is additional and sacred meaning to the big bang. It’s God himself who fired the mighty original blast. Ass Wednesday is their way of solemnly remembering. If that’s not enough to keep your ego in check, I couldn’t name what else would do better.

        Okay, this wins it. I don’t know what it wins but it wins it.

    To ancient bedouins ‘butt dust’ was a constant problem.

      We’re waiting for more details to come out, but the church is sitting on them at the moment.

    This meme has been going around non-humor-impaired Christian churches for at least 4 years.

    The stage comedy “The Complete Works of Shakespeare, Abridged” (about a stage company attempting to figure out how to abridge Shakespeare’s works) has a similar pun on the line in “Romeo and Juliet”
    “Call me but(t?) love and I’ll be new baptized”

    Reminds me of an old country tune:

    She has freckles on her
    butt she is nice

    No one else will lower the bar, so I will:

    It was Ass Wednesday, so what do you expect?

      Not to dump on you, but that was kind of crappy. 😛

    The Catholic Church is beyond redumption.

    Back when we had a bad drought year here, I’d tell this story to people: “I was out working in my garden the other day and went to the garage to put my tools away. I turned the corner of the garage and, to my horror, kicked a young skunk as I came around it who was right on the other side. He immediately stood on his front paws, threw his tail up over his back, and pointed his ‘business’ in my direction. I cringed and thought, ‘Now I’m going to find out what it’s liked to be sprayed by a skunk’. To my surprise, though, all that came out of his butt was a little puff of dust; it’s been REALLY DRY here….”

    Notice however the original is actually more or less a statement of materialism, at least at first glance. Someone who actually holds we have a spooky soul and a body can’t hold we are *just* dust (“but dust”).

      If only we were just dust. Dust is inoffensive.

      As far as I can make out, we’re mostly slime of one sort or another.
