saints

If you listen to this song in the beginning it sounds like they just of crammed some words in there that didn’t really fit.  Whatever.  You will remember the song etc. etc. but the important part of this is that I got a list of Patron Saints to go with the post.  Being Catholic rules.  Sure you can criticize us for sheltering pedophiles, selling indulgences and causing the Dark Ages but it isn’t like you are all moving out of America because of what we did to the Indians (or the Japanese during WW2 for that matter) and last I checked Penn State was still in business.  So stop generalizing you hypocrites.

A couple notes:

  1. I am not condoning the sheltering of pedophiles.  Unless by sheltering you mean dropping giant boulders on them so they don’t get wet in which case I am.
  2. Why the hell is St. Elmo the patron saint of Women in Labor instead of the patron saint of FIRE?
  3. There is a patron saint of earaches.  Does that mean he watches over and protects earaches?  If so then screw you, St. Polycarp.  You make babies (and this dude I work with) cry.  Seriously he is a grown man and always has ear infections.  Stupid St. Polycarp.
  4. When there aren’t anymore blacksmiths (or, to put in another way: any time now) what will the patron saint of blacksmiths do?  Will they switch him to like, iPhones?
  5. Back to the video for one sec: why do I always get surprised when I see a black British person?  Does that make me racist or them?  And while we are on the subject, how come there are no Japanese midgets?  Or maybe I should clarify to say famous Japanese midgets?

I really hope I get ranked in Google for Japanese midgets.
