Let's play a game!

Time for another round of our favourite game...

Liturgical Dance Chicken.

The location is "Mary, Mother of Jesus Catholic Community House Church," a warm, inclusive nursing home Catholic Community that welcomes women who feel called to sacerdotal ministry,

and wafting about in tiaras,

in Florida.

But wait, there's more!

Take your positions...




(Contestants please record their times in the commbox.)

Plus a bonus, just-for-fun, video of our all-time fave,

Worst Procession EVER.

Seriously that's how you find it on Youtube. Those are the search words.

(No points, since we've all seen it already.)

Time: 0:35 seconds of the first round (top video), before I felt the gorge rising to the point I had to click the pause button. I should have known better than to try to watch.

Pax et bonum,

Well, I dared you, so, you know...

The first one does have elements of tension: will anyone realize that the woman in the back in green is dead? Is the fella in the shorts and loud shirt dead, too? And then he moves and the question becomes: will he play the bugle that he brought along?

Videos 2 & 3: Zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

The fourth one is just frustrating. Why can't he follow the rubrics? Everyone knows it's FIRST do the hokey-pokey and THEN turn yourself around. But this guy goes directly to the turn yourself around without EVER doing the hokey-pokey. One despairs.

I watched the first one - was that Cathy Shaidle?
I only watched a wee bit of the next two - Carey Landry gives me hives.
The last one - I watched it all but was so hoping he was going to turn around once and fall over.

Not a good way to start my day.

I think we need to consider the possibility that the elderly (including those unable to vote with their feet ) have been abandoned by tradition while we crow that "the TLM has so many YOUG people!"

I'm finding more elderly being told, "Communion in the hand or no Communion for you!"

Paulinus said...

White guys really can't dance. The priest and all the other 'processors' need to watch a James Brown or Marvin Gaye video if they want to learn how to do the moves. Or Napoleon Dynamite.

The point about the elderly is a good one. How miserable it must be to be pushed around and bullied by these harridans when all you want is the sacraments.

Paulinus said...

..and another thing.

I am the only person who sees these things and thinks:
"You put your right arm in, your right arm out, your right arm in and you shake it all about..."

Maureen said...

Wow that was horrid! All good examples why they are closing RC churches. RC churches that put on this sort of thing should be closed. Those "dancers" should really find a good dance teacher and also go on a diet. Really bad news.

I tend to think this takes the cake as far as worst procession ever:
