Father Elvis

Father O’Mally has been preaching at his church in Ireland for so long, that he decides to take a holiday to America.

 He hops on the plane bound for Nevada. He arrives in the Airport in Las Vegas. As he is exiting the plane, someone in the airport runs up to him and exclaims, “Elvis! Oh my God! It’s Elvis! I knew you weren’t dead Elvis! How have you been?”

 Father looks at her and says, “No, no, no! Can’t you see I’m not Elvis? I don’t look a thing like Elvis.”

 The father moves on to his cab waiting outside. He hops in the taxi  and he’s a little upset so he tells the cabby, “Take me to my hotel and step on it.”

  The cabby turns and says, “Sure thing sir – Oh my God! It’s Elvis! I knew you weren’t dead! I’m your number one fan! It’s so great to see you!”

 “Don’t be ridiculous.” says the father “I’m not Elvis! Now turn around and drive!”

 So, the cabby speeds up to the hotel. Father O’Malley gets his things and walks up to the hotel check-in counter.

 “Oh my God! Oh my God! It’s you!” screams the hotel clerk. “You’re back Elvis! I knew this day would happen.

 We saved everything just the way you like it! Free cheeseburgers, peanut butter and banana fried sandwiches, masseurs, complementary hookers and a full liquor bar! I’m so glad you’re back!”

Father O’Malley looks at the hotel clerk and says, “Thank you…Thank you very much!

 He then breaks into song ‘Well, since my baby left me, I found a new place to dwell. It’s down at the end of lonely street At heartbreak hotel. NOT!”

The Meenister’s Log
E L James: Fifty Shades of Grey

A UK hotel has replaced in-room copies of the Bible with the bestselling erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey.

All 40 rooms at the Lake District’s Damson Dene Hotel now contain a copy of EL James’s bestseller in place of the Gideon Bible, USA Today reports.

The hotel’s owner Jonathan Denby detailed the reasoning behind his decision in a blog post.

“Tonight millions of women will be curling up in bed with a good book and you can bet your life it won’t be the Bible,” Denby wrote. “More likely than not it will be Fifty Shades of Grey.

“I haven’t read the book yet – I’m not in the target audience – but I’m told it’s a ripping good yarn and everyone who’s in the target audience loves it.

“This made me wonder about the sense of providing a book, the Gideon Bible, which no-one reads and many dislike, in the bedside cabinet of our hotel bedrooms, instead of a book which everyone wants to read, such as Fifty Shades of Grey.”

Denby has insisted that the decision was not an ideological one, but a local vicar has publicly decried the swap and dubbed it “a gimmick”.



my niece Erika who lives in Wheaton, Illinois* wrote on FB –

I find it pretty funny that in Wheaton (über religious city that it is), the public library has 18 copies of Fifty Shades of Grey and 542 people on the waiting list.
(* Wheaton has forty-five churches located within city limits and an additional thirty places of worship in the outlying  areas, representing nearly forty religious denominations.  The Genus Edition of Trivial Pursuit states that Wheaton has “more churches per capita than any other town in America”)
