Reading this thread made me sorry that I never maintained a quotes file of my own - I've often laughed aloud at many Ship discussions.

This quote is "ancient" but so hilarious that I've never forgotten. It was on a thread in Mystery Worship about vestments, where someone asked the use for a maniple.

Joan the Dwarf replied that it was "to flick the crumbs away while saying, 'if Jesus can get in, then he can get out.'"

I also well recall dyfrig's telling a heated Ship mate "I think Erin is an insane bitch, but I shall happily watch while she eats you."

Firenze, replying to a post (Teenage Embarrassment, Heaven) about Duck's mother placing a condom on a bicycle pump:


quote:
How can I break it to you? This doesn't stop babies.

Unless, of course, it is some sort of primitive marital aid. When I were a lad, we didn't have no Ann Summers shops doing they crotchless panties and vibrating thingies. We 'ad to make do with a pound of tripe and a bicycle pump.

[Killing me]

I must say, reading through this thread (and so wishing I'd kept a file!), of those immortalised here the absolute best has to be Duo Seraphim's retort about how Martin's posts shall be revealed as a code regarding a secret of Fatima. But I also shall remember 'quod fuxi, fuxi' till my dying day.

Though I prefer to stay with Ship quotes, since the last two were not, I'll feel free to insert a 'non Ship' one (though it might not have the full impact for the young members as it would for those of my generation.)

This from a friend from Kerry (and uttered completely seriously) :

A year or so ago, one Ship mate (troll) was rambling a good deal, justifying everything on the basis of that he'd been a Roman priest, worked in the Vatican's congregation for the doctrine of the faith, then left to pursue this, this, and this...

I'm not positive, but I think it was Ian who made this response that made me fall off my chair. When said troll rambled, a bit incoherently, about a doctrine he'd misunderstood (or words to that effect), Ian responded: "It is a shame you did not ask Cardinal Ratzinger about that when you were still working at the Vatican."

This is as nice a synopsis of the human condition as I'v eseen in a long time-- from Lyda Rose--
quote:
I think various things happen to people who were scapegoats or scapegoaters in childhood. Some get the "I'm a goat" sign stuck on their back, and unhappily figure that that's life, while some scapegoaters figure putting people down in a great life strategy and live boring, rotten little lives. Others grow up to stick a sign on the front of their shirts that says, "I'm a goat. Fuck you boring sheep." Some of the scapegoaters grow up to think, "Hell. I can't believe I wasted my time on the sheep." I tend to look for people of these two positions now that I've socialized myself out of being goat or scapegoater. And as many of us have, I've been both to a certain degree.

Back again. This one from Presleyterian, in Hell:

quote:
Because if someone professes to believe in the incarnation, crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, you pretty much ought to accept them as brothers and sisters in Christ and leave the actual act of discerning and judging their faith to God.
Damn, that's good.

--------------------
Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief. Do justly, now. Love mercy, now. Walk humbly, now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.

On the Heaven thread about books, there were two delicious comments related to James Joyce's Ulysses.

In response to Angelica's question of "is there any point to Ulysses at all?," I loved Dubitante's

Any point to 'Ulysses'? Of course, it's to show off about when you're an English undergraduate. "You know, I so get that book..."

Better still, when Karl mentioned "Ulysses, which is like reading a Swahili phone book for all the sense I can make of it," I laughed aloud at Steve R's "That's quite unfair to the Swahili phone book."

I agree with Kelly that Pyx_e's comment about fruit and nuts was a gem!

The thread in Heaven about books is just too delightful... And this exchange is certainly worthy of preservation for posterity.

Rainbow Kate:
D.H. Lawrence and James Joyce both seem so utterly wrapped up in their own sexually repressed narcissism that I wanted to vomit. They'd both have been better off getting laid more often and writing a damn sight less.

Wouldn't we all?

From the Heaven thread on Marriage and Babies,
posted by Always Waiting:


Ah, the shelf. It has hovered in front of me for some years now. Not so much immediately threatening as looming in the not-so-distant future, like a very large mountain at the end of a long, flat road. I can see it coming. It seems to be aiming for me.

My only consolation is that, by the sounds of it, there are several of us up there, so we can have a few drinks and a good time, and end up throwing things off the shelf onto the heads of the couples on the dance floor below us.

On the Doctor Who thread in Heaven, from Callan:

-----------------

Honestly, he's supposed to be an enigmatic wanderer in space and time who fights evil, not a taxi service for amoral narcissists.

From the demons thread, by Jerry Boam, regarding people who misclassify epilepsy as demon possession:

quote:
In terms that such persons might understand: you are afflicted by a spirit of stupidity and a spirit of cruelty. Go look in the mirror and rebuke what you see.



--------------------
Er, this is what I've been up to (book).
Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down!
