Cupcakes for Jesus

So endeth a week of short posts. The church fête is this weekend, so we’re baking Cupcakes for Jesus tonight.

We bring cupcakes by tradition (Uncle B does the actual baking, and I assist by washing things and fetching things and reading him the recipe wrong). By tradition, we finish them at two in the morning, rather the worse for strong drink. And, also by tradition, I chuck way too much red food coloring into the frosting, turning the end result a toxic pink that adults won’t touch.

This year, it looks like we’ll be finishing fairly sober and not long after midnight — so yay! I still spilled too much coloring in the frosting, though. Tradition!

Good weekend, all.

I don’t care if it rains or freezes
Cause we’re makin’ cupcakes for Jesus
And drinkin’ homebrew from a jar…

I was rather shocked that many Christians in the USA actually worship Jesus … which violates a whole heap of the 10 Commandments …

American Christianity is really for the Loons!

Oh, at least twelve of the Commandments, O.

Actually, there were 20, but Charlton Heston dropped a slab coming down the mountain.

Must be a British cupcake. Do you need me to send you a proper American cupcake pan with paper inserts, S. Weasel? These look like the teacakes my grandmother used to make – delicious.

Cookies and jokes about His Son won’t seem so pleasant/funny in the Fiery Lake.
From what the nuns told me, that place is noisier than AliceH’s ‘hood.

Hey, Scube – ‘spose we can get JFK and Teresa to whip us up a few batches of those Despicable Me cupcakes. Seems to me this is just what we’d need to make those bad old Al Qaeda’s and their minions love us better. Besides, if Jack is going to just keep making an ass of himself, the least we could have is a few cupcakes for the efforts.

Apparently, He already has:
Jesus Christ: In the Name of the Gun
I don’t know whether it qualifies as blasphemous or “The Good News.”
