Mah belly button
AB: What good is a belly button without lent, my father always used to say.  
 
And then we'd give him his medications again.
Catholicism.
Hugh2d2: But really I gave that up 20 years ago. Now I'm an apathetic agnostic. I go to the Church of Meh.
Did anyone else see the first option as
crataegus: fisting?
Dyskolos: Did you go to Catholic school, too?
Oh lent....
MrsBot: The time of ashy foreheads, guilt squared, and the hope of a solid chocolate bunny instead of a hollow one in the easter basket.  
 
I remember writing papers in grade school about what we were giving up for lent and what significance it had for us personally.  
 
Being about 15 years removed from really participating in any Catholicism, the religion is taking on the fuzzy quality of a dream that came across like a LSD vision where I wake up and go "Wow. That was some weird shit."
FoolProof: OMG. Must stock up on solid chocolate rabbits.
Something else....
clu: Posting links about Bobby Jindal to LF.
========================================
Max Webster: Belief in god?
FoolProof: ZING! Take THAT, God!
Overheard somewhere
badbunny: my wife gave up sex for lent. its palm sunday everyday for me.
FoolProof: HA! 10.
ZOMG
vinfille: Give up pimento cheese sammiches? What kind of crazy repressive religion to you belong to?  
 
It's good to be Whiskeypalian. We just give up the soda in the whiskey-n-soda.
Dyskolos: Whiskeypalians are good folks...with their 3 commandments and 7 suggestions.  
 
I agree, the fanaticism of a cult that would deny a person the basic necessary sustenance derived from the manna that is pimento cheese is twisted and depraved...and a grave threat to our cherished civilization...exile them to Pocatello, I say.  
 
Respect our heritage! Or get off my lawn!
Something else:
aardvocate: TV and DVDs at home.  
 
Hey, look, first real answer. Wooties.
FoolProof: Good on you, sir.
