i'll give you one corned beef dinner for a night of safe sex
Bishops Bend Rules for St. Patrick's Day, Yahoo News, March 15, 2006
Michael O'Leary doesn't need to choose between sinning and nibbling this St. Patrick's Day. O'Leary will enjoy his corned beef on Friday with a clear conscience — thanks to a special dispensation from another Irish-American, Archbishop Timothy Dolan of Milwaukee.
Dolan is among dozens of bishops — from Green Bay, Wis., to Arlington, Va., to Chicago to Boston — granting one-day dispensations from Lenten rules that prohibit Roman Catholics from eating meat on Fridays to observe the sacrifice of Jesus Christ....
Wow! A day when we Catholics get to break the rules! This is too cool. The bummer is that I don’t eat meat. So I don’t get anything out of this special dispensation. Darn. I wonder if they’d let me trade this St. Patty’s Day dispensation for a different dispensation.
Hmmm. Well, I don’t really like the whole “no birth control” rule. So how about this trade: I’ll give you one St. Patrick’s Day corned beef dinner for a guilt-free night of safe sex with the hubby. Seems like a fair offer.
So, who do I write to get this approved?
