Fundraising Idea for the Methoblogosphere

Well, since no one was really keen on my idea of a Methoblog swimsuit issue, I'd like to propose an alternative.

Recently, Travis Fessler of Florence, Kentucky broke a world record for holding the most number of Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches in his mouth: 11.

After observing a number of Methodist potlucks and that the UMC is growing as a measure of gross tonnage, I think that we can do better than eleven. And with the publicity, we can raise money for valuable causes, like the Second Life mission and some decent clothes for Gavin Richardson.

Praying that I NOT get selected. I hate hissing cockroaches.

Um, I move that we revisit the Swimsuit Issue. Do I have a second?

Ain't technology great? Gee, think: John Wesley and his crew never had the opportunity we do to converse across the entire connection about such vital issues for the good of the church!

I can't begin to describe how proud I am that my Bishop made this list!

the reverend mommy said...

I think I'll vote for the Bish.

Richard Hall said...

I think you deserve some sort of lifetime achievement award for a post as distubing as this one, John!

John said...

I appreciate the sentiment, Richard, but I would think that I have written posts far more disturbing than this one.

Richard Hall said...

Not to me, you haven't.

the reverend mommy said...

I assume that if we all meet at the Congress on Evangelism, you will be bringing the cockroaches, right?

John said...

No, because I think that few people could fit more than two or three Florida cockroaches in their mouths.

I've come across creatures known here in South Africa as "Parktown Prawns" that could pop a few Methodist Bloggers in THEIR mouths!
