What is this world coming to?

I get a catalog from “Oriental Trading Company”. I remember this from years ago as a place you could find massive amounts of very cheap crafting supplies. Either that was a different catalog altogether, or it morphed into the current “way too many incredibly wasteful, insanely ugly, tiny foam things made of toxic chemicals in some Chinese sweatshop.”

But that’s not all! They recently sent me their Easter-themed “Inspirations: A Celebration of Faith” issue.

Nothing says “I love God” than

  1. Cross-shaped lollipops
  2. 4 1/2 inch plush bears wearing “He Lives!” t-shirts
  3. Foam and rhinestone cross ornament kits
  4. “Smile! Jesus Loves You!” rubber punch balls
  5. Lamb of God gummy candies

    Those are priceless. I was giggling by the plush bears but the punch balls (punching bag, yes?) had me belly laughing.

    Can’t you just see it? “Fr Johnny” comes home from a hard day at the office and needs to take his frustrations out on something. Instead of praying for guidance he turns to his inspirational punching balls…

    Maybe not so funny but it did make me laugh.

    Gee, I wonder what Jesus in the temple would have said?! I did a double-take when I read the punch balls – “Smile! Jesus Loves You!” Punch, punch, punch.
