I think they only serve franks. Can't you see the dancing hot dog, followed by the bun, followed by a blue...spoon?

I can't help but notice that there are at least half a dozen priests wearing the exact same garb. Are these perhaps the color of a particular order or seminary?

Therese Z said...

Oh no, these must be their SPECIAL OCCASION VESTMENTS, in the dozens, so everybody can look like morons together.

Us Catlicks have big piles of the same vestments, too, for diocesan events at the cathedral, and I'm sure some are as ugly, so I'm not backpatting here.

Actually that's the Dorchester Gas Tank on Rt 93.

I know that gas tank real well.

Swineheard, yes. That is Bishop Lahey from the Antigonish Diocese in Nova Scotia. The picture has a double wammy effect on me.

Dear Therese Z,

I think this is the vestment set for the 2002 World Youth Day. It's been some time and my photos are nowhere near me.

When the Dorchester gas tank (actually, the neighbor twin of this replica) was painted in 1971, some people thought the "Rainbow Swash" had a profile of Ho Chi Minh in blue. Sort of marxist-leninist atheist vestments then.

If that's "World Youth", I'm glad I'm old...

The Dorchester Tanks are a Corita Kent design. She provided the aesthetic backdrop for the folk Mass phase of US Catholicism. http://www.notkeren.com/web/artists/sistercoritakent/corita3.jpg
