7. Target Practice.

Kathleenie said...

Mold, Mildew, & Fungus.

But really, so many are so bad.

The Lakeland Two said...

Agree with Kathleenie:

Mold, Mildew & fungus...

And so many are so bad.

ferroid said...

Target practice.

DogMom said...

Target practice! Altho Mold, Mildew & Fungus was a close second...

pastorschuster said...

Having nominated it, I stand by #6,
'All God's Creation.'

Paul said...

You want us to go look up ten blog entries? No.

God created hyperlinks for a reason.

Robbie F. said...

My vote is a tie between 5 (BV Overload) and 7 (Target Practice).

Cathy J said...

Mold, Mildew Fungus, for sheer overwhelming ugliness. Then Target Practice: slightly less ugly, but what a theme!

Tory W. Sumrall said...

My top billing goes to Mold, Mildew, and Fungus out of sheer disgust - worn outside of the Eucharist, stole on top, ill fitting, color of a regurgitated veggie farm.

I previously thought the Oven Mitt (would you like fries with that)was worse by only the slimmest of margins. However, fearing Our Lady of Perpetual Litigation, I recant.

Cyrenian said...

BV Overload for sure.

Steve Salyards said...

All Classics - sometime maybe categories like "Now batting..." in synchronized or team bad vestments and "Bed, Bath and Beyond..." in worst use of off the shelf material.

But to only vote for one, as astounding as BV Overload is, I will still have to go for Mold, Mildew and Fungus.

Now Batting for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

Sarita said...

Would you like fries with that

FrKnowsBest said...

Definitely "Mold, Mildew and Fungus." Many of the others are bad, but that one is downright uuuuuuuuugly.

Damian said...

5. BV OVERLOAD – December 7, 2009

I SERIOUSLY had an acid trip when I saw that. Seriously, what the f*ck was he thinking?

pelerin said...

It's got to be Mould Mildew and Fungus although for me BV Overload comes a close second.

Anglican-at-heart said...

After applying some serious analytical evaluation (eeny meeny miney mo), #3 Mold, Mildew, and Fungus wins. #5 BV Overload is my runner up.

Italian Reader said...

I'd go for "Target Practice"... although "BV Overload" is terrible as well!

melanie said...

NOW BATTING FOR THE TAMPA BAY RAYS

Anthony S. "Tony" Layne said...

BV Overload — although all the candidates are worthy of disrespect, this one is truly hideous.

Jayna said...

Mold, Mildew, and Fungus takes the cake. Though the oven mitt is shudder-worthy.

Denita said...

TARGET Practice. That one made me laugh. Also, thanks for showing that picture of the papal tiara.

Galletta said...

Tie between BV Overload and Target Practice

I make my decision based on how much I threw up in my mouth. Mold, Mildew and Fungus made me never want to eat a tuna sandwich again!

OH MY! My first look at this sight. I gotta go with Mold, Mildew & Fungus. As someone who has made many sets of Vestments, I was petrified I might see one of mine here. Praise the Lord, I did not! Let me say this: it is so hard to keep the artistic needle from running wild with creative visions while designing these. I preach to myself all the time on "keeping it simple and subtle but with a little class". Hard to do for those who just love to express their visions in textiles. Love this sight and will always check out the vestments on here before I jump off and design a new one!

Mr Johnson:
You have just been quoted by RomeReports:

You know, "all roads lead to Rome" ;.)

Definitely #8!

1. WOULD YOU LIKE FRIES WITH THAT? – July 17, 2009

Mike S said...

#4 Now batting for the Tampa Bay Rays, which I still think is actually the worship service at U of Illinois alumni weekend.

Joy said...

MOLD, MILDEW AND FUNGUS – July 22, 2009

Hideous!!!

MOLD, MILDEW AND FUNGUS – July 22, 2009


I mean, the hippie yellow and the rainbow oven-mit-on-head are both heinous, but that one is just... i mean... really? Who would even make that and not cry?

4. NOW BATTING FOR THE TAMPA BAY RAYS… - July 30, 2009

The others were hideous; this one was that, and idolatrous, and audacious

Whatever happens Her Holiness Katharine will get the honors!

Lina said...

I'd have to say "Mold, Mildew and Fungus" because it's so completely ugly. Was awfully tempted to vote for "Truth in Advertising" though, because DANG is that funny.

Al said...

#1: Mold, Mildew & Fungus
#2: Bed Bath & Beyond
#3: Target Practice

The rest, dishonorable mention.

Anonymous said...

I've gotta go with BV Overload. It was really really really hard deciding between that and All God's Creation though.

Anonymous said...

so much ugliness, but Mold mildew and fungus made ne laugh, si that's my vote. Although- All God's creation is seriously BAD too!

Anonymous said...

Target Practice, with Truth in Advertising as a close second.

Peter Palladas said...

Just found this site. O joy of joys. Straight to heaven for you my son for bringing such mirth on earth.

Anonymous said...

Perhaps honourable mention could go to the chasuble that started it all.

Anonymous said...

"Mold, Mildew and Fungus" is truly ugly, so it gets my vote.

But I am still laughing at the tagline for "BV Overload." Banana Splits chaplain, indeed!

Heide said...

It's a toss-up between "Would You Like Fries With That?" and "BV Overload". The headline of the former is priceless; the sheer awfulness of the latter may put it over the top. I agree with Elephant's Child; it reminds me of goshawful 70's-era kitchen wallpaper. I guess I have to go with the latter, though I think maybe Bp. Schori deserves a special BV award for her consistent contributions.

Target practice; . . yeah, target practice!

Mold Mildew and Fungus!! Gastly at best!

Independent said...

O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. They are all dreadful. Vestments are meant to mean something, to imply doctrine, not to be an adjunct to popular entertainment.

Sibyl said...

How about dispensing with fine damasks and silks entirely?

Decently-habited is a blog devoted to proper Anglican vestments.

Mold, Mildew, and Fungus

It was a difficult calll, though.
