You Stay Classy, Catholic Church

You have to hand it to the Catholic Church, because they really know how to keep things tasteful. At least they do, with the help of Mel Gibson. MG is considering recreating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ in the streets of Sydney, if-- wait for it!-- IF the city is selected as the venue for the Church's World Youth Day in 2008. Read that again: Mel Gibson may be given the opportunity to do his infamous The Passion of the Christ, as a fucking parade.


It's really quite wonderful, if you think about it. This will give good old Melly Mel the chance to truly confront guilt-ridden Catholics with grotesque scenes of torture, unlike ever before. You know, get in their faces with it, because let's be honest: The Passion was totally holding back. It's going to be great if, thanks to our little Giblet, the residents of Sidney can prove their piety by getting splattered with holy prop blood. Hey, maybe they'll even throw in a complementary poncho to keep stray bits of the body of Christ off people's sweater sets. We can't wait for the irreverent souvenirs that'll say things like "I went to the crucifixion of the Savior, and all I got was this lousy t-shirt!"
