Forgive Me, Father For I Have Grinned
Religious gaffes are served up in a family-friendly style in this riotous collection of bona fide stories and puns related to traditions of worship. Amusing anecdotes of comical church incidents are featured, as are examples of Christians who have been given the boot for poorly chosen words uttered in front of their congregations. A section on cemeteries looks at bizarre, witty, and often brazenly frank tombstone inscriptions such as "He was so cold natured / Warm in life he was not. / Now it is believed he's very warm, / In a place where it's very hot!"—and, if possible, the people and stories behind them.
