Need a break from politics? Me too? Republicans, democrats, bleh. You know what this country really needs right now? More old school nuns armed with yardsticks! I bet that would straighten a few people out. Don’t believe me, just ask the demons in the following montage. (WARNING: gooey monster stuff near the end!)
I say give the Sisters 36 inches of cork-backed stainless steel straight edged justice and let’em loose in the halls of Congress. Whap, whap, whap! We’d have this country straightened out in no time flat.
Okay, okay, spare me the chastising. I’m well aware that the above is a cliché and that nuns throughout history, habited or not, have carried out some of the hardest and most thankless ministries the Church has had to offer, often with little thanks and rarely with rulers in their hands. So I’m not trying to perpetuate an old stereotype.
But, man, I’d love to see a congressman, any congressman, take a rap across the knuckles. Just once.
