back to article Nuns face off in online beauty contest

Father Jack would dribble into his drink - a rather open-minded Italian priest is running a beauty contest for nuns. The pageant, which is the brainchild of Father Antonio Rungi of Mondragone near Naples, is intended to challenge the stereotype of the nun as plain at best and grotesque at worst. According to the Times, Father …

    Oh yeah. Well, there's more than one kind of dribble.

  8. lansalot

    money to be made ?

    I say we bring in a ringer - let's get, say, some tidy page-3 sort in a nuns outfit, stick a great wodge on at William Hill and then retire to the bahamas. Who's with me ?

    In fact, Sarah, how about we go in on this together, split the profits 50/50 ? I'm sure you'd look very fetching in a nun's outfit, based upon nothing at all as I have no idea what you look like.

    This plan is guaranteed* not to fail !

    Actually, I don't think that was "hatred" so much as it was "sheer bed-wetting terror". It's not so much that nuns are "wizened" or "funereal" as it is that they are "inhumanely cruel and sadistic" - just ask anyone brought up in an Irish convent school.

    You may also remember "The penguin" from the Blues Brothers who was an absolute devil for the rapping-the-knuckles-with-a-metre-rule trick. If a nun can intimidate a hardened jailbird like Jake Blues, they must be evil!

    Cruel and sadistic nuns - mmmm, sign me up for a spanking. Mine's the bum on fire...

    Now I'm wondering if I'm going to go to hell because I'm thinking of some uber hot babe wearing a habit?

    I mean this is a serious dilemma I'm struggling with! The soft curves of an attractive woman... who is married to God...

    Bahh humbug - it's all mind control anyway.

    The adam and eve story was circulating in the middle east for centuries before the jews ever invented themselves.

    When the jews did invent themselves, they ripped off the Code of Khammurubi - the kingdom of Bablylon's laws - and used them basically verbatim as the first 6 books of the old testament.

    They also ripped off the copyright by saying these are their gods laws, instead of a rewrite of the kings laws...

    Then jesus who never existed, and if he had of, he wasn't a christian, he would have been a jew practicing jewish law... well they didn't believe in him back then and I don't either..

    And then we get this bullshit cult called christianity, which is a spin off of a major lie - called judaeisim, where the main protagonists say if you do have sex, your less holy and worthy of a god that doesn't exits, and if you don't have sex, then you are more holy and worthy of a god that we invented and still doesn't exist.

    And it's all crap.

    The best bit is the reaction of the members of these cults, who say "If you dare to blashpheme against our god, who is a loving and just god, then WE will kill you - in his name, because we think we should be punishing you for this act against our god".

    Note: Their god never appears to do his own dirty work... ahem.

    I rest my case.
