Printing this onto coffee mugs might be an excellent way to spread Orthodoxy and have some fun too.
On the down side, there might be some coffee sprayed all over computers.

Of course, some of these LOLs might not please most Orthodox Bishops, but they would sell at most Greek Festivals, if the priests approve.

Reminds me of the first Orthodox priest I've ever contacted with. I said that I've considered becoming a member of the Church and he asked me whether I have considered becoming a priest or a monk.

wonders why everyone else always gets there 30 minutes before him
