I chuckle at these, but feel guilty in the process!

Actually, Hyperdox Herman is the stereotypical 'convert' in the minds of many 'cradles.' I find it reassuring that most of the posters here poking fun at poor Herman appear to be converts. All too often when we are in one 'grouping' or another in life, we find it easy to lump 'others' with a stereotype rather than get to know that person and understand them more fully.

If anyone wants to come up with a " 'Cradled' Mary or John", give it a whirl. I suspect there is more for all us to learn through a bit of self-effacing humor!

I'm fifty-eight years old, I grew up in the northeast USA and I don't get the reference. I never saw anything that would evoke this image relative to a feast day - maybe at a picnic with a polka band but that isn't related to the expression of religion - but I agree the image doesn't make sense. Although the cigarette reference is spot on - esp. years ago. I remember my father stopping the Paschal blessing of food of all things on the Church lawn until the smokers and chatters dispersed! That was in 1962!

Ok, I gotcha.  The picture is kind of fugazi, it's the cigarette thing that I understand.  I say feast day, because half of them (and by half I mean 95%) aren't there any other days and as soon as the service is over half of those run out as fast as they can and light up.  My brother still jokes about it from a Russian church we went to once or twice when we were younger.  I've noticed the same thing at the Serbian Church.

This Hyperdox Herman guy is quite a character. He reminds me of a certain fisherman that lived about 2,000 years ago who was often zealous to a fault. Some might call him "Presumptuous Peter;" but we call him "Saint Peter".  Wink 

(I now await to see how someone will creatively use this post in their next "Hyperdox Herman" picture.)

Some of the jokes are a little odd, but I like the idea.

The unadulterated wine one is my favourite.

A few people believe that "Sulfites" are a masonic innovation first begun by the California vineyards after a bilderburg conference was held nearby, not naturally occuring chemical reaction.
 Wink Cheesy

Thanks, I had never heard that. Even bottles of wine from Greece say that there may be some natural sulfites present.

However, a priest did say that using raisins and making your own altar wine/wine for consumption after communion can prevent allergic reactions to those allergic to bee venom. Sometimes a honey bee or yellow jacket wasp is accidentally crushed and processed in the winery.

And the venom actually persists through fermenting and everything... Kinda hard to believe that.
