Jokes on my godfather
« on: October 16, 2012, 11:23:52 PM »
I am playing some jokes at the office on him because he is passionate about politics, so we have a hat and stuff for opposing candidates. I don't want to go too far over the top.

I have plans for him to be called Don (his name), and for friends to indirectly make references to The Godfather, but I don't know what else I can do. I was thinking of a not too bloody picture of a horses head delivered by a waiter/waitress under his plate when a group of us goes to lunch afterwards.  Thoughts on this? Other ideas?

Oh no, not a bloody horse head.

Political joke, but not the above.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

Make sure you leave an empty chair open next to him when you go to lunch.

Or invite Mitt Romney for the biggest joke of all.

So a printout of a horse's head is a bad idea?

Actually, we are getting Obama stuff.  ;D

Empty chair? Is that in the first movie?  It's been years and I am in the process of re-watching them.  What's the context/meaning?

You missed the Clint Eastwood stunt at the GOP convention this year I take it.

Ok, cause I searched and I found something on a page that mentioned about the start of the second Godfather movie where there was an empty chair for a don. I looked up Clint Eastwood since I saw him but did not remember what he did and found out that he talked to a chair like the president was sitting there.

Someone on another site is suggesting telling him that I am gay.

That would be a terrible joke.

You could have everyone start circling him and yelling "Awful Waffle! Awful Waffle!" No one wants to get an awful waffle, especially in public.

It's a conservative Catholic site.

What are you doing at a heterodox site? ::)

I do not remember having a godfather party just before my baptism.
We did have a celebration afterwards in the church.

Originally, finding my way to Orthodoxy. :)

There is a baptism an hour after my chrismation. I'm not sure there is a celebration at the church??? I was just planning on having a little fun with a friend/godfather afterwards with my other friends there too.  The current jokes are just office stuff.
