Even Mexican Jesus blesses short sleeves and tie.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

Bottom image? Better? Are you being facetious? It doesn't even go with the color. Let's forget the silliness of the outfit. But he looks like a model, so I am guessing this is an advertisement or from a fashion magazine. I like some of the weird stuff, just like I like some abstract art, but this is just....no....

The left missionary made a bad choice, but the right one's is good.

No, it's just as bad.  I don't think Mormon missionaries care much about style, so NBD.

And the model or whatever guy's tie is complementary to the shirt and pants.  Even by itself, the tie is nice.  Not so with the Mormons' ties, seemingly stolen from my dead real estate agent grandfather's attic.

You guys ruin everything with that menswear crap.
This is a great day for this forum and for the internet. Mor's energies like a burning comet are raining possibilities for enlightenment upon us all.

Everyone wants Mor.

Mor is sad that he can't get any closer to Charlize or Rachel due to his style and computer screen.  It's OK to be alone.


Besides, being a pet peeve thread, finding something to get annoyed about is perfectly on point.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Pet peeves:

Short sleeve dress shirts, especially with a tie

Pet Peeve - rechambering a Class III Uzi to .22 LR.  In 9mm it was such a fun gun to shoot.
Pet peeve II - me not being able to afford a Class III Uzi because arbitrary laws.

You can build a semi-auto version from parts and an 80% kit for under $1000.  It will also scare the neighbors just as easily as the 9mm version.

Not that I'd know anything about that... all I need to scare anyone is my beard and cassock.

I feel sorry for priests that wear a cassock out in public and have long beards, people around you probably think you're so holy and they are not worthy to approach you.

Whereas many American clergy just wear an undershirt under their cassocks, I learned from the Romanians to wear a dress shirt and decent pants under mine.  When I'm done ministering, I take off the cassock and hang it in my car.  So, I wouldn't say I'm in it 24/7.

However, when I walk into hospitals, it is like the Dark Angel of Death has arrived...

I have a Sterling for my 9mm firing semi-auto.  I do want an SMG some day, though.  Probably after I win a lottery or something.

World Orthodoxy = Universal Jurisdiction!

As opposed to 'Closet Orthodoxy' I suppose?

My nearest 7-11 has the best fountain Coke ever, just the perfect mixture of carbonated water and syrup.

The worst are those Coke Freestyle machines that have 100s of flavors that come from a single soda gun dispenser. So you don't really get straight up Coke or Sprite or Barqs or whatever, you get the residue from whatever 5 people before you got. It's disgusting.

So yeah, if I want Burger King, I stop somewhere else beforehand to get a fountain drink then order my meal at BK. I ain't having any of that Freestyle nastiness. Or any place that has Freestyle.

Movie theaters have them now, so I have to sneak in a can or bottle of soda.

Right, I want my Barqs to contain the unadulterated residue of 1000's of Barqs drinkers before me. Seriously, would you be able to taste the difference?

I think drinking a lot of wine makes you detect the subtle flaws more. It makes you tongue more sensitive.

I got a Mellow Yellow from a Freestyle machine, and it had Vanilla Coke, Raspberry and grape, yuck.

Atleast with Mellow Yellow its ok if there are other citrus flavors since it would get disguised, and if I got a Coke it makes whatever someone else got more noticeable. Coke doesn't taste like a Coke.
