This month a hilarious post won out. Congratulations, Mor Ephrem.

That's good. I've always imagined Mor as a bodybuilder.

LOL.  Far from it, but thanks.  Tongue 

True story.  When I was in college, I lived with a few guys, and one of their friends would swing by often.  He was the son of an Italian father and a Chinese mother (so he had a distinctive appearance), and he was a hardcore bodybuilding type (perhaps he used steroids, I don't know for sure like I did for the others), a great student, and the most lapsed SSPXer you ever met (he never even once entered a "modern" RC church until I broke the news to him that there was Mass in English...he did so only to prove to me that the Catholic Church "would never do something so stupid", and then came back horrified).  Quite a combination...a great guy.  Anyway, one day he interrupted my studying to ask me "Didn't St Paul say that our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit?"  And I replied affirmatively.  So then he grabbed a bit of my belly fat and proclaimed "God doesn't want a chapel...", and then ripping off his shirt and flexing his very muscular muscles, he bellowed "HE WANTS A CATHEDRAL!!!"

Axios! Axios! Axios!

Axios!  You were also Axios enough to have this post also in the oc.net quotable quotes.  (That's like winning a Soapy and an Emmy  Cool)....and one more Axios for being the first post to be an oc.net quotable quote and PoM (as far as I'm aware)

No, this is not information that we choose to keep private. Thanks for asking, though.
