Two pictures of the fateful "fake" bulletin: (there were more pages but I didn't have time to take pictures of them before it was STOLEN from me) Ugh I wish I hadn't put "welfy" on there. Or ANY name. I am retarded.

I think it's really funny but I can see how some stuffy people might take offense to it... :(

That's really cute.

I really don't see anything that would make anyone super angry.

Meh, someone super stuffy might get mad, but I don't think it's firing material. I'd be very surprised if they let you go over this.

That said, i think it's hilarious.

I think it's hilarious, but then I'm a Methodist.

Maybe going to the people in charge and fessing up so that they hear it from you first and can put it in perspective (it was a joke for your Mom; who doesn't like Moms?) will soften the impact?

That is so hilarious! Thanks for posting it.

I think the only line that might really get you in trouble is the "Welfy hates the phone, so she probably won't include your stupid announcements anyway."

I would like to RSVP for the Polka Party.

Ha ha that's great! I'd actually go there!

Unfortunately most of the people I know 'round these parts would promptly gasp "Blasphemy!" with their last pre-coronary breath. Which incidentally explains why I don't go to church anymore...

My mom actually BROUGHT IT to the church WE go to, and they thought it was a riot. But Presbyterians seem to have a good sense of humor about things, at least in this area!

Yeah...which would be a lie anyway, because I post everyone's announcements no matter what it is. This entire thing was extremely exagerrated. I always answer the phone, too!

I worry about the line on one of the not-photographed pages that says, "There will be a love offering (if you know what I mean)"...

BTW I once did something eerily similar: I wrote "The Gospel According to Rezek" in honor of our favorite drunk bowling high school teacher. It quickly achieved notoriety... assisted in no doubt by my leaving a copy in another teacher's class! (Fortunately he had a great sense of humor about it, and from the sly look Mr. Rezek gave me the next day, so did he). Ahhh, those were the days!

Oh man...

I'd prepare for the worst. That part about the tithes is *not* going to go over well. :/

Yeah. But, that and the brick thing are the funniest parts!

Maybe, this is going to get you a promotion! "We need more humor in our hymmnal. Punch it up a bit." Welcome to famousland, welfy.

Well, then, you shouldn't have anything to worry about.. As long as you're doing your job!

I think the woman who took the newsletter out of the office is more in the wrong. It's really none of her business, unless she's your boss or something.

Haha! Family of giants made me laugh out loud. If this gets you fired at least you'll have a great story in a few years. I truly don't think it will. It isn't as if you've poked fun at anyone at the church personally or anything... just yourself.

oh man, welfy, you are a comic genius.

if they get mad, they just take themselves too seriously.

The thing is, this isn't poking fun at this particular church. ALL churches have their members pay tithes.

That's better than the youth announcement where I cheerfully wrote that the youth were meeting to bash in mailboxes for those who don't pay tithe. :^\

I think it's totally cute, but... well, if anyone should ask, tell them the truth: You had a little free time on your hands and was playing around with format and stuff like that. You didn't put it up as a way to hurt anyone in the church and if they really don't like it, tell them you won't do it again.

Personally, if they are going to let you go over something like this, then they don't deserve you. just sayin.

I know, but any institution likes to believe that they're either the only one - or at least the best. I bet they feel you're not being a good Christian. :P

Is there a possibility that she could have taken it to show to other people because she thought it was so funny?

I think you'll be all right.

She's not my boss. But her husband is the head trustee, and is the person in charge of me. So this kind of worries me.

I could see if I had left porn or something blatantly offensive out, but I haven't! It was something for my mom and myself, not her! AND I used a bulletin that had a painting with the year 2000 on it, so it was a bulletin that would have had to get tossed anyway.

The only thing I could REALLY be criticized for would be that I am being silly instead of working. But for the most part, I am not THAT silly, especially if other people are around. I do ALL my work and even more than I really have to. I've had weekends I had to sacrifice because of the church's mistakes and I had to help fix them even if I had nothing to do with it. I'm just so annoyed right now.

I agree. What was she doing going through your stuff? She's got some splainin' to do.

i think it's wonderful.

hopefully theyhave a sense of humor about themselves. or a spry bird flew in the window & took yr bulletin to line it's nest.
