Just in case you didn’t you didn’t realize it, yesterday was April Fools’ Day.
About a month ago, Joe Heschmeyer sent out an email to a number of Catholic bloggers inviting us to do something a little different for April Fools’ Day this year. Rather than doing the typical “fake news story”, he suggested we do some kind of satirical analysis:
…[the] Catholic issues that maybe have crossed your mind, but you think, “This is much too stupid to write a blog post about.” It treads the fine line between the serious and the absurd.
I had shared with Joe my theories on He-Man, Christian Allegory and Transubstantiation when we got to hang out last November. It seemed to perfectly fit the criterion of “too stupid to write a blog post about” 🙂
Anyway, just in case you missed them, here are some of the other April Fools’ Day offerings out there:
Shameless Popery: How the Summa might address Zombie Uprising
The Thin Veil: “Pope To Blogosphere”
St. Joseph’s Vanguard: “The New Perspective on Peter”
Almost Not Catholic: I Relent!
Young, Evangelical and Catholic: Pope Excommunicates All Of Us!
