Standing athwart history, yelling 'WTF'

That is certainly news to me, Anon, I didn’t know half of the 4,247 posts on this blog is softcore porn. You really must direct my attention to these posts asap, as I’m just dying to start my Monday with the scorching visages of elegantly restrained yet still raunchily posed young men.

(Really though, grow up. A shirtless guy in b&w is not porn. Otherwise every baroque church would be an occasion of sin.)

Gustave Moreau - Pietá; National Museum of Western Art, Tokyo, Japan; c.1876

I caught the final minutes of the 6pm Mass earlier and the clearly (very) homosexual priest suddenly launched into a 10minute spiel to hawk his latest book of prayers, unduly prolonging the Mass— and there I was, standing outside the chapel, caught in the rain, listening to this nasty, raspy-voiced queen praising himself, waiting for the next Mass to start along with hundreds of other people.

Seriously, what a bitch.
