I‘m going to have to go to confession to this one, but I was much intrigued by something Doug Ross’ said. After ironically noting that he had "sinned" against Randy Ewart, he announced that "As penance, I shall say 10 Hail Mary Rosh’s."
Well, that got me to thinking. If I decide I need to amend my new civility policy, that might be a suitable punishment for transgressors that would fall short of deletion or banishment. Say, if someone who uses his or her full name goes a bit too far in exercising the license that identification allows, we could assign 10 Mary Roshes as a penance, after which blogsolution would be granted.
As a serious Catholic myself, I’m not sure how awful it is to be publishing this. But the fact is, my brain started working on it right away at Doug "The Serpent" Ross’ prompting, and I did "entertain" the thought. So I suppose that sharing it here is my way of confessing to you, my brothers and sisters, that I have sinned through my own fault, through what I have done, and what I have failed to do (my work). If my fellow Catholics out there think it’s just too awful (maybe somebody should run this by Andrew Sullivan), I’ll take it down.
Anyway, here is how I think one would say a "Hail Mary Rosh:"
Hail Mary, full of Rosh, the bile is with thee;
angry art thou among women (?),
and worthless is the fruit of thy rant, Venom.
Pseudo Mary, mother of trolls,
prey on us retards now,
and call us garbage with thy breath,
