A Gift to Remember

We have a wedding coming up in the family, which brings us to that endeared tradition of registering for gifts that most people can't afford to buy for couples they barely know. So in light of the fact that I need to re-register (can't you do that after 35 years?) and my pots and pans have seen better days (read: my family has eaten all the non-stick coating and are all going to die), I want to be gifted this pan. It doesn't matter that I'm not the one getting married. It would make the holiest of food. Children would never misbehave at the table if Jesus was embedded in their French Toast now, would they?

And whackin' somebody up the side of the head with it would seem so fruitful.

C'mon Kathy, it's what's on the inside that counts.

Annie K said...

Yes, your children would be full of Jesus.

I totally thought of MY no-longer-nonstick and now just toxic pans too! I like the idea of reregistering.

And I MUST get that pan.

I can just see the autopsy.

"It appears under initial inspection that the cause of death was due to blunt force trauma."

"What is that"

"It look like some kind of impression. We need to take a cast of it and see if it leads us to the murder weapon."

*time passes*

"The cast is ready and you won't believe it."

"The wound looks like Jesus."

"What?"

"The impression we took looks just like Jesus."

"I think you need some time off you are seeing things."

"Look for yourself."

"Holy Homicide, it is Jesus."

This may look like it reads as a joke, but I am being serious for a minute. As a Catholic, I believe in transubstantiation, meaning I believe when I receive Holy Communion, I am receiving Jesus. The Jesus imprint pan would't phase me at all. If I can eat his actual body, why not French Toast with his face imprinted on it?

♥ Kathy said...

Ok, Helen has a good point lol I just think the way I am, I would save that piece of French toast until it turned into a brick or somethin..

Helen that is hilarious, even if you were serious- sorry.

I for one, prefer to have Jesus in my heart, NOT in my belly.

I'm just old school, I guess.

Matt has this same pic on his blog today.

Holy communion, regardless of whether or not you believe in transubstantiation, for me, isn't the same as eating a piece of french toast embedded with a picture of Jesus. That's just weird...

But if I were to hit someone upside the head with a frying pan, why not witness to them at the same time? (win-win)

This could be an effective tool in my "come to Jesus meetings" with my kids. If the words don't sink in, a smack to the head with cast iron surely would ;)

Lest ye forget the 11th Commandment:

Thou shalt not eat Jesus.

<-SB><

sherri said...

Marni- you are so right!

Where were these Jesus pans when MY sons were growning up?

Wendy said...

Huh, now that's weird... I got a pan just like that a while ago and around the same time, Jesus started showing up on my food. I thought it was His way of saying, "Wendy, do you really need to eat that?" What? Don't you all have Jesus as your dieting buddy?

Stacey said...

LOL, I love how you get TWO Jesus pans. Like one just isn't enough...

Candace Jean July 16 said...

I didn't even notice that, Stacey! I'll order the, keep one, and my new registry has begun!

@Wendy, yes, this would indeed make Jesus your accountability partner when going for that second grilled Velveeta sandwich. But remember, those sell pretty well on eBay.

Helen said...

Candy, I do believe you have just solved our country's economic crisis. We all need to buy these pans, make lots of grilled cheese sandwiches, and sell them overseas! You are brillliant!

Candace Jean July 16 said...

S'pose it would work with a black bean or chickpea burger? Trying to stay healthy, ya know. We could market them as Helen's Healthy and Holy Hummus.

Annie K said...

Gives communion a whole new name.

Helen said...

I don't know...I keep hearing Burt Ward's voice saying "Holy Hummus, Batman!", and it just doesn't work. I think we are going to have to stick with cheese. Burt Ward never talked about cheese on camera....
