ACTION ITEM! Help the Nuns on the Bus!

Over at Fishwrap (aka National Schismatic Reporter) there is a project to help the Nuns on the Bus rename their hagiographical movie/documentary!

I can’t think of a better project for readers here.  After all, we have done so little to help the Nuns, especially after their diligent promotion of Obamacare!

Have you notice how quiet Sr. Simone Campbell has been since the “AFFORDABLE”Care Act has revealed its true colors to the American public?  It passed and now people are learning what’s in it.  Where’s she been?!?  She should be taking victory laps.  Right?

Back to the ACTION ITEM!

Some of the suggestions in their combox, over there at NSR, include:

  • Sisters of Eve-l
  • Nunsense.
  • Bad habits and loose canons.
  • A Habit of Irrelevance.
  • And then there were Nun.

That last one has potential.

Check it out.  There is also a VIDEO to get those creative juices flowing!

  2. ghp95134 says:

    Well, it can’t be “March of the Penguins” because (1) that’s already taken, and (2) they don’t wear habits.

    “Sisters of Anarchy” (Their habit can be leather MC vests over their pant suit jacket)
    “The Sisters of Schism”
    “The Sisters of Perpetual Schism”
    “The Sisters of Heresy”
    “The Poor Sisters of Confusion”

  6. Heather F says:

    Okay, my vote is for Sonshine135’s “I married Him so I could fix Him.” That is brilliant!

    If you click thru the links to the actual sisters’ film / suggestion website, you will see a note “Thank you for helping us create a soulful, spirited, rockin’ title!’

    These poor people are really, really in need of prayers….

    Years ago I read a most amusing book called “1066 and all That” (a pocket history of England!!!).
    There is a section called “Warwick the Kingmaker” with an ‘application form’ for anyone wanting to become King and one question reads:-
    Name of mother……..(if nun, write none!)
    I’ve never forgotten it!
    By the way the Earl of Warwick was known as “Warwick the Kingmaker” because he truly had a hand in that business.

  19. NoraLee9 says:

    I am just floored. The readers have outdone themselves. “Then there were nun,” and “I married Him so I could fix Him,” get my votes. I am still on the floor, laughing and crying.

    There are nun so blind…

    ‘Sisters Axed’?

  23. HyacinthClare says:

    I totally agree with NoraLee9. The imagination and intelligence of the comments on this thread are worthy of Fr. Z. You all are SO GOOD! If the devil is a proud sprite who cannot endure to be mocked, this website must be an awful misery to him.

  24. HyacinthClare says:

    I think my vote goes to unavoceman. At “Do Dah” I entirely lost it.

  25. OrthodoxChick says:

    What-da-ya mean they need a title for their movie? I heard it’s being released in theaters this weekend nationwide. It’s called “American Hustle”.

  26. DonMiguel says:

    The Devil Wears Pantsuits

  27. Fr. Hamilton says:

    How about these titles…

    Fast & Furious

    Roman Canonball Run

    Prayer Shawl-shank Redemption

    The Birdcage

    Rosary Chain-Saw Massacre

    The Departed

    – NUN BuS

    -Buckle Up Sister

    -The Logic on the Bus Goes Round and Round.

    Truthfully, the most appropriate theme song for the documentary would have to be Weird Al Yankovic’s “Another One Rides the Bus”. In fact he sang it on his very first TV appearance in 1981 on Tom Snyder’s show. Yes. Weird Al is a prophet…and why not, now that Duck Dynasty is the voice of Christian Conscience? Check it out:

    “It’s called “American Hustle””
    ..Or better yet, how about “American Hustle in Bustles”?

    I notice that the moderators there at the Reporter have closed off comments. I gather they didn’t care much for some of the input.
