    The Friday clergy team are all welcome to a Plaice at my table!

  2. Charivari Rob says:

    They’re the initiation nicknames of frat brothers at the only known on-campus fraternity at a seminary: Alpha-Omega House.

    What?! No Sole?

  4. acardnal says:

    Looks like it was saved according to the report.

  5. Huber says:

    Oh, the Italian Cardinal Calamari, head of the Pontifical Commission for Maritime Snacks

  6. Elizabeth D says:

    The Canons Regular of Stella Maris.

  7. John Grammaticus says:

    its good to know that Cpt Haddock went on to Holy Orders after all that time running around with Tintin and Calculus. Although I wonder if he ever managed to work ten thousand thundering typhoons into a sermon :)

  8. Mamma B says:

    Fr. Calamari must be from Italy.

  9. hwriggles4 says:

    Where are the Southern men? Fr. Catfish Hunter (wasn’t he a former pro baseball pitcher) and Fr. Crawfish Boiler?

    Clearly, the “Wholy” priest fetches the high price.

  12. Grant M says:

    Is Fr Haddock any relation to the retired sea captain who lives at Marlinspike (or Moulinsart)?

  13. Semper Gumby says:

    My guess is that Fr. Fish Stick is away blessing the tartar sauce.

  14. Absit invidia says:

    And next month’s menu will feature the much anticipated Fr. Whole Mackerel.

    Catholic Navy Chaplin known as “COM MACK SNAPPERS”

  16. Fr. Kelly says:

    Fr. Chx Tender? One of these things is not like the others …

  17. aquinasadmirer says:

    Are these Friars?

  18. Pnkn says:

    Fr. Clam’s a woodworker, of course…..

    and at the State Fair … I’m imagining a tent offering Confession with – Fr. Snickers.

  19. Cafea Fruor says:

    Well, rumor has it that Frs. Whole Clam and Clam Strips are, well, pretty shellfish. But that’s just judgemental to say that, if you ask me.

  20. Grant M says:

    So if Fr Haddock *is* Captain Haddock, I fear he will be the original whisky priest (Loch Lommond preferred) unless Calculus’s pills are still working.

    On the other hand I imagine his 17th century chateau contains a beautifully appointed baroque chapel. Anyone who suggests wreckovating it receives the treatment he gave the slave trader in the Red Sea.
