9780060950231: What's So Funny About Being Catholic?: An Uproarious Collection of Blasphemous Facts, Unholy Jokes, Irreverent Folklore, and More

From Lent to parochial school to Notre Dame (the cathedral and the football team), Warner lampoons 2,000 years of Catholic tradition, poking fun at holiday rituals and religious customs, and teasing the church's familiar cast of characters--from parish priests to popes and saints. Illustrations.

From Booklist:

The best part of this book is the collection of old and new Catholic jokes sprinkled among the anecdotes. They poke gentle fun and make outrageous puns on the sacraments, the pope, saints, nuns, priests, and ordinary Catholics. Some jokes will be remembered by older Catholics; others will provide a fresh laugh. The rest of the book is primarily a compendium of stories from people who grew up Catholic. These take the form of short, choppy anecdotes that are loosely grouped around topics and that at times seem determined to remember the worst about grade school or the sacraments without the softening perspectives of affection and humor. Even so, the book will provide a nostalgia trip for Catholics with a strong sense of humor, and a sense of relief to former Catholics who feel lucky to have escaped with their lives. Mary Deeley
