Pranks At Church

One time I was on an airplane and the old man sitting next to me started telling me about the church, but because I was raised in the church and already knew what he was talking about, I decided to mess with him a little.

So I told him my name was Mick Jagger and that I wrote sinister rock and roll music with the sole intent of encouraging young people to fornicate.

Oh man, you should have seen that old guy's face!

I don't know how old you are but Saturday Night Live used to do these quotes by Jack Handy. Your stuff sometimes reminds me of them. What a crack up you are.

Baahahahaha!

Alan said...

Ah, this sounds suspiciously familiar. Gene Cook of the 70 says he met Mick Jagger on a plane and that Jagger said all this same stuff. Is this just amazing coincidence or did I discover your source?

susana said...

you were probably talking to my dad. LOL

Matsby said...

I think you may be on to something, Brother Alan.

Homer and Queen said...

I love it!!! I always do the non=member thing and make people try to convert me!

The Professor said...

Oh man...I absolutely hate the Gene Cook story. Can't one be a good member and a Stones fan too? Can't we all just get along?

Hilarious

We had a young gal in Relief Society use the big "M" word...The older Women in the ward gasped...it was ust as hilarious.

You do realize that not only have you condemned yourself to hell, but Mick Jagger will never know the gospel.

Had he been in the airplane seat, perhaps he would have converted over to the Church, and instead of "Can't Get No Satisfaction" he would have popularized "Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree."

Wait... hold on... You're MICK JAGGER?

Christy said...

I was waiting for "making love to his tonic and gin".

BTW I am always thrilled when a new post from My Religious Blog shows up in my Google Reader.

Someone actually referenced that story this weekend in Stake Conference! coincidence??

EZ said...

Wow Alan, your a really sharp guy, I bet nothing gets past you. Is it against our religion to have my pouch of Jerry Garcia's ashes in my desk drawer?

Laura said...

So now I have YOU to blame for that awful story that I was always told in YW's when I said I loved 1960s rock music...

"you should have seen the look on that old guy's face" I can it now. It is the look of thinly veiled excitment in having found a great story to tell that will confirm all they had assumed about someone, and can't wait to share it with the whole world! THey way I see it you did that old guy a great favor...you are much to generous...

Michael Ballam just called, he said you're ruining his video and eating all of the steak.

Wha ha ha ha!

That's exactly it, Brother Diogenes!

Exactly.

And thanks Sister Christy, I am also always excited to see you've commented here.

But seriously, Paint It Black was written to make kids have sex????? Call me ignorant, but I always thought there was more to it than that.

Holdinator said...

If it wasn't for you, Matsby, we'd only have 12 lines of defense.

EZ said...

Matsby, the key is to listen to "Paint it Black" backwards, then you get to hear all kinds of sexual innuendos in one of the languages from the tower of Babel.

Big 'M' word? What the...?

Annie said...

Mick Jagger doesn't fly commercial.

Brock said...

Speakin' of the M word, this week in Sunday School (I go to the "relationships" class) the lesson was about contention between spouses, and she asked "What sorts of things can prompt disagreements in a marriage?" After the usual sunday school nonsense, I spoke up and said, "Sex." She wrote "intamacy" [sp] on the board.
