Puns Of Perdition

If I was going to make a Mormon-themed breakfast cereal, it would be called Thomas B. Marshmallow Mateys.

And it would be especially good with full cream milk.

Here's the thing: This post... I got it from a dream I had last night. And it may not be the best post ever. But maybe it was a vision - maybe it was divine inspiration. And if it was... and I didn't post it, then maybe I wouldn't be given any more visions in the future.

So there's that.

I'd only eat it if there was a story of when little Tommy B Marshmallow Matey was but a deacon.

yeah, only then.

TOWR said...

Will it come in chocolate as well? Because I love those chocolate Marshmallow Mateys.

Christy said...

I'm sorry but I like to eat healthier than that. I would have to go for the Dallin H. Oats.

I'm 'bout to cry I love this post so much. I wish F&T meeting weren't so far away.

I like to eat mine while I watch David A. Bednar's and Broomstick's. (I just took this post in a whole new direction!)

Matsby,

Aren't we lucky you didn't have a dream about Elder Bednar's Extra Crunchy Pickle cereal????

It must have been an inspired dream. I just wouldn't know whether to use whole or skim milk with the pickle taste.....and do you add sliced bananas?

Where can I find the film "Hi, My Name Is Ryan"? Because the one on youtube I don't think is the one you mean, and it defenetly isn't funny.

Matsby said...

No, there is a full length documentary called "Hi My Name Is Ryan" that plays now and then at places. It did a bunch of festivals last year and I understand they are working on a deal for a DVD release. As soon as I find out when it's playing next or when the DVD is out, I will post it on this blog.

I went to an in-store performance he did a couple months ago where he hugged and kissed each member of the audience on the cheek.

Keep an eye out for him. If you see he is going to be in your town (he's from Phoenix) make sure you go and if you can see the movie, make sure you do.

If you collect enough box tops can you mail them in for a free affidavit against the religious leader of your choice? If so I am totally going to switch over from boring old Cheerios.

Holy Cow! I don't mean to alarm anyone, but Kirby Heyborne is now following my Regis Blog!

Hi Brother Heyborne!

Homer and Queen said...

I am down with the Dallin H. Oats. Every year we make Jeffery R. Halloween Treats. And I want a cooler name on the sidebar like everyone else.

Matsby said...

Rader IS a cool name.

TOWR said...

Matsby, I see you are a fan of The Smiths and, thus, totally awesome. Just out of curiosity, will you be attending the Morrissey concert in Las Vegas December 4? (Tickets go on sale tomorrow through Ticketmaster.)

Matsby said...

I am a fan of the Smiths (and I am awesome - thanks) but I'm not as big of a fan of Morrissey's solo stuff.

I've seen him before and it was great. But I don't need to see him again so much that I'd go to Vegas for it.

But thanks for the heads-up. I didn't even know he was touring again.

Poor Thomas B. Marsh. First loses his place in the kingdom, then he gets made fun of a blog like a hundred years later. Poor, poor Thomas B. Marsh.

rameumptom said...

At least Thomas B. Marsh isn't around to humiliate himself on blogs like some of us, er, some people do....

Matsby said...

I wouldn't call it making fun of, Brother Tang. I would say it's more like paying a loving tribute.

And I am pretty sure if Elder Marsh had had a blog, it would have been hilarious.

Nancy Nina said...

Marshmallow Mateys? Those are perfect because they are an off-brand, like you are promoting provident living by not spending all your hard earned money on the name brand Lucky Charms. Your post had double meaning and double righteousness. Well done Brother Matsby.

My Thomas Blog:

Dear Blog, today I got excommunicated over spilled milk....

Susan said...

I want you to check out Billy Barty he was famous "little person" Mormon. He needs to be your Mormon of the week!

Kerri said...

I needed a really good laugh today. Thomas B. Marshmallow Mateys provided it. With heavy cream. Purely awesome.

Matsby said...

Your wish is my commandment, Susan.

Susan said...

Wow! I've never had my wish be anyones commandment!

Thanks!

Have you heard the makers of Guitar Hero are putting out a new version for Mormons!

It's called Hymn Hero!

Instead of guitar, singing, and drums...you can sing the hymns (in tune for once), play the piano/organ, and lead the music! Some songs have the MO-TAB as the backup singers. I can see every ym/yw group getting it for mutual night and every singles ward getting it for FHE!
