    Wear something like this to church that day:

    "What are you prepared to do?" - Jimmy Malone

    "What choice?" - Abe Petrovsky

    The Kooks would be better.

    When you pronounce the blessing, bless the container, not the oil, and then see if anyone corrects you.

    Or use anything less than 100% olive oil.

    Disco ball, colored lights, play "The Final Countdown" leading up to consecrating the oil?

    We do meet on the stage, so I could have the lights down low with a spot light or two on me.

    I taught priesthood last week. The topic was the sacrament, and as part of my lesson, I printed out a bunch of different symbols that have meaning for us today. Of course, it was when I was holding up a swastika in front of the class that one of the women in the ward came in to get some books she'd left on a chair. Timing is everything.

    I was going to share the picture of my wife's cousin (Derik Stevenson) flipping off the camera in the Ute locker room that he'd just posted the day before (it's a symbol) but I chickened out. Plus, it would have been hard for the class to see on my phone.

    That's exactly what the guy in my Elder's Quorum taught. Weird. Wonder if you are in my ward?
