  1. Far more accurate than many Bible quotes I’ve seen misused and exploited by evangelicals in support of Trump recently.

  2. TrulyTexan says:

    Is butt dust anything like bellybutton lint?

  3. I don’t even want to know what butt dust is.

  4. And Easter Sunday is April 1.

  5. Hmmm
    And according to Kansas “All we are is” butt “dust in the wind.”

  6. Here is Fredericksburg one of our local Lutheran pastors (who is known for his creative and off-the-wall sermons) has instituted an “Ash Drive-thru” for today. Apparently, you don’t even have to get out of your car or actually go to church to receive your ashes. Just stick your head out of the window and you’re done.

  7. Butt dust??

    Somebody needs to drink a lot more water.

  8. Feb 14th also the day of four of the best words in use:
    pitchers and catchers report

  9. “Butt dust.”
    I don’t have anything clever to say. I’m just sitting here snorting and chuckling and thinking about how hysterically the children will respond to butt dust. Ash Wednesday solemnity ain’t gonna happen in that church this year.

    Okay, that reminds me of a true church story. The church ladies of a rural church were planning their annual fall sale of stuff they made – doilies, hand knitted mittens, baked goods, etc – as a fundraiser. They held a raffle too. I’m talking about little old ladies, gray haired gramas who baked cakes, did needlework, and solved crossword puzzles. One of their number was tasked with creating and printing the raffle tickets. She got her job done and the tickets sold well. I bought a couple. The told me the date and time of the drawing at the Church Ladies Bizarre.

    Cracked me up. “Bizarre” makes me picture someone like Dr. Frankenfurter from Rocky Horror. Now superimpose that over sweet little old ladies. Well I dunno. Maybe you had to be there, but I thought it was hysterical. I feel the same way about “Butt dust.”

  10. I guess that big, dark cloud hanging over Dee Cee is butt dust from all the buttonholes inhabiting the govinmint…

  11. Butt Dust?
    But, don’t they know
    there is a technical term
    for that, Fumunda.

  12. Can’t help but comment on the pix of the Douglas High School mother on the front page of the WaPo comforting her child. On her forehead was the cross of ashes. No butt dust here. Just broken hearts.

  13. Buttermilk Sky says:

    My friends calls Ash Wednesday ashes “Catholic zombie powder.”

  14. The fact that this error got printed and distributed explains a lot about what a mess this country is in. Ignorance is rampant and people do not read or pay attention to detail.

    Having said that, this is a really funny error.

  15. Ash Wednesday is a day on which we Catholics remember what is truly important in this life. We are so distracted by worldly worries and frivolous wants that we need to be reminded by the ashes in the sign of the cross what we should focus on: the sacrifice that was made for us and the direction our lives should take. Knowing what occurred yesterday, I don’t think the jokes are appropriate.

  16. @ LYNNE: BUTT DUST is the INFORMAL name for what we Collige Edacated Kids call either ASS DANDRUFF, or FARTICLES.

  17. Goodbye. Just an echo chamber now. All knee-jerk and spittle.
