Someone probably should have told this church that there’s more than a few ‘Hail Mary’ carols.
Sadly they choose rapper 2Pac’s version. Not the most suitable lyrics!
The Church in Colombo were hosting their carol service ‘Joy To The World’ on 11th December when this mistake happened. They were meant to be singing a Catholic prayer, also called ‘Hail Mary’, when they spotted the wrong lyrics.
Pictures have since spread on social media, with people sharing those 2Pac’s lyrics. Here’s just a little snippet:
‘I ain’t a killer but don’t push me
Revenge is like the sweetest joy next to getting p*ssy
Picture paragraphs unloaded, wise words being quoted
Peeped the weakness in the rap game and sewed it
Bow down, pray to God hoping that he’s listening
Seeing niggas coming for me, to my diamonds, when they glistening
Now pay attention, rest in peace father
I’m a ghost in these killing fields’
It makes me feel a lot more relaxed about any mistakes we might have made over the Christmas services.
Anyone passing a glance over Wales’s pre-match team photos in recent months would notice there’s something just not quite right about them.
From the numbers not stacking up (four at the back, seven at the front anyone?) to the lopsided nature of the players’ arrangement when a more traditional six-plus-five formation is put into practice, it would appear members of the Welsh national team have a curiously skewed idea of what symmetry is. Then again, it’s more likely that they’re just having a bit a team in-joke.
The moment when are “kid’s menu” becomes “children on the menu” rather than “a menu for children”.
A fancy wedding accidentally made that less-than-fancy mistake on RSVP invitations they sent out. In a photo uploaded to Reddit’s r/funny, the RSVP card asks you, sir or madam, for your name, whether you’ll be attending, and whether you’d like to eat beef, pork or young children (12 and under) for the entrée.
Just check off your favorite dish, and let them know about any dietary restrictions. They’re free range, completely organic and just a bit whiny.
Everybody makes mistakes, but not every mistake costs its victim masses of money.
In Scotland, a restaurant diner was shocked to realize that he’d accidentally tipped more than £1 million on a £100 meal. Oops.
The Evening Express reports that the massive transaction happened at an Indian restaurant in Inverurie, Scotland. After the diner finished his meal, he approached owner Abdul Wahid to settle his bill.
As Wahid tells the Express, when the diner input the tip amount in the restaurant’s credit card reader, the transaction didn’t go through. After phoning the diner’s bank and obtaining a confirmation code, the transaction was successful.
It wasn’t until the diner handed the card reader back to Wahid that the owner realized his customer’s £1,006,082.04 mistake.
All was not lost, however. After calling the bank to note his mistake, the customer got his money back and paid a more sensible amount.
Aerial photographer Tim Whittaker compiled this footage of sheep in the Hawke’s Bay region of the North Island. The herd moves like an enormous, shape-shifting organism – it’s fascinating to watch the mass of the sheep squeeze through gates and settle into new forms.
Comedians are well-known for mocking religion; do you think Christianity and comedy can happily coexist?
It’s easy to see the church as a sort of bullied boy in the playground that won’t fight back. But God is big enough to take criticism or take a joke. There’s something pretty insecure about feeling the need to do God’s work or protect him. I did do a video a little while ago about the weirdness of Christianity, but honestly within comedy people don’t actually hate Christianity. They hate two-dimensional reactionary Christianity, but there’s actually quite a softness towards ‘thinking’ Christianity. Comedy is full of people who used to go to church but couldn’t quite go along with the whole package because it was too jingoistic. I know a heck of a lot of people in comedy whose parents were clergy or missionaries. Ultimately a lot of comedy is dealing with the truth, about life and what it’s all about. The same is true of faith. That said, I do still try and be sensitive when I make jokes about it and even after all these years I’m still trying to pin down what I feel comfortable with. I don’t really have any hard-and-fast rules, it’s more about instinct. Sometimes words written down can look fine, but it’s the way in which you say them and vice versa.
