What a Martian wants

"I crave for something mushy and bland, take me to your Bishop"

Sadly, there is little evidence to suggest that Martians are in the slightest bit interested in the traditional Catholic Faith.

They have openly rejected the concept of Baptism in favour of mashed potatoes.

That's right, you heard correctly, mashed potatoes.

They are not concerned with the teachings of Holy Mother Church and a life of redemptive suffering, they only want....yes, you've got it....mashed potatoes!

They would make excellent liberal Catholics....


  1. That was a great ad - I remember it well! I am somewhat baffled by Pope Francis talking about baptising martians as I do remember reading some years ago that a spokesman for the Vatican said that aliens such as little green men would not need to be baptised as they could well have come from a planet where the inhabitants had not inherited original sin and could be perfect beings in spite of their difference in appearance to us humans. This sounded perfectly logical to me at the time.

    I thought your cartoon a bit harsh but have to admit it made me laugh! Nobody in mind of course.

  2. I would add that martians and those who support their gaudy greeness, especially during Holy Mass, want a huge helping of fawning worldly attention with their mashed potatoes. The sort of attention that addles the brain of both parties.

    1. Viterbo - fawning worldly attention is the natural topping for mashed potatoes. God bless.

  3. Pelerin, yes, that commercial was one of the greats. Sorry about the cartoon but I think that it is a fair comment, but it did worry even me - for a split second! God bless.
