Where's my golden arm?

Postby Pyrrho » Fri Feb 02, 2018 12:12 am

It's traveling across Canada!

Thousands across Canada have attended public veneration for the right forearm of St Francis Xavier. The relic has made a rare trip outside of Rome to visit more than a dozen cities.

What happened to his left arm?

Did it (and the rest of his body) get a decent Christian burial, while his right arm goes on tour? :lmao:

The Jesuits took it in the 1600s. The rest of him is on display in India.

Hmm.

I'm having a big idea about Lenin.

Too bad if that turns out to be a wax dummy like some folks have speculated.

Looking for the tugboat scene from 'Sometimes A Great Notion' after Hank ties Henry's arm to the mast....

Can't bloody find it.

A wax dummy is pretty much what an embalmed corpse is.

Well then everything is in order.

Did you know Lenin's left arm can cure both piles and bourgeois formalism?

I thought one of Roose Bolton's sellswords lopped it off...?
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"
