Clown Eucharist

I'm still in "lazy mode" regarding finding some material, and today is no different, though the travel fatigue and the effects of a busy week have worn off. I was going to post something more serious today, but Steve at Triablogue, via an email, informed me of the following tidbit, and, while not exactly breaking news, it is worth sharing. It also meets the day's quota for copy!

Basically, the gist of the post is that a New York church celebrated the Eucharist clown-style. Check out the pictures of people decked out as circus refugees.

One only wonders if, after handing out the elements of the sacrament, the people in charge started blowing up balloons and making dog-shapes out of them. Alternatively, perhaps the people at the table started juggling the elements while riding unicycles. The service wouldn't be complete without hitting the minister [or priest] with a cream pie during the benediction.

What ideas for the Clown Eucharist can the Pedantic Protestantistas offer, if any?

The service having finished, the minister proceeds to his car, which falls apart as he drives off in it.

I think he sits on one of those little miniature cars, the same ones I saw clowns ride back in my kiddie days!
