Real? Who Cares? It's Hilarious!

Posted by: Andee / Category: , , ,


Many moons ago someone gave me a link to Bishop Higgins 3rd Ward - News for Mormons. The guy who does the writing does so as if he is the bishop of the 3rd ward, but who knows (or cares) if that is true. The blog is one of the funniest things I have seen in a loooooong time.

I hope he doesn't mind me sharing the beginning of one of his posts, and forwarding more people to his wonderful sense of humor...

Starting this spring, BYU will teach a class on how to be a general authority. The class not only prepares participants in becoming general authorities, but it will also help you learn lots more scriptures, including a few about faith, and some about prayer.

Class topics with include:
1. How to select a proper necktie
2. Which shades of dark blue are appropriate for a suit
3. How to lovingly scorn sinners
4. Voice intonation
5. Avoiding loud laughter
6. Avoiding fun
7. How to read from a tele-prompter
8. Food storage myths
9. The two occasions when it's ok to swear
10. Whether or not Steve Martin is a Mormon and if not, what can we do to get him to be one.

    Funny you posted this tonight, Andee. That is exactly how I found you. Through links of links of people who are "ward members" to his blog. He is great. Hysterical even. I finally, FINALLY came to the conclusion that he can't be really a Mormon bishop. If the guy who started the Mormon missionary calendar gets excommunicated, this guy - Gerald Higgins would never last. But he has a good time doing what he does and I applaud him. But I applaud you as well. Your blog is my new favorite - sorry Bishop Higgins!

    You have to be right... there is no way he could get away with being a real bishop and putting this stuff on the net. Did you see the comment on his post about the sexy nurse costume? HILARIOUS!!!

    Yeah, I saw it. I have been following his blog for a few months now and have added many a comment to his blog posts.

    I find much, much relief in his blog, and now yours, after years and years of suffocation in the LDS church.

    Your blog is so incredibly refreshing, Andee. And to all the naysayers, I say "The truth hurts sometimes." Thank you for publishing the truth. It has and will continue to make a difference. I can promise you that.

    This guy cracks me up. My MIL thought it was real.....she was upset that he was putting pictures of ladies in their bikinis on the site. I told her, "What real bishop has a ward roster with a WARD GAY and WARD LIAR designation??". Haha.

    Okay, I have question and I don't care if it's dumb or not. Somebody gets to be the smarty pants and fill me in - I have seen two acronyms that I have no idea what they are: TBM and MIL. What the heck are those?

  1. Andee Says:

    MaybeMaybeNot,

    Your questions are not dumb at all!

    TBM= True believing Mormon or True Blue Mormon.

    MIL = mother in law

    If you run across any others just let me know :)
