Do not trifle with the Church, my son.  Wristwatches are not the only things I can cause to disappear.

If the Russian Orthodox Church had spent a mere fraction of the 30K Euros this watch cost on hiring a better graphics artist, it could have avoided the embarrassment of this scandal by ‘shopping out the reflection of the watch as well as the watch itself!  I like to think everything happens for a reason, and it’s goofs like this which convince me there is indeed a God, and God has a blast exposing this exact kind of hypocrisy.

Thanks Everyone who sent this into us! You can see the original and more of the story on RT

    These guys are CEOs. Forget that they wear ceremonial suits and hats, CEOs are what they are. They get there because they have a CEO mentality. Somehow CEOs have a need to sport eat-my-dust bling. It’s a CEO thing, born of the playgrounds of the world. Priests take a bad career choice and make the best of it, just like the rest of us. They even have a codified saying about it: Render … unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.

    I have a theory that, across many religions, the wearing of asininely silly hats and clothing is meant to give the impression that the calculating driven upwardly-clawing wearer is a silly innocent simpleton lost in a fog of devotion to an invisible man in the sky. However, reflections really really suck.

      Ugh, reading a woman’s theory about anything can be more traumatizing and vomiting-inducing than the disaster presented above. Did this come straight from your vag­ina? Did you create 5 alternative accounts to like your own comment or are there 5 people stupid enough to agree with that babbling? 

      • JStass

        Dude, you totally just ruined your own case when you decided to use the word “vagina”.

        Reading your posts puts me in the identical mental and emotional state that I experience when I rise up from the toilet after evacuating my bowels and give the results a cursory glance before flushing and washing my hands.

    He already lives in a palace and everything that goes with it. He probably wears a million dollar Wonder Bra.

    They still don’t know that covering up a scandal creates more scandals?

  • kleenex

    someone is going to go to hell and not heaven for this disaster…

    • CragAntler

      True, but it’s just Russian Orthodox hell, which basically means twice as much time in church.

  • Bev

    Now that’s a big oops!  Makes you wonder what else about this meeting was fabricated or altered.

    I’m surprised this thread isn’t full of people whining about how “disrespectful” this post and Waldobaby’s comment are. The sheep are  probably all in church today, I guess.

      I know, right?  I wait FOREVER for good PSD’s about politicians and religion to come in so I can write something really edgy and controversial and get someone’s sanctimonious panties all up in a bunch, and this beauty pops up, and all I get is one lousy rant from poor old David on here.

      I wonder what Rick Santorum’s up to today.  Oh, well…

  • CragAntler

    Not a PSD.  I’ve seen that watch advertised.  It comes with a state-of-the-art “cloaking device” that engages automatically upon detection of larcenous thought patterns.

    OMG, Watchgate got on PS Disasters. Hell yeah.

    Isaiah 65:5 Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou. These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burneth all the day.

    Maybe it was a gift. Many people give expensive gofts to religious leaders.

  • Agustine AZ

    I had no clue that having a watch makes you a rich person… I got similar ones for 3 dollars.

  • Bradley D.

    Blimey. You’d think, after the Communists went out of their way to destroy the Russian Orthodox Church the first time, that those guys would have learned to be a bit more circumspect about this kind of thing…

  • David Vonrelem

    Was the caption written by a 12-year-old hysteric girl? I know we can’t expect any kind of professionalism from the new staff that run this site, but use one of the posts as an excuse to express  a juvenile rage against religions? Seriously? 

    • Tto

      it’ll be ok.

    • Scooter

      My sincere apologies, David.  As a paid subscriber, you are entitled to a much higher level of professionalism than what we have been so far been… hold on…

      What?… Really?… Completely free, huh?…. Huh.  I did not know that.

      Um… never mind.

  • borodin

    I would have erased that spike coming out of my head too.

  • Joe Powers

    Awesome! :)
