Today’s special seasonal award goes to a church in Sri Lanka that might want to check its source material a bit more carefully.
ONE of the largest Christmas Carol services in Sri Lanka has accidentally printed the lyrics to late rapper Tupac Shakur’s vitriolic banger, Hail Mary, instead of the traditional Catholic prayer.
According to Pedestrian TV, the mishap occurred during a carol service at Colombo’s Nelum Pokuna, which was attended by thousands of people.
The crowd opened their programmes to find possibly the world’s first recorded incident of the word “p*ssy” appearing in a Christmas service, along with expletives every second line.
There’s more at the link. A tip o’ the hat to Australian reader Snoggeramus for forwarding it.
I can’t help wondering if that was a genuine mistake, or whether some mischievous rap-music-loving clerk in the church office decided to . . . er . . . err, if you know what I mean.
