    Not sorry enough.


  2. cburrell Says:

    I didn’t make that, you understand. I only found it. Don’t ask how.

  3. Janet Says:

    Rest assured, it actually never crossed my mind that you might have made it. It’s not just the existence of the horrid thing that bothers me, but the fact that there is someone who obviously thought that that was a thing that one would want to possess, and, presumably, that there are people who might buy one. And I’m having trouble figuring out how anyone could make a connection between the lyrics and the object. It doesn’t even make sense.

    When will they release a thong with Maxwell’s Equations on it?

  5. cburrell Says:

    It’s from CafePress, Janet, which allows you to put your own design on pretty much any article of clothing, or on a mug, a mouse pad, etc. Probably somebody wanted to make a t-shirt and then, on a whim, checked off the ‘thong’ box as well.

    For you, Vince. (Well, maybe not for you.)

    Seriously, you people need to lighten up if you think this is so offensive. If I saw a woman wearing this, it would tell me that she had a sense of humor and a love of music. Classical music in general needs to be less sanctified and self-righteous, there’s nothing wrong with having fun once in a while.

  7. Janet Says:

    It’s not just classical music; it’s sacred music. You’re right, there’s a time for fun, but there’s also a time for reverence.


  8. Janet Says:

    You must not read this blog often if you think we don’t have fun.


  9. cburrell Says:

    Thanks, Janet. I’m travelling right now and don’t have much access. The irony here is that I was having fun.

    I re-dub this blog, “All Manner of Thong!”

    Just be sure to remember to size-up for a looser fit unless you plan to chant in a higher-than usual falsetto.


  11. cburrell Says:

    Give that woman a prize!

  12. Janet Says:

    Of course, that girls might not be as much fun as one might think. I mean, she is asking God to guard and watch over her and keep her from pollution. A girl like that might not let Wes see her in her underwear.


  13. Wes Says:

    “There’s a time for fun, but there’s also a time for reverence.”

    For you, maybe.

  14. cburrell Says:

    And a time to every purpose under heaven.

  15. cburrell Says:

    Time for its thong – er, swan – song. It’s been superseded by the Chant Baby Bib. – Althea
