Um...

As the Meetinghouse Librarian for our Stake Center(our church), I get the privilege of going through items to discard of things no longer needed or items that are against church policy to have(which is actually anything not distributed by the church itself). I came upon this little gem the other day. . .in the church library remember. . .

Please know, I have nothing against self-examination to help in the detection of cancer, but in the church library? Reeeeally?

When I saw this, I immediately thought of the following scenario: Somehow videos get switched. The wrong video gets put in the wrong video jacket. The teacher of the deacon class(boys ages 12 and 13) grabs a tape thinking it is a "church" video. After all thats what the case says....

He then goes to his class and teaches an inspirational lesson. He then pops this little diddy into into the VCR.

The deacons eyes pop out of their heads.

So, the lesson learned here: please don't donate a boob video to the church library.

This is now in my pile of "donation" items to take to Good Will this week, but of course, how could I not take a picture of it and post about it! It made me giggle a little when I imagined what could've happened had it been in the wrong hands. he he.

Hopefully I don't get fired for this post. :)

LOL. Loved the scenario. Those deacons would have been in for a big booby suprise!!!

Ohhhhh the questions after that one! That reminds me of being a Junior in HS and having a substitute show us "Room With a View" in English class, which had some full frontal male nudity, for like 15 minutes. (running through a forest and everything) it was quite unusual, and I think she got called into the Principals office for an explination. It made for a great yearbook paragraph at the end of the year.

Who would put that video in the library?!

Still cracking up here. I can totally see us showing this in Primary -- almost as good as to the deacons, right? A boob video in the church library - who knew???

That really is so funny! But as a mom of teenage boys I would not be laughing if they happened to come across the vid. Lets keep church G rated. Ü

Oh, that's funny. I think you should host an essay contest about how that video made its way into the church library. Whoever wins gets to keep it. Wow.
