Contrived headline of the week goes to...

... the BBC for this story about priests potentially going over the drink-drive limit on communion wine. How much are they knocking back for crying out loud?

  1. I knew a childhood of churchgoing would come in useful one day: The Eucharist is deemed such a precious commodity, it must be consumed in the same service as it is consecrated. Priests, therefore, must consume all leftover wine and bread that was blessed for each service they officiate at. Which can mean at least a glass of wine; they tend to overestimate the amount needed at each service to prevent running out mid-Mass. So if you did three Holy Communions in a morning, you could find yourself over the limit.
