Over on The Cheesecake Maven's blog, there was some discussion of "teenage thespians." (Poor Maven. She lived through a whole day of it.) MNMom chimed in that there few worse phrases with the exception of perhaps "christian teenage thespians." I concur. I also offered up some of my least favorite word pairings, words that when used together make my skin crawl. Here they are plus one more:
Clown Ministry- Clowns / mimes give me homicidal thoughts. Throw in some parables being acted out to hambone music and I'm a madman. Anyone from Luther remember this? Those kids were creepy in and out of their makeup.
Liturgical Dance- Church is long enough without people leaping around in leotards with ribbons, or worse, writhing around in one of those stretchy body sacks. Oops. I just threw up in my mouth a little. Sorry.
Gay Republican- I've met some of these, and like clowns, I want to hurt them. Enough said.
What are yours?
