Caption Contest: Out of the Frying Pan…

posted by Jason Boyett

It’s time for a caption contest. Your job is to write the best caption for the photo below. I’ll choose a winner tomorrow morning at 9 am CT. The caption need not have anything to do with the actual, real-life explanation for the photo.

The winner gets a free copy of O Me of Little Faith — or, if you already have it, one of my other books.

Ready? Go.

19 year old Earl LeBuff was only mildly disappointed to learn that the “Jesus Pan” he bought on Ebay was in fact, a surplus “Frank Zappa Pan.” “Jesus/Zappa, Tomato/Tomahto,” he said. “Plus, my Dad’s big into MoI, and Father’s day is coming up.”

Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and make preparations for us to eat the [bacon].”
“Where do you want us to prepare for it?” they asked.
He replied, “As you enter the city, a man carrying a [frying pan] will meet you. Follow him to the house that he enters, and say to the owner of the house, ‘The Teacher asks: Where is the guest room, where I may eat the [bacon] with my disciples?’ He will show you a [likening of me, in greasy glory]. Make preparations there.”

A now more mature David Archuleta, donning his freshly pressed mortician’s suit, had just finished frying his morning’s bacon, causing him to commiserate those of the Jewish faith for not being able to enjoy such a delicacy when he was suddenly startled by Frying Pan Jesus questioning him about his Mormon beliefs. After the encounter, Archuleta was all smiles. As usual.
