Yes, that's not "populi" (of the people), but "pupuli" (of the puppet). Here's a glimpse of what's going on in Louisiana's capital city, Baton Rouge:
The puppet pooch with the number 12 shirt is "Dexter". Wait! This crap's going on at Mass. Shouldn't it be "Sinister" instead? Thank God "Dexter" isn't consecrating! We'd REALLY be in trouble!
According to the Curt Jester, the bishop there seems to be OK with it. Oy vey! Further, this could be a Louisiana epidemic. The Jester concludes:
I am starting to wonder if Louisiana is now the headquarters of the Puppet Mass since a Fr. Sweet in Shreveport is a ventriloquist who does Mass with his puppet Charlie. I assume In Persona Puppet.
This gets me wondering... Jason, do you know of any crap like this going on in Lafayette?
For my next act, Father will celebrate Mass invisible. Yeah, right! Drink some of that stuff Fred Flintstone invented - "412-Up", the stuff that Barney Rubble guzzled that made HIM invisible (the funniest part of that, btw, is when Fred got stopped for speeding, and the invisible Barney says to the cop, "uh, just give me the ticket and shut up!"). Yeah, drink that stuff, then start processing in - completely invisible.
You think that idea is stupid? It sure is. So is the puppet Mass and the ventriloquist dummy Mass (OH NO!!! It's Mister Hat!).
Do not give what is holy to dogs, unless they are a puppet dog, snarks the Curt Jester. I'm suspecting this is inspired by a line in the Ecce Panis Angelorum part of the sequence Lauda Sion Salvatorem that goes like this:
Vere panis filiorum, Non mittendus canibus.
This translates thus:
Truly the bread of children, not to be given to the dogs.
