Nuns Having Fun
By Maureen Kelly & Jeffrey Stone
Sister says, "To err is human. To laugh is divine."
Welcome to the lighter side of convent life! Culled from the black-and-white 1950s and ‘60s, here are hundreds of nuns caught in the act of letting their wimples down.
Here are nuns in the surf ("This is even more fun than walking on water"), nuns in bumper cars ("We brake for Jesus"), nuns in a beer hall ("Ale Marys"), and nuns in the museum, huddled in front of a study of nudes ("It's okay to open your eyes. Sister Wendy says it's art"). There are nuns on skates, at bat, at the theater, skeet shooting (nuns with guns!), even hitting the slots (you know it's for a good cause).
Catholic kitsch doesn't get any funnier.
