New meaning to the term: 'The Flying Nun'!


I'm sorry but I knew someonen had to say it.

Goth Day, anyone?

I wonder if this is the Sister Mary Joachim who, as Dorothy Stang, was murdered in Brazil...

Damn.

You may be right about that; matter of fact, I'd be willing to bet you are. I saw a doco about her (They Killed Sister Dorothy) not too long before posting this, and any possible connection just flew past me. Thanks!

Weird, I was just in the Smithsonian on Saturday, and they had a fibreglass Dumbo on display, but it was one of the newer ones; the older ones pictured here had flapping ears, while the new ones don't. Way to take the fun out of it, Disney...
