Yes… This just happened.
A few weeks ago, on The Catholic Guy Show, the #NastyMuppet producer decided to make a “commercial” that basically mocked me – you can hear it here: https://soundcloud.com/siriusxm-news-issues/fr-jim-school-for-theology-and-campus-ministry
This inspired a listener to make a “logo” for the imaginary school, which included on the crest, fortunately a Cross and a graduates cap but also a pair of glasses (poking fun at my new “dumb” glasses that I have succumbed to wearing in middle age) as well as a sock, recalling the times I foolishly forgot Lino would insist I de-shoe upon entering his rat-infested apartment for the show and was found to have holes in my socks on three separate occasions.
This has also inspired people to send me personally more socks than I could ever possibly need. As well as one very funny and creative listener making a pair of socks with the Fr Jim School logo on it.
I’ve decided the best thing I could do after these months of mockery is to auction these socks off. If you go to Ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/152652818748? you will have an opportunity to bid on these socks until WEDNESDAY AUGUST 16th. ALL PROCEEDS WILL BENEFIT THE NEWMAN CATHOLIC CENTER AT MONTCLAIR STATE UNIVERSITY not the Nasty Muppet, his handler, the Catholic Channel or myself…
Who knows, if this goes well, perhaps some other merchandise will end up being auctioned as well. Of course, if you simply want to donate to Newman, we’re always grateful for people’s support – especially as we enter this Jubilee year celebrating the 50th Anniversary of our founding! you can do so at www.MSUNEWMAN.com
THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION!
