That’s Succor, not Sucker

Standard

O happy day. The Our Lady of Prompt Succor tee shirt has finally arrived and I’m giddy with clothing delight. Not only is there the smirky low humor aspect of wearing a shirt that proclaims Our Lady of Prompt Succor (so appropriate for me, always a lady whose succor knows no limitations) but also the unexpected bonus of the illustration.

When I ordered the shirt I saw there was some little drawing above the school’s name, but I assumed it was some stupid bull dog. Imagine my thrill to discover it is Our Lady her very self, rendered as a flying, scrappy nun. I think of her as Sister Euphemia, the Fightin’ Nun Now with Super Powers! Ready to kick the ass of Sectarian Evil Doers and Masturbators! As R Man pointed out, if your school team is called the Succors, you really need a tough mascot and what better than a dykey Mary, Mother o’ Jebus? I only wish I had a big enough chest to do justice to the wonder of it all, but you work with what you got.

About mrpeenee

A former bon vivant and terror of a number of New Orleans bars in the mad, gay 1980s, I'm now quietly retired and widowed in San Francisco. I have a crooked nose due to an unfortunate Frisbee accident.

  1. Now every time I walk past the Ursulines convent I’ll think of you. Right after I pee on those fabulous doors they have. BTW doesn’t the house next door belong to Delta Burke?

  2. If you want to see where mrpeenee and R Man used to live, look across the street from the convent and up about half a block towards Canal Street, in the next block up from the Beauregard Keyes house.There are two single story cottages on the corner and then a big two story brick house with a beat up balcony. That was us.Now it has a brass plaque on the front saying some bogus musician was born there when it seems it would be more pertinent to note my period of residency.
