Amateur Catholic

We don't write books or do speaking tours.
In fact, we barely do our jobs.
-We're the B-Team of Catholic Bloggers-

This is the home of the Amateur Catholic® bloggers - or as we like to refer to ourselves, the B-team. We don't write books or do speaking tours. In fact, we barely do our jobs. That's not to say we're unambitious though... You see, this coalition is just the second phase our blogoshpere conquest. We suppose you could think of us as amateur crusaders too.

Membership will not bring you any money, perks, notoriety, or prestige - but you will get the privilege of proudly displaying the B-team badge on your blog! Lucky you, huh?

amateurcatholic @ gmail.com

If you are hosting a conference, parish function, or some other event and can not afford the exorbitant fees typically associated with a Professional Catholic®, please contact one of our members. We like to hear ourselves talk just as much as the Professional Catholics® do, we just don't charge you for it. But hey give us a meal, free beer, and a designated driver, and we'll speak about breaking the Da Vinci Code or anything else you might care to hear about.



The B-Team badge is copryright 2006, The B-Team Bloggers®. Of course, we're Amateur Catholics®, so if you use the badge without permission (enrolled membership), we won't hunt you down and make you cough up your hard-earned bucks. Just have fun with it and maybe buy us a beer next time you're in town.

Da Caveman: Amateur Catholic

Submission letter for The Lair Of The Catholic Cavemen
http://catholic-caveman.blogspot.com

Can we/should we be classified as a pro or an amateur? Hmmm.... Let's see what Hollywood has to say about this, shall we?

ARMY OF DARKNESS -
Ash sez: Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.

Caveman sez: Pro... amateur... I'm the guy with a shitty attitude, a thesaurus and a 15 Decade Rosary.

SANDS OF IWO JIMA -
Sgt Stryker sez: Life is tough, it's even tougher if your stupid.

Caveman sez: Life is tough, it's even tougher if you were schooled by heretical Jesuits.

COOL HAND LUKE -
The Captain: What we've got here is failure to communicate.

Caveman sez: What we've got here is failure to communicate... in Latin

TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE -
El Jefe Bandito: Badges? We ain't got no badges! We don't need no badges! I don't have to show you any stinking badges!

Caveman sez: Code of Canon Law? We ain't got no Code of Canon Law! We don't need no Code of Canon Law! I don't have to show you any stinking Code of Canon Law!

FULL METAL JACKET -
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, USMC sez: I want that head so sanitary and squared away that the Virgin Mary herself would be proud to go in there and take a dump.

Caveman (Msgt USMC ret) sez: I want that head so sanitary and squared away that the Virgin Mary herself would be proud to go in there and take a dump.
Too much. Welcome aboard, sir. Now let's see if I get my ass chewed out for calling a sergeant sir. ;) [The Caveman submitted his text all formatted nicely and all, but for some reason Blogger wouldn't display cave scrollings properly so I had to translate them into ASCII.]

What's going on with the last part of the Caveman's post? Can we get a fix?

That's the best line of the whole post!

You're more likely to get a bigger chewing by calling a USMC *Master* Sergeant a sergeant.

Hmm. Let me tell you about the time when I was a E3 corpsman and I walked up to a couple 1st Sergeants and started off the conversation with "Do you guys know..."

That was my first real butt chewing by a senior USMC enlisted. Learned an important lesson that day back in '84.

Ouch, Michael. I can't see coming out of a situation like that with any face left. ;)
