Patron Saints

A friend tonight was watching an episode of "L.A. Ink" on TLC. (Oh yeah The "Learning" Channel actually used to show informative documentaries about the Roman Legions and stuff like that, but I guess it's easier and cheaper to make time-wasting reality shows)

Anyway.

So a kid walks into the tattoo parlor, and requests to get a tattoo of Saint Christopher, patron saint of travelers, on his chest. He said that his mom used to buy him Saint Christopher medals all the time, but he kept losing them. He figured he wouldn't lose a tattoo. So the tattoo artist says something like "How about getting a tattoo of the patron saint of not losing sh*t?" And I got a good laugh from it. And this one time, at band camp...

Fun fact! According to Wikipedia, Saint Christopher (see above image) is sometimes represented with the head of a dog!! Son of a bitch!
