Nun gone wild?

I found this article on CNN.com today while I was in the back at work (with a computer right next to me–too bad Myspace decided not to work…bitches) and thought this would be a nice addition to the blog.

Here’s the article:

Nun rapped for wild dancing

BRUSSELS, Belgium (Reuters) — A Belgian nun’s acrobatic and indecorous dancing with a missionary during the Catholic World Youth Day in Germany over the weekend earned her a reprimand from her mother superior, a Belgian paper said on Tuesday.

Daily Het Laatste Nieuws showed pictures of a dancing Johanne Vertommen being held up in the air by the missionary, and then clinging to him with her legs wrapped around his body.

“I wouldn’t do this at home but at such occasions I get carried away by the enthusiasm of the group,” the 29-year-old told the paper later.

“My mother superior raised the issue today: she thinks I should watch out a bit and bear in mind that I represent our community,” Vertommen said.

Pope Benedict attended the celebration at the Marienfeld, outside Cologne, in the presence of some 700,000 people.

Crazy! Clearly like an Amish person that sees the world for what it truly is this 29 year old nun knows how to party!

  1. another two time post…wonder if it was just livejournal messing up.

    yeah, I’m trying to figure out the title for this movie.

    First there was Dirty Dancing, then Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, and now Dirty Dancing: Breaking the Habbit?

  2. No livejournal mess-up…that was me. There was a spelling mistake the first time, so I pasted it into a new message and fixed the error.

    Weird that LJ still lets you reply.

    Ohh, and:

    Dirty Dancing: Sister Act
