Bad Vestments: Parrot Chausable

I really enjoy the Bad Vestments blog and it is always humorous, in a “if I do not laugh, I can only but cry” sort of way…they feature the world’s worst vestments. They devote their site, in their words, to “to subjecting particularly awful Christian liturgical vestments or church decorations to the ridicule they so richly deserve.”

Sometimes one rises above (below?) the rest. I present: the parrot chausuable. No, I’m not making this up. Here you go, and no, I have no idea what it means.

    /puts on trusty “interpreting the bizarre” cap

    Obviously it’s meant to signify that just as a parrot speaks only the words taught to it by the one who owns it, so the preacher speaks only that which is taught him by the one who bought him at a price. The pastor’s words are not truly his own, but are the words of another. (If this somehow really IS what it’s supposed to mean…it’s still awful.)

    First Lutheran Church, Margaritaville?

    “It’s 5 O’clock Somewhere” Sunday?

    I doubt the garment is connected with any Christian church.

    Parrots in various religions are described here:

    Another parrot with a halo is in an image here:

    From South Asia, a story about a prophet named Shukador appearing as a parrot:

    Hey, if men and women are interchangable despite their obvious differences then why not doves and parrots? They’re both birds, right? Why leave the parrots out when God is obviously a God of inclusion and tolerance. :)

    Come on you guys… It’s a communion vestment for those who deny the real presence, so the celebrant can, with a straight face and wafer in hand, ask any parishioner, “Polly wanna cracker?” instead of the usual “Take, eat…” This can be done either on the Commemoration of St. Francis (when they also commune dogs, cats, etc) or when the foolish Clown Liturgy is observed.
