Last Minute Indulgence

I hope that Orthodox readers are enjoying Maslenitsa. Great Lent begins on Clean Monday, and I wish you a beneficial fast. For this last pre-lenten post, I offer some sacrilicious humor:

The cartoon really isn’t that much of an exaggeration. One would think that Orthodox Lent lasted longer than a mere forty-nine days. Why forty-nine days instead of forty? See “Why Clean Monday?” for a short answer.
