Biloxi, MS (EotT) An OBriens Church Supplies shopper was injured earlier today after an out of control mob of frenzied shoppers smashed through the Biloxi stores front doors and trampled her, police said.
The Black Friday stampede plunged the religious good store into chaos as hundreds of people desperately tried to get their hands on the newly-released Sixfold Scapular, knocking several employees to the ground and sending others scurrying atop statues to avoid the horde.
When the chaos finally ended, 57-year-old Sister Angelica Bettington was injured with a cracked rip and a lacerated spleen.
She fell over as she tried to get a scapular and then was trampled, said OBriens Church Supplies worker Tim Williams. I havent seen anything this bad since 98 when the new Credit Card Rosary hit the shelves.
34-year-old Bill Radley, who was looking for a cheap-looking cross made of wood from Bethlehem, said that he was temporarily knocked unconscious in the stampede.
When I awoke, I noticed that my cross was broken in half. I still got it because its made of some sort of olive wood from Bethlehem. Thats where Jesus was born, so it must be really powerful. Well worth it.
Bettington says that even though all but two of the scapular folds were torn apart in the melee, that she was just happy they were the brown and green folds. Those are the best two anyway, right?
You've been warned.
I WAS THERE! they nearly overtook my machine gun nest
The store should have anticipated a huge Black Friday crowd, given that it is located in Mississippi, that hotbed of Roman Catholicism.
That’s nothing. You should have seen our local Presbyterians”R”Us this morning. They nearly had a riot over a discounted set of Calvin’s Institutes.
Is this story satire, or is it real???
The website is all satire I seem to recall
She didn’t need that spleen anyway.
Nun shall pass.
The Black Friday always triumphs!
She’s gonna need that green scapular now.

Of course it’s real...but only Roman Catholics understand this is real blood and real flesh! /s
