Nun Bun Conspiracy




In 1997, months before her death, Mother Teresa was so pissed-off that Nashville's Bongo Java was selling Nun Bun t-shirts, she wrote to them, asking them to stop selling merchandise with her image on a cinnamon bun.
Perhaps the thief who stole the Nun Bun this past Christmas was a big Mother Teresa fan, and acted in a revolutionary manner to honor her humility.
If that's the case, it is possible that the thief destroyed the bun immediately after stealing it, setting it aflame in some dark alleyway. I wonder what a shellaced cinnamon bun looks like, aflame.
There's a fine line between false idols and American kitsch. But it's also a shame to shellac a good cinnamon bun if it's eventually going to be destroyed anyway.

Part the first- I saw the Pastry in person many years ago and was quickly ushered out of the establishment due to the fact that we used flash photogrphy. I can attest to the fact that the sweet sticky roll did resembe Mama T to a T. It was uncanny.

Part the second- Is it wrong to comment on a blog enter five years after it was posted? SOrry- I was stuck playing Snood for the first three years and then stumnbled upon Pandora and was unusualy detained for the most recent two.
