Faith workers

The two gentlemen pictured below Amicus sees fit to call 'faith workers'.


I nominate 'faith worker' as the year's vilest neologism, and I seriously doubt that either the Chief Rabbi or the Archbishop of Canterbury will be putting it on their visiting cards any time soon.

Interesting that this term "worker" is used to diminish the role of religious leaders, yet elevate prostitutes.

Yes, Verity. And I can't see 'What the sex worker said to the faith worker' jokes taking off, either. Nor 'Sex worker and faith worker' fancy dress parties....

But what did the entertainment worker say to the senior faith worker?  



Anonymous verity said... 7:05 pm

I couldn't hear because the sound system worker had the sound up way too loud. If anyone complained, the police workers would have to be called.

Perhaps I should bring all this to the attention of my political worker...

Croydonian - V good!

Kind of you to say so.

What with a Queen and all these workers, I suppose it would be redundant to ask where are the drones...  



Blogger CityUnslicker said... 10:45 pm

drones...yeesh.

Can we get the language as far as benefits worker or seeking worker?  



Anonymous verity said... 11:54 pm

Oooh, good idea, CU! Benefits workers ... yes ...

C'mon, people actually looking for work would be work-seeking workers ...

Being as how it's getting along for cocktail time my times, I am putting in time as a drink worker.  



Blogger Croydonian said... 11:45 am

I hope we are all feeling refreshed after putting in some time as sleep workers.....  



Blogger CityUnslicker said... 1:37 pm

and by responding to this, can you clarify whether I ama blog worker or comment worker?  



Blogger Croydonian said... 1:43 pm

Hmm, tough call CU. I think you are a blog worker moonlighting as a comment worker.
