God, I'm Hungry!

The Wall Street Journal, on recent trends in Japan, notes the emergence of "Jesus-themed" restaurants that are decorated with crucifixes and offer "such fare as the 'Small Devil' cocktail flavored with strawberry cream and cassis, and 'God-made Hamburger' (meatballs with cheese and rice, $6.50)." Ho-hum, we've seen it all before, haven't we? And gee whiz! Is that best those Japanese restaurateurs can do? At the risk of offending but mindful, as Screwtape advises, the devil hates being ridiculed, I humbly offer the following items that might be found on the menu at Chez Pierre par les Portes Nacrées, the Restaurant of Heaven. I invite readers to do same in the comments section.


Judas Escargot


Rack of Lamb of God

(And in tribute to my Huguenot ancestors)

Blackened Martyr in Richelieu Sauce

(h/t Ferdinand)
