Are you giving up anything for Lent?

LentI hadn’t noticed either until last evening when a lady gave me some spicy pancakes and that’s when it hit – it was Shrove Tuesday. May I point out that this lady is a Muslim, so what does that say?

Today is Ash Wednesday, first day of Lent. Will you be giving anything up for Lent?

    Bloody GROW UP!
    What has ANY of this religious shit got to do with freedom?
    NOTHING
    “Lent” was a practical recognition of the “hungry gap” in crops & food-supply, bolstered by religious practice as a survival mechamism, when our agriculture was crap.
    No longer applies.

    Already have. I lent some bastard a book, and he has buggered off to Hong Kong to work. Chances of ever seeing said book again…. NIL!
