“After all the news that some churches, like Milan’s cathedral, were suspending the use of holy water fonts as a measure against swine flu, demands for my invention shot to the stars. I have received orders from all over the world,” (inventor Luciano Marabese) said.”

Inventor?

I guess I’d have to see the detailed workings to understand how it differs from a normal electriceye operated soap dispensor.

Adaptor, would most likely be a better description.

Do real men use holy water anymore regularly than they do soap dispensers in a bathroom, where we are told only a small percentage wash their hands in any fashion? ;-0

Funny how Holy water can save your soul but even it is just not good enough to prevent influenza. For that you need capitalism! Capitalism is even better then God at some things… if nothing else it sure seems like another good form of worship.

Hmmm…Looks like Jesus needed some help from the crooked capitalists!
