David Brent And The Old Nuns

His school was run by liberal nuns: Ricky Gervais' "David Brent"


One can found an old woman dancing very amusing at times. One thinks of Margaret Rutherford as Miss Marple in “Murder at the Gallop” and can only smile.

In other cases, though, you may have old nuns dancing in front of the altar to the tune of popular songs of the Nineties (must be the day before yesterday to them) and even thinking that by so doing, they will encourage young people to discover the vocation to become, one day, an embarrassing old aunt their relatives don’t talk about to their friends.

Now, this is not amusing. This is plain embarrassing. This reminds one of Ricky Gervais’ tragically unforgettable David Brent Dance. Mind, though, that Brent was not in the presence of the tabernacle, nor did he embarrass 100 people (viewers excluded) with his antics, nor did he plan to repeat his feat on several occasions.

“There is a dwindling [number] of [entrants] through the years. But because of this, we might be able to get recruits,” Sr. Eva Vargas of the Villa Milagrosa Convent told the Inquirer”.

You dance in front of the altar to a tune of the Nineties, and you get “recruits”…… ( I thought it was “vocations”, and not the army. My fault, for sure.)

I am not making this up. If you don’t believe me, click here or here.

Please spare a thought for the poor churchgoers.
