Now THAT’s What You Call a Prayer

One of my favourite scenes from Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby is the “Saying Grace” scene. “Dear Lord Tiny Christmas Baby Jesus…”

The lessons from this scene weren’t lost on the guy leading the pre-race prayer at a recent NASCAR, right down to the little bits of product placement (hey, Jesus kicked the moneychangers out of the temple, not the auto parts guys) and the reference to the “smokin’ hot wife”:

From now on, whenever I’m asked to say Grace before dinner, I’m ending it with “Boogedah, boogedah, boogedah, A-men!”
