Man still can’t decide what to give up for Lent

Local parishioner Burt “Chubby” McDonald is reportedly still deciding what to give up for Lent this year, according to his daughter Milya. 

“He keeps trying something out for a few hours, then gives up,” she told The Daily Inquisition. 

“Wow, Lent really snuck up on me this year,” Burt was heard saying. “I didn’t get a chance to pray about what to give up.” 

Burt wanted to take the time to properly consider an appropriate penance for this year so that he could really improve himself properly. 

“I feel the Lord is asking me to target my specific weaknesses right now,” Burt pondered. “But I just can’t figure out what those might be!”

McDonald originally had tried giving up alcohol for Lent, but abandoned that hours before his son’s 21st birthday. He next considered forgoing TV or video media, but eventually realized that meant he couldn’t watch March Madness. 

His daughter Milya suggested he start with not eating meat on Fridays, but the elder McDonald knew right away that wasn’t what he most needed.

“I love going to Red Lobster,” he said. “No meat on Fridays is not nearly challenging enough for me to be worth my time.”

At press time, Burt resolved to make deciding on a Lenten resolution this year’s Lenten resolution.
