Ryan over at Blogger of Jared has certainly jumped on the MTC-gripe bandwagon. Anything for traffic, eh Jaredites?

As a former resident of the MTC once penned,

"Yea, and it came to pass that we did shower at the tree of life. Yea, and I beheld that the skin of those roundabout was white, to exceed all the whiteness that I had ever seen.

"And I also cast my eyes round about, and beheld, on the other side of the bathroom, a great and spacious handicapped shower.

"And it was filled with missionaries from sunup to sundown, and their manner of dress was exceedingly modest with bathrobes and showercaps;

"And they were in the attitude of mocking and pointing their fingers towards those who had come to shower at the tree of life.

"And it came to pass that I saw my MTC brethren, and did beckon unto them to come and partake of the waters of the tree of life.

"But behold, they were ashamed, because of those that were scoffing at them from the large and spacious handicapped showers.

"Many of these brethren did press forward, and grasp the curtain attached to the aluminum shower rod, and they were lost in the steam and mists of the showers for an exceedingly lengthy period of time."

at the MTC the food was so awful that it gave my entire district really bad gas...sisters too. one morning we had to clear out the room because someone really let it rip.

yet at the same time, the mtc kept reminding us we should be grateful for the food, going so far as saying that it was "The Lord's Food." I thought of it more as The Food That Was Cast Out.

I was wondering if anyone would sniff out my lampoon of the recent string of mtc gripes. 10 points to the snarkernacle.

You poor poor thing. Didn't your mama feed you properly while growing up?

Only someone whose palate had undergone severe abuse could claim to "love the MTC food."

Did I inspire the anti group shower rant?
