If only the “parody” were actually a joke. In reality unsafe buses, unsafe drivers, and unsafe practices are par for the course in many bus “ministries.”
This stunt is an old standby of fundy bus ministry workers.
You can tell this guy is a horribly progressive fundy by the way he wears his hat backwards.
In the realm of fundy music there are grand old hymns, and sacred choruses, and gospel songs. Then, there are also songs like this…
(repeat the words after every line)
Potato Chip, Potato Chip
I love Jesus
A bunchie bunchie
I went down to the river
And I took a little walk
I met up with the devil
And I had a little talk
I threw him in the river
And I hung him on a line
You can beat the Devil
Any ole time
I once knew a woman
And she walked liked this (Bent over act like your holding a cane)
But when she met Jesus
She was walking like this (Hands the air high stepping)
And yes, this is a song from busministry.info, a fundamentalist bus ministry resource site.
The next time a fundy tells you that he won’t listen to contemporary music because it’s just too big on feel-good and too light on doctrine, I recommend that you laugh loudly and then walk away.
Update: I also found video!
The video description reads as follows:
We had a promotion for our bus kids a in May 09, which was if the kids brought a certain number of visitors then (the bus captain) & my workers and driver all got 5 shots at another worker, Jamie. Well….when it was my turn, I kinda took a few more shots than agreed, but hey….I’M THE BUS CAPTAIN!!!
