Snark and Testimony



Some of you follow me on twitter (@shmandyface) and know that
I like to use the hashtag #snarkandtestimony
(introduced to me by @prestoniscrazy
coined by @dfresh).

Others of you may know my deep seated love for gifs
as I've posted them on fb and twitter incessantly.

Well, I had the thought to combine the two last week when I tweeted this:

When someone's family member visiting your ward gets up to bear their testimony:





It made me giggle so I decided to entertain myself and do more!
Enjoy!



When you break your fast:



When you try to read Isaiah:



When your visiting teachers decide to "stop by" and your house isn't clean:


When I try to cry during testimony meeting because everyone else is:



When your friend won't stop talking to you in Sunday School:



When your bishop calls you to be a sunbeam teacher:



When you're about to take the sacrament on fast Sunday:



When someone calls you at the end of the month to see if you did your visiting teaching:



When the teacher hands out treats before the lesson:


When your Relief Society president tries to bond with you:



When you get to sacrament meeting late and are trying to find your family:



When somebody starts in on their third pioneer story in their testimony:



When somebody brings up politics in Sunday School:



When you visit a ward in Utah:



When somebody tries to tell you that 'day of rest' doesn't mean napping:


When someone cute moves into your ward:



What your bishop looks like when he can't stay awake during sacrament meeting:



When you walk out of your room and realize your home teachers are there:



When somebody doesn't ramble on and on when they bear their testimony:



When someone says they like 8am church:



When someone calls you to ask why you're not at Sunday morning meetings:



When the person who bears their testimony every month starts walking up to the pulpit:



At girls camp:



When your visiting teaching companion finally finds out who you are:



Trying to pay attention in the third hour of church:


When you go back to visit your family's ward and everyone asks if your dating someone:



When you found out Christ wasn't born in December:



When your bishop finally finds out you can play the piano:


When another sunday school class get's treats but yours doesn't:



When nobody get's your Arrested Development reference in Sunday School:



When you walk into a different ward and everyone thinks you're an investigator:



When your YM & YW leaders try to act cool at a stake dance:


When you get all dressed up and go to a fireside and then find out there won't be treats:



Coming home after 8am church:



When you see your returning missionary walking out of the terminal:



At a stake dance:
Expectation:



Reality:



When you're the chorister during sacrament meeting and your friends try to make you laugh:


When someone you've seen sneeze on their hands earlier comes up to shake yours:



When you and your spouse make it through all three hours of church:

Oh my GOSH I had the hardest time not cracking up so loud (my family is still asleep). This is HILARIOUS!!!

Jenny B said...

Usually I roll my eyes at Mormon humor, but really, this is THE BEST thing I've ever seen. Thank you Miss Dash it All.

Erica said...

Oh my heck! These were awesome!!

And we just switched to the 8 am block...from 2 pm. I was pretty dang proud that we were all there in our seats before church even started! Quite sure that will never happen again. ;)

But seriously, I loved these!!

Andrea said...

I feel ya on the 8am church. I don't know what they're thinking when they plan that. Let's just say Jenny B's ward is at noon, and last Sunday a lot of people thought I was an investigator that day...

erica[goodjobmomma] said...

bahahaha!! after you tweeted the first one i showed as many people who would appriciate it as i could! i was at church too. hahaha. these are all spot on.

Jenna said...

Last one should be, "When you and your spouse make it through 3 hours of church without killing or accidentally losing any kids."

This was hilair. Sharing.

AN Petersen said...

love it! Hillarious!

lacy.lynn said...

well this is just amazing. the last one seems especially fitting. i've only been married for four months, but i think we've only made it through all three hours of church maybe 50% of the time. it's a whole other world when you're not dependent on your roommates for a ride home...

Caitlin said...

Oh my gosh!!! The returned missionary one was exactly how I was when I see my missionaries hahah!!! Laughing out loud with tears streaming down my face this is so funny! I love the dance expectation too. Its so true!!

Dee Wright said...

I was thinking that the "getting the sacrament on Fast Sunday" was going to be my favorite, but then I got to the "visiting a Utah ward" one and pretty much lost it from there. XD These are all just total fried gold.

alitheia said...

My username alitheia is a greek word meaning TRUTH.

I wasn't born a mormon.I became a mormon and i have seen some very very good things in the mormon church. So make me a favour. go to the mormon church and hear all the people or only those who became mormons and not born as mormons. Hear them what they have to tell you to how the became mormons.aks them their testimony and then speak.

Stephanie Abney said...

Funny stuff!!

Tyler Stott said...

I seriously could not stop laughing, I thought I was going to die! You are a wonderful person for making this!

Heather said...

I laughed until I had a headache! I thought every one of these was crazy-hilarious. You have to have a sense of humor to be a Mormon. If you don't laugh, you'll cry.

Dee Woodard said...

Oh I just adore you! I needed to laugh!

katie said...

Honey boo boo's mama was my favorite! Too funny!

Beverly Houpt said...

Girls' camp. Yup. I remember doing just that: bras on the outside of our shirts.

Also, I want to post this to tumblr! Do you have one?

Tom said...

its funny, but it makes it seem like being LDS is a bad thing.
