When Showing Your Buck-Naked Rear at a Church Is Acceptable

When Showing Your Buck-Naked Rear at a Church Is Acceptable

This may sound kinda whackadoodle:

A small Roman Catholic church in Murtosa in Northern Portugal is the only Roman Catholic church where it is acceptable to drop your trousers so everyone in the church can see your naked rear end.

The reason?

The local saint, St. Gonçalo (a colorful 13th century priest), has a reputation for curing hemorrhoids.

All you have to do is show up at the church, show his statue the affected region, say a prayer and, according to the locals, the pain disappears.

That reminds me of all the hockey players who waltz into the gym without a well-thought-out plan.


Because praying to a holy spirit is the only possible way they could see any results out of working out like that.

Not so with my Next Level Hockey Training System.

I call it the "Saint Gonçalo of lifting".

It has a reputation for curing physical weakness.

All you have to do is show up at the gym, follow the workouts inside, and your weakness disappears.

Best part?

You don't even need to drop your pants.

Or say a prayer for it to work.
