A Catholic priest got creative in doling out blessings and holy water around Easter time last month — and his viral method has since gotten a proper meme treatment … rightly so.
The guy’s name is Father Tim Pelc, hails from Detroit. About a month ago, he was standing outside his church and blasting his parishioners with holy water through a mini squirt gun — all just to bless their Easter food baskets. It’s tradition … and he kept it alive.
BTW, it was done safely — Father Pelc stood a good distance away from folks puling up to their makeshift drive-thru and shot water into their vehicles, this while wearing a N95 mask, a plastic face shield and disposable gloves. Hallelujah … responsible social distancing.
Meanwhile, Father Pelc’s photos went viral since he started doing this — and, naturally, the internet had a field day with the images. Some people featured him on fake movie posters, and we gotta say … they look pretty legit. We’d go see these flicks — if we could, that is.

Crafty online sleuths turned Pelc into an action hero of sorts — featuring him on posters for ‘Doom,’ ‘The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly’ and others. He slides right in perfectly — guess that’ll happen when you play dress-up and horse around like a little kid with toy guns.
Take that ‘rona … pewpew, pewpew!
