Accidental Google auto-complete liturgy

bitb_google-liturgy_1_20140211Google Poetics is a Tumblr that presents a series of auto-completed Google searches, and relishes the accidental poetry it creates. Sometimes in borders on the profound — the wisdom of the crowds manifest? — but often there’s a screwball punchline. I recommend it.

I thought I’d try it, using a couple a well-worn Unitarian Universalist liturgical phrasings; success!

We light it up
We light a thousand candles bright
We light the candles
We light em up

bitb_google-liturgy_2_20140211We light this candle
We light this candle in memory of
We light this chalice
We light this chalice to celebrate Unitarian Universalism

What do you think? Have you tried a phrase?
