Held on what is traditionally the first Sunday of every month, it is a period of time that is filled with countless opportunities to ponder and reflect on what is truly meaningful and to implore our Heavenly Father for assistance when it is needed, all while giving at least the cost equivalent of two meals to the poor and needy in our midst.
But, let’s be honest. It is also a day where countless stomaches rumble and grumble protesting the three-hour block, Sunday School and Primary teachers sigh with dismay that they cannot bring treats to pacify mind-wandering students, the Bishop’s candy bowl (which is a constant favorite in my ward) cannot come out after the block of meetings to reward good Primary children for making it through yet another 3-hour block of meetings, and many ward members (myself included) have to chew gum to ward off the perpetual “morning breath of death” due to an empty stomach.
Culturally, the concept of Fast Sunday has been a phenomenon within the Mormon faith for countless years, and many funny anecdotes and jokes have been shared about the woes that can come from an empty stomach.
With the advent of the internet, the current iteration of these funny anecdotes and jokes have been converted into memes.
Take a look below and let us know what you think! Which is your favorite? Why?
