This Irish dad thought that his daughter’s christening was the perfect time for an exorcism joke and his girlfriend wasn’t amused.
A Twitter user called Ste tweeted screenshots of the hilarious Facebook invitations he received to a christening.
The initial invite to the exorcism was amended just 26 minutes later.
Ste was first invited to The Exorcism of Saoirse Anne. His cousin invited people to join him as “a man in a sheet throws a bitta water over over Saoirse and expels the demons that inhabit her soul.”
While the joke went over well with the internet, it probably didn’t resonate with his girlfriend. You can tell he got a proper telling off by the pure sass in his new invitation description.
“Come join us… for Saoirse’s special day, as she gets christened in a very serious and real ceremony.”
The tweet went viral with over 58,000 likes and more than 20,000 retweets.
A couple of users offered some fascinating insights.
Technically (theologically) a Christening is a kind of exorcism.

So technically, his cousin’s first invitation was pretty accurate.
