Oh my

The Curt Jester has something for those suffering from Laetare Intolerance
The 4th Sunday of Lent is also known as Laetare Sunday, but many people are unaware of the problems of many people on this Sunday in Lent. Some people especially men experience gastrointestinal upset and skin problems at the site of priests wearing apparently pink vestments. Telling them that these vestments are actually suppose to be Rose colored to rejoice in Christ's redemption to look up and see the first rays of Easter is of no avail. Regardless of any efforts to explain why a Rose is appropriate they still see pink vestments. This condition is known as Laetare Intolerance and the sufferers are Laetare sensitive.

Unto now there was no help for those affected by Laetare Intolerance.

Introducing Vestmints made of pure organically grown herb mentha. Mint was originally used as a medicinal herb to treat stomach ache and nothing could be better for those who get queasy over apparently pink vestments. Laetare Intolerance does not have to change affect your active participation in the Mass, but you will be able to pray actively with the best of them.
Good stuff. And then there is his last line:
Remember though to see your doctor first before taking Vestmints to ensure you have a vestment related illness. He will take a stole sample and can give you the results immediately.
