Father Tim Pelc was photographed getting creative with his methods of blessing his congregation’s Easter Food Baskets during a Holy Week service. In what has been described as a ‘drive-thru style’ blessing, Father Pelc could be seen squirting the baskets from a safe and responsible distance, allowing the parish of St. Ambrose to continue with their Easter traditions.

The pics were initially snapped by parishioner Larry Peplin, and brought a smile to many faces after being shared by the St. Ambrose Parish Facebook group back in April. In the weeks since, Father Pelc and his water gun have been widely shared on Twitter, providing inspiration for countless timely memes.

The photographs have even sparked a Photoshop Battle thread on Reddit, where, with the magic of Photoshop, Father Pelc has been edited into films such as post-apocalyptic comedy Zombieland and The Exorcist, as well as classic shooter video games like Doom. Another amusing Photoshop job shows Father Pelc plonked into the violent world of Pulp Fiction, brandishing his now famous water gun alongside John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson.
