Xtreme! Unction

An ordinary-sized healing just won’t do, not for you. Your sickness goes way too deep. Your pathology is mountain biking down a snow-covered peak in the Rockies; your sin is bungee jumping off a bridge in New York; your depravity is shredding a broken asphalt path in a park for senior citizens.

You are in need of Xtreme! Unction, and Portuguese Artists Colony has a jumbo vat of consecrated oil with your name on it.
