That is an amusing picture.  Thanks for posting it.

Very welcome! 
 

Want to know a dirty little secret? I thought Donny and Marie were husband and wife until I joined the church and someone told me otherwise. Gross? Well, yes…but I grew up in the 90’s when they weren’t that popular, and way outside the LDS bubble so they weren’t “celebrities” to me.

According to an interview Donny gave some years ago, it's apparently quite common *for* people to believe that they're husband and wife instead of siblings, and trying to explain things doesn't always go as planned.

Just a little side note - Hugh Nibley thought that the coat of many colors was a mistranslation and that the correct translation should have been the garment of divine powers and covenant.  This would have meant that the coat was a symbol of divine covenant as passed down from Adam.  It is interesting that this is the only place in scripture that a coat of many colors (or divine powers from covenant) is referenced.  It is my personal impression that Hugh Nibley's insight fits better with the narrative.  Both in the sense of ancient traditions as well as modern revelation.

Awkward conversations for sure!

"Joseph's coat annoyed his brothers,

But what made them mad,

Was the way that he would talk about

The dreams he often had!"

(Great musical! I first saw it when I was 11 and loved it ever since!)

Back in the day, my sisters & I loved it so much we decided to memorize it and perform it for our parents.  We each had parts, costumes, sets, etc.  I was the Brothers (yes all 11) during this part.  We put puppets on my hands to show the "many" people I was playing and then all the Brothers "punched" Joesph & threw him in the pit (played by the baby of the family whom did get all of that attention).

 

Even today I still have the songs memorized and still sing them to my baby boy when he's having a rough night and I need songs I can sing for an hour straight.

Even the brethren would defer to Nibley's experience.
