So what you're saying is she used to be amish? One of those kids that went off on Rumspringa and never came back to the fold?

I was watching that reality show on the nat geo channel called Amish: Out of Order, which is about Amish who have left the community to join the world of the English.

And I got to thinking... hmmm... could it be, MP is a fallen Amish, out living among the English?

As Doukhobor women have been known to parade protesting around in the nude and there have been no known riots of young men other than the idiots in Vancouver and Quebec lately I highly doubt that the lady in question is Doukhobor. Besides most of the pictures that I've seen of protesting Doukhobor ladies they were not slim and trim as pictures of MP show her to be.

She is a Pumpkinite which is a small order that broke away from the main body of of the Gourdites back in the early 1920's in what was called the "Great Split".

Unlike the members of the main church who do not believe in travelling, bathing, or Justin Bieber, the Pumpkinites have adopted a nomadic lifestyle and prefer to live in vans and recreational vehicles due to persecution by Gourdite death squads, who are given a dispensation to leave the main commune in order to hunt down heretics. They can often be found close to bodies of water as they have adopted bathing and have done well to blend in well with regular campers and weekenders. This serves to camouflage themselves but can be set apart by their religious hatred of canoes which are a powerful symbol in the Gourdite faith.

If you are out camping and someone declines to get in a canoe with you, there is a good chance that you have met a Pumpkinite.

And we have all seen how much MP loves bubble baths.
