God bless this Big Ass fan.
A Kentucky company with a wicked name – Big Ass Fans – is putting one of its industrial-sized machines in an unlikely place: a Brooklyn Catholic church.
The nearly century-old Our Lady of Refuge Church in Flatbush, where the congregation dwindles every summer because of scorching heat, plans to install the 240-pound fan next weekend.
“Oh my gosh!” church business administrator Judy Agard said. “We might have to change the name. It’s a church!”
Parishioners hope the fan will end three decades of 90-degree heat inside the church that sends the congregation to nearby St. Jerome church to cool off.
Worse still, workers have boarded up 30 windows with plywood while the original stained glass is restored – making the stifling church hotter than Hades.
