Weirdest patron saint?

i was looking for a patron saint of jars and came across a list of some very odd things to have a patron saint over.

Bricklayers???

what is the oddest patron saint you have heard of?

I know the bible says not to have saints and Catholics are all bad because of this but this is really just a fun question about religion.

  • Hey - bricklaying use to be a popular (and somewhat dangerous) occupation. It's nice to have a friend in heaven looking out for you if you're working hard building churches and things. ;-)

    FYI - the Catholic Church doesn't name all these patron saints. It's often more of a local tradition that a city or a group of people feel a saint is particularily called to help and interecede fro them.
