Clergy Confetti?

priest with brightly colored bacgroundIn my work as an editor, I continue to collect editorial bloopers.

The following sentence appeared in an article that encouraged VBS leaders to make program adjustments for students who have special needs/sensitivities:

“A big opening VBS ceremony with flashing lights, loud music, and a confetti canon might sound like a great idea, but how will that affect those kids who are sensitive to light and sounds?”

The writer wanted to say “confetti cannon.” A canon is a clergyman. My guess is that a clergyman exploding with confetti would be alarming to everyone in attendance, not just to those kids with special sensitivities.
