A vicar has asked his parishioners to bring socks and underpants instead of fruit and vegetables to this year's harvest festival.
Rev Gavin Tyte, 39, said he would rather see his church full of underwear than traditional apples, oranges and cabbages.
The controversial churchman wants the less traditional collection to go to the homeless in Exeter, reports the Daily Telegraph.
Rev Tyte, who is based at Uplyme, east Devon, told his shocked congregation: "This year, I don't want to see a single windfall apple or a marrow in church.
"I want us to provide what the homeless really need. So I want you to start collecting now."
The clergyman's list of alternative donations includes men's pants and socks, men's jeans, belts and dry dog food.
He has also requested toiletries including toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo and disposable razors.
Rev Tyte said: "Yes, it would be easier to go and pick up a few windfall apples. Instead, let's put ourselves out and collect these items."
The Rev Tyte made the news 18 months ago for his skills as a human beatbox which he uses to liven up his sermons.
