Oh oh the giggles started in my throat and spread outwards. More laugh lines for me. Oh.. that was wonderful and showed how really really nonsensical it is to expect children, let alone adults to interpret these lovely fairy stories.
Thank you..
OH my stomach it made my day!

Well, speaking as a former chemist, I can only mention that Lot's wife turned into a pillar of Sodom Chloride.

One has to wonder though what Bible the religious right is reading.

Here is my take on how they read the ten commandments:

I. Bush is the Lord thy God.

II. Thou shalt not make or bow down before graven images, except of course if it is these ten commandments placed in a courthouse rotunda.

III. Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord in vain-- except when swearing a solemn oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, in which case it is OK.

IV. Remember the Sabbath Day-- it's a good day to reach big campaign donors at home.

V. Honor thy father and they mother. Honor is free. Social Security-- now that costs money, so you can cut it, but be sure to honor them while you are doing it.

VI. Thou shalt not kill. Except people who live in countries where they don't look like us, worship God differently and have oil.

VII. Thou shalt not commit adultery. Soliticing fourteen year olds online for sex doesn't count because they are not, strictly speaking, adults.

VII. (alternative): Thou shalt not commit adultery. Getting in bed with the pharmaceutical companies, big oil and defense contractors doesn't count.

VIII. Thou shalt not steal. If you get it through a no-bid contract from your friends and waste vast amounts of money, it isn't stealing because it has the government seal of approval on it.

IX. Thou shalt not bear false witness. Unless you are testifying before a Federal Grand Jury investigating the Plame leak.

X. Thou shalt not covet they neighbor's house, nor they neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass nor anything that is thy neighbors. Unless they neighbor is from Iraq, in which case it is OK to bomb his house, kill his wife, detain his manservant and maidservant indefinitely, commandeer his ox as an illegal means of transportation and leave him standing in the middle of the street with nothing but his ass.

Unsympathetic genitals? I have to ask my doctor about that one.

I had no idea St. Matthew was an oppussum. I thought he was a beaver.

Only one spouse called monotony. There are days like that. Thank goodness they are very few and far between.

Sodom chloride? I wondered about that. Great pun.

Children are priceless. What joy they can bring us if we only pay attention.

Thanks Karen
