O Lord, please…
With all the recent “Acts of God” – a tropical cyclone in Burma; an earthquake in China; flooding in the American Midwest; a typhoon in the Philippines – we should turn to Almighty God, our “Father” and call on His Omnipotence’s ineffable mercy…
O Lord, please don’t burn us,
Don’t grill us or toast your flock,
Don’t put us on a barbecue,
Or simmer us in stock,
Don’t braise us or bake or boil us,
Or stir-fry us in a wok.
Oh please don’t lightly poach us,
Or baste us with hot fat,
Don’t fricassee or roast us,
Or boil us in a vat,
And please don’t stick thy servants, Lord,
In a Rotissomat.
(Monty Python, The Meaning of Life, 1983)
What’ll take to get BAS (the Big Asshole in the Sky) to “stop allowing” these disasters!? What a prick. Good thing Al-Quddoos (القدوس – The Most Holy) does not exist. All we have to do now is to banish this farcical “God”-idea from gullible minds.
