    One from my favorite author…


    Now it is such a bizarrely improbable coincidence that anything so mind-bogglingly useful [as the Babel fish] could have evolved purely by chance that some thinkers have chosen to see it as a final and clinching proof of the nonexistence of God.

    The argument goes like this: “I refuse to prove that I exist,” says God, “for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.”

    “But,” says Man, “The Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn’t it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don’t. QED.”

    “Oh dear,” says God, “I hadn’t thought of that,” and promptly disappears in a puff of logic.

    “Oh, that was easy,” says Man, and for an encore goes on to prove that black is white and gets himself killed on the next zebra crossing.

    Most leading theologians claim that this argument is a load of dingo’s kidneys, but that didn’t stop Oolon Colluphid making a small fortune when he used it as the central theme of his best-selling book, Well That about Wraps It Up for God.

    Meanwhile, the poor Babel fish, by effectively removing all barriers to communication between different races and cultures, has caused more and bloodier wars than anything else in the history of creation.

    Alright, one more I thought of while hanging drywall:

You really going to hold that against me? Ok ok. What else? The 1st commandment?!?!?!???? Wait a minute… She was only fourteen!!! Well, OK, but you gotta admit, she was pretty hot. The 5th too? Well that’s easy for you to say, they weren’t your parents! WHAAAAT??? THAT IS THE 7th????? Oh to HELL with this! Have fun God.

    “By the way, just out of curiosity, how many souls you got up there in Heaven with you? 3? That’s all? Uh huh, uh huh, uh huh… Pretty boring up there, eh? Well, you know what they say, “Better to laugh with the sinners than cry with the Saints.” I’ll be talkin’ with ya God… Oh yeah, I guess not.”
