"Hey, Lindy?"
"Yeah, Charles?"
"What if God was one of us?"

It's always the one you least suspect.

Nah, god only works union shops. Deities, Idols & Hod Carriers Local 498.

Gripes about the dues, of course. But still pretty retirement package, and really appreciates how she can't be let go just on a whim.

Some might consider an unprovoked meme-bombing such as this an Act of War.

This reminds me, riding in a cab the other night I heard a R&B/Hip-Hop song that licensed the melody from "Islands in the Stream." It was probably the most crass thing I'd ever heard in my life; yet, suddenly, so many things made sense.

If God had a butt, what would it look like, and would you want to smell it?

No, no no. "God" is ALL of us, and everything else in the universe too. The entire universe is "God". We humans are mere particles, atoms, quarks... within the unimaginable body of 'god' that is the universe.

Also, how many of you have read about Peace Pilgrim?

if god is our father then it might be more apt to say that we are one of 'them'- (elohim is plural)

You might be interested to know that Fnarf is a minor deity.

So long as there's a tie-dyed light rail car, I'm down.

He doesn't take the bus. But he's kinda got a soft spot for a nice Mercedes.

You are doing "overheard" wrong.

This is a lot of attention for a stupid reference to a 16-year-old song. Seriously, it was released in 1995.

I hate the lack of subjunctive in that lyric.

My fondness for Mudede has now increased to detectable levels.
Posted by Violet_DaGrinder on August 10, 2011 at 11:22 PM · Report this
... fighting the urge to write a blog post in the style of Mudede (homage, perhaps, or parody) which extends this conversation. References to dogs as stupid entities. To his children, certainly (and his parenting). An oblique reference to 'This God stuff' or similar construction ... etc etc

You might be interested to know that Jubilation T. Cornball was once a humorous and frequent commenter on Slog. Sadly, one day, his command to "release the hounds" against an itinerant guest Slogger backfired, and he was severely injured in the melee, resulting in a large amount of blood loss. Several heroic Sisters were on site and attempted artificial respiration, but it was too late, and Jubie lost a great amount of blood. After much therapy, he is able to type again and use the Internet, however his faculties are limited to trolling Fnarf in a rather un-humorous manner. Donations may be made to Jubie's therapy at Washington Mutual account #3825-968.
