A laugh of Biblical proportions
So I've mentioned in some of my previous blogs that Mr. Riot Kitty works with some...interesting people.
He also works with some less than intelligent people.
Some of you might know the Bible verse illustrating a parable about faith - meaning a little faith can go a long way - but just for giggles, I googled it. Mainly because I couldn't remember what part was about a mustard seed or a mulberry seed or a mulberry bush...(incidentally, wtf? They had mulberry bushes in Biblical times in the Middle East? Does that sound very Dr. Seuss to you also, or am I just thinking of that book, And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street?)
Anyway, here's the verse:
And the Lord said, "If you had faith like a mustard seed, you would say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and be planted in the sea'; and it would obey you. "
So Mr. Riot Kitty has been spared ever having to go to church as a kid, and he didn't know that verse. Today, after getting coffee, with a confused look on his face, he repeats this story that he overheard at work:
Guy #1 to Guy #2 during lunch: "So there's this story in the Bible where Jesus uses a miracle to kill a tree."
Need I say anything else? Other than I hope he isn't reproducing and sending more people to the shallow end of the gene pool? Am I mean? Ah, fuck it, I don't care if it's mean. It's a reasonable thing to hope for, don't you think?
