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:

Luke 17:6

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?

ah, he was probably talking about the fig tree. it is a curious story; Jesus sees a fig tree that has not produced fruit, though many people say it was out of season; he thereby curses the tree to never produce fruit again. later, the disciples pass the same way and see the fig tree has withered and died overnight.

with that said...Mr. Riot Kitty still needs to publish a book about the stuff they say over there because it is flat out hilarious.

Darth: I just found out about the fig tree! I still don't think the guy had all of his stories (or marbles) straight.

most people don't; the Bible is one of the most criticized, misrepresented, misquoted (and least read and followed...) books in existence!
