The Religious Humor Contest: What’s the funniest piece of scripture you’ve ever read?
What’s the funniest thing you’ve ever read in the Bible, Qur’an, or any other supposed communication from God endorsed by a current or past world religion/cult?
Submit responses in the comment section of this post between now and 11:59 PM on Sunday March 16 (which is, coincidentally, the day after the next international day of protest against the Cult of $cientology), Toronto time.
The winner will be determined by reader voting (one vote per reader account). A new post will be created on Monday March 17 (Toronto time) which will present all the nominees. Votes are to be submitted in the comment section of the Monday March 17 post, with voting beginning as of the opening of the post and ending at 11:59 PM on Thursday March 20, Toronto time. If voters would like to vote earlier, they can do it in the comment section of the current post, but they are advised to wait until the new post is created so that they can view all entries.
What’s the prize? The winner will receive the amazing honour of getting to determine The Frame Problem‘s first (and possibly only) God of the Day for Saturday March 22, 2008, and have their name (or pseudonym) and winning entry displayed in a special post on the 21st, along with a picture (if they provide one) of their deity of choice*.
I have submitted the first entry in the comment section, which can also be read here.
*Note: I reserve the right to chicken out of displaying an image if it seems reasonable to suspect that I may be terrorized by self-righteous psychotic delusional tyrants. In fact, I reserve the right to chicken out of anything if I think it could bring any real danger to myself or anyone else.
TO ALL BLOGGERS/WEBSITERS/FACEBOOKERS: Blessed are those who help promote this contest on their blog, website, and Facebook notes.
