Why I Hope God has a Sense of Humor

     Feast in the House of Simon, El Greco

"God is a comedian, playing to an audience too afraid to laugh." - H. L. Mencken

Matthew 26:6, "Now when Jesus was in Bethany, at the home of Simon the leper," 


Jesus: Hey Simon – what do you call a leper taking a bath? 
Simon: No idea Jesus, what?
Jesus: Stew!
All assembled: *groan*

  9. God's sense of humour? Sick, just like your joke, so it fits perfectly. But watch out. In this age of political correctness, you could be sued by a leper or even class action by a whole colony!
