    Does God Have a Sense of Humour?

    In the 'Passion' thread, Brucie asked the above in:

So why you may ask, does God only influence rather than control? Does God have a sense of humour?
    I thought this prolly deserved a thread of its own. So what do you all reckon?

    Take a look at this: http://www.mcauley.acu.edu.au/~yuri/jokes.html

    (I expect this thread to have some real gems for 'Best of 2004').

    Do I have to join the dots on that one? Here is a hint. Have a look at the time elapsed between my first post and the second one.

    so you are saying that God's sense of humour is revealed when nothing exists in the world, as demonstrated by the catcus rolling in a desert

    and that september 11 is the start of this joke

    I do not get it at all, and am still confused. Can you explain?

    Perhaps it would help if you realise that it is a tumbleweed that is rolling through the desert, not a cactus.

    You see, God has a complex sense of humour. He can't laugh at a simple knock-knock joke. He requires complex irony which seems awry to you and me. All we can hope is that God had his good laugh and a tragedy such as this will not happen again.

    If this doesn't help, I don't know what else I can say.

    Sure, everyone loves a good joke, and I guess we were made in His image. Wow, imagine a world without laughter? That puts a dampener on your day.

    Ha! That reminds me. Why was it harder for God to create man than to create woman?

    God is also misanthropic, hence samspade.

    A little crude, but that doesn't seem to matter much in here. Everyone knows that man became the dominant gender due to his mathematical superiority over woman. We can count to 21!
