  1. Why The Mona Lisa is Smiling?

    Via Kenneth Carlson, "Why The Mona Lisa is Smiling", appears on Investors Business Daily editorial cartoons dated May 19, 2006.

    Why Mono Lisa is Smiling

    Well, that pretty much explains it. I think she should probably be laughing out loud instead.

    On a related note, is there anyone other than me myself that have not watched the movie nor read the book on The Da Vinci Code? Probably one of the most talked about subject recently, and great opportunity to slip in gospel content in the conversation, but I am ashamed of myself who have not actually read the book.

    Any "executive summary", other than "you mean people actually believe this 'Da Vinci Code' nonsense?!?"

  2. Are You a Presby?

    Your church might be Presbyterian, if... True or not I have no comment on that, but it is just hilarious. Got a few young friends who are Presby, and I can imaging you can come up with a similar joke with the Anglicans. Anyway, my favourite one - "If the pastor refers to the 'youth of the church' and your grandma steps forward, your church might be Presbyterian".

  3. DAISY

    I saw this blog entry today and it is somehow hilarious (thus I also put it in the "humour" category). We all know Calvinism doctrine of TULIP, and we usually also joked about Armenians who based their doctrine on "daisy", i.e. plucking the petal mumbling "he loves me, he loves me not, he loves ..."

    But now someone actually came up parallel phrases to TULIP to make DAISY an acronym as well!

    D- Diminished Depravity
    A- Abrogated Election
    I- Impersonal Atonement
    S- Sedentary Grace
    Y- Yieldable Justification

    Such a good one...

    Apparently a new version of "God" has been released at version 6.0. It promises to be "softer, gentler and completely compatible", which I believe is the product of extensive market research on the majority of the user groups. Here is their press release: All-New God Version 6.0 Brought …

  6. Jesus Christ vs. Windows 95

    I found this classy piece of joke on the Internet. It must has been quite dated, as Windows 95 is already a history (not classified as a supported platform by Microsoft anymore). I don't agree with its claim 100%, but well, it is a joke. Let's compare Windows 95 against …
  7. The Top 15 Biblical Ways to Get a Wife

    While digging up the old emails from my archive, I found this joke sent to me in 1997 by a course mate of mine at uni. Find an attractive prisoner of war, bring her home, shave her head, trim her nails, and give her new clothes. Then she's yours. - (Deuteronomy …
  8. English Standard Version Jokes

    In MYC, Rod ran a little competition, requesting all the creative phrases and essays around ESV. My favourite goes something like this. A while ago was the RSV, which is the Real Simple Version. However, it was not easy to read so here comes the NIV, the Non-Intellecture Version. But …
