blade on the feather, wind off the trees, swing, swing together with your backs between your knees

god moves in not so mysterious ways

i was flipping through my online bible looking for a christmas tale to tell when i discovered something interesting: god started using that flood punishment very early on in his career. in fact, he decided at one point to drown everybody:

he let one guy in on the secret, though, and told him to build a big ship called an ark, and to get on it with his wife and kids and two of every animal and bird on the earth.

the guy's name was noah. you can see him in the photo above rounding up the animals while he biffs and baffs at his planks.

that ark must have been something, right? two of every animal?

two diplodocuses? they were 20 metres high and 135 metres long. and they were just one of over 700 different types of dinosaur. that makes 1,500 dinosaurs alone on the boat.

and keeping these suckers happy on a cruise for 40 days and 40 nights must have been no joke, right? i can't imagine them being fobbed off with a game of deck quoits.

the moral of the noah story? well, if you do happen to be one of the 80,000 guys drowned in the recent flood then don't feel too bad about it. it could have been worse. you could have been sharing a cabin on the ark with a family of diplodocuses.

Mike from Canada asks:

Wot the bleedin' 'ell is a deck quoit?
and mike from canada calls himself canadian? tsk.
Deck quoits are sophisticated sexual paraphenalia. If those dinosaurs had opposable thumbs, I'll bet they'd have been happy enough with them . . .
