The Biggest Joke Book on Earth

By Carl S ~

Back in the 1960's there was a popular TV series called “Get Smart.” The show was a spoof of James Bond-type counter-espionage. Agent 86, a.k.a. “Smart,” was played by Don Adams. I didn't see many episodes, but I do remember a gag he often repeated. When Smart reported to the head of his agency, he would sometimes say things like, “Would you believe there were 200 of them?” There would be a long pause, and then, “Would you believe 100? What about 75?”

Would you believe this report: a guy fed 5000 men with 5 loaves of bread and two fishes? Well, would you believe 50 loaves and 200 fishes? Would you believe 500 men, and no women and children? Didn't you believe me when I told you he also walked on water? Would you believe me if I said the lake was frozen? Would you believe a man lived to be 400 years old, and then he built a gigantic boat, when any 100 year old man would have trouble building a ship model? What else?

It is with a heavy heart and a trembling hand that I write these words to you today. The last several days have witnessed an unprecedented rise in the levels of hatred and animosity on this blog. It is as if a giant rift has split the brotherhood of mankind asunder...

During times such as these, it is the children who bear the brunt of the suffering. It is for them that I sob brokenheartedly. With each unfeeling insult hurled, with every cruel barb traded, one of these little one's future is irreparably shattered. Alas, all is lost...

In spite of the grief it is causing me, I will continue to read the posts here, but know this-- every difference of opinion will send a fresh stream of tears coursing down my cheeks.

Be there a god? Let him smite me down; for in death I shall surely find welcome respite from my agony.
