From our Humor Department:
“You, Moses, heed Me.”
Moses stared at the burning bush and thought: Okay, a bush on fire but does not burn up. – A talking burning bush. Check.
“I have good news, and bad news.”
Moses is beginning to have a bad feeling about this.
“You, Moses, will lead the people of Israel out from bondage. If the Pharaoh refuses to release them I will smote Egypt with a rain of frogs.”
“Frog legs are a gourmet specialty,” Moses thinks. He ponders the implications of that.
“You, Moses, will lead the people of Israel to the promised land. If the pharaoh blocks your way I will smote Egypt with a plague of locusts.”
Now that’s more like it. The Egyptians won’t like that at all.
“If the Pharaoh’s army pursues you, I will part the waters of the Red Sea to open your path to the promised land.”
Moses is stunned. He stammers, “That’s, that’s fantastic, I can’t believe it!” Then he shudders. “How bad is the bad news?”
“You, Moses, must write the Environmental Impact Statement.”
