Irish comedian David O’Doherty recently had a stand up special on Comedy Central. Being quite the fan of the D.O.D., I tuned in and was delighted by his thoughts on God:
|David O’Doherty – Irish History|
God used to be huge where I come from. Like bigger than MySpace or R.Kelly. Not so much anymore. I think, to be honest, whatever people used to get from the Lord, I just get the same thing now from the Internet. Because they’re similar in that they’re, like invisible, but all around us. And they know freaking everything! That’s the advantage the Internet has over the Lord is that you can ask the internet quite specific questions. Like, we were always told as children “Ask God anything, God is always listening.” So I would be like, “God, why do bad people always seem to do so well in the world?” and God would be like “Well, David, here is a very ambiguous book.” But with the Internet, you can be much more specific. You know, be like “Did OMC have any hits apart from ‘How Bizarre’?” “No he did not.” Thank you Internet! Lord, look and learn! Can’t illegally download Deadwood off you, either.
Seriously, go check this guy out. Later in this special, he has a fake duet with Shakira. It’s pretty awesome.
