Bibles Be Trippin’

This is a real book by Jocelyn & Alayne Ingram and it’s offensive as hell (at least to anyone who finds things on the Internet offensive):

I have to read more… someone put this in all hotel rooms. It’s way more interesting than the Gideons version.

      I just read that article about R. Crumb’s book. One of the quotes in the article is astonishing:

      “It seems wholly inappropriate for what is essentially God’s rescue plan for mankind.” said Mike Judge, of the Christian Institute, a religious think-tank.

      The bible is God’s rescue plan for mankind? Rescue from what? His own creation? Why don’t these peoples’ heads explode?

        “It seems wholly inappropriate for what is essentially God’s rescue plan for mankind.” said Mike Judge, of the Christian Institute, a religious think-tank.

        Oh shock and horror. It sounds like someone illustrated some Bible verses that believers never bothered to not gloss over before. Well, now it;’s here, live and in your kitchen, compliments of R. Crumb.

        Dude sounds like he knows what he’s talking about. He sounds very authoritative. Citation please. Whooops everything falls apart all of the sudden when we ask for a citation please.. Well, that was easy. What a maroon.

      What I find hilarious is that the article on the Telegraph has no comments and it was published in October 2009. Can you imagine the same article about a pornographic bible on one of our online news sites being ignored so by the prude majority?

        Or maybe they closed & deleted commenting?

    Now Cain said to his brother Abel, “Let’s go out to the field.” While they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother Abel and killed him. And forevermore Cain’s dead brother was known as Disabel.

      So you’re saying that he’s now disabeled for all eternity?

        That’s what happens when your heavenly father is an enabeler.

    This just looks really dumb. There is nothing clever about the excerpt above.

    • Artor

      It’s better than the source material.

    I would, instead, suggest the lolcat Bible.

      How about the Brick Testament?

    I always suspected that Cain and Abel were the predecessors of liberals and conservatives, respectively.

    I find it hilarious. My bar for “offensive” in humor is a lot higher than some people’s on the internet, though. Some of the critiques I’ve read make me wonder if even Mark Twain would have had a chance if he had been dogged by certain internet PC pushers. I think humor should offend some people. It’s a great way to get people talking.
