Religious Joke

I found this online somewhere a couple of months ago:

I was walking across a bridge one day and I saw a man standing on the
edge about to jump. I ran over and said, "Stop! Don't do it!"
"Why shouldn't I?" he asked.
"There's so much to live for."
"Yeah? Like what?"
"Are you religious?"
"Yes," he said.
"Me, too! What religion are you?"
"Unitarian Universalist."
"Me, too! Are you restorationist or ultra-universalist?"
"Me, too! New England Convention or Philadelphia Convention?"
"New England."
"Me, too! Transcendentalist or biblicist?"
"Me, too! Broad Street Group or Free Religious Association?"
"Free Religious Association."
"Me, too! Institutional Free Religious Association or Scientific Free
Religious Association?"
"Scientific Free Religious Association."
"Me, too! Are you theist or humanist?"
"Depends on what you mean by theist," he said.
"Me, too!" I said. "Are you oriented more toward supernatural theism
or process theism?"
"Process theism," he said.
"Me, too!"
"Do you prefer Charles Hartshorne's philosophical panentheism or Henry
Nelson Wieman's naturalistic theism?"
"Hartshorne's philosophical panentheism," he said.
I yelled, "Die, heretic scum!," and pushed him off.

Medley - A Dream in the Forest & The Minute March

The first half of this medley was written by the Paraguayan guitarist Agustin Barrios and in English is called A Dream in the Forest. The second part was written by myself and is called The Minute March, and if you can play it cleanly in under a minute, I'd say you're a pretty fair guitarist.

I struggled over whether to play this on steel string or nylon. It sounds fine to me either way. The tuning high to low is:

D# (1st String)





C# (6th String)

If you tune your guitar down a half step, and then tune the 5th and 6th string down another whole step lower yet, you'll be there.

Please spread the word about my new business venture. If you know a publisher or an author interested in self-publishing (which seems all the rage right now), I'd very much appreciate it if you'd send them the link to my website.

Get Your Walmart Casket Here!

Click here to see their marvellous inventory:

Walmart Sells Caskets

I couldn't believe it when I heard this, but it's not a joke. Walmart actually sells beds for the dead online as cheap as $995!!! But apparently you have to supply your own plot and vault, and let's face it, that takes all the fun out of casket shopping.
