En Passant: Joke

Well, at least some people on Conservapedia actually have a sense of humor.

An archaeologist was digging in the Negev Desert in Israel and came upon a casket containing a mummy, a rather rare occurance in Israel, to say the least. After examining it, he called the curator of the Israel museum in Jerusalem.

“I’ve just discovered a 3,000 year old mummy of a man who died of heart failure!” the excited scientist exclaimed.

To which the curator replied, “Bring him in. We’ll check it out.”

A week later, the amazed curator called the archaeologist. “You were right about both the mummy’s age and cause of death. How in the world did you know?”

“Easy. There was a piece of paper in his hand that said, ‘10,000 Shekels on Goliath’.”

    I quite liked that one. Mrs Trashbat was impressed that I actually told her a clean joke for once too…XD

    I read the bible literally, so I’m wondering how the shekels were stacked so that they may not be allowed to fall. I assume god did it.

    Well, according to Sisyphus over at Blogs4Brownback, electrons are actually angels.


    So I’d guess that He just told the angels in those shekels to flap their little wings a bit harder or something.

    Besides, I’m a bit skeptic about this whole “gravity” concept. I mean, is that mentioned specifically anywhere in the Bible? And has anyone ever *seen* gravity? I’m just asking!

    Gravity is the theory that asplains apples falling out of trees and stuff.

    Yeah, but couldn’t that just be the angels pulling them down to the earth?

    Shut up, Nazi.

    that sense of humor must have come at some cost – i see the user in question is officially “retired” from cp now. WTF?? did he jump or was he pushed..? we demand answers!!!!

    Good question, I didn’t see that coming. On the other hand, He’s not been blocked, and put the retirement templates up by himself. Maybe off-line life just caught up with him or something.

    He was a reasonable candidate for Sysop, and DeborahB (teenage mechanical plagiarist) just won the most recent contest instead. He might have decided it wasn’t a hospitable environment.
