  1. Mockingbird says:

    Well said Barmaid, the koran is crap. There is more wisdom in “The Beano”.

  2. Someone says:

    In my opinion, the pages of the Koran are good for wiping your anus after defecating, if you happen to be short on toilet paper.
    But of course, Mo would only hear “the pages of the Koran are good”.

  3. jb says:

    I’m sure if you read Mein Kampf carefully you could find entire paragraphs that were “wise-sounding”. Wisdom isn’t that hard to come by. Even the worst people can say things that are insightful and true.

  4. M27Holts says:

    Aren’t islamic scholars claiming koranic prediction of covid 19?

  5. Mockingbird says:

    M27 – Of course they are, so are The Flintstones.

  6. Oozoid says:

    What do Jesus and Mo and the barmaid make of the ‘strangers only’ and 10pm Covid curfew?

  7. JaneP says:

    The Barmaid rules OK!

  8. Forteatwo says:

    Not a word in the Koran in praise of intelligence or application of logic (or in the bible for that matter). That would be it’s demise.

  9. Jveeds says:

    I have to admit, the Qur’an does have a lot of colorful. almost entertaining depictions of what will happen to apostates and deniers. “Lurid fantasies” is the perfect phrase.

  10. Federico Bär says:

    What a nice example of “nested out-of-contexts”!
    Apart from the wisdom itself, of course.

  11. hotrats says:

    The barmaid has such an easy job when it comes to demolishing the boys’ smug certainties. The words fish, barrel, and shooting, come to mind.

  12. MattR says:

    Lovely. Reminds me of the film poster that quotes a review: “a great film”; when the actual review says: “wants to be a great film, but it is not”.

  13. M27Holts says:

    There is more “wisdom” in any book by Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchett than the savage witterings of a seventh century knobhead who was very likely mentally impaired in some way….

  14. eoinkenobi says:

    Yes, context is everything. The first four words of the Koran are ‘There is no god’.

  15. Prfesser says:

    M27Holts, accurate predictions are easy if one makes up the prediction after the fact or event.

  16. postdoggerel says:

    M27Holts, I predict Trump will get covid-19. What kind of a god would allow a thing like this to happen?

  17. Son of Glenner says:

    postdoggerel: What took god so long?

  18. HaggisForBrains says:

    My prayers have been answered! There IS a god!

  19. Laripu says:

    The religious right, who habitually blame disease and hurricanes on homosexuality and feminism, will not find a biblical reason for Trump’s covid-19 infection.

    No, instead, they will blame “the deep state”, and it will somehow be Obama’s fault.

  20. Laripu says:

    By the way, will everybody recognize the hubristic inevitability of Trump getting covid-19?

    Isn’t this a powerful lesson in cause and effect? Won’t people learn from it?

    Naaah, of course not. What was I thinking?
    People are s.t.oo-oo.p.i.d.

  21. Troubleshooter says:

    Two useful things the Koran is good for:

    1. Doorstop
    2. Kindling

    No, I wouldn’t wipe myself with its pages, nor would I use them to roll a spliffie. Oh, and kindly note: same notation in re: the bible.

  22. Laripu says:

    This is too funny not to share, but it saddens me.
    I can hardly bring myself to believe that a human being with a brain could actually seriously think this nonsense.

    Scott C Waring looked at a 2015 photo from Mars.
    He saw an object that looked to him like a book.
    He thought that it must be – not only a book- it must be a bible.
    He concluded that this is evidence that … wait for it … that aliens believe in religion.

    Evidence! A rock that looks like a book! And it’s therefore a bible! On Mars! Aliens!

    People are as stupid as Mars rocks.
    To quote Bob Dylan “we’re idiots babe, it’s a wonder we can even feed ourselves”.

  23. M27Holts says:

    Laripu. I concur….it is a rock that appears to be a book…and of course if it is a book then it must be a bible and not the kama-sutra or lady chatterleys lover because those martians are religious… when everybody knows that those bug eyed aliens are sex mad with anal probes ready to deploy at every opportunity…hoho…

  24. Mockingbird says:

    We studied the rock / book under an electro-magnifier. It shows that the cover is marked “DON’T PANIC”. Any suggestions?

  25. Laripu says:

    Mockingbird, that’s clearly a reference to Pope John Paul II, when he said, from the balcony of the Vatican:

    Be not afraid
    (of Vogon Jeltz
    as his ship approaches
    through the asteroid belt)
    Be not afraid
    (just ’cause J & M lied
    The bible is funnier
    than the Hitchhiker’s Guide)

    Obviously (!) the aliens are Catholic, as was prostetnic Vogon Jeltz.

  26. M27Holts says:

    Could be the instruction manual from that world war two bomber that was reported as being found on mars…

  27. Mockingbird says:

    Pope John Paul said this?
    Laripu, That cannot be
    You’re taking the piss
    sounds “George & Ringo” to me.

  28. Laripu says:

    Mockingbird: he said part of it.

    But thanks for the reply in rhyme. You’re clearly someone who knows how to talk to people. 🙂

  29. Mockingbird says:

    ETERNAL WALL OF BULLSHIT is now the official title. If you log in below you will see Jesus and Mo are now very prominent contributors.

  30. Mockingbird says:

    Laripu – The bible is funnier
    than the Hitchhiker’s Guide. Oh, I just love it !
    The above only brings you back here, so google ETERNAL WALL OF BULLSHIT and click Jesus and Mo.

  31. M27Holts says:

    I see Trump has recovered due to miracles sent by err…god of abraham or so he claims…wonder if that same god presumably created the virus that has killed a lot of people….and they all can’t be sinners…can they? The POTUS is a whopper of quite astounding proportions….
