    Indeed. Makes my head spin @@@. Mo just sounds like my friend cowlord!!

  2. percyf says:

    The Koran, it appears, is full of fertiliser.

  3. tfkreference says:

    Author, you’ve captured the essence of the frustration of arguing with believers.

  4. Anonymous says:

    Questions often causes problems
    When they points to inconvenient solutions
    When it is written
    The author is smitten
    Like the dead horse, he is beaten

  5. Laird says:

    I love that last line! I am so going to steal it!

  6. Son of Glenner says:

    I agree with Laird – what a great punchline!

  7. Anonymous says:

    Bravo for the punchline, the Sunny Side of Bull Bunk!

  8. The bonus says:

    Mo is like an robot that has failed the Turing test, apart from the bullshit…which is entirely indistinguishable from human bullshit.

  9. Anonymous says:

    The punchline shows us the Sunny Side of Bull Bunk (Buffalo, Bear, whatever).

  10. Michael says:

    Excellent as always, Author.

  11. macha says:

    You could almost transpose the voice bubbles left to right and it would be an equally good nail on the head job.

  12. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    macha, I must say that a nail on a head job sounds painful. Just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes..

  13. bear47 says:

    Author, I really enjoy your work, but this has to rank among your absolute best ever. Yes, I also may borrow your punch line, as it is excellent.

  14. machigai says:

    Where’s Nassar?

  15. Someone says:

    How easy it is to believe in lies, with that logic. I tip my proverbial hat.

  16. macha says:

    AoS. Ouch!

    Actually, I meant the head is on the nail and the former would be skewering both Kooran and Bibble.

    Sorry for obscurification.

  17. Son of Glenner says:

    machigal: Nassar is now remaining anonymous. I think that is quite wise, considering the quality of his/her verse. This week’s is one of his/her worst!

  18. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    machigai, I think Nassar is flaunting his modesty this week. The limerickish by Anonymous above bears the mark of the bard of The C&B.

    macha, forgive my puerile mind πŸ™‚

    Edit to add: Ninja’d by SoG. Great minds and all that.

  19. Son of Glenner says:

    AoS: Great minds indeed! Nassar has in fact been anonymous for several weeks. You can check if you look back at recent archives; the distinctive style is still there, albeit anonymised.

  20. Rebecca says:

    ‘eat shit!’ … ‘ok, just give me and my compost heap a couple of years to turn it into an eggplant.’

    β€˜eat shit!’ … β€˜ok, just give me and my compost heap a couple of years to turn it into an eggplant.’

    Then sell the eggplant and buy something edible?

  22. macha says:

    AoS. Not puerile at all, just my obscure SOH.

    Actually the nail idea reminds me of jokes about Jesus (walks into a motel, throws 3 nails on the counter and says “can you put me up for the night?”).

    Or is that in really bad taste? I haven’t come across any involving Mo, but I suppose they’d be in REALLY bad taste (involving young brides, perhaps?).

  23. Smee says:

    Macha: good question. Is it possible to say something that’s bad taste about imaginary beings?

  24. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    Mo goes to the doctor. “Doc, I keep having hallucinatory episodes where the Angel Jibrael gives me messages from Allah”.
    “I see,” says the doctor, “I’ll refer you to a brain specialist for tests as soon as possible”.
    No thanks, doc, that won’t be necessary” Mo replies.
    “So why are you here?” asks the doctor.
    “Well, I think I can use the hallucinations to good advantage, but I’ve got a terrible memory; by the next morning I’ve forgotten most of the details, and I can’t write them down as I’m illiterate,” says Mo, “so I was wondering, if I have any more episodes can I borrow your secretary?”

    OK, a piss-poor joke but I never claimed to be Author.

  25. Son of Glenner says:

    AoS: Not that bad!

    Anyway better than most of Nassar’s verses!

  26. Some Dude says:

    Very good one, Author. You got me laughing at the ending punchline.

    This is why satire is important: whenever valid arguments against your deeply held beliefs make you cling to them even more, a good laugh can at least shake a few neurons in your brain.

  27. Someone says:

    AoS, I see your bad joke and raise you this:
    In Christianity, faith can move mountains.
    In Islam, it’s the other way around.

  28. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    Someone, in Islam mountains can move faith? Sorry, but I don’t get it.
    I’d have thought that Christians believe faith can move mountains, Islamists agree but prefer to use TNT.
    Apparently, neither side understands plate tectonics.

  29. Someone says:

    Acolyte, my joke was an abstruse reference to the phrase ‘If the mountain will not come to Muhammad, then Muhammad must go to the mountain’.
    So mountains can move faith, or at least the faithful.

    I did say it was bad.

  30. One Mug says:

    One of your best. And, they could switch sides of the bed. AND, what are they doing in bed together? Hahahaha…

  31. HelenaHandbasket says:

    The prophet (PBUH) was out walking with his wife, hand in hand in the garden. She turned to him and said
    “Oh great one, the people are spreading horrible rumors about you”.
    “Oh yes? ” He replied, “Such as what?” ”
    “They say that you are a paedophile!”
    “Paedophile? That’s a big word for a nine year old”

  32. Anonymous says:

    HH – cracker!

    BTW, I love your nym, and seriously considered it for myself, before you appeared. Sadly, I felt it would be misleading as to my gender, which is, of course, only a social construct.

  33. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    Helena, much kudos for that one.

  34. Anonymous says:

    mohammed had me mom. ohm dam me.

    I’d rather have a question I can’t answer than an answer I can’t question.
