  1. I wanna buy a vowel

    I pray for archaeologists to stumble onto the vowel's in YHWH's name.
    I think that they will find them all and more. Or rather,
    I think if the archaeologists find the particklers,
    we need fear no evil, for the well never runs dry.

  2. Hebrews 10

    "All you have to do is buy a lottery ticket, and make sure you have picked the right numbers that they will pick tomorrow night, and we will be RICH!"

    That is an illustration of the SDA version of the "gospel, ...
