Bathroom Monologue: What God Gave for Lent


“No, that’s not for Me,” said Our Lord. “That’s My son’s gig. I leave it unto him.”

“But why? Everyone else does it.”

“I gave up something for forty days once, but it went so poorly I had to promise not to do it again. No sense in tempting fate.”

“What did you give up?”

The whole of Heaven shook with His chuckle. “Dry land.”

  4. And here in Oz he frequently gives up rain for MORE than forty days at a time. And then provides the missing rain elsewhere in places where the miserable beggars don't appreciate it.
