Not everyone thinks the same things are funny, but everyone can agree (and if you can’t, please leave the room right now) that Happiness Wednesday should include a good laugh or two. And since this Happiness Project is hosted on God Blogging, the two funny things I found last night surfing the Web are sort-of God related.
The first speaks for itself —- a dog in the worshipful posture of believers everywhere, bowing to The Almighty Bone.
The second is words not pictures, but very funny if you’re: 1. Christian; 2. an atheist with “intense” Christians in your circle of friends/family; or 3. a person who appreciates satire. Jonathan Acuff runs a blog called “Stuff Christians Like.” He describes himself as a Christian attempting to be a satirist.
“The goal of the site is to clear away the clutter of Christianity so we can see the beauty of Christ and I try to do that using satire as a vehicle,” he wrote in an e-mail. I don’t know if he’s successful in that goal, but many of his posts (which are being compiled/used as fodder for Acuff’s upcoming book of the same name) are laugh-out-loud funny, especially if – like me – you’ve spent much time around Jesus folk. I’d never be able to come up with the hundreds of things he says Christians like, but when I read them, I realize the guy is spot-on. Especially, with this post, which is the one that will brighten up your Happiness Wednesday. But if it doesn’t, that’s ok – I forgive you.
