  •  Reminds me of a joke I heard (21+ / 0-)

    years ago. (This is the longer version)

    Very religious, anti-govt guy gets told to evacuate because a storm is coming and everything is going to flood.

    "I'm not going anywhere, God will save me."

    So of course, he doesn't leave, and of course, it floods. One of his neighbors comes by in a rowboat as the water starts rising, and offers to take him to a shelter.

    "I'm not going anywhere, God will save me."

    Water gets higher. Guy goes to second story, and another, larger, CG motorboat comes by, offers to take him to dry land.

    "I'm not going anywhere, God will save me."

    Finally, the guy is on his roof, clinging to the chimney, and a helicopter drops a line for him to grab.

    "No! I'm not going anywhere, God will save me."

    OK, says the helicopter rescue team, don't say we didn't try.

    Water finally covers his house and of course, the guy dies.

    He gets met at the Pearly Gates by Gabriel, who says the Big Guy wants to see him RIGHT NOW. Well good, says the guy, I want to talk to him too!

    God lets out an almighty shout - "Why the hell are you here? Are you STUPID???"

    "But, but, but, I was good, I believed, I waited for you to save me. Where were you?"

    God finally blows up.
    "WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU??? I warned you, and sent you two boats and a helicopter! You have got to be the DUMBEST shit I've ever seen!"

    And promptly banished him to hell.

    One of the few jokes I can remember.
