Presbyterian Jedi




Personally, I think this explains a lot of why Anakin started down the path of the dark side of covenant theology and paedobaptism.

(Ok, actually this is a screen shot of a Chinese bootleg copy of Episode III where Anakin’s words “I was just appointed by the Jedi Council” were translated into Chinese and then re-translated into English for subtitles and this is what you ended up with)

But then again, it makes about as much sense as some modern Bible translations…

Presbyterian Brains

So this guy goes into the doctor’s office one day with a headache.

The doctor looks him over, and says, “I got bad news and good news for you.”

The guy asks, “What’s the bad news?”

“Your brain is in bad shape, you’re going to need a brain transplant.”

“That’s pretty bad news. What’s the good news?”

“Today’s your lucky day, I’ve got a good assortment of donor brains to choose from.”

“How much is this going to cost me to get a brain transplant?”

“Acutally, we price brains by weight and type.  It looks like you’re going to need about 10 pounds of brains.”

“So, what is 10 pounds of brains going to cost me?”

“As I said, it depends of what type you want.  I can give you 10 pounds of Methodist brains for about $100.  On the other hand, 10 pounds of Baptist brains will run you about $200.”

“Well, ever since I saw Dr. Ligon Duncan perform at the Together for the Gospel conference I’ve been thinking about becoming a Presbyterian.  How much would that cost me?”

“Hmmm…  10 pounds of Presbyterian brains is going to cost at least $10,000.”

“What!!!  That’s outrageous!!!  Why do you charge so much for Presbyterian brains?”

“Oh come on, do you have any idea how many Presbyterian donors you have to find to get 10 pounds of brains?”

(with apologies to Dr. Duncan and Presbyterians everywhere)

The Presbyterian Connection

For this week’s installment of “Friday Funnies”, I present a little-known fact that is either funny or frightening (you choose):

Take the letters of the word:

p r e s b y t e r i a n s

do some rearranging, and you can spell:

b r i t n e y  s p e a r s

Now the question is, did God predestine for that to happen?



On other fronts, I discovered CBS keeps an archive of all of David Letterman’s “Top Ten” lists:
