Ready Thyself (a tid-bit of interest?)

     Have you ever wondered what would happen if Noah was
building the Ark for the Flood in today's times? What kind of problems might
surface? Remember Bill Cosby's spoof(3 parts) on Noah. This is in the same
Spirit. Enjoy:
                        "Ready Thyself"

        And the Lord said unto Noah: "Where is the Ark which I have
commanded thee to build?"
        And Noah said unto the Lord: "Verily, I have three carpenters off
ill. The gopher wood supplier hath let me down - yea, even though gopher
wood hath been on order for nigh unto 12 months."
        "What can I do, Oh Lord?"
        And God said unto Noah: "I want that Ark finished even after seven
days and seven nights."
        And Noah said: "It will be so."

        And it was not so. And the Lord said unto Noah: "What seemeth to be
the trouble this time?"

        And Noah said unto the Lord: "Mine subcontractor hath gone bankrupt.
The pitch which Thou commandest me to put on the outside and on the inside
of the Ark hath not arrived. The plumber hath gone on strike. Shem, my son
who helpeth me on the Ark side of the business, hath formed a pop group with
his brothers, Ham and Japheth."

        "Lord, I am undone." 

        And the Lord grew angry and said: "And what about the animals, male
and female of every sort, that I ordered to come unto thee to keep their
seed alive on the face of the Earth?"

        And Noah said: "They have been delivered to the wrong address but
should arriveth on Friday."

        And the Lord said: "How about the unicorns, and the fowls of the air
by sevens?"

        And Noah wrung his hands and wept, saying: "Lord, unicorns are a
discontinued line; thou cans't not get them for love nor money. And fowls of
the air are sold only in half dozens. Lord, Lord, Thou knowest how it is."

        And the Lord in His Wisdom said: "Noah, my son, I knowest. Why else
dost thou think I will cause a food to descend upon the Earth?"

British Architects. (it is undated)

                {o o}
Just for today, I will let go of anger,
Just for today, I will let go of worry,
Today, I will count my many blessings,
Today, I will do my work honestly,
Today, I will be kind to every living thing.

                         pride is what keeps us there"
