“Weeping and Gnashing of Teeth”

Just in, a joke from xnlover–just had to share it with you.

One Sunday after church, a little girl asked her fundamentalist grandmother a question about the sermon.

“Grandma, you know how, when they die, bad people go where there’s weeping and gnashing of teeth?”

“Yes, dear, that’s true,” the grandmother replied approvingly.

“What about old people who lost all their teeth?”

The grandmother thought for a moment and said, “You know that every word of Scripture must be fulfilled, my dear. God is going to give them brand new teeth.”

About Ron Goetz

My first wife used to say, "There's nothing so sacred that Ron won't pick it apart." My desire to be a pastor -- that was a temperamental mismatch. She was so patient. If my birth mother had lived somewhere else, maybe I would've become a cold case detective. But I would have had to be J instead of a P, I think. And that mid-life reevaluation, starting adolescence as a GARB fundamentalist and transitioning to a non-theist, that gave me an unusual skill set.

    Well of course! God’s going to give them “crowns” – but not to cast before the Throne in heaven – only teeth-crowns to gnash in hell!! ha! Maybe the weeping will be from oral-dental pain!

      First tlatc’s “something to chew on,” now these dental crowns! We need to form a team of comedy writers!

      I wonder if Letterman needs an overhaul of his team . . . I know, let’s start a private FB group for irreverent comedy writers.

      Good one, Marty!

      [Okay, that’s one, two, three. Hmm]

    Did you hear about the Buddhist who refused his dentist’s Novocain during root canal work because he wanted to transcend dental medication.


    • Ron Goetz says:

      (chuckle chuckle) (I guess I opened this up.) No Tom, I hadn’t heard aboaut the Buddhist who refused his dentist’s Novocain during a root canal work because he wanted to transcend dental medication.


      So, how’d it work out?

    I think Tom should take over the discussion and pre-empt the hard core writers.


So what are you thinking?
