George and God
George wanted to perform a leap of faith to prove to his friends that God does exist, so they all drove up to nearby Mount Sarcasm. At the top of the plateau they stopped and all got out and George says I will prove to you once and for all that God is real.
The friends all look at each other and laugh… one guy says Soooooo, let me get this straight…ya gonna jump of this mountain with no parachute and hope that this almighty is gonna catch ya?
Yes says George full of confidence.
The friends all laugh louder this time and goad George on to do the jump. One guy by the name of Sid says Hey George, since ya gonna die, can I have ya boots?
George sneered at the remark, ran towards the edge of the mountain and leapt off.
On the way down he gets very disconcerted that God had not shown up yet to save him and soon realises that he is going to die any second. His last vocal was OH, GOD HELP MEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeee…thud!
The friends looked over the rim and Sid says Well, I guess I get those boots after all huh! The other friends smiled but could not believe that George actually did it. So they all got into the car and drove off…not even stopping to get the boots of their departed friend.
White light and suddenly George wakes up in heaven…where he meets God.
George looks up at God and said Why the heck didst thou forsake me oh lord?
God looked at George, smiled gently, and said
My son, you shouted OH, GOD HELP MEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeee…but you forgot to say PLEASE
