"Begin at the beginning,and go on till you come to the end: then stop." (Lewis Carroll, 1832-1896)

Alice came to a fork in the road. "Which road do I take?" she asked."Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat."I don't know," Alice answered."Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

"So long as I get somewhere," Alice added as an explanation. "Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."

"All right," said the Cat; and this time it vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end of the tail, and ending with the grin, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone. "Well! I've often seen a cat without a grin," thought Alice; "but a grin without a cat! It's the most curious thing I ever saw in my life!"

I am diagonally parked in a parallel universe. Like Arthur Dent from "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy", if you do not have a Babel Fish in your ear this blog will be completely unintelligible to you and will read something like this: "boggle, google, snoggle, slurp, slurp, dingleberry to the power of 10". Fortunately, those who have had the Babel Fish inserted in their ear, will understood this blog perfectly. If you are familiar with this technology, you will know that the Babel Fish lives on brainwave radiation. It excretes energy in the form of exactly the correct brainwaves needed by its host to understand what was just said; or in this case, what was read. The Babel Fish, thanks to scientific research, reverses the problem defined by its namesake in the Tower of Babel, where a deity was supposedly inspired to confuse the human race by making them unable to understand each other.

Baby Got Book

I thought this video clip was a parody about how shallow and braindead religion can make some people but apparently the DJ called "Southpaw" is trying to mix comedy with his religious beliefs. He does makes a pertinent political and social comment concerning the "consumerist nature" of christianity. That is: "the more is better or big is better mantra", though I am not sure that this message is intentional.

Parody is a form of satire that imitates another work of art in order to ridicule it. Cultural movements can also be parodied. Such works are also sometimes colloquially referred to as spoofs. This video works as a spoof on the modern fundamentalist christian movement.

The video is so bad it is the equivalent of intentional mockery. It is a parody of fundamentalist christianity. If this video is meant to proselytise, I suggest he has a brighter future as a comedian rather than as a preacher.

His followers could look at this as good clean fun. It might appeal to younger mindless bible thumpers.

Remember, satire and parody to an Athiest is faith to a believer.

Wow, I just noticed I spelled Atheist wrong.

I gave someone crap on my blog for doing that.

I have to do 50 Hail No ones right now to make up for it.
