Actually, shouldn't that twabble go in the Adult, Political or Religious Twabble thread anyway?

No. That thread was closed and locked. And, the twabble was not really offensive (not that there aren't people who can take offense, to ANYTHING).

I told something similar to a few friends; they laughed. So, I reworked it to twabble form and posted (lucky you :P ).

Oh geez, now you folks have gone and reminded me that I've been hanging on to this one since the adult twabble thread was closed. It would have fit perfectly there, since it covers all three of the "forbidden subjects".
It's not intended to offend, and it doesn't have H8 4 U, or XXX in the title, so it should be fine. I just think it's funny, and that it somehow has a slight ring of truth to it.


The GOP ran God for president. He won of course, despite being caught smoking crack with four male hookers in a restroom.

One of our state senators filed a lawsuit against God. No joke.

I'm not sure which is the worst blasphemy. But, smearing God with the taint of the current GOP is probably your biggest ticket to Hell. :wink:

Now,
i double-dog dare you to replace God, in that twabble, with Mohamed or Allah.

Oh, ASID. If I only had a nickel for every time you banished me to hell. :twisted: Why I'd have like a whole quarter by now. :)
I don't think that the twabble would ring as true for me if I replaced god with another deity, so I hope that this will satisfy you for now.

Allah was broke. So he started posing in pictures for tips. Of course his followers beheaded him for depicting himself.

That's pretty good, but I'd stay out of The Netherlands, if I were you. :wink:

In Indonesia, where 'allah' is the word for 'God', the courts have just ruled that Catholics may legally say 'allah', which caused several churches to be burned. Message: Don't dis the towelheads.

Mr. Strawman, I request some clarification. Our last moderator closed down the thread for offensive twabbles I set up, quoting:

"Rather than set up a literary red light district in an attempt to contain troublesome twabbles, I think it's a much better idea to just not post any."

We have clearly passed back into posting "troublesome twabbles". What do you want the forum to do? Stop posting said Troublesome Twabbles, or continue?

I'm trying to pose this as a clear cut question, because some have handily ignored the last 3 warnings you posted.

Thanks for your guidance! Even your reprimands are funny.

Gee, Tom, this moderator business is tricky. I thought the threads were kind of massing on the border like India and Pakistan, so I was trying to be multilateral like Hillary, and hint at future sanctions with a moveable deadline and a warning for all to take their meds (which I really think might work in Iran and N Korea, if Hillary could just bring herself to admit that she takes hers). Plus, ASID's observation that God wouldn't accept the GOP nomination is funny.

Anyway, the island nation of St. Thomas has requested that the security council take action. So my ruling is that you may no longer post comments that contain :twisted: .

This is a metaphysical ruling. Here's how it works: If you are writing a post and feel that it needs a :twisted: to perfectly express your meaning, then you have crossed into Pakistan, and our secret UN drones will take you out, along with any innocent civilians you may have convinced to stand next to you.

Are we clear?

Ooh, a metaphysical ruling! I like it!
For the record, I was not offended, and I thought several of them were funny. But, I also saw that some more religious people than I could be pretty pissed.

Thanks for the ruling!

Hmmm. Time-traveling autoeroticism. That was in The Time Traveler's Wife. Weird book, too.

But... if you already had it, why'd you need to get it? Conversely, you went back to give it to yourself, so that you could be immune and not get it, so that you couldn't go back to give it to yourself.

I came back from the future and removed the :twisted: I had put at the end of my post, so that I could reverse the deletion that I afterwards was forced to execute as Justice of the Peace.
