image for God Gives Up Acts of God for Lent This Year
Insurance companies have refused to cover recent acts of godlessness

The billions of people whose lives get disrupted, sometimes maimed and even terminated by acts of god like hurricanes, tornados, tsunamis, fallen trees, meteors, airplanes and flocks of geese will be relieved to learn that God has announced that acts of god will be given up bt the godhead, heart fingers and toes this Lent.

The age old practice of offering up a sacrifice during the ancient Christian season of Lent in preparation for the joyous celebration of New Life at Easter is something that mere mortals normally do and usually have to do with things like bon bons, jujubes or the very refreshing Thin Mint.

The unprecedented idea of a divine sacrifice for the good of humanity involving salvation from real troubles unlike Jesus' lame idea of saving people from the very things they like most to do- er, SINS has almost as high an approval rating as Obama.

God hopes that as the 40 days proceed without cataclysm the people of earth will give credo where credo is due.
