The secret of why there is still a continuing presence of Gideon Bibles and not wank magazines in hotels which lone businessmen frequent was released under the "Freedom of Information Act" this morning.
The thin paper which the specially made King James Bibles are made of is almost identical to Rizla "roll your own joint" paper. The bibles which are the usual unreadable rubbish are very annoying to find in the drawers of hotel rooms.
An attempt by Hugh Heffer several years ago to sell them all and replace them with copies of Razzle was stopped when it was realised that the books were for rolling joints with.
"No copy of a Gideon Bible has ever been read but they are known to be unsaleable because of their far fetched content. No one has ever stolen one and that must mean something in itself", said a businessman yesterday. "What a rotten damned trick it is to put them in hotel rooms though. You see them and think, aha! someone has forgotten a book, then you realise it is all mumbo jumbo".
