Today's HIGHLY IRREVERENT computer funnygreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Be aware that this, while fairly funny is highly irreverent.
with that caveat:
Jesus and Satan have an argument as to which one is the better computer programmer.
This goes on for hours until they agree to have a contest.
God will be the judge.
They set themselves in front of their computers and go to work. They type furiously for several hours, lines of code streaming up the screen.
Seconds before the end of the competition, a bolt of lightning strikes, knocking out the electricity. Moments later, the power is restored, and God announces that the contest is over.
He asks Satan to show what he has come up with. Satan is visibly shaken. "I have nothing. I lost everything when the power went out." "Very well, then" God says. "Let's see if Jesus fared any better."
Jesus enters a command, and the screen comes to life in a vivid display, and the voices of an angelic choir pour forth from the speakers.
Satan is astonished. "But how? I lost everything, yet Jesus' program is intact! How did He do it?" God chuckled and said, "Jesus saves!"

In the middle of the forest was a hunterwho was suddenly confronted with a huge mean bear.In all his fears, his attempt to shoot the bear was unsuccessful.He turned away and started to run as fast as he could. Finally he ended up at the edge of a very steep cliff.
His hopes were dim. But, he got on his knees, opened his arms toward heaven and said, "My God! Please give this bear some religion!"
Then there was lightning in the air and the bear stopped just a few feet short of the hunter. The bear was puzzled and looked up in the air and said. My God! Thank you for the food I am about to receive...
