Clancy and I did laundry on Sunday. I hadn’t realized that Clancy needed to use my phone to call her mother (who is about to leave the country), so when she told me to bring something to do at the laundromat, I figured my phone would be sufficient. When she went outside to make her call, I had nothing to do. Fortunately, though, there was a WATCHTOWER in on a table. On the cover was a picture of flames with the test “SHOULD YOU BE AFRAID OF HELL?”

The answer, it turned out, was “No.”

I never had any idea what the Jehova’s Witness folks (who make the Watchtower) thought about Hell, but there’s no way I would have guessed that judging by the cover.

    I once had a t-shirt that mocked the various religions by characterizing their views as variants of the phrase, “Shit happens.” So, for example, Catholicism teaches that, if shit happens, you deserved it; and Protestantism teaches that shit wouldn’t happen if you had only worked harder. The entry for Jehovah’s Witnesses was, “Knock, knock! Shit happens.” I think that’s hilarious.
