Laughter: The Universal Language – #162

Prelude to a modern retelling of Passover. 😜

Egyptian plagues

Moses was sitting in the Egyptian ghetto. Things were terrible. Pharaoh wouldn’t even speak to him. The rest of the Israelites were mad at him and making the overseers even more irritable than usual, etc. He was about ready to give up.

Suddenly a booming, sonorous voice spoke from above:

“You, Moses, heed me!Β  I have good news, and bad news.”

Moses was staggered. The voice continued:

“You, Moses, will lead the People of Israel from bondage.Β  If Pharaoh refuses to release your bonds, I will smite Egypt with a rain of frogs.”

“You, Moses, will lead the People of Israel to the Promised Land. If Pharaoh blocks your way, I will smite Egypt with a plague of locusts.”

“You, Moses, will lead the People of Israel to freedom and safety. If Pharaoh’s army pursues you, I will part the waters of the Red Sea to open your path to the Promised Land.”

Moses was stunned. He stammered, “That’s… that’s fantastic.Β  I can’t believe it! – But what’s the bad news?”

“You, Moses, must write the Environmental Impact Statement.”

Join me next week for a little Easter humour. Until then, please be well and be safe. ❀
