Default Re: What God did when He got bored ...

I've been re-reading one of my favorite books by PJ O'Rourke,
"All the Trouble In the World - The Lighter Side of Overpopulation, Famine, Ecological Disaster, Ethnic Hatred, Plague, and Poverty"

One of the beautiful spots O'Rourke visited to research his book was Somalia. He describes a country without a government - totally ruled by gangs. Somalia consists of 6 clans. Every member of every clan hates every member of every other clan.

It gets worse. Within each clan, of course, are families. And often, families within a clan are at war. When O'Rourke wrote this book (1994), the 2 leading Somali warlords were from the same clan.

So the Somalis have a joke:

"God was bored. So he created the universe. But that was boring, too. So He created Adam and Eve. But He was still bored. So God created the rest of the human race. And even then He was bored.

So God created the Somalis. He hasn't stopped laughing since."

I highly recommend any O'Rourke book for plenty of laughs.
