Dave Allen's Thoughts On Religion

After his last hilarious you tube on Adam and Eve, shown on my previous post, I present Dave Allen's masterpiece on Religion and how a four year old boy was expected by a convent nun to understand several complex theological doctrines including the Trinity and Omnipresence.  It is an absolute riot. LOL

I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did - and of course it is all just tongue in cheek and innocent fun - I think, although Dave Allen did upset some religious people in his time.

Whilst writing I note from my marvellous little book entitled "The Book Of Heroic Failures" reference to a highly popular and exciting production of the Holy Bible.  This was all about the most unsuccessful version of the Bible ever printed.  In 1631 Messrs Robert Barker and Martin Lucas, the King's printers in London obviously failed to proof read the script properly.  It contained several mistakes, but one was 'inspired'.  The word 'not' was omitted from The Seventh Commandment and enjoined its readers, on the highest authority, to commit adultery.
Fearing the popularity with which this might be received in remote country districts, King Charles I called all 1,000 copies back in and fined the printers £3,000.
What a spoil sport!! LOL


  1. Oh, Eddie.....thank you! This is the most perfect bit on religion or anything else that I have ever heard. Allen is a genius.

  2. This video cracked me up! LOL So hilarious! And too funny about the mistake by the printers! LOL Cheers, cher!


Welcome, pull up a chair and enjoy
