Blog Intro: 27b/6

>> Tuesday, March 23, 2010

I'm not too sure if this is an active blog or not, but David Thorne's 27b/6 has some of the funniest writings I'm read for a long time. I stumbled upon it through the Stranger Slogabout an e-mail exchange between David and a Christian volunteer in the school where David's son Seb is attending. The volunteer has sent out a permission slip to the parents for a presentation on the true meaning of Easter and with the check box pre-filled. Obviously, it doesn't sit well with David, so the hilarity ensued.

The whole exchange really made me laugh. With lines like:

I have received your permission slip featuring what I can only assume is a levitating rabbit about to drop an egg on Jesus.

Also, your inference that I am without religion is incorrect and I am actually torn between two faiths; while your god's promise of eternal life is very persuasive, the Papua New Guinean mud god, Pikkiwoki, is promising a pig and as many coconuts as you can carry.

I understand the importance the resurrection story holds in your particular religion. If I too knew some guy that had been killed and placed inside a cave with a rock in front of it and I visited the cave to find the rock moved and his body gone, the only logical assumption would be that he had risen from the dead and is the son of God. Once, my friend Simon was rushed to hospital to have his appendix removed and I visited him the next day to find his bed empty. I immediately sacrificed a goat and burnt a witch in his name but it turned out that he had not had appendicitis, just needed a good poo, and was at home playing Playstation. [...] has anyone checked his house?

I can only be glad that I'm not in the receiving end of that exchange. After reading most of his posts, I can see that the guy has great wit and writing skills but he's quite relentless and most of the time just looking for someone to fuck with. His main source of amusement seems to be from other people's suffering. Very funny nonetheless.

I don't really know if these e-mail exchanges really did happen or maybe they could all be made up. The outcomes of most of these scuffle always seems to go in David's way since the opponent will eventually get worn out. I guess it's a great technique to have. Every time he goes into one of his outrageous side stories that probably never happened just tickles me pink.

David is selling a compilation of his "work" in a book called The Internet is a Playground and it's getting very good reviews. It's available on Amazon. Though it seems all the material in the book is already available online.

Today is also Ben & Jerry's free cone day between 12 to 8, so go out and get a free cone!
