woohooligan NEW!: Hey hooligans! Vote in my quick poll about laughter because it rocks! Thanks!
Man, let me tell you, the Christian god really is the god of reverse psychology... and it's not just the forbidden fruit.

Blessed are the poor, right? But why? Because they get riches in heaven. Blessed are you who weep because you will laugh. (Luke 6)

If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. (Matthew 19)

Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. (James 4)

It just goes on and on like that! And that's not even mentioning the part where Jesus says that all his followers will be beaten to death during the end of days. (Matthew 24)

Or the weird-ass parable of the Vineyard Workers in which Jesus advocates that God feels that slackers who spend most of their day having coffee breaks should be paid the same amount as industrious folks who've worked a hard and honest day... only to be punctuated by this eyebrow raising nugget: "So the last will be first, and the first will be last." (Matthew 20)

Ah well... sure enough though, it's another example of men being created in God's image when so many of us play this weird-ass hard-to-get game. Well... women mostly... guys are usually happy to oblige -- it's only women who seem to only want to have sex with partners who lack interest. And even then obviously it's only some women, but it must be common enough, since you can't turn on the TV or walk down the street without hearing that age-old trope, "all the good men are gay."

But I guess to be honest it's not just sex. I'm sure you've heard the saying "you don't know what you've got 'till it's gone." And that's only the case because it's in our nature to grow bored with things we already have and seek out new things that are challenging to get. The grass is always greener, right? It's like someone stuck a carrot in front of us and when we finally got it, we decided we liked it better dangling from the stick! ;)

This is the 16th two-page spread in this story, which I'm tentatively titling "Da Fine Comedy". It's the 9th page that's taken place at least partly in the Office of Repentance, which is longer than we spent in Hell. We're going to get back to Hell eventually - for now there's just one or two more pages in the Repentance Office until the next turning point when Amy will enter Heaven. You guys will never guess how that part will play out! ;)

Stay awesome, Hooligans!
