. . . but someone has to take it and it might as well be me. As a writer and sometimes humorist I could be banned for life from the Writer’s Guild for not picking the low fruit. I ran upon this large sign in Barnes & Noble while book shopping.
I stood there for a moment and thought, “George Carlin has returned and resorted to practical jokes.” Then I began to think about it and the humor became unbearable until I laughed aloud startling a couple of Bible beaters lost in their stand-up routines. One of them asked me what was so funny, so, I told him “the sign.” Of course, he replied that he failed to see any humor in the sign. I knew it was worthless but I took a chance and said, “It’s kind of redundant, don’t you think?”
Again, I heard the sound barrier crack as that one sped past, but the glazed look remained. He asked, “What is so funny about the sign Christian Fiction?”
“You’re kidding me, aren’t you; I asked and broke into unrestrained laughter even though it wasn’t that funny. That the young man failed to make the connection was funny, but not in a ha-ha way. True believers as comedic as they might be—are frightening. Nevertheless, if you’re in any bookstore looks for the Christian Fiction section. I guarantee a good laugh.
