Fun With the Bible: Part I

This scripture is for the times that you just ate at "La Tormenta"--a real restaurant, by the way--and your GI tract knows just how far away home is. Read with care:

Jeremiah 4:19-21 King James Edition

My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart maketh a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war. Destruction upon destruction is cried; for the whole land is spoiled: suddenly are my tents spoiled, and my curtains in a moment. How long shall I see the standard, and hear the sound of the trumpet?

(He bows before his audience),
Hope it isn't prophetic

(Edited. since first posting).

You got the early bird special, Crystal.

I'll take your advice there as well.

Crystal said...

because though may not-eth be able to hold his peace-eth.

The Grunt said...

Heh-heh. Though art funneh, sayest The Grunt.

Survey: Who here has ever had to go so bad that both their tent and curtains got spoiled?
