In the year 2012, the Lord came unto Noah,
who was now living in America and said:
“Once again, the earth has become wicked and over
-populated, and I see the end of all flesh before me.”
“Build another  Ark and save 2 of every living thing
along with a few good humans.”
He gave Noah the blueprints, saying:
“You have 6 months to build the  Ark before I will
start the unending rain for 40 days and 40 nights.”cid:64EF26AED7A84EB1BB07712C4B11B16C@ws2
Six months later, the Lord looked down and saw Noah
weeping in his yard – but no  Ark.
“Noah!,” He roared, “I’m about to start the rain!
Where is the  Ark?”
“Forgive me, Lord,” begged Noah, “but things have changed.”cid:271A41699E9F4314B21DF804C0624578@ws2
“I needed a Building Permit.”

“My neighbors claim that I’ve violated the
neighborhood by-laws by building the  Ark in my
back yard and exceeding the height limitations. We had to
go to the local Planning Committee for a decision.”

“Then the local Council and the Electricity Company demanded a shed load of money for the future costs of moving power
lines and other overhead obstructions, to clear the
passage for the  Ark’s move to the sea. I told them
that the sea would be coming to us, but they would
hear none of it.”

“Getting the wood was another problem. There’s a ban
on cutting local trees in order to save the Greater Spotted Barn Owl.”
“I tried to convince the environmentalists that I
needed the wood to save the owls – but no go!”

“When I started gathering the animals the ASPCA took me to court. They insisted that I was
confining wild animals against their will. They
argued the accommodations were too restrictive, and
it was cruel and inhumane to put so many animals in
a confined space.”

on your proposed flood.”

“So, forgive me, Lord, but it would take at least 10
years for me to finish this  Ark.”
