New York, NY (PRWEB) May 22, 2006 -–
In this week’s issue, NewsLaugh.com, The Sanely Funny Weekly Humor Magazine, reports that Pat Robertson, in the wake of having reported that God told him Tsunami-like storms were likely to hit U.S. coasts this year, appeared on his transparently acquisitive TV program, visibly shaken, and announced, “God has told me something else, and it’s something I didn’t want to hear. He said, ‘Pat, you lost your mind. ’”
“Naturally, I was surprised and asked why he would ever think such a thing of me.
“God went on to ask, ‘Did you report that I told you America should assassinate Hugo Chavez, the leader of Venezuela?’
“'Yes, I did,' I confessed.
“’And did you recently tell people I told you that this year I’m going to send fearsome storms to batter the coastlines of America?’
“'Yes, I did,' I confessed again.
“’But, Pat, ask yourself, if I’m the benevolent being people expect me to be, how could I have said those terrible things?’
“You mean, you didn’t say them?' I asked.
"’Heck, no!” God exclaimed. “I’ve got my reputation to consider."
