And They say God is Dead

On the day English schoolteacher, Gillian Gibbons, goes to court for naming a teddy bear after 'Mohommed' (what about boxers?), three kids have been sitting at the back of the bus telling religious themed jokes. Before some bishop or other wants to hunt these miscreants down, these 'witticisms' erred more on the side of theology than humour. One was something about God wanting to give Adam 'two test tickles', another concerned 'the mystery of the Blessed Trinity'. "What's that about?' asked one kid once the joke was told. 'No one knows, it's a mystery!' (Never a truer word spoken, my son.) That prompted some theological debate for some minutes. All this to the accompaniment of a gameboy.
