the strine bible
    #1878647 - 09/03/03 08:23 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

a friend sent me this article - "Jesus might have been the son of God but he was also a top bloke who threw
ripper barbies, according to a version of the Bible released Thursday that
translates the Christian holy book into Australian slang. In the Aussie
Bible the Virgin Mary is "a pretty special sheila" who gets knocked up with
the Big Boss' son wraps him in a bunny rug and tucks him up in a feed trough
in the back shed because the local pub is full to bursting. Learn about
Moses and the exodus Author Kel Richards said the 90-page book was a
light-hearted way of introducing the Bible to ordinary people who might be
put off by the traditional version's language. "It is written using the
Australian vernacular and as if the events had actually happened in
Australia," he said. Richards started the project after reading about a
London teacher who translated the Bible into cockney rhyming slang for his
students. Instead of the Bible's traditional opening of "in the
beginning..." Richards opens his book with the informal Australian greeting
of "G'day." He describes how the drovers (shepherds) "shot through like a
Toorak tram" to Bethlehem. Cocky leader Herod was "as jumpy as a wallaby on
hot rocks", so he gathered together a bunch of smart blokes with "more
degrees than a thermometer." The three wise guys "bowed and scraped and gave
Jesus some terrific pressies ? gold and frankincense and myrrh (strange
pressies for a baby but better than a hankie or a pair of socks)." The book
has been given church backing, with Anglican Archbishop of Sydney Peter
Jensen attending the launch in Sydney. Deputy Prime Minister John Anderson
also lent his support, sending a message to the launch."

i wonder if it is still gematrically correct.

LOL that guy must have had a lot of spare time on his hand, its a good idea though perhaps its time to "moderenise" the bible...


And the main man said to his homies

"I am the bread of life: he that  cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst."

To which the niggaz and biatches replied

"Yeah bruv thats safe as fuk"


The punishment which the wise suffer, who refuse to take part in government, is to live under the government of worse men.
