Blessed are the dumbfucks for they...shall never be disappointed

Lamb by Christopher Moore

Boy HOWDEE does this have special resonance for me and Kathy!

This also comes during the writing of the Sermon on the Mount, which is perhaps my favorite scene from Lamb (after the opening which involves Joshua bringing lizards back to life after his little brother stones them). When Joshua queries what should they bless the dumbfucks with, Biff puts his foot down. He might actually try to put his foot up, but it doesn't elaborate. Two paragraphs later, after Joshua keeps trying to slip them in, Biff ends it with "NO DUMBFUCKS!"

Kathy and I have also done enough for them. We just can't make them go away. She suggested today that we make a particular one's life completely miserable. The only problem is I'm not sure he's smart enough to notice. And it would make me spend even MORE time thinking about him without the joy of knowing I'm making him suffer.

Anyway, this brings to an end a week of Chris Moore quotes. He's great fun, so check him out. Very entertaining, but not brain candy...more like brain bread pudding with a nice whisky sauce.
