    Yes the Lord has a sense of humour-at least we know Jesus had, quite an edgy one…assuming the New Testament be believed (John 4 v5+). The God of the OT kept his well hidden between the ‘shalt nots’ and the ‘smitings’ but a couple of places it breaks through in the narratives (Gen.17:15 for example)…and J certainly had one.

      Also one just supplied by Sackerson:

      1 Timothy 5:23

        “for thy stomach’s sake and thine often infirmities”

        I have often wondered if Timothy was a fellow IBS-D sufferer. It might explain the speed, nay *urgency* even, of the spread of the Early Church.

    He made man*. And he made woman*.

    Of course He (She?) has a sense of humour.

    * Allegedly.

      “He made man*.”-Frank H

      POSTSCRIPT

      All that HE (Hashem) saw
      In the Beginning
      Lo, it was good.

      Then HE saw
      Mankind

      And HE thought
      A better name would be
      Maybe or Perhaps.
