Lame, Exhibit A

July 10, 2009

    I suppose you’ve seen some variation of the following?

    Jesus asked them, “Who do you say that I am?”

    And they answered, “You are the eschatological manifestation of the ground
    of our being, the kerygma in which we find the ultimate meaning of our
    interpersonal relationship.”

    And Jesus said, “What?”

    The disciples’ answer could easily be expanded.

  2. Yep, I have come across that one.
