I Guess That’s What I Get for Never Attending Sunday School

My nine year-old daughter and I were playing with her Playmobile boat on Sunday.

I put a bunch of Playmobile people on the boat and started dragging it around the carpet.

But the people looked bored.

“This boat needs a bar,” I told my daughter.

“You can’t put a bar on it,” she said.

“Why not?” I asked.

“It’s Noah’s Ark.”

Hey.  It was hard to tell without the animals.

  1. If I was stuck on a boat with a bunch of animals, I’d sure as hell want a bar.

  2. A bar maybe, but not Cheers! I still do not think your daughter would apprecitate it….

  3. “Given the prominence of alcohol in most religions I’m pretty sure Noah stocked two of every kind of liquor too”

    No way. He didn’t know how long they were gonna be on that ark for. So he had to go with at least 2,000 of every kind. Lot fewer liquors then you know.

  4. My Sunday School taught us that Noah invented wine when the grapes he was carting around on that boat fermented after 40 days and 40 nights.

  5. From the picture, I guess it was indeed hard to tell it was Noah’s ark…I mean, his name’s not on it or anything.

  6. If you read the story of Noah, you’ll find that he wound up getting liquored up and passing out nekkid. There had to be booze on the boat.

  7. @tony: But that was after the ark had already landed. If I remember correctly, he cultivated vineyards and made wine, but he couldn’t have done that on the ark.

  8. I dont’ understand why everyone is dragging noah into this. for pete’s sake! maybe it was the animals who wanted the booze–After all, we all know how antsy the common dog gets when they’re locked inside all day…

  9. Dear Stephan,

    My name is Ekaterina, I’m an editor of F5, a weekly newspaper published in Moscow, Russia. We would like to ask you for an interview for “Our man” heading. It’s a heading devoted to the people who have “made themselves” in the internet or with the help of it.
    A weekly newspaper F5 “The best form the World Wide Web in a week” (http://www.f5.ru/magazine http://my-f5.livejournal.com) has been published since February 2009. F5 is the first Russian offline periodical about internet. The newspaper is published by JV! Media Group (also a publisher of Snob and Russian Pioneer magazines) and is distributed in Moscow and St. Petersburg. Main distribution points are restaurant and café chains, airports, business centres, fitness centres etc.

    Every issue contains news from the web, relevant events from the internet, reviews of new services, blogs and communities, interviews with celebrities (“Confession” heading) and web personalities (“Our man” heading). We would like to interview your for the “Confession” heading.

    Format: A3 page with a photo

    Subject of the conversation: internet and its impact on your life. We want to know what you think about the phenomenon of the World Wide Web, internet as a way and reflection of life. What is significant for us is your opinion about internet as an integral part of our everyday life. In Russia the internet is not yet an unconditional thing, we still perceive it as an achievement, mysterious concept, an all-seeing eye. What part does internet play in your life? What is it for? Can one survive without being online? And can one live online?

    It’s not just a standard interview, but more of a conversation, an attempt to find something new about the things we don’t usually think about.

    As a result we don’t get a conventional “question/answer” interview, but key thoughts of our conversation partner.

    We’re choosing the personalities, whose opinion, as we suppose, is interesting and important for our readers. Alexey German, Sergey Solovyev, Renata Litvinova, Boris Grebenshikov, Marat Guelman, Ilya Lagutenko, Alexey Serebryakov, Dina Korzun, Chulpan Khamatova, Ivan Okhlobystin, Chantal Thomass, Alena Akhmadulina, Nikolay Valuev, Nina Chusova, Denis Matsuev, Elena Zakharova, Nikolay Tsiskaridze and many others have already shared their thoughts with us.

    Is it possible to talk to you via Skype? If you agree, please, choose any convenient date and time. Thank you.

    Kind regards,

    Ekaterina Surina

    F5 newspaper editor
