God Converted To Buddhism!
Holy God we Praise thy haircut........?
by our corr J. Christ of SCN, Heaven
26th Dec 2003
There was widespread shock among Archangels, Seraphim and Cherubim when a bearded old man called God shaved his hair off, donned saffron robes and said "Nammo Dhassa Baghavato..etc!".
Creation Of Man by Michaelangelo

Decision Time!
"It is decision times folks!"
as they say on telly.
Would you rather be a Christian than a Buddhist or a Muslim?
Think carefully before answering folks!
(Clue: Christians are allowed Alcohol!)
The conversion of God to Buddhism came as a total surprise to Christians who had always assumed that God was a solid Christian...
However, God pointed out that he was Almighty God and therefore in charge of his own destiny as well as ours.
When challenged that he, God, was the root of all of Mankind's problems, God went into a huff and stormed out of the studio...

Michael Aiya, the Archangel, a long time associate of the old geezer, said "We think that the old man is really off the rocker thish time...!"
The Sri Lankan Garment, predictably, announced new laws to prevent God from being converted to Buddhism...
Or is God a Protestant, Church of England, Jehova's Witness, Mormon, Church Of Latter Day Saints, Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, Bannerman's Bar of Cowgate Edinburgh, Trotamundo's of Cusco with that lovely barmaid...?..(You are drunk! - Ed)

Father Christmas Nearly Assaulted!
New Laws To Ban Conversion To Father Christmasism!
by our corr. Jehovah's Witnesswardena, SCN Mariakade.
Today, a bearded man in a red suit calling himself Santa Claus was nearly assaulted, hung, drawn and quarter-poundered.... (You have used that joke before!- Ed) unruly and ruly (ruly? - Ed) mobs gathered at the funeral of the Independence Square Thero at the Ven. Gangodawila Square in Colombo who died in Russia.
Earlier this man had been accused of trying to convert Buddhists to Christianism.

Lions Vs Christians
"Whilst we have no objection to Christmas and Christians, and we in fact enjoy the drinking and drunken roistering that goes in the name of J. Christ, we object to Buddhists being forced to go to church at midnight" said a spokesman for the United Front for Starting a Riot on any Excuse (UFSRE).

Archbishpop Markus Jesuwardena, the Bish. of Borella said "There is absolutely no historical evidence that Jesus Christ was born on the 25th of December. In fact the 25th was a Pagan festival that the Christians hijacked!"
"Kill the Rabbit! Kill the Wabbit....!"
(Elmer Fudd in Warner Bros 'toons)
Following the stalemate created by the inability of the Sinhalese Buddhist majority to beat the shit out of the Tamils and the stalemate caused by the infighting between El Presidente Chandrapala and her toy boy Rani, there has been considerable frustration among the masses and no outlet for letting off of venom.
Father Christmas, generally considered to be a harmless eccentric who goes "Ho! Ho! Ado!", is an ideal target for the Racist, Nazi, Commie, Pol-pot, Chandrika, Velupillai, Mullah Hakeem, George Bush Global Warmongering Saddam Hussein, unwashed, Stinko, Genghis Khan, Imran Khan, Muralitharan....

God Is Not A Jehova's Witness Shock!
Today a bearded gentlemen claiming to be God announced that he was not a Jehova's Witness.
Today the Catholic Church was not thrown into schock and awe by the news that the Pope was not yet dead!

(This drawing is by Buddhist artist B. Wimalaratne as his contribution to Christmas and religious harmony)
 SANTA is an anagram of SATAN!
No Shock And Disarray!
The Christian world was not thrown into shock and disarray today when Professor Buddhadasa Deshapremiya announced the results of his 10 years of Garment funded research into Santa.
His announcement was not met by shock by the shillions of Christians who already knew that Santa was an advertising logo for the Coca Cola Corporation.

Same Film, New Episode!
By our Pali-mentary Correspondent Moustache M. Rajapassa (SCN Kotte 4-11-2003)
Today a woman by the name of Chandrani St. Brides ("The Bride") who had been in a coma since the last election got up from her coma and went on the rampage with a sword and cut the heads and other parts of three not-very-well-known Government Ministers whilst their boss "Bill" was in America having tea with an underworld figure known as "The Bush".

Wearing a bright yellow sari with two black stripes and a matching yellow-and-red top she single handedly beheaded three important Garment Ministers.

Chief Jester
The nasty pieces of work now running the country were trying to finish off "The Bride" first by impeaching the Chief Justice and then trying to pass various nasty bills in parliament.

For my own part in this bloody film I will be joining up with a few shifty actors and I hope to be the next Pry Minister of the Glorious Republic of Sri Lanka.

by our corr in the Vanni Marie Colvin-Masalavaddai (SCN 24-10-2003)
Today a Canada based aid organisation UNIBELTS provided free belts to the poor people of Vanni to stop their trousers or Vetti from falling down. A disastrous civil war had left most people without belts to support their trousers and some were even resorting to suicide in their shame.

In view of his self proclaimed importance the chief of the tribe a man by the name of Velupillai Prabhakaran was provided with a specially made calf leather black belt from the people of Toronto.

Pink Knickers
A colourful character, Velupillai - also known as "Pink Knickers" because of his fondness for feminine underwear- welcomed this initiative.
He said "In the last war that I led against the Evil Empire Of The South my trousers often kept falling down. I remember even in school my trousers would fall down and the other boys would laugh at my pink knickers. That'sh why I decided to become a ruthless killer. Who is Ruth by the way?"
