Great Drinkers Present "Proof" of Mr Deity's Existence

Establishing shot... Earth time: 2007
Mr. Deity, Lucy, Larry and Jesse grab their favorite table in the corner of the bar.
They are meeting to brainstorm about how to mess with physics researchers who are on the verge of finding the "God Particle" at CERN labs in Switzerland.

While they wait for the fifth member of their party, (young Ms. Fate, who's arrival is proving rather unpredictable), Jesse asks Mr. Deity: "Sir", "Tell us again why exactly you don't let people know you exist for sure or not?"

"Listen, I have refused to prove that I exist," says Mr. Deity, "...because as I've said before, and will say again: PROOF DENIES FAITH, AND WITHOUT FAITH I AM NOTHING!"

"Yes but... Sir?..." Larry worries out-loud, "As we three sit here looking at you, we have no "faith" per se that you exist, so by your own argument, you don't... I mean, you wouldn't, ...would you?... Sir?"

"Oh shoot!," says Mr Deity, (accidentally spilling his drink in the tortilla chips,) "I hadn't thought of that," and promptly disappears in a puff of irreconcilable logic.

(Thanks to the late great Douglas Adams, commenter Nalene and Mr. D.)

"I hear great rumblings...", mumbled the eccentric oracle "Wingo" upon arriving back from the top of the volcano.

Reminds me of Descartes...

Descartes walked into a bar for a drink. After he'd had a few, the barkeep asked him if he wanted another. Descartes replied, "I think not." So he disappeared.

Yet ANOTHER joke to get you through these troubled times:

What is the medical term for removing excess scalp from an ATTORNEY?

Answer: A Circumcision!

What's with the cryptic oracle thing at the end of the post, Wingo? What do you know that I don't?

("Toby, the total tonnage of what-I-know-that-you-don't would stun a team of oxen in its tracks")

Thank you for your comments David.

I’ve seen,

things you people wouldn’t believe:

Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.

I watched,

C-beams,

glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate...

well, i just checked the crackle site (good place to look, eh?)...says the season 1 finale is sept. 22 and season 2 begins in early october.

One DISTURBING observation regarding the "Season 1 Finale" on September 22, 2007. Episode 10 -- Mr. Deity and the Seed is NOT on Crackle, and I suspect that is the "Season 1 Finale" you are hearing about. But be of good cheer! "Season 2 in October" must mean we are getting new episode(s) in October!! YIPEEE!!!!!

Here's a little something for the faithful. A fun little movie quiz. What movie featured the following biblical quote: Mark 13:35 - Watch ye therefore, for ye know not when the master of the house cometh.

No "prize money," but you will receive the same "tip" as Carl Spackler. (I guess its a two part quiz! What movie features Carl Spackler and for bonus points, what does Mr. Spackler have "going for" him.)

Post your answers here, or wait for the answers to be revealed later.
