God has a sense of humour

Maybe there is a god and he/she/it has a sense of humour?

Deseret Books is the Mormon bookstore and it was selling copies of the Mormon film “Sons of Provo” about a boy band of Mormons going by the almost annoying name of Everclean. This is a band that comes up with such forgettable lyrics as these:

Everclean, cleaner than Listerine
Mellower than Dramamine
Not even close to obscene

That may get people excited in Utah but then Utah has the unenviable status of being the US state with the lowest average IQ. Actually I was surprised. Considering the politicians coming out of Texas I would have thought Lone Star state would win that honour. Supposedly the film has tongue firmly planted in cheek but I wonder exactly how many of the locals actually pick up on that.

It appears that a couple of families bought copies of this exciting DVD only to find that they instead got copies of the film “Adored: Diary of a Porn Star”. The film is about a gay porn star who reconnects with his family. And while it is not porn by most definitions it would no doubt send the Mormons into a flutter.

Of course all copies of the DVD were immediately pulled from the shelves. It appears that both films were duplicated by the same company for two different distributors. Somewhere along the way the wrong DVDs got into the wrong boxes.

I guess it’s a good thing that Mormons aren’t big into the theology of the Second Coming. Who knows what they would have ended up with if they were.

Sounds less likely that God has a sense of humor than that someone at the duplication plant is a prankster.

Just FYI: Mormons do believe in the Second Coming. For sure.
