Jurassic Beatitudes

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for they will be taught to rend.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will bite the heads off those who are to blame.

Blessed are the meek, for they do not step on our tails.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they go stomping around devouring all the righteousness out there, fer realz.

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall kill tonight’s dinner quickly.

Blseesed are the pure in heart, for they don’t mind killing tonight’s dinner quickly.

Blessed are the peacemakers, because they keep those mean, nasty old T-Rexes away from us.

Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, because nothing is more fun than rending and devouring persecutors.  I mean, who doesn’t love that?

  1. Blessed is pre-4thstreet adrenalin rush, for it provideth creative outpourings of funny to amuse us.

  2. Believe it or not, there has been a talkbacker on Aintitcoolnews for years who calls himself “RaptorJesus.” His icon shows Christ cuddling a small dinosaur to his bosom.

  3. PrivateIron – So you’re saying he has his own, personal, raptor? Something to hear his prayers? A raptor who cares for your flesh? Someone who’s there to rend?

  4. Jeff: I don’t know if RaptorJesus is making some ideological comment on creationism; I do know that it’s my favorite weird icon from the inter-tubes. But I am sure that when it was all alone, the raptor would think about flesh and bone on the telephone if it knew what a telephone was. Pick up the receiver, you know I’m a Reaver.
