Insert your own thorns, long hair and beard and make your very own wacky Jesus! From the people who brought you Lollipopes.

'Bible Bloopers'
Read the wackiest bloopers, blips, blunders and general screw-ups from the original draft of the Bible. Find out what happens when Lot's wife gets turned into a cheese Danish. See the embarrassment when Jesus turns water into a puppy!

'Snappy Answers to Stupid Jehovah's Witness Questions'
A sure-fire guidebook on how to get rid of those pesky Jehovah's Witnesses quickly! Example:

Q. May I tell you about the Lord?

A. Only if I can tell you about what's in my pants!

Q. Have you read the book of Jehovah?

A. No, but can I still tell you about what's in my pants!

Just add water and salt and these playful little rascals are ready to pray! Aquarium not included. From the people who brought you Noah's ark-freshener.
