Here’s one for my fellow unbelievers and anyone who likes mean, funny, snotty writing. It’s an e-mail exchange between a smartass atheist and a youth pastor who takes Australian schoolchildren on field trips for Christian brainwashing.

Here’s how it starts:

Subject: Permission Slip

Dear Darryl, I have received your permission slip featuring what I can only assume is a levitating rabbit about to drop an egg on Jesus. Thank you for pre-ticking the permission box as this has saved me not only from having to make a choice, but also from having to make my own forty five degree downward stroke followed by a twenty percent longer forty five degree upward stroke. Without your guidance, I may have drawn a picture of a cactus wearing a hat by mistake. As I trust my offspring’s ability to separate fact from fantasy, I am happy for him to participate in your indoctrination process on the proviso that all references to ‘Jesus’ are replaced with the term ‘Purportedly Magic Jew.’

Regards, David.

Darryl, a self-described school pastor (the legal term is apparently “Christian volunteer”) makes the mistake of getting into an e-mail exchange with our smartass narrator and things rocket straight to hell from there. Very funny stuff for people who like their humour savage and sarcastic.

The website 27b/6 collects the articles of humourist David Thorne and sells his book The Internet Is A Playground which collects the articles you could just as easily read for free on his website. There are also T-shirts and coffee mugs. If you go to his website and buy stuff from him that’s okay by prairie dog. Happy Easter!
