Old Testament Trial

Category: P.U.N.Y. listserv, Rated G

Stan Kegel sent this one to PUNY as one of his nominations for the pun of the millenium. I suspect it may be written by him, also. Very excellent.


And it came to pass after these things that God did test Avraham. And God said to him “Avraham!” And Avraham replied “Hineni – here I am.” And God said, “Take your computer, your old computer, your 286 and install upon it an operating system, a new operating system, Windows 98 which I will show to you.” And Avraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass. He loaded his computer, his old computer, his 286, on the ass. And he took two of his young men with him and Yitzchak his son. And he rose up and went to the place where God had told him, there to find Windows 98. Then, on the third day, Avraham lifted his eyes and saw Windows 98 from afar. And Avraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and load Windows 98 on our 286, and come again to you” And Avraham took his computer his old computer, his 286, and laid it on Yitzchak his son. And they went both of them together. And Yitzchak spoke to Avraham his father and said, “My father.” And he replied, “Hineni – Here I am my son.” And Yitzchak said, “Windows 98 requires far more memory than a 286 has. How will it possibly run on your machine?” And Avraham looked at his son, his only son, whom he loved; and he shook his head slowly, and in perfect faith and with unswerving trust and belief in the Almighty, he said, “Fear not, Yitzchak my son, … God will provide the RAM.”
