    Has a JW said to you "We are closer than ever before" -- Duh???

    Duh, indeed.

    Any future event is "closer than ever" at any given time.

    Of course, since this particular event is a Fairy Tale, not so much.

    I cannot even recall how many JW funerals I've been to in my life.

    All of them thought the End of the World would happen in their lifetime.

    Kind of sad.

    Duh is the only answer for a statement such as that.

    Maybe we should just tell the JWs that each day brings us half the way to the end.........

    Red-Riding Hood, Snowwhite and Cinderalla are all closer than ever before to living happily ever after. No, really, they are. Take me seriously: I mean it: They are soooooooo much closer.

    What's that sound I hear? Oh, it's the pitiful sound of the little boy crying "wolf"! Watch out Red-Riding Hood: That happily ever after is slippin' away real fast. No really it is.

    Yes. Even closer than we were when the 2 World Wars happened ... oh yeah.. and the Great Depression and the oil crisis of the 1970s. Whatever!

    The sky has continued to fall since the beginning of the organization.

    They need to rename the Watchtower to The Chicken Little Bible & Tract Society.

    Its like watching NASCAR:

    "Oh look another left tuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurn! And now...another left tuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurn! What will they do next? Ohhhh another left tuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurn!"

    And eventually they stop making left turns and somebody wins the left turns contest. And SOMEBODY predicted that Joe Schmoe driving the pink TAMPAX ULTRA car...would win.
