    I'm not sure if this has already been posted and I just haven't seen it, but here's an email I received recently that gave me a chuckle...


    Run, Idiot, Run

    Br. Jackson of the governing body concluding a talk @ LA District Convention had this neat illustration at the very end of the convention.

    He said "What if you were watching a football game on TV & it was the Trojans against the Fighting Irish...& it's been a good game...and it's coming down to the last seconds and the Trojans get the ball (then he stands like a football player) and then he starts running (and he picks uphis foot like he's going to take off) and you're glued to the TV-just waiting to see what will happen...and he makes it to the 30 then the 20 then the 10 yard line and he's at the one inch line...and he ..stops!

    THE GUY WITH THE BALL STOPS!!! ..and he starts looking around for the game clock..and he yells, "how much time do I have left?"

    And you are staring at the TV in disbelief!!! What do you do?

    You yell at the TV -Run, Idiot!!!, Run!!!

    ...(Bro Jackson is yelling this from the stage) it was so hysterical- then he stops and says ...

    That's where you are...This system is dying.

    We're the event that the universe is watching.

    We are at the one inch line ..and some are stopping and looking around and wondering where we are in the stream of time.

    RUN!!! IDIOT!!! RUN!!! Don't look at the time...just're almost there.

    It was a very dramatic ending.


    I look forward to reading everyone's reviews!

    That's a mighty long game clock. 133 years and counting.

    Watchtower has had Jehovah’s Witnesses staring at the clock since 12:00 AM, October 1, 1914.

    Watching the clock is all Watchtower has been talking about for nearly 100 years!!!

    Now Jackson wants Witnesses to stop watching Watchtower’s clock? The man is a joke! Not to mention a man who is quite willing to lie to children! (Watchtower’s Version of “Truth” available at:

    I can tell you right now who’d be running like an idiot if I had opportunity to publicly question Jackson about Watchtower's asinine blood doctrine! That Jackass would run like a thoroughbred!!!

    It's always that last inch that counts, forget the 99 yards, 2 ft 11 inches that I been giving you, you always want another inch!!

    Dude, your "team", "dropped the ball" countless times over the last 130 years and have not noticed that everyone in the stands are pointing their fingers at you and laughing their arses off while your "team" run from sideline to sideline making 0 progress. The only people chearing for you are your very own "Cheerleeders" and their not that H-O-T anymore.

    WAKE UP CALL,...

    Your on the losing team and will continue that way until you decide to switch sides and get on with the REAL GAME, your life here in this Earth.

    funny he uses a football illustration when the WT publications and talks at KM schools have specifically called out football as being violent and evil.

    So, we would assume from his illustration that the football was thrown in 33CE, was caught by Russell, passed to Rutherford when Russell died, passed to Knorr when Rutherford died, shuffled around a few more times as other carriers died, and now it's an inch from the goal line?
