"The Earth is wicked again. I'm going to flood it and start over," God told Noah. "Build another ark and save two of every living thing."
Six months later, the Lord looked down and saw Noah weeping in his yard - but no boat. "Where's the ark?" he roared. "I'm about to start the rain."
"Well, things have changed," Noah said. "First, I needed a building permit. Then some group said it was inhumane to put the animals in such a close space. Then the government halted construction to conduct an environmental-impact study on the flood."
Suddenly, the clouds cleared and a rainbow stretched across the sky.
"You mean, you're not going to destroy the world?" Noah asked.
"What's the point?" God said. "Looks like someone beat me to it."
