LOL … I kid you not! At long last, the Bible done with cheese! Here’s the intro: “Herein, you will see an image slide show illustrating Biblical history, complete with referenced verses, detailed stories, and information about the cheeses.

It’s actually pretty good, click on the slideshow button and watch it go. But read the scripture verses carefully…there are little funny zingers thrown in if you read carefully and know your cheese  such as “God saw all that he had made, and it was gouda.”  You get the drift …

Sir – Some linguists were translating the Bible into a local African language (Letters, March 28). They had difficulty in finding a pure word for joy. The tribal words used had connotations which were not acceptable.

As they were debating what would be a suitable word a dog came into the room belonging to one of the missionaries, wagging his tail vigorously.

“What word would you use for the joy that dog has having found his master?”, the missionaries asked. They were offered a word and the final text was translated: “There will be tail-wagging in heaven over one sinner that repents.”
