Created: Tuesday, 26 July 2005 Written by ChatoA backup plan for the faithful
takes shape. In response to worries that the
father of the Howardland may not
be the Messiah and that the
real-estate bubble may not be the
promised land, the faithful have
been seen constructing a huge idol
in the bible-belt of Sydney.
The massive back-up fetish will
eventually dwarf typical icons of
the usual religions and is sure
to create a sense of awe in those
who worship it.
Based on a plan provided by a
right-wing think tank, the IPA
(Institute of Pathetic Affairs)
the icon will take the form
of a huge rubber chicken on a
giant stick, according to
Professor Scrotum of the IPA.
"We deemed it necessary to
provide a backup object of faith
because the masses could turn
nasty if the current icons are
revealed to be total crap."
said the professor.
"It will be draped with flashing
multi-coloured lights, and an
audio system will play loud chook
sounds. It should secure the
faith of the masses for the
neocon cause easily."
