I was really inspired by reading _The Message of Hope_, a paraphrase of the Bible in modern English by Eugene H. Peterson.

------
(The Bible, Technical Slang Version)

(A translation of portions of the Bible into the language David Cary <d.cary@ieee.org> speaks, a polyglot of American English, Electrical Engineering, Computer Hacker Jargon, with a dash of Greek, Hebrew and Deutsch.)
(Anybody who wants to contribute to and/or proofread this effort,

please contact <d.cary@ieee.org>. I want to make this a true translation of the Bible, not a mere parody. However, some bits of the Bible are genuinely humorous.).

Genesis 1:

"At time t = 0, Elohiym implemented the heavens and Earth.
Now Earth had low information content, ...
And Elohiym said, "Let there be electromagnetic radiation",
and there was electromagnetic radiation."
--Genesis 1:1 to 1:3, Technical Slang Version.

...

The Fundamental Law of Bandwidth Conservation and Binary Communication:
"Simply let your 'Yes' be 'Yes,' and your 'No,' 'No';
anything beyond this comes from the evil one."
-- Jesus (Matthew 5:37)

...

About JokeTribe


These all are jokes that we've had the good fortune of having other people email to us or we've retrieved off the Internet. Over time, we've sent them on to the subscribers of our various jokes lists. Since we're talking some ten years of managing these emails lists, we've built up a pretty sizeable (and FUNNY) collection of jokes. They cover pretty much any category and topic that you can imagine; from clean jokes to dirty jokes and most everything in between, including the much loved lawyer jokes and the blonde jokes and the yo mama jokes as well as those redneck jokes. Remember, we did NOT author them, but we did take the time to convert the text files to html.

If you are certain of the authorship of any of these, email us the author's name along with relevant information on how we can verify that they truly are the author so we can give them the credit that they deserve.
