Do any fedi friends have access to a theological library?

I'm trying to find someone to help me get a photocopy of a page or two from this book:

It allegedly contains a photo of a cuneiform tablet which records history's oldest joke.

As a clown, I need a copy. :)

I'm also interested in having a copy of the book, though it seems to be looooooong out of print.

Any help, including boosts, appreciated!

take on “cancel culture” 

Put another way, “community justice” is when I win in the court of public opinion and “cancel culture” is when I lose in the court if public opinion.

take on “cancel culture” 

Most people who are mad about “cancel culture” are mostly just mad that they can not longer count on winning every time they enter the court of public opinion.

@wxcafe Huh. So it absorbs, rather than reflects? Light is weird. 🤷🏻‍♂️

@glitter I just successfully watched a random video. 🤷🏻‍♂️

@vyr I read this aloud to my family. The 10yo said, “That was horrible, daddy. I liked it.” 🤣

in a world where… there once was a man… named Michael Finnegan…

*brief shaky-cam scene of a guy standing in front of a bathroom mirror*

he had whiskers. on his chinnegan.

*closeup on beard*

he shaved them off…

*series of short clips of shaving equipment flashing past: sink, beard, safety razor, shaving cream*

but they grew in again.

*camera zooms out to show us a man, fully bearded, standing in the wreckage of a bathroom, the only part of the building still standing in a ruined city still aflame*

coming this fall 2020…

*fade to black*

Michael Finnegan… begins again.


@vicorva Hah! I just put it on my sofa and took the picture. 🤷🏻‍♂️ The gorgeous art did the heavy lifting, IMO.

Good morning, witches and wicks, bits and bytes, nibbles and naughts and nulls. 🌇💖

Got a friend asking for gender-neutral words that might replace "sister" or "brother". They want something they could use in the context of talking to teachers or similar about their children, so not super jokey, but also "subling" strikes them as feeling pretty clinical. They cited "nibling" as feeling right tone-wise (but describing a different relationship, obviously). Children in question are teens.

What d'yall got by way of advice? :boosts_ok:
