"Oh, by the way, I was being sarcastic!"

Jeffersonic

I've always thought this was a great prayer and I tend to include it on any mix C.D. that I'm going to force on people around this time of year. Gee Whiz,
I love the line "for decent church goin' women, with
their mean, pinched, bitter, evil faces." I generally try to avoid holidays with relatives, but every once in a while, I find myself sitting down to dinner with people who are "all messed up on the Lord". While
they wisely avoid calling on me to recite a prayer
before dinner, I've often fantasized about delivering
the Burroughs prayer.

Another one I've always liked:

"If there is a benevolent entity lurking out in the
cosmos, beyond my comprehension, and it had something to do with the apparently fortuitous events that led to my sitting in front of this plate of food, then thanks!"


Yet another:

"We're trapped in a swirling vortex of chaos and
anything can happen at any moment."
