Confirmation class 

The TigerHawk son had his first confirmation class today, whereby he will qualify, we suppose, for admission into the Episcopal Church in his own right. Unfortunately, it did not get off to the best possible start. Devotee of George Carlin that he is, the TigerHawk son had a question for the very nice seminary student teaching the class, which he helpfully labelled in advance as "a little bit blasphemous": "Can God make a rock so big that he himself can't lift it?"


Fortunately, the teacher correctly identified this as the oldest one around. Indeed, it long ante-dates Carlin's classic debut album Class Clown, in which that comic master posed the very same question.
