No one laughs at God in a hospital, no one laughs at God in a war. No one's laughing at God when they've lost all they've got and they don't know what for. No one laughs at God on the day they realise that the last sight they'll ever see is a pair of hateful eyes. No one's laughing at God when they're saying their goodbyes.
But God could be funny at a cocktail party when listening to a good God-themed joke, or when the crazies say He hates us and they get so red in the head you think they're 'bout to choke. God could be funny when told he'll give you money if you just pray the right way and when presented like a genie who does magic like Houdini or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus. God can be so hilarious ha ha. Ha ha."
