IRC Bible

My friend James pointed me to this website again. I remember discovering it a couple of years ago, but forgot to bookmark it.

The IRC Bible tells stories from the good book as though they were in an internet chat room. Here’s an example from Epiphany:

* Wiseman1 has joined #Jerusalem
* Wiseman2 has joined #Jerusalem
* Wiseman3 has joined #Jerusalem
<wiseman1> lo
<wiseman2> lo
<wiseman3> lo
<wiseman1> Where is he that is born King of the Jews?
<wiseman2> for we have seen his star in the east,
<wiseman3> and are come to worship him.
<herod> wtf?! that sounds like trouble
<jerusalem> we agree!
<herod> Priests! Scribes! What channel will Christ join?
<priest> lol thats easy
<scribe> yeah, it's #Bethlehem obviously :P
<herod> k, ehm... wise men!
<herod> When did you see this star?
<wiseman1> dunno
<wiseman2> for ages!
<wiseman3> yeah, like already in the east and stuff
<herod> Go to #Bethlehem and check if that king is there
<herod> and if he is, come back here and report
<herod> that I may come and worship him also
<wiseman1> k
