Lenten Devotions: Stupid Human Tricks

"Thus says the man; I am weary, O God,
I am weary, O God.  How can I prevail?
Surely I am too stupid to be human;
I do not have human understanding.
I have not learned wisdom, 
nor have I knowledge of the holy ones...
Two things I ask of you;
do not deny them to me before I die:
Remove far from me falsehood and lying;
give me neither poverty nor riches; 
feed me with the food that I need,
Or I shall be full, and deny you and say, 'Who is the Lord?'
or I shall be poor, and steal,
and profane the name of my God."
Proverbs 30.1-3, 7-9

"Make something idiot-proof, and they will build a better idiot."  Murphy's Law

After several days of rather heavy posts, I thought this afternoon should be something lighter.  Then I read Proverbs 3.2.  I know this is about truth, wisdom, faith and worship of God, but damn, I also believe God has a sense of humor - and let's face it, folks, when it comes to idiocy we are all endlessly creative.  Thus:  Stupid Human Tricks:

There:  now tell me you didn't laugh just a little bit.  I thought so.  Have a great day.
