    DALLAS, TX—According to sources, self-described theology nerd Raymond Lance returned home from a quick, four-hour pop-in at a local seminary’s bookstore Monday afternoon to discover that his wife had installed a state-of-the-art book detector over the home’s entryway.

    As Lance tiptoed in the door, apparently planning on quietly slipping the books behind some of the other books stacked in various oddball piles throughout the house, he reportedly jumped in terror at a blaring alarm, which alerted his wife Melissa that he had brought home 27 new books on theology, Christian living, and the Bible.

    While Lance scrambled to gather the various tomes and volumes he had dropped all over the floor in his fright, Melissa appeared seemingly out of nowhere, tapping her foot with a knowing look on her face.

    “Where exactly is this coming out of our Financial Peace budget?” she asked, bending over to pick up one of the works that had flown across the room. “An N.T. Wright book? Don’t you have this one already?”

    If Raymond had bought the 27 volumes on his Kindle, he would have avoided the alarm and his wife would have been none the wiser. Just sayin'. :Biggrin

    The Babylon Bee seems to be of the same vein as The Sacred Sandwich.

    I'd never heard of the Sacred Sandwich. Looks to be some interesting / entertaining reading.
