The Bible or The Penthouse?


Zealous Christian missionaries have taken to putting their favourite book, in remote tramping huts through-out wilderness New Zealand.

Let’s say you were a cold tramper trapped in a hut due to inclement weather, forced to light a fire by ripping-up any paper you could find around the joint.

Faced with ripping apart some of the meagre reading material you find in the hut to use as a ‘fire starter’ - what is the first book you would use for pages faced say with two stark choices:

The Bible or The Penthouse?

Take my poll on the right.

PS: The former president of the Canterbury Westland Alpine Club, Grant Piper indicated in The Christchurch Press {24th January} that given a choice between a ropey old Readers Digest and a Bible – he’d take a page from the Bible.
Footnote: The poll results were conclusive, 28 for The Bible and only 8 for The Penthouse!

The shocking thing was that DOC OK'd the venture. Does this mean that we'll also be able to burn, (sorry, I mean read) vedic texts, the Koran and a back catalogue of the Watch Tower in the near future?

The good thing about the pages in a bibble are that they are very thin and flammable. They are also useful for emergency toilet paper.

Seriously, should we really burn books if we disagree with the content?

I keep a number of Gideon's in the boot of my car as emergency bog roll. I'm not kidding! Found in motel rooms, around the country. TIP: Genesis works best, a synthesis of ideas.
