Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
One of my roommates, back in my first go at grad school, was from Nigeria. One day he and his friends were getting ready to go to a local church and talk about his country (and I must point out that they were all good Lutherans). Dressed in his regional dress, he opened the door when a Jehovah's Witness rang the bell.
He stood there and politely listened to their spiel, and when they asked if they could come in a talk, he replied, in his perfect Oxonian accent, "Certainly. We are just getting the goat ready for the sacrifice and you can help hold it."
They left, and we weren't troubled again.
