Busybody Reports


they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

"Hi-de-ho everybody. This is Michael Jay Busybody about to enter Jaque's Resteurante for a bite to eat. I'm in the mood for some fine dining and some friendly service. Jaque's appears to fill the bill having an attractive store front, a sign that reads 'finest dining in town and friendly service'. It even displays a sign that reads 'we love our customers'. Now what more can I ask? Come, let us dine."

"Good afternoon sir. So glad to see you. Please step this way and I will have you seated immediately."

"Now ladies and gentlemen of my listening audience, this is what I like. Friendly and cheerful service, a nice atmosphere and good food, and an attractive young waitress. I feel the tension leaving my body already."

"Here you are sir, our finest table. Can I bring you anything while you decide what you would like to order? Water perhaps, or a nice hot cup of coffee?"

"Um, no, but do you have another table where I can sit? This one has crusted food on the torn upholstery and it smells of rancid meat. Don't you have something more fitting your elegant lobby? I hate to sound offensive young lady, but this room is more like an Ozark truck stop."

"You're not happy with our finest table sir? I do want you happy. And might I say sir that you're tie is most elegant and you dress with exquisite taste."

"Thank you young lady. But might I speak to the manager about perhaps getting another table?"

"The manager will be with you momentarily sir. He is your waiter. I'm sure you will find him most agreeable, and I do hope you enjoy your visit with us."

"Well folks, this certainly is a turn of events. It seems as if things are not always what they appear to be. But I'm certain that when I speak to the manager things will improve. Ah, here he comes now."

"Yeah mac. I hears you ain't satisfied wit' da' best seat in da' house. What's yer beef bud?"

"Um, well Mr, Mr......"

"Jack's da' name bub. Not 'dat it's none a' y'r bee's wax."

"Well, yes Mr Jack. I was just wondering if you have another room I could dine in. I was really hoping for a nice pleasant atmosphere for my dining experience. I'm sure you understand what I mean."

"Yeah mac, I understands. I ain't got no udder room. An' there ain't nothin wrong wit' 'dis room. I's got it jus' like me momma's house, an' me momma's gots good taste jus' like I has. Now, what can I gets f'r you bub? How 'bout's me finest an' most 'xpensive meal. You'll love it. I makes it me'self."

"Well Mr Jack, I'd like to think a bit before I order, and perhaps look over your menu and see what you have to offer."

"Ain't got's no menu mack. Only gots' 'da sign up on 'da wall."

"Oh, yes, so I see. And speaking of signs Mr Jack, when I entered your establishment I read your signs that read 'friendliest service' and 'we love our customers'. Do they perhaps have any special significance?"

"Yeah mac, they does. Bought 'um cheap an' 'dey looks good. 'Dat's 'da signiferance."

"Oh, I see. I thought maybe....."

"I gots the idea from 'da church. I see'd how 'dey c'n say anyt'ing they wants an' bring 'da folks an' 'der pocket book in wit' no questions asked. I fig'red if 'dey c'n do it, so c'n I. Trouble is I ain't fig'red out how ta' pass no offering plate nor make promises 'dat I never has ta' keep, like heaven, health an' happiness an' da' likes. All I gots ta' offer is me best food an service. So, what'll it be mac? Da' choice is ye'rs."

17These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. 18For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. 19While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. 20For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 21For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. 22But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. (2Peter 2:)

10For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: 11Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. 12One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. 13This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; 14Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth. 15Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. 16They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. (Titus 1:)

13But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. (2Tim 3:)
