Betty Reads the Exorcist
Betty picked up a copy of the Exorcist at the book store. After reading the book she declared “Bob, This is the most evil book I have ever read.”
Betty was so upset in fact, she instructed Bob to build a barbecue pit in which to incinerate the evil, hideous thing. Betty instructed Bob to place the book into the pit and cover it with briquettes. She doused the pile with lighter fluid then struck a match and stood there the entire time to watch the book burn to ashes.
While she waited for the fire to completely die out, Bob got an idea.
He drove to the local book store to purchase a brand new copy of the Exorcist. He took out his lighter and singed the edges of the new book. He then slipped the blackened book into the top drawer of the night stand beside Betty’s bed.
They say that was the first time Betty ever screamed and fainted.
Bob explained, I know I’m going to hell for this, but at least I’ll go laughing.
