Jules Winnfield

(h.t. Drudge) Samuel Jackson to voice 'God' in new audio version of the Bible.

'The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyrannies of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepards the weak through the valley of darkness. For he is truly his brothers' keeper and finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.' Now I've been saying that s*** for years, and if you've ever heard it, it meant your ass. I never gave much thought to what it meant, I just thought it was a cold blooded thing to say to a mother f***er before I popped a cap in his ass. But I saw some s*** this morning that made me think twice. Now I'm thinking it could mean you're the evil man, and I'm the righteous man. And Mr. 9mm here is the shepherd, protecting my righteous ass. Or maybe it means that you're the righteous man, and I'm the shepherd, and it's the world that's evil and selfish. Now I'd like that, but you see that s*** ain't the truth. The truth is, YOU'RE the weak, and I'm the tyranny of evil men. But I'm trying, Ringo. I'm trying real hard to be the shepherd.

Maybe he'll use some mouthwash before he does it! ;)

Wyatt Earp said...

That is BRILLIANT casting!!! Maybe he'll speak about snakes on a plane . . . or in a Garden of Eden.

I think it is almost sacrealigious (sp) but, He sure has the angry side of God down! Ha!

Hmmmmm, indeed.
He does have a cool voice, though.

linda - It might take a dose of liquid plumber.

wyatt - I wonder if we will get the colorful analysis next to the narrative. You know, the SJ 'stiff notes' for bible studies.

ssssteve - Real old testament rage.

CUG - My gut feel is James Earl Jones has worn out his auditory fashionability.

What? Morgan Freeman wasn't available?

Insolublog said...

Once again, Freeman doesn't have that old testament wrath of God thing filed to a sharp point.

What? Do you go on periodic hiatus?

In case you missed my response to your last comment at my place, I'll post it here,

"You, sir, could never be 'in the way' of any debate. I am but a boar not worthy of your pearls of wisdom."

The Conservative UAW Guy said...

Is it time for a new post?

Insolublog said...

Thanks FM and CUG. My apologies, but I have been recently inundated here at work. I have been able to visit some of your sites, but I have not had the time to compose any new material.

The Conservative UAW Guy said...

We'll wait. :)

Be well.

No excuses!

I demand BLOOD!!!
