<Machival> o/~ what if god drove Mazda cars? o/~
<Samwise> I've been seeing it the whole time... maybe one of those home-grown deals, where the owner thinks he can act in commercials... they're at the last supper, Jesus breaks the bread, an SUV crashes through the (obviously fake) wall, Jesus tries to look overly surprised

<Robbbbb> "For unto us the 2002 models are born; unto us huge deals are given!!!!"

<tieboy> "Enough room for the Four Horsemen... *and* their horses!"
<CrazyClimber> "You'll get to Calvary in style totin' yer cross in the back of this Chevy pickup!"
<spinn> mm, scene with a guy with sores, a missing leg, no hair, a bandaged arm, maybe standing around a few freshly dug graves.
<spinn> he looks up to the heavens, starts weeping openly
<spinn> slows down a bit, squints his eyes, there's a glint of light
<spinn> turns out to be something that falls to the ground in front of him
<Samwise> And he says "Hey, where's the cream filling?"
<spinn> it's an Oldsmobile key with a keyring that says "Job: Sorry about that. --God"
<spinn> looks up, there's the car
<wabewalkr> "I ain't gonna sell my soul for a muffler!"
<agent_orange> 3 weeping women roll back stone from jesus' crypt -- he's not there -- they look at each other, puzzled; cut to shot of jesus driving new 626 across sun-dappled country roads, hooting.
<spinn> bahahaha
<spinn> throwing nails behind him
<spinn> or, oh, maybe a shroud
<agent_orange> flings shroud out of sunroof
<Samwise> Or, he zooms along, and the camera stops and watches him drive off as the shroud falls to the ground
<spinn> these would all be excellent ina gritty sepia tone
<tieboy> "Judas... did you adjust the seats and mirrors??"
<Samwise> Damn. This could *work*.
<spinn> I know, couldn't it?
<Samwise> But it'll be years before people will accept it.
<spinn> fft, if ever
<Robbbbb> especially the Jews
<agent_orange> "I wandered the desert for forty days ... and only had to gas up once!"
<spinn> it's make a great parody tho
<Samwise> Yeah, almost writes itself.
<Elkman> "Before the horn honks today, you will deny me three times."
<Robbbbb> "Come talk to our salesmen: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John"
<tieboy> He could pass by Budda whose car is broken down
<Samwise> Man, think of the controversy you could cause with these.
<Machival> "o/~ Jesus Christ... Superstar... look at him driving that fancy car... o/~"
<Samwise> "Shoulda used Cohen's nails"
<Gayo> Yeah. people would be all "would jesus REALLY buy a mazda?".
<spinn> well, we'd have to make up a car company
<spinn> what's a good name?
<Samwise> Uhm......
<agent_orange> tieboy: "If you see the buddha on the road, give him a lift."
<Samwise> Eternity
<spinn> not too obviousl, like Salvation or something
<raven> Heh, Moses hauling stones for the pyramid with a 4x4. "Ford Truck...Let Your People Go."
<Machival> Divine Auto
* jeeb shakes the psychic purple sphere...
<jeeb> It says 'Sure,' Machival
<Machival> hunh?

<Samwise> Yup. Can't argue with divine providence there.
<spinn> maybe that's a model, tho
<tieboy> Providence
<raven> The Intervention!
<spinn> heheh
<spinn> the all new 2002 Intervention
<spinn> has a ring to it
<CrazyClimber> i kinda like the sound of "Deity Motors"

<CrazyClimber> "Now at your local Deity Dealer."
<spinn> yeah!
<spinn> I'll take that
<tieboy> Heathen resistant side panels and bumpers
<Gayo> tie, that's where you show the guy trying to thrust the spear of longinius into the side of the truck and it breaks.
<spinn> there's what keith can do
<Samwise> I *so* hope.
<spinn> commercial for the Deity Intervention
<tieboy> 'Radiator Fluid and Holy Water Only'
<Samwise> "Bring in coupon from your Sunday paper for instant redemption!"
<Elkman> And the customers would be invited to put their hands into the grille, door, and the tailpipe if they were doubting Thomases.
<TMR> Communion wafers and grape juice for the kids!
<CrazyClimber> "This man was going to buy a Saturn. But we locked him in a room and talked it over with him until he understoof his mistake. He's a Deity Intervention driver now."
<Robbbbb> 4-wheel drive provides excellent traction when driving over palm fronds
<tieboy> "Don't let vapor lock 'plague' you."
<Samwise> Yeah, that could be another commercial in this marketing series... the shot where you can't see the driver, no sound, slow mo, of a big SUV driving over palm fronds as they're laid down
<agent_orange> "Folks, this is Judy, and this is her *first new car*!" (staff begin to gibber in tongues and fall to floor, twitching)
<CrazyClimber> "New for 2002: The Deity Ascension"
<tieboy> The Isuzu Afterlife
<agent_orange> "Gabba aabba! We accept you! we accept you! one of us!"
<Elkman> Of course, this dealership would probably get competition from the fundie dealership down the street.
<tieboy> "Do you accept Jesus as your savior? Do you deny Satan, Chrysler, General Motors, Honda, Lexus..."
<CrazyClimber> "The road to hell is paved with potholes -- but our 2002 Deity Spirit has the best suspension on earth!"
<Robbbbb> Forgive me father, for I have sinned. It's been 5 months since my last oil change...
<agent_orange> "The power of a two liter v-6 compels you! The power of a two liter v-6 compels you!"
<Samwise> "With 3 fold-out seats and room for 12"
<agent_orange> print ad: long shot of the new Intervention at Cavalry. copy: "Hey. There's one of those green ones."
<CrazyClimber> (annoying pop song from last year playing faintly in the background) "What if God were one of us? He'd be driving a new Honda too!"
<Elkman> And someone would put leaflets in the driver's seats saying "This Was Your Car!"
<tieboy> "With a wafer-holder molded to the dash."
<CrazyClimber> nah, he'd keep the wafers in that little thing meant for the quarters, i bet
<CrazyClimber> "This isn't a cup holder... it's a grail holder!"
<Samwise> I... can't.... must....
<TMR> Drives over water!
<Samwise> background for the cheesier commercials: o/~ I don't care if it rains or freezes... o/~
<CrazyClimber> eh, should've gone with "Now comes with passenger side grail holder!"
<Elkman> "Dark Garages: I don't want to be Elfstar any more! I want to drive a 2002 Deity!"
<agent_orange> Jesus Christ Rent-a-Car
<Samwise> "My car won't start! Jesus Christ!" *ping* "Someone need a rental?"
<tieboy> Our new SUV, the 2002 Leviathan
<Samwise> With seven different horns
<Robbbbb> "If Mary had had a backseat as spacious as this, she wouldn't have been a virgin for long!"
<spinn> heheh. okay, loading up the ark, and noah's wife tells him there's not enough room--he looks outside and there's two unicorns, two manticores, two centaurs, and two 2002 Ascensions
<spinn> cut to a scene with Noah admiring the leather interior with a pair of ducks and a mongoose
<TMR> "Kick the apatosauruses out and get those Ascensions on here!"
<Samwise> Well, maybe the manticores are a bit obscure...
<Robbbbb> sigh. we're all going to hell.
<spinn> dragons, then
<Samwise> Yeah, then back out to a shot of the Ascentions in the ark, sound of thunder.
<babich> You could have the Arc in the middle of the ocean with the Ascension doing donuts around it, with those water tread tires on.
<tieboy> "Our Father, who parked in Heaven..."
