Ten what? A slightly off the wall look at a familiar story ...

Another swipe at Political Correctness in the UK from Darryl Ashton. It is in the form of a 'Play Script.'

GOD: "WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH THE TABLETS OF STONE WITH MY TEN COMMANDMENTS? I THOUGHT I TOLD YOU TO TAKE IT DOWN THE MOUNTAIN TO READ TO THE MULTITUDE".

MOSES: "Yes, you did, Guv, but I need to talk to you about that".

GOD: "WHAT'S TO TALK ABOUT. IT WAS A SIMPLE ENOUGH TASK".

MOSES: "That's what I thought, until, Health and Safety spotted me trying to carry the tablets".

GOD: "WHAT HAVE THEY GOT TO DO WITH IT?".

MOSES: "Well, Guv, they reckoned that it was either going to do my back in or I might drop it on my foot, or somebody else's foot. Anyway, H&S weren't having it. I had to fill in a risk assessment form first".

GOD: "ANYTHING ELSE?".

MOSES: "As a matter of fact, there is. It was then that the PC Brigade got involved. Said the title was too abrupt. Didn't leave any room for negotiation".

GOD: "THAT WAS THE IDEA. THEY ARE MY COMMANDS, THAT IS WHY THEY ARE CALLED COMMANDMENTS. THE TITLE STAYS".

MOSES: "Right, Guv, but there was a couple of other things they weren't happy about".

GOD: "WHAT ELSE WERE THEY MOANING ABOUT?"

MOSES: "Well they didn't care for that bit about not worshipping any other Gods. Said it was discriminatory and might upset other religions".

GOD: "ANYTHING ELSE?"

MOSES: "That bit about honouring thy mother and father. They reckon in single - parent families some of the kids don't know who their father is. Sometimes the mother hasn't got a clue".

GOD: "GO ON, LET'S HAVE IT ALL".

MOSES: "The ad people and the politicians are dead against the word "lie" - they say it is too judgmental. They prefer the phrases such as 'putting a spin on it' or 'presenting it in a better light' or 'in the public interest'".

GOD: "THEY ARE ALL LIARS, THOUGH".

MOSES: "Oh yes, Guv, they lie for a living".

GOD: "ARE THERE ANY OF MY COMMANDMENTS THESE VARIOUS MEDDLERS ARE HAPPY ABOUT?".

MOSES: "Well, Guv, they're OK with 'thou shalt not kill'. And the one about stealing, although the politicians rob the people blind, but as they call it taxing apparently, it's all right". Of course, the big stores don't agree with keeping the Sabbath special".

GOD: "I'VE GOT A GOOD MIND TO SEND DOWN A PLAGUE OF BLOODY FROGS TO TEACH THESE SINNERS A LESSON".

MOSES: "No Guv, don't do that, or we'll have the animal rights crowd all over us like a rash".

THE END.
