This comedic sketch explores the Old Testament Bible story of Noahs Ark.
The story is that the descendents of Adam and Eve had become evil and wicked so God thought he would start over again and destroy every living being in a flood. So he commands Noah to build a big boat. Noah was to find one male and female of every kind of animal and bird and put them in the Ark. He also had to store food for them. So that meant refrigeration for all the fruit and vegetables. And then there were sacks of beans and rice. And Mrs Noah, she wanted a nice kitchen with all the mod cons so that meant another trip to KitchensRUs.
And then they had to put contraceptives in the food so that the animals would not give birth, otherwise it was really going to mess up the project, because the instructions were for only two of each animal. It took 120 years to build the Ark and find all of the birds and animals. It was a big project.
Noah was 600 years old by the time everything was ready. Then it started to rain. It rained non stop for 40 days and 40 nights. The water was so deep that even Mount Everest was covered. But Noah and his family and the birds and animals were safe in the Ark. After about a year the waters had receded and Noah sent out a dove to find land. It came back with an olive leaf. So even though the planet had been under water for a year there still olive trees.
If you do a bit of research you will find that the story of the flood has been told in India, Egypt, Babylon, Sumer and other places. So I checked the appendix in the Bible but could not find any acknowledgements, no references and no bibliography. So then I thought well if God had previously published the story and since he was the author maybe he did not have to reference his own publications. But I thought at least he might mention it in the preface of the Bible that he had reworked some of his earlier stories, you know just to put things into perspective.
