An Illustration From the NCS Bible.

Genesis 3:6. When the Hen saw that the corn on the ground was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for scratching, she pecked some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, Foghorn, who was with her, and he pecked it. (7) Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; "BAKAAAWK!" they said and ran around like they had no head and hid in the corn stalks from the Great Farmer.

"I've been waiting so long for the New Chicken Standard. The attention to detail is peck-tacular!" - Jim Eggbert, Newsweek.

"It's about time that someone wrote a translation from the chicken's perspective. How in the heck-fire can we call ourselves relevant without this postmodern approach?" - Jeff Winglet, Relevant Magazine.

It is official: I am a weirdo.

Did the authors of the NCS have to study Hebrew chickens to get the exact translation? How do you say "BAKAAAWK!" in Hebrew? Maybe you aren't a weirdo...maybe you're a friend of chickens. :)

oh my!

i think you are right about the dream thing with "Adam"- he is the representation of my HS insecurities. It has led me to pray for him over the years and guess what? A HS friend read the post, knew who I was talking about, and told me he came to the know the Lord a few years back and is now in ministry!

Kate, that is so great about the highschool friend. I had a pretty sucky highschool life as well. I have things like that that turn up in dreams all the time, none from my highschool days, thank the good Lord. My worst reoccurring dreams are:

1. Being stuck in a department store with no pants. I'm desperately looking for the mens section but I'm stuck with my mom in the fabric section, and hiding in the middle of those round hanger-bin things.

2. Finding out that I've missed an entire semester of a class that I had registered for and I can't finish my degree. I think of all of them, this is the worst.

I have some strange ones... but I'm thinking they are a little too embarrassing to type out here. It runs in my family too. So whata am I gonna do? I'm going to tell one of my sisters!

My younger sister, the opera singer/stay-at-home mom, used to have dreams that she was running through campus, naked and wearing a trenchcoat. The only problem was that she was running and pooping at the same time. She said that she was running and this guy ran up beside her and said, "Hey! You're poopin'!" and she would say, "I know!" and keep running.
