Publisher replies to God: "Sorry, but..."

God gets a pink slip from his publishers for his manuscript. The publishers are less than impressed:
  • too much violence. "Also, it appears to be written mostly in ancient Hebrew."
  • too much talk of begatting and not enough "on the begatting process" -- "our readers like a bit of tit and cock."
  • a suggested appeal to the sci-fi market by the inclusion of a "a scene with lasers and a couple of androids."
  • abandoning the fantasy market for some 'chick lit.'
Read it all here. [Hat tip Mark D. Firestone]
