Always outnumbered. Generally overdresssed.

Gone to Ireland




So obviously I thought I'd post this long copy ad I wrote and never submitted for Scamp's atheist advertising competition last year. The style owes something to Dave Trott.

UPDATE: I've been getting stick, online and off, for typos and have now overhauled the above, which I did in a hurry and then posted after an interval of several months. If you spot typos on this blog, pleased don't be afraid to point them out, I won't poke fun at you for being a miserable pedant or anything.

it's worse than my submissions to that competition you ran with the mannequins.

As C S Lewis said, "...on a level with the man who says he is a poached egg."

(Although, being C. S. Lewis, he was arguing from the other side.)

why didn't you submit it? Is it because it would only work on a Tube platform?

Or did you realise that trying to convince committed Christians that Jesus was a mad man is a bit of an uphill battle seeing as they're all a bit twitchy anyway.

Mike, do you want me to rake over your submissions to the Mannequin Competition? Obviously you've forgotten.

This is my new wallpaper, should annoy a few people at work, which is how I like it.

Where's your end line, Gordo? Jeez Louise.

"Christianity. It's all bollocks, innnit?"

There you go. Whack that beauty on there and you'll be walking away with a lion under your arm and a spring in your step.

Don't worry. No need to thank me.
