This line is spoken by an angel in Lamb: the Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal, by Christopher Moore. I've been sitting here reading it at work (I've only managed to read three pages) and I want to laugh out loud in the library. I hope it follows through with its promise of hilarity to the very end, although I'm guessing not, since Biff, in his love for his friend, Jesus, has made it his mission to prevent Christ's crucifixion. How can this be funny? It's surprising how some writers can take topics that have no humor in them and make them funny. Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett do this in Good Omens -- a Revelations-themed novel, where there's a mixup with the anti-Christ.
I'm also reading, thanks to babelbabe, Stones from the River and Voices from Chernobyl. Stones from the River is excellent, three chapters in. Voices from Chernobyl is almost impossible to read -- it's so gut-wrenching.
