Barnyard Friends

I asked for recommendations for books that were magical, funny, uplifting, life-changing or possibly all of the above.  A couple of people suggested Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's childhood pal.

What a fantastic fucking book.  It almost made me Christian.  I got so attached to Jesus I didn't want it to end, which just shows how well I know my bible stories.

I wanted to quote from it for Magic Chalkboard Monday, because it has so many great lines, not the least of which is "Blessed are the dumbfucks."  But then I remembered this one, which is something I wish I could have tattooed on the inside of my brain.

And since we're talking about lamb, here is Tony on this past weekend's episode of Wiretap on CBC, sharing the story of his childhood crush on a goat.  

Don't say I didn't warn you.



  1. "Biff" is one of my all time favourite books. The first time I read it I laughed out loud. The second time, I laughed to myself. I have given it as a gift to three people.

  2. I foresee giving it as a gift to a lot of people, Shawn - it is such a great book, all round.
