NOT an April Fool's Joke

The same folks who brought you the British campaign, seen on the sides of buses, which proclaimed, "There Probably is no God so stop worrying and enjoy your life", are now offering "De-Baptismal" certificates.

The first response I saw to this was pretty good. How do you undo an ontological change? I would have thought it was a metaphysical change - but I'm not sure now which is right.

However, the funniest response is this:

What about "de-circumcision certificates" for folks [men] who wanted to renounce being made Jewish at birth. I think the accompanying reversal procedure would be very interesting.

I have a one word response, uttered in behalf of all my male friends -- OUCH!
