ShitMyGodSays

It’s a year away from being published, but I’m already excited about former Daily Show executive producer David Javerbaum‘s upcoming book (PDF):

… David Javerbaum’s untitled book… will be published as the memoir of God, “Supreme Being, wellspring of existence, quintessence of glory, and source of everlasting life“… for publication in late 2011…

The idea of parodying God is nothing new, but Javerbaum is hilarious and I’m sure the book will reflect that. Much like it did in his previous (co-authored) works Earth (The Book) and American (The Book).

The as-yet-untitled testament which [Publisher Jonathan] Karp says he plans to publish in late 2011 — in time for the busy pre-Armageddon retail season — will be semi-autobiographical in nature…

The book will in part be a look back on His career, starting with the Garden of Eden (“That’s right, I did create Adam and Steve. And they were a great couple… until they ate of The Tree of the Knowledge That You’re Gay”). From there, God will move on to address such hot-button topics as prayer in school (“I have never answered a single prayer that I’ve received from a public school. I just don’t think it’s right”) and evolution (“Planting the millions of pieces of evidence for evolution was one of the most exhausting things I’ve ever had to do. But it was worth it to see the looks on the faces of Darwinian biologists when they die and realize they’re in hell.”) He will also put to rest long-standing disputes concerning which athletes and teams he actually supports, and will offer his “inside picks” for the next ninety-three Super Bowls.

With regard to a title, Karp refused to confirm that either he — or He — is considering “S—t My God Says.”

And in case you missed it, here’s my interview with Javerbaum from The Amazing Meeting 8.

  • Late 2011 is clearly not going to beat the pre-armageddon retail season by much, seeing how the end is going to come on October 21, 2011.

    Ok, it seemed a little silly, but this one sold me: Attention: Until further notice, I will no longer answer prayers from, or listen to, anyone claiming to be “Margaret”.

  • Sven

    Seems like a book I would enjoy reading!

  • There is only one god on Twitter and his name is @almightygod.

    Huh?!

    Not listening, not answering prayers. So what else is new?

  • Jeff

    It will outrage Christians, and anything that does that is, by definition, a good thing.
