I do definitely remember reading the New Testament and thinking, "You know, this would be better with more fart jokes."
Like I said, there was a weird enclave of Moonies around my home town and they were quite obnoxious, even in matters unrelated to their religious beliefs. It was like a social club for really maladjusted white professor-types.
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.
Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.
His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
