Deities Scramble after Bus Crash

This puts a new spin on the phrase "rush hour of the gods."

In the gods' haste to resolve the matter, some of the souls were apparently misplaced. In one instance, an adherent of Buddhism slated to be reborn into an Ohio family was temporarily reincarnated as a tree sloth. And as of press time, a self-avowed atheist who at the last minute took God into his heart has yet to be retrieved from the void and placed among the faithful.

Hee hee. Reminds me of the joke about the guy who goes to the Summerlands and wanders around, saying "Hello Mr Singh", "Hello Mrs Christodoulos", "Hello Mr Patel", Hello Mrs Waheed", "Hello Moondust Flowerpetal", "Hello Mr Cohen" to all his friends from various different religions, but then comes up against a wall. He walks along the outside of the wall and eventually comes back to where he started. He is puzzled, so stops a passer-by and says, "What's this wall?" The other says, "Oh, that's the fundamentalist Christians in there, they think they're the only ones here."
