There's always one isn't there? One with the rate combination of jolly humour and sharp ability as a noticer. This makes no contribution to the thorny question of "is it okay to make a joke about God, or is he hyper-sensitive about it?", 'cos it addresses the fun and games of us lesser beings. Trouble is, many Christians can't take a joke and as the over-sensitivity approaches hysteria in some circles, no doubt flak will fly. This compilation CD includes two formerly tape only releases 'Hot Air For Jesus' and 'No Tomorrow', one new track and the essential rib-tickling Sign & Wonder game as a special treat. If you have never tried some Catley capers, go on and give yourself a treat, it could do you a power of good. As someone said, "Blessed is he who can laugh at himself, for he shall never cease to be entertained." Let's appreciate the man and the therapy he offers.
