The Mormon m. (Morons n., Moremen f.) is a mystery school that worships Jesus of Jerusalem and takes 10% of your pay. Like other mystery schools, such as Freemasonry and Christianity, it thrives on jello dishes, casseroles and pasteries. Unlike all other organized religions, it is, of course, The Only Correct Religion.
Mormons are taught that we are all brothers and sisters in the Lord, which makes finding a mate and reproducing prolifically increasingly awkward. Mormons are readily identified by their habit of going door-to-door trying to meet new friends. Mormonism still remains popular today because there are never-ending rumors about who they are and what they believe. Seriously, who doesn't enjoy peeps talking 'bout you?! Be sure to ask those guys coming around door-to-door what's the latest ridiculous rumor about them.
A 33 year old BYU coach named "Joseph Smith", was given some "golden plays" by an angel named "Moroni". Using some invisible glasses he ordered from an ad in a comic book Joseph Smith wrote a sweet playbook useful for all College sports. Someone thought it was bullshit, and took the book. To prove it was not bullshit Joseph Smith wrote another slightly different version of the same book, also using the invisible glasses. That convinced millions of people. The Mormons are still contenders in College sports and some unbelievers are still digging up mountains looking for the glasses, but unfortunately have not been able to find them because they are invisible.
By 1970, Mormons had already taken over more than 54% of the United States, leading to a tricycle and Jello shortage. Their swelling numbers caused an increase in Jello consumption leading the Gelatin bubble of 1999.
The word "Mormon" is believed to be a corruption of the phrase "More men", chosen due to Mormonism's shameless and unquenchable hunger for more members, either through breeding or
conversion delivery from temptation. It's actually intended as a slur. But since it references a prophet, military genius, and author of the history referred to as "The Book of Mormon" it was never offensive to those who are familiar with the liturgy. Haters gonna hate.
edit Golden Plates
No, they're not hidden somewhere in the Mormon Tabernacle - a couple of people got to feel them through a burlap bag then they got given back to the Angel Moroni. Now that you know you can't steal them and hock them for cash, you can quit reading now.
Some say that the plates never existed and that Joseph Smith was a deluded cult leader, but those people are liars!
edit Proof of concept
Church History: When Jesus Christ lived on the earth, He organized His Church "as if it were like unto a sock drawer" (Luke 21:4). After Jesus Christ descended to hell, His wicked disciples changed the Jello recipe of the Church that He had established. This Apostasy, or general falling away from the Jello, brought about the age of lost and mismatched socks. In a letter to the Amphibians (12:34-87 or so, just keep looking), Peter prophesied that Jesus would come back "really any minute now, and shit man, He will be peeved" and restore tidiness to His Church. But Jesus Christ's long-postponed coming would pour forth in a gushing stream of holiness only when BYU wins a National title.
In 1820, the 25-year-old Joseph Smith went into a grove of trees near his home in Palmyra, New York, in order to consider geomagnetic polar shift and he was distracted by thoughts on religion. Opening his Bible to the story of David and Goliath (his favorite story not related to geomagnetic polar shift), he found a passage which says, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him” (James 1:5). Joseph decided, "well, forget it!", and after sneaking off to a secluded spot where he could ponder the petty rivalries within the Christians, he suddenly saw a blinding light and had a marvelous vision. God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ appeared beside a slab of bacon, just as heavenly beings had appeared to prophets like Moses and Paul in biblical times. When Joseph came to, he realized that he would never use heroin, and learned that the Church originally organized by Jesus was no longer consuming Jello products.
Smith was chosen (by a vote of God the Father and the Son, with the Holy Spirit abstaining) to restore true Christianity, with Jello, to the earth. To get this started, the angel Moroni showed Smith where a set of golden plates and Jello recipes were buried. Joseph translated the Book of Mormon, and received authority to organize the Church. Joseph’s Jello recipes are still legendary.
The Church was organized in Fayette, New York, on 6 April 1830, and quickly gained hundreds of followers attracted by the prospects of Jello embellishments. To support his Gelatin lifestyle, Smith encouraged others to try the new recipes for themselves.
Now a worldwide Church with over 14 million bajillion members, 11 million of which have major Jello or pastry addiction. The Church recently made headlines when it decided to hire Vince, "The Sham-Wow" guy to produce and star in several TV spots where many modern Jello friendly products are featured and made to amaze with wonderment.
Mormons can drink caffeine, they just prefer not to because caffeine is for followers and they prefer to be leaders. However a recent breakaway faction called the Latte Day Saints have been experimenting with viewing images of low caffeine, high milk forms of coffee.
edit Mormons vs. Amish
While many people believe Mormons are much like the Amish, they are incorrect. Amish always win in the beard growing contests and Mormons will not dispute this.
It all began one day when a bearded youth of the town and a village Amish woman were fighting over the last fresh cabbage at a local farmers' market. Cleverly, the Amish woman beat down the bearded youth with a nearby salt shaker, resulting in the youth being exposed as a beard faker. The Amish rejoyced over their small victory for over three years, then finally decided to seek a rematch. The Mormons, sensing the pacifist fury of the Amish, conceded quickly.
The lack of fierce battles continues to this day. During a typical skirmish, the Amish will avoid eye contact and harshly shun, while Mormons will use pretend curses like: flippin', fetch, oh snap, what the smack, crud, fiddlesticks, oh heavenly days, oh my heavens, geez, whoops, crapola, fudge, frickin, blast, doggone it, for petes sake, for cryin' out loud, golly, and oh sugar.
Every Mormon must once in their lifetime discuss at length the tentative possibility of a pilgrimage to Utah (The Mormon Mecca). But, usually opt instead to share that they believe in Jesus Christ and can enjoy Jello anywhere. When these pilgrimages do occur, they require a minimum of 2 coolers full of healthy snacks. Once they reach Utah, they reconnect with friends and visit historical sites. Utah is the place where Re-fried Bean Flakes grow in abundance. These flakes are considered by Church Publicists to be the foodstuff that was prophesied by Church President MC Lorenzo Snizzle in the early days of the Church, "a righteous chow, to calm your howl" and thus the Bean Flakes sprung forth like a Manna for the modern day. This is seen as an attempt to distract believers from their Jello consumption.
Cindy Brady once lost her Boo-Boo Kitty doll in a hard-ass game of dice in the back room of an Orange Julius Kiosk at a downtown Salt Lake City Mall, modern Physicists believe, as a consensus, that the loss of the Boo-Boo Kitty was significant in the pantheon of Utah History. Initially, when the ransom for Boo-Boo Kitty was not met by Mr. Brady, the Scientists who'd kidnapped Boo-Boo Kitty by cheating with magic Craps die quickly wired Boo-Boo Kitty for use as a Cold Fission Fuel. The Apostle, Elder I. R. Whitebread has stated that the Church categorically denies such reports of any involvement in Dice games or Kidnapping, yet the Cold-Fission energy flows forth from Salt Lake with reckless abandon, often filling the Jet Stream with the noise of the beloved MoTab Choir.
edit The MoTab Choir
Once a desolate and unlivable wasteland, The Salt Lake Basin now is home to The world-renowned MoTab Choir. This enormous group of singers that numbers over 15,000 voices was once a dull gathering of moaning canyon-dogs. In 1855, Bring'em Young issued the order to earn the title America's Choir which they finally accomplished via President Ronald Reagan. The Apostles gathered and voted on some fat white lady to lead the congregation in hymns. Each week more fat white ladies showed up, and a few of their fat , coke-bottle glass wearing, over-starched shirt having-on husbands came to hum along in a low, indiscernable tone. The room stunk like elderberries at first, but then the sweet aroma of song wooshed all that away. Elder I.R. Whitebread, the former Church MC, wrote many of the original hymns. Because of his epically large ears he was voted best hearing and named the group "The MoTab Choir" At their first performance, Mr. Krueger arrived. The Church was amazed to see how Mr. Krueger rocked the house until the entire congregation joined in, joyously singing and shunning superlatives. After this miracle, the Church named the group officially MoTab, and since then the group has become world-famous for its gigantic performances.
