Thanking God

by | 25th, November 2003

‘LET me pray. I’d like to thank God for giving me the buttocks to sit on this chair, the money to buy a computer to write on and the desire to sit up all night watching television.

A divine Messenger

It’s good to thank the Divine one for things once in a while.

Take celebrities who love thanking God. “Thank you, God,” says the boxer after he’s knocked seven shades of something brown out of his opponent.

“Thank you, God,” says the actress as she accepts her award for faking an orgasm in a movie. “Thank you, God,” says the singer as he receives his award for singing about blowin’ people away and taking drugs.

God clearly has lots to be thanked for. And tonight Michael Buerk (The Hand of God, 10:35pm) asks a few notables about their relationship with the bestower of gifts.

Earlier, at 9pm on Channel 4, Piers Morgan, the editor of the Mirror newspaper, meets some other recipients of winning tickets in God’s lucky dip in The Importance Of Being Famous.

Ulrika Jonsson (thank God for men), Melinda Messenger (thank God for silicon), Linda Barker (thank God for jungles) and Simon Cowell (thank God he‘s not my dad), talk about being famous.

Meanwhile we ask how in God’s name any of this bunch of self-aggrandising vanity cases ever made it. God only knows.’
