TV Network GSN announced on Wednesday plans for a new show called “The American Bible Challenge”. On the show, redneck comedian Jeff Foxworthy will grill contestants about their knowledge of the Bible. The contestants will represent various faith-based organizations and their winnings will go to those charities. GSN said the questions will be “designed to acknowledge and celebrate the Bible’s continuing importance in contemporary life and culture.”
The only question now: is this the greatest TV show idea of all time, or the greatest idea of all time, period? I mean, isn’t Bible study just the best? Oh Bible, who needs friends when I can quiz myself about the Ritual Decalogue and whether or not it forbids us to cook a child in its mother’s milk? Isn’t this fun?!
On that note, here are a few other questions they should ask on the show:
In Samuel 5:9, why did God decide to give all the men of the city “hemorrhoids in their secret parts”?
In Malachi 2:3, who threatened to “spread dung upon your faces”?
In 2 Kings 2:23, was the bald man who was taunted by the children justified in calling upon two bears from the woods to maul forty-two of them to death?
Also worth nothing is that the producers of “The American Bible Challenge”, RelativityREAL, are the same producers of the barely legal Showtime series “Gigolos”, which documents the lives of real men who get paid to have sex with women in Las Vegas.
