You Might Be a Baha’i

While some people think they are Baha’is and are told that they, in fact, are not, others are Baha’is and simply don’t know it. Therefore, as a public service, here are some helpful clues that you may actually be a Baha’i:

You might be a Bah??’?…

  • …if you’ve been divorced and still need your mommy and daddy’s permission to get married again.
  • …if a movie star offers you a night of passion and your response is “Um … can I investigate your character?”
  • …if you get more excited by LSA than LSD.
  • …if the only smoke you envision when you hear the phrase “joint feast” is from overdone tadiq.
  • …if you think March Madness is the result of extreme hunger.
  • …if you see “Some Assembly Required” written on a box and you think it came from a place that needs homefront pioneering.
  • …if you overhear your friends discussing ‘the ITC’s new IPG with Ruhi to be an A-Cluster’, and actually understand what they are talking about.
  • …if you see a real estate billboard that says “Fully Detached Community” and you drive on saying “We’re not needed here”.
  • …if it’s the Ides of March and your stomach growls and you answer the pager on your belt.
  • …if your idea of the perfect family vacation is to wait for ten years, climb a mountain on foot where there are no casinos, no golf or tennis, you have to stay quiet, stand in line, cannot take pictures, visit a lot of gravesites, and at the end of ten days they kick you out of the country.

    Those are hilarious! And all true. Especially the last one about 9 day pilgrimage. Really funny :) Anyway, I’m a Baha’i…randomly found a few other Bahai’s by searching all the blogs, and I didn’t even expect to find any! Any other links to other Baha’is blogs would be brilliant :)
    Love & peace xx

    Ana, sometimes the best Baha’i comics are ones which aren’t “Baha’i” at all.

    I’ve also got a script that works reasonably well to create a large array of AO-speak mission statements. Like this:

    Statement no. 26:
    It is our responsibility to systematically integrate global collective endeavours and also coherently learn unifying clusters and continue to energetically split infinitives of effective collaboration and idea-sharing to gain an understanding of the dynamics of human resource development.
