New Play on an Old Joke

THEN I SAW another mighty angel coming down from Heaven, wrapped in a cloud, with a rainbow over his head, and his face was like the sun, and his legs like pillars of fire. He had a little scroll open in his hand. And he set his right foot on the sea, and his left foot on the land, and called out with a loud voice, like a lion roaring; when he called out, the seven thunders sounded. And when the seven thunders had sounded, I was about to write, but I heard a voice from Heaven saying, "Seal up what the seven thunders have said, and do not write it down."

-- The Revelation to John, 10:1-4

Verily, we can assure you what the seven thunders said. They said: "The Cubs will again win in the postseason."
