Gotta get a system

by Richard on April 23, 2008

PETER: Well, we need a system.

JESUS: A system?

PETER: Yes, a system - so we can be more efficient, more productive.

JESUS: I see.

PETER: We need to establish goals and set targets.

JESUS: “Goals” and “targets”, yes.

PETER: We need to prioritise.

JESUS: Yes, “prioritise”.

PETER: We need to monitor, evaluate, assess.

JESUS: “Monitor”, “evaluate”, “assess”.

PETER: I was thinking of a focus group, a performance-review team, and a market-research unit; and we’ll want a data-extrapolation consultant and, obviously, a director of finance. I was thinking Judas is the man for the job.

JESUS: Thinking, Peter - or calculating?

A while ago, Kim wrote this Jesus & Peter sketch which has more than a little relevance to some recent conversations. Today it has been reblogged (with some revisions, which should give the textual critics something to think about) over at Faith and Theology.

Humourlessness is hell.
