I put this on Facebook and got this comment:-

Not a bike, a Plymouth Fury apparently: The actual Bible verse that tells us the Lord did indeed drive a Plymouth Fury is Jeremiah, chapter 32. Verse 37 reads "Behold, I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven them in mine anger, and in my Fury, and in great wrath; and I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely:" This passage leaves no doubt that the Lord did in fact drive a Fury."


I heard this too, and about 10 minutes later it occurred to me that it was April Fools' Day.


It took me about the same time. I was telling this to a friend who was an English academic, and when I got to the bit about the translation of donkey as "pack animal" she started hunting round her flat for translations of the bible.
