The Wise And The Foolish Builders

So, according to The Burble, JC and his Sunshine Gang used to go around telling tales with a meaning to them. One of such Parables was that of The Wise And The Foolish Builders. This was The Burble version of The 3 Little Pigs.

The Parable

JC rambled on a bit about this and that and then said "Those who listen to me will be like a builder who builds his house on a rock and when the rain falls and the wind blows it will still be there. Those who don't listen to me, will be like the foolish builder, and when the storm comes all will be washed away"

Therefore, according to JC, there were 2 little piggies who built houses. The first one built his on the beach and the big bad wolf (played by god) huffs and puffs and blows his house down.

The second little piggy, with a degree in structural engineering, built his house on rock. When the big bad god came and huffed and puffed, the little piggy just laughed as fuck all happened to his house.

Of course, this takes no account of igloos at all, which aren't built on rock or sand and they seem to hold up pretty well. Or treehouses either like they have in the Amazon (which were probably quite ok when god had his etch-a-sketch tantrum and flooded the world).

In fact it also doesn't account for the piggies who lived in caves either - cave-pigs.

Perhaps it was because JC and his ragged band of followers only pissed around on the edge of the Sea of Galilee and assumed everyone wanted a beach front property?

In retrospect, it might have been better if JC had said 'If you listen me, I'll tell me dad to stop pissing about with the weather and everyone will be happy'.

They rarely talk about the 4th piggy. He was the one that got high all the time and ate bacon.

Lots of people built their houses on rocks - in the west country - and then found they were living on - is it radium? Something not good to build a house on.
