Newly published joke from JRR Tolkien

Provokes one of those "supertruth" laughs (as RM Pirsig called them) - at my Notion Club Papers blog

That's very good. I, for one, can hardly wait to see the drawing (though I don't really need to)!

As an aside, the mistaken premise that "Nobody knows what he's like" within the joke started me many Christians believe that to be true?

@Frank - ""Nobody knows what he's like"[] many Christians believe that to be true?"

Mormons would disagree, for a start. And I think they're correct; in the sense that (because we are made in His image - implying the opposite also) God the Father would-be/ is recognizably a man in form.
