HEADS UP, READERS!
This audience for this blog post/link is Christ-followers, but some non-believers may find it funny, too.
Even if you don’t know who is Paul Washer, this satirical article will be funny, but if you have ever heard him (and what he has said about Joel, which is not funny) it will actually be uproarious! (My son was trying to read it aloud to me and was struggling to get through it.)

If you would like to get better appreciation for why it’s funny, here’s a link to a relevant YouTube video:
[BTW, if you have ever rolled your eyes at the (not all, but most) fake preachers on TV and then changed channels, you’ll like the vid, because he’s right.]
[2nd and 3rd BTWs: Oh, and in case you can’t tell, that pic from the article is modified AND the video’s background music was added by the person who uploaded it because I know the full vid, and Paul would never have that kind of stuff.]
Oh, and some of you will be offended. You have been warned.
