The beautiful, brave and brilliant Paulette Cooper sent me a note about the new book she authored with Tony Ortega of Underground Bunker fame.
I have not had a chance to read it yet, but Paulette is a wonderful writer and Tony has an encyclopedic knowledge of scientology so I feel certain that I cannot go wrong in recommending it. Tony’s blog is a wealth of invaluable information that has been accumulating for years. It truly is the scientology wikipedia. I tell people if they cannot find what they are looking for about scientology on the Bunker it probably doesn’t exist. And this is a selection of “greatest hits” from his blog. You can purchase it on Amazon.
Along with her message, Paulette included some jokes I thought everyone would enjoy. A Sunday Funnies to complement the Thursday Funnies.
Here is the message from Paulette and her jokes:
Tony Ortega and I wrote a book together titled “BATTLEFIELD SCIENTOLOGY: Exposing L. Ron Hubbard’s Dangerous ‘Religion.’” It’s based on Tony’s popular blog posts, and it’s all about Tom Cruise, people who have died in Scientology, the crazy nonsense they spout, the people they hurt, etc. It’s available on amazon, in paperback ($19.95) and kindle ($8.99) The 354-page book has 30+ chapters and 30+ photos. You can also order it through firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, while you’re (hopefully still) reading this, you (especially former Scientologists) might get a kick out of these (mostly anti-Miscavige) jokes sent to me by Jim Goettel.
A Mormon, a Jew and a Scientologist walk into a bar. After a few minutes, a drunk walks in screaming and yelling. The Jew calmly says “do not curse, for it is a sin.” The Mormon calmly says “do not use the Lord’s name in vain, for it is ungodly”. And the Scientologists runs up to him, grabs him by the shirt and yells “what are your crimes?!”
The Mormon, Jew and Scientologist discuss what they would do if their doctor told them that they had only six weeks to live. The Jew said “there are lots of great books I have never read. I would read all of those.” The Mormon says “I have lots of relatives I have never met. I would visit each and every one of them. And the Scientologist says “I don’t know. What would Ron do?”
The Mormon, Jew and Scientologist become regulars, and get nicknames. The Mormon is called Noah’s Ark, because his family is so large. The Jew is called Einstein because he is so well-educated. And the Scientologist is called Dunkin’ Donuts because his eyes were always glazed.
David Miscavige, Mariah Carey and Michael Jordan all die on the same day. They arrive at the Pearly Gates, where St. Peter says “before I can let you in, you must show me who you are.” Carey belts out one of her best songs. St. Peter says “I’m convinced,” and lets her in. Jordan then dribbles a ball behind his back, behind his legs and does a reverse lay up. St. Peter says “I’m convinced” and lets him in. Then he turns to Miscavige and says “it’s your turn. Show me that you are David Miscavige.” So Miscavige starts punching him.
