Repeat, Repeat, Repeat

What can I say about Chapter 69? I could say “You already said that”. In fact, I did, for pretty much every verse. It's just one Korancronym after another: judgment days a-coming, bad people go to hell, good people get fruit. The only thing I highlighted was that in hell they drag around a chain 70 cubits long (v32) and only eat “corruption from the washing of wounds”(v36). Lovely.

I'm not making a blog post out of that! I just skipped on to Chapter 70. Nuthin' here either. It only plugs slavery again, v29-30 repeats that exact line from ch23. Screw that, go to Chapter 78, still nuthin', JAC, NAM, YAGTH, GWFYU, ... Jesus, Mo, say something new! ... Chapter 82, JAC, YAGH, JAC ... it says there's an angel writing everything down, wait, it's already said that too. Skip it, although the first few verses do seem kinda poetic, telling about the last day. There's a little more of that in Chapter 84, too, and then he gets all frustrated and asks

20 What then is the matter with them, that they believe not?-
21 And when the Qur'an is read to them, they fall not prostrate,

Damn, I can't imagine, there must be SOMEthing wrong with people that don't fall for Nuclear Babies or Penises. Old Mo just can't figure it out. Hey, maybe it's because you're just a LOUSY SALESMAN. You couldn't convince anybody in the first place and for the last half dozen verses you just keep repeating the same old pitch that hasn't worked. What'd Einstein say about doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results? Maybe they're just SANE.

On the bright side, if this keeps up I'll be done with the whole book in a week.

Mo was just following the proud tradition of the bible, which contains the genesis story twice, with different details, and the whole jesus story four times.
