Bible Quiz #2

Quiz #2 from the lovely Crystal

When the prophet Elisha came out of the water, 42 little children teased him by saying "Go up, thou bald head!" How did Elisha react?
A. He cursed their children, and their children's children to be   bald.
B. He ran away crying, clutching his head in shame.
C. He called upon two bears to tear the children limb from limb.
D. He laughed at their innocent joke, and gave them gifts of sweets and shoes.
Again, I was surprised to see a Bible story I didn't even recognize! Oh, and since I didn't check the answer before posting this, I'm going to guess A... although I'm particularly fond of answer C. 
What do you think?


  1. The god of the Bible isn't much for irony, nor is he terribly creative. If he were, perhaps answer A would be right. This god deals in extremes and death. The hilarious thing is that someone was convinced that having god compel two bears to kill 42 children was a good way to end that story.

    Pro life indeed!
