Thanks to some idiot who sent me an email slandering Islam and the Koran, I found myself studying the Qur'an, which has most of the best Old Testament stories in it - sometimes with an interesting twist ...

You hear this one story told by someone. It is a great story. Later on, you hear this same thriller told by someone else. It remains a great crowd-pleaser, but something in the tale has changed.

We all know the story about Moses bringing his people out of Egypt. Here is the Hebrew version. There goes Moses and the Jews, hot footing it across the desert. Here comes the grumpy Pharoah, chasing those Jews with his legions. It is a race to the death. The Jews come to the Red Sea and God splits the waters to make a dry escape path across the sea. The Jews sprint across there in record time. Ole Pharoah and his rabid legions are right behind, gaining every minute. The Jews and Moses get to the other side. The legions almost catch the Jews when, SWOOSH, the divided sea collapses and drowns the Pharoah's armies. Would you believe, all those mighty legion guys and not one life preserver? Terrible situation. Well, after all that exertion, we are looking at some very hungry Jews. So God rains down manna from Heaven upon them and they all get to chow down. Pretty neat, huh!

Later on, the Prophet Muhammad hears this same story. Jews fleeing Egypt, grumpy Pharoah, evil legions, Red Sea being divided; what a great chase scene. Yada yada, yada. Legions are drowned and Jews are famished. So God rains down manna from Heaven and quails upon them and they all get to chow down. Quails! Now you're talking. Quails are cool!

Heck, if I was a Hebrew, I might switch to Islam. Muslims got quails! I am not too sure about that manna from Heaven; it sounds like angelic tofu to me. Later on, when you get to Prophet Ted's version, you may hear: "So God rains down quails and double cheesburgers upon them and they all get to pig out." You betcha!
