The archangel Gabriel tells God he's concerned:
"You've been working pretty hard, Lord, creating stuff and running the universe and all that. You deserve some time off."
"Well, Gabe, I did rest on the seventh day, you know."
"Sure, Lord, but that was a long time ago. Why don't you knock off for a couple of weeks, go somewhere quiet, and just relax?"
"Anyplace in particular you recommend, Gabe?"
"I'd suggest one of those outlying planets where not much ever happens. How about a vacation on Earth?"
"For Christ's sake, Gabe, don't you remember? I took my last vacation there! It's a pest-hole of gossipy small-minded provincials, even if I do say so myself. I started out having a great time. Met this cute little Jewish girl, had a bit of a fling, but it's two thousand years later and they're still talking about it!"
