Chairman Jesus

In July 1979, company officials at the Concrete Pipe Corp. in Menasha, Wisconsin decided to elect Jesus Christ as the new chairman of their board. The decision was unanimous.

When asked what address they were going to supply to the state for the new chairman, the company president, Don Koepke, explained, "We'll say, 'wherever two or more are gathered in his name.'"

The company had been in existence for 45 years. As far as I can tell, it survived for about another eight years under Jesus's leadership, closing in 1987.

This brings to mind a little ditty by Martin Mull. (You did know he really got his start in stand-up and musical comedy?)

So let's give Jesus Christ the football
let him even up the score
let him run it through the crossbars
and be on the cross no more
