The Extra 25 Commandments
In 1954 a leading French Archeologist while on a simple tour of Belgium
uncovered an ancient manuscript dating back to BC. After twelve years of
strenuous translation the document was locked away in the vaults of a
Parisian church and forgotten.
I can now reveal to you the contents of the document. It turned out to be
... So I said to Him, "Listen G-d, each one of those buggers must weigh at
least 60 pounds each!", "I could maybe take one or two but the other five
are just gonna have to stay!".
Moses: "Yeah. Like I suggested he could at least put them on parchment but
just made Him sulk! It took me 6 bloody weeks to get up that sodding

Int: "So there were more than 10 Commandments then?"
Moses: "Oh Sure! Originally 35 of the beggars! Some really obscure shit
too. I jotted them down but people didn't listen to me. If it wasn't etched
in stone tablets they didn't want to know!"
Int: "And you still have these notes?"
Moses: "Yup! I tried teaching the extra Commandments to people but they
didn't understand them. Can't blame `em really. He said they would come in
useful one day ..."
Int: "Can you tell me the extra Commandments?"
Moses: "Alright. (Rustle, Rustle) Ah, here we are ..."

Shaitan, Auld Nick, Satan, Apolyon, Enemy of Mankind, Ahriman, Eblis ..."
Int: "You're mad, aren't you!"
Moses (Richard): "Erm, yeah. I'll go away shall I?"
And there you go. Had the pressure of carrying the full commandments around
with him his whole life sent Moses insane? Or was he, as he claimed,
denizen of the Evil One trying to taint the minds of others with false
commandments? Or, as is most probable, did the interview just pick out any
passing psycho he found in the street? You decide...
