And it came to pass Kim was amused and did snicker exceedlingly, yea, she did even disrupt the chapel and the quietness therein was torn asunder.

Have I ever mentioned I love when people paraphrase scripture using modern-day language?

This recent gem tickled my funny bone.

Actual scriptural text:
And I beheld that [the fruit] was most sweet, above all that I ever before tasted. (1 Nephi 8:11)

As quoted over the pulpit:
And Lehi said, "Golly! This fruit is yummy!" (member of bishopric)

That's my weekly job as a Sunbeam teacher - translate the scriptures from Old English to Toddlerese. "Golly! This fruit is yummy!" will be a near perfect translation, if I do it my Goofy voice!
