Dad Has Funny Response To Easter Play Permission Slip

David Thorne received a permission slip from his child’s school for his child to participate in an Easter performance.

Thorne studied the graphically designed permission slip — both its artwork and its text and had a few rather comical opinions on it!

Fortunately for us all, Thorne uploaded his exchange and shared it with the world.  If you need a good laugh, keep reading!

Read his hilarious email exchange with the school’s Chaplain.

Dear Darryl,

I have received your permission slip featuring what I can only assume is a levitating rabbit about to drop an egg on Jesus.

Thank you for pre-ticking the permission box as this has saved me not only from having to make a choice, but also from having to make my own forty five degree downward stroke followed by a twenty percent longer forty five degree upward stroke. Without your guidance, I may have drawn a picture of a cactus wearing a hat by mistake.

As I trust my offspring’s ability to separate fact from fantasy, I am happy for him to participate in your indoctrination process on the proviso that all references to ‘Jesus’ are replaced with the term ‘Purportedly Magic Jew.’

Regards, David.

Hello David

The tick in the box already was a mistake I noticed after printing them all. I’ve seen the play and it’s not indoctrinating anyone. It’s a fun play performed by a great bunch of kids. You do not have to be religious to enjoy it. You are welcome to attend if you have any concerns.
