ACT 1

Jesus and Apostle enter a bar...



Joss Whedon sat by himself at a keyboard, feeling helpless
and hopeless because feminists had burned him with his own
sword.

                      BUFFY
          Take that motherfucker!

                      JOSS
          Goddammit, he like my artwork
          didn't he.

Just then, Mike telports into a bar and sits next to
Jesus...

                      MIKE
          Ah, I think the movie was better
          than the TV show!

                      JESUS AND JOSS
          What!

                      MIKE
          You have technology and our spying
          on people's private lives! We'll
          kill you for it...

Love, the underclass...

                      JESUS AND JOSS
          I told you they have more
          priniciples that won't be
          compromised.

Just then, Apostle Paul sits in a prison cell, shackled, but
not without a servant to transcibe his thoughts onto paper.

                      SERVANT
          Ah, they have prinicples that won't
          be compromised!

                      PAUL
          I never said that!

                      MIKE
                (in 2018)
          I will kill you motherfuckers for
          what you're doing!

                      JOSS
          You're schizophrenic!!!

Just then, Joss Wedon's ex-wife walks in on this scene.

                      WIFE
          Joss, where did you get this idea
          for that TV show where technology
          is going to be used to make rich
          people immortal?

                      JOSS
          I heard it about somewhere.
          I--um--I apoloigze for cheating on
          you.

                      WIFE
                (smiles...)


                      MIKE
          And that's why they die horrific
          deaths...

                      JOSS
          We're all lyers aren't we?

                      MIKE
          Joss, who you talking to? I think
          you're schizophrenic bro.

                      WIFE
          I left him two years ago for this
          very reason...

                      PAUL
          My work is being manipulated by
          scribes and pharisees... Why didn't
          Jesus help?

                      JESUS AND JOSS
          Becuase Jesus is vindictive as
          fuck.

                      PAUL
          As he should be!

                      SCRIBE
          And they are all sinners!
          (misquote, threw away my bible, but
          will find quote again)

                      PAUL
          And that's how it happend...

                      JOSS
          I've seen things I can't talk
          about...

                      JESUS AND JOSS
          Then get a therapist?

                      MIKE
          So this is how it works?

The end...
