Jesus was famous for bringing his bowling ball cannon to all the old Jerusalem pig roasts. The Romans eventually got fed up with it and had a word with him.

Seriously though, what could go wrong?

I can’t imagine a better person to find 150 bowling balls. Especially since otherwise you can’t recycle them.

well dagnabbit, 150 is neither a square pyramidal nor tetrahedral stacking number
(roll ten of them down the hill on a moonless night then you can make a nice 'cannon’ball stack)

This is an old prank. See, what you do is, you let 149 bowling balls loose in someone’s house. But you number them 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109, 110, 111, 112, 113, 114, 115, 116, 118, 119, 120, 121, 122, 123, 124, 125, 126, 127, 128, 129, 130, 131, 132, 133, 134, 135, 136, 137, 138, 139, 140, 141, 142, 143, 144, 145, 146, 147, 148, 149, 150.

Well, they were factory rejects that had no value - they were being thrown away, so getting people to take them off their hands for free was a bonus for everyone involved - the company didn’t have to pay to take them to dumps, and people got free fill.

The way I heard it, Jesus got the head of Holofernes as a barmitzvah gift from Judith, who was vaguely related to Joseph way, way back in the Old Testament begetting and spending. He carried it around in a bowling bag, keeping a sharp eye out for expectant mothers. Whenever he found one, he’d pin some colored streamers on the head, whip up a miraculous luau, and blast ol’ Holofernes into the sky while the crowd chanted “‘Lo, another child of God is born!”

As you can imagine, this took a toll on the head, and one night in Egypt it jammed in the cannon and caused an explosion that took out 7 of the original 19 apostles. Flaming bits of Holoferes rained down over the city and started a conflagration that raged for weeks. When it was over, the Great Library at Alexandria lay in ruins. The massed knowledge of the ancient world was irretrievably lost, and worst of all, no-one could remember if the baby was going to be a girl or a boy, or even what difference knowing might have made.

Jesus snuck out of town hidden in a manure cart and stuck to loaves and fishes from then on.
