In the year 2011, the Lord came unto Noah,
who was now living in Australia and said:
“Once again, the earth has become wicked and over-populated, and I see the end 

of all flesh before me.”
“Build another
  Ark and save
2 of every living thing
along with a few good humans.”
He gave Noah the blueprints, saying:
“You have 6 months to build the
  Ark before I will
start the unending rain for
40 days and 40 nights.”

Six months later, the Lord looked down and saw Noah
weeping in his yard – but no
  Ark.“Noah!”, He roared,
“I’m about to start the rain!
Where is the
  Ark?”
“Forgive me, Lord”, begged Noah, “but things have changed.”
