We actually had this discussion in our Bible Study. I happen to do a mean Elmo impersonation and I asked the group if they would be shocked when they got to heaven and God said "Jehovah loves you!!heehee" in my Elmo voice.
Of course we also talk about ninja Jesus and great many questionable theologies.
Speaking of Elmo..been thinking of trying to apply for the opening. Working on my tape. Should I include the fact that I have never schtooped under-aged boys. That's got to be an upgrade in the position.

I wouldn't bring attention to it lol
The one thing I remember most from my youth church stuff was when our group leader was trying to teach us something by getting each of us to imagine we were talking to an alien and we were explaining to them how a Baseball game is played, but we couldn't use any baseball terms, like first base or innings. Everyone screwed up at some point and I can't remember what the point was haha.
Probably an exercise in seeing things from a different point of view. I suppose one lesson to be learned is that it can often be very difficult. On the other hand, you can make anything seem very difficult by insisting you do it in the stupidest possible way, and when it's OBVIOUSLY the stupidest possible way, your students aren't likely to take the lesson well.
