''Maybe they're on the same team'' said my friend, which seemed controversial.

Who did he think may be 'on the same team' and why?



There's a chance this one could be quick

Anthropomorphism relevent? I actually had to look that up and Yes it seems to fit the bill

Both are same form of life? it depends what you believe
If no please answer the next questions for each.
amphibians? birds? fish? insects? mammals? reptiles? aliens? other? 'other' is the closest

Which of the following 'fourteen kinds of animal' do they belong to:

suckling pigs?
mermaids?
fabulous ones?
stray dogs?
those included in the present classification?
those that tremble as if they were mad?
innumerable ones?
those drawn with a very fine camelhair brush?
others?
those that have just broken a flower vase?

Are they real animals? I wouldn't use the word 'animals' and a lot of people don't believe they're 'real' either

Are they working together? My friend argued this, but the majority would say that they are not working together
Appear to be working together? please see previous answer

HINT: What my friend said was made more controversial by where we were at the time.

Is religion relevant? My thought is that "they" were God and Satan and that you were in a church...

Anything to do with Lucifer's originally being an angel? Is any world event relevant?

I think we're close enough for one of these though:

********SPOILER********

My friend joined myself and my family at our village well dressing event. On the way round we stopped off in the local church for tea and cake. My friend thought that the church was an appropriate location to state (not quietly I might add):

"I don't really see what's wrong with Devil Worship, they're not so different: God and the Devil, in fact maybe they're on the same team, with one rewarding good people, the other punishing sinners. Maybe it's a 'good cop, bad cop' kind of set-up"

People were staring. It was terrible.


Thanks for playing

Oh, by the way 'You Have To Be Joking' is the title of a song by The Flaming Lips which includes the lyric: 'Seems to me that God and the Devil are both the same'
