Moroni kicked the can down the hill. There were no golden plates. All that was hidden under the rocks on the Hill Cumorah were bugs, spiders, and creepy crawly things.

Joseph got married to Fanny Alger. Emma married a local pastor following her parents advice; she and Joseph went their separate ways.

There were no Lamanites, no Nephites. Instead, Joseph decided to go opossum hunting rather than treasure hunting, plagiarizing others stories, and living a lie. Although he had some ambition, he decided to live honorably and be respectable rather than living a life of pretense.

There would be no COJCOLDS. No Mormons, no Brigham Young, or Eliza Snow to take up the cause, because Joe chose a different path. How different would the landscape and history have been if Joe had gone into another vocation besides chicanery and pious fraud?


w/permission to RfM for whatever.

I really like this one. Much easier on the brain than the original. Have you considered sending it to the boys in SLC???

Hmm, just a hunch it wouldn't make it past the front reception desk.

Think of all the years it has taken us to undo our cognitive dissonance from Mormon teachings.

For those codgers sitting in their ivory tower, it has taken them a lifetime to perfect theirs (cog diss.)

Amyjo-

Will U write the screenplay?

I'll serve as producer-director,

Joe Pesci for Joseph Smith.

Maybe Marisa Tomei for Fanny. They had good screen chemistry.

Emma? Valerie Harper would be good. They all have a well developed sense of humor, which would be prerequisite to playing any of the cast characters.

Mel Brooks was a shoe-in, but I need a Real challenge AND a signed contract to be in on this...

A signed contract for this would be as real as a Monopoly board game.

Are you still in?
