(excerpted from Bible Tales for Ages 18 and Up, by G. Richard Bozarth)
Noah pulled Shem away when the youth’s face went purple, saying, “Come on home. We have to have a family meeting now that Japheth’s back. I’ve been talking with the Lord again.”
“Oh, great!” Shem groaned. “What now?”
“I’ll tell everybody at once,” Noah replied nervously.
Noah’s son Ham greeted them at the door with a cocky, “Hi, Pops, how’s it hangin’?”
Noah glared. “Your disrespect for your father will be your undoing, young man!” he cautioned the 82-year-old boy.
Ham grinned, feigning innocence. “Disrespect? Forget about it! Any guy that can still get it up at your age has all my respect.”
Noah considered spanking the youth, but a look at the boy’s muscular body put an end to that thought. Instead, he said gravely, “We must have a family meeting. I’ve been talking with the Lord.”
“Yikes!” Ham groaned. “Break out the lube!”
