Finally a religion we can follow:

Dear Friendly Friend:
How many times have you wanted to fill that yawning spiritual void in your
life but just weren't able to find the time or the energy? How often have
you wanted to form a more personal relationship with a Higher Authority but
just couldn't find a religion out there that understood you, Friendly Friend,
that indulged you, one that fit in with your creative, dynamic lifestyle?
Well, at last,thanks to the Creators of Wauism, there is. Finally, there's a
faith that works for you, Friendly Friend, instead of the other way around.
After all these years, and following an in-depth market research study,
Wauists Worldwide (A full-service non-profit agency not affiliated with CBS
International) has come up with a religion that draws upon the best features
of some of the world's most popular denominations, but does them all far
Yes, Friend, that's right! Wauism is everything some religions are and much,
much more. It's not just a job, it's an adventure; it's a breath mint, and a
candy mint; it's everything you always wanted in a God and less. Designed
using the latest in CAT (Computer Aided Religion) technology, here's just a
few of the features Wauism offers:
1. Guaranteed Salvation. Guaranteed. Other religions require you
to behave a certain way in the here-and-now in order to make out in the
hereafter; with Wauism, you can do whatever you want, because your salvation
is guaranteed! Wauism realizes you've got enough to worry about in life
without having to be nervous about where you're headed after you die, so
relax! As a Wauist, death means never having to have said you're sorry.
Whatever Heaven you want is yours; or if you'd rather just be dead, that's
2. Your Choice of Supreme Being. No more arguing about who's more
all-powerful, Jesus or Mohammed, Buddha or Joseph Smith. Stop fighting about
whether Allah could take The Holy Ghost in a wrestling match. End the
endless bickering over whether the Supreme Diety is a He or a She. With
Wauism, you can choose. Using the patented Godolyzer, you make God in your
image. Combine Jesus' hairdo with Mother Nature's eyes. Add the musical
flair of Krishna to the sexual swagger of Zoroaster. You want a Lord who
vengeful but also knows how to rock? No problem. Using the Godolyzer, with
or without the templates provided, you make the call.
3. Eat Whatever You Want. Remember fishsticks on Friday? Or how
about unleavened bread? And who - try as they might - can forget "bitter
herbs?" Well, now, thanks to Wauism, you can. As a Wauist, you'll never
have to tongue another eucharist wafer off of your palate or nurse another
hangover brought on from sacramental wine again. Glut your maw however you'd
like, whenever you'd like. Eat all you want, just want all you take.
4. More Efficient Commandments. Some religions take as many as Ten
Commandments to lay down their laws. Wauism, using the latest in data-
compression techniques, has significantly reduced the number of Commandments
and has also managed to dramatically decrease their stringency. Think of
them simply as a Couple of Suggestions, and if you'd rather not, hey, Friend,
that's quite all right, too.
5. No Sexual Taboos. Has anything turned more people away from the
power above the heavens than the power below their waists? Wauism doesn't
have the problem, because as a Wauist, you Friendly Friend, can stick or get
stuck however you want with whom or whatever you want whenever or wherever
you want. As long as no one gets hurt - or just if they want to - Wauism
says have fun. And be safe.
6. More and Better Holidays. Even the most fun-loving religions
usually have only half a dozen or so major holidays a year. And often
several of these are days of atonment or fasting. Wausism, on the other
hand, features a full complement of 365 full-scale religious holidays a year!
366 for leap year. And all include presents and feasting.
7. No Hazing Rituals. No hitting with sticks. No drenchings in
water. No knives aimed at your privates. Need we say more?
8. No Annual Fee. Because of low overhead (no Gothic cathedrals to
keep up, no sacred texts to maintain, no Crusades to mount) Wauism is offered
to you entirely free! A letter now and again would be nice, but hey, don't
9. 100% Compatibilty. Wauism does not require you to change or
upgrade any of your existing religious or sectarian beliefs. It is in no way
mutually exclusive. You can be a Wauist and anything else you want, too -
10. Quit at Any Time. No forms to fill out, no messy dyes to spill,
no one will call you. You can be a Wauist one day and something else the
next. Change hourly if you'd like. By the second if you'd prefer. Or, be a
Wauist forever. It's entirely up to you. So, there you have it, Friend, in
a nutshell - a pistachio to be exact. With Wauism, you get all the plusses
other religions with none of the minusses. It's like having your cake and
eating it, too. Heck, it's like owning the whole bakery! And because you,
Friendly Friend, are who you are, and only sometimes somebody else, you have
been selected to participate in this charter membership offer. As a Wauist,
you'll enjoy the benefits of the world's only computer-designed faith as well
as the peace of mind of knowing if the Armageddon does come, it's not your
So, join today and start receiving the benefits immediately. All you have to
do is whatever you want. Make no phone calls unless you feel so inclined.
Write no letters unless it strikes your fancy. Send no money, unless you
Be a Wauist or don't be. You are still surrounded in a cone of love.

P.S. This offer never expires, relax and breath deep.
