As far as insult humor is concerned, the Book of Job has a speech that goes something like this: "Don't be so proud. Someday you will be decomposing in a field the same way manure decomposes."

Roughly "Thou art Peter, and on this rock I will build my church". That's supposed to be the only pun in the whole book, and it isn't so much.

@roger,
Peter is a Greek name and it wasn't that apostle's original name anyway - he had a Hebrew name to begin with and until the scene you describe. However in answer to Francis's original question, presumably this passage could be interpreted as including a sense of humor:
Quote:
Matthew 19:26 (King James Version)

26But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

@High Seas,
That is the first recorded phrase which had later become paraphrased to be
"For you deefeeculd, for me eeassy"

@High Seas,
Peter was Petros or something like that. Meant rock in Greek.

@roger,
No, that's not correct - his name was Simon, a Hebrew name. Petra is the Greek word for stone, btw, but when used as a name it's adapted for M/F.

I don't want to spread any blasphemous rumours
But I think that God's got a sick sense of humour
And when I die
I expect to find
Him laughing...

(the source is beyond reproach)

@Francis,
There is a yiddish saying that says "Man makes his plans and God laughs." So yes, I think he has a sense of humor. He made me Confused
