Another grave error

The funnies page in New Scientist magazine has recently been recounting stories of readers' childhood religious misunderstandings. Plenty of people have sent in the hoary old chesnut, Gladly the Cross-Eyed Bear. Me? I could never understand why Jesus died to save arse-holes. But, the other week, one reader's recollection made stuff come out of my nose:

Luela Palmer thought the words she heard as a coffin was lowered into the ground were: 'Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, into the hole he goes'.
