Simply too funny

Over at the Shrine I saw this.  It is too funny.

    Windows users can make these messageboxes for themselves really easily! Just paste the following into notepad and save is as “Sola Scriptura.vbs”:

    strMbox = MsgBox(“An error has occured in your private interpretation!” _
    &vbCR & vbCr & “Click OK to join the Catholic Church.”, _
    vbCritical, “Sola Scriptura Problem”)

    Set Sh = WScript.CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)
    Sh.Run “”, 3

    – and then double click on the file you’ve just made. Voila!

  2. Interesting! Of course, a truly Catholic error message would have shown up on a Macintosh. At least that’s what Umberto Eco says. He thinks Windows is for Anglicans!

  3. Al, many thanks for the code. (I’ll probably waste some valuable time making some up!) I’m not a programmer but worked out that you those who cut ‘n paste it will have to change the smart quotes to inch quotes to get it to work.

    Oops! Quite correct, Father. Looks like the wdtprs server software converted the quotation marks somehow.
