The Good Lord was talking to Noah about something else the first time
He mentioned the coming Flood and the need to build a boat and went
off on an arctangent . . .
Some of the animals couldn't find the way to the ark so Noah put up
an arcsine to guide them . . .
Noah couldn't afford all the gopher wood and pitch required to build
the ark so one of his sons had to arccosine a loan for him . . .
One insect couldn't find the way even after Noah put up an
arcsine: he became known as an arcsecant. His mate was known as an
arccosecant. And when he finally found it he became an arcexsecant . . .
Since ships are usually considered female, after Noah put up the
arcsine would the archaversine?
To keep the rain from smearing the paint on the sign and making it
unreadable Noah put an awning over it that was known as an arccoversine . . .
Had Noah lived in England and launched the ark from the white cliffs,
to guide the animals he would have put up an arcdoversine . . .
