Everybody Loves Ned Flanders

The Man Behind the New Religion

The son of Beatnick Parents who refused to discipline him, Nedward Flanders was a wild child, until his parents decided phsyciatric help was needed to calm the young ruffian, Dr Foster the phsyciatrist sent him to the University of Minnesota Spankalogical Protocol, which involved eight months of continuous spanking.

As a result of this treatment Ned became the man he is today, unable to express anger of any kind and babbling jibberish when he gets flustered.

He is a highly religious man who would do anything to help anyone who needs it.

Flanders is a widower, having been married to the equally religious Maude. They had two children together; the sheltered and naïve Rod and Todd

Ned is usually honest and sincere in carrying out the Christian doctrines of charity, kindness and compassion. He is frequently shown doing volunteer work, and is rigorously honest and upright, even going so far as to spend an entire day tracking down a Leftorium customer in order to give him the extra change that he had forgotten to hand over.

Praise Land

The Church of Flanders

Or the C.O.F as it is Better known is a church set up to celebrate Neds Religion, The man who is often seen talking to God on Television, and being answered by the Almighty.

He is a true desciple of God and he has many followers.

In 2001 and 2002, The Greenbelt Festival, a British Christian music and arts festival, held a special Ned Flanders Night.

The 2001 event featured a look-alike contest, as well as the tribute band "Ned Zeppelin". It was held in a 500 seat venue that was filled to capacity, and an extra 1500 people were turned away at the door.

Join the C.O.F Today and insure your afterlife now.

In Ned We Trust

      What is diddley is going on with this thread. Did I kill it with homoerotic innuendo?

      Now this is a great freakin HUB!

      Lighten Up! indeed. Getting angry at Ned Flanders lovers doesn't usually help you find enlightenment either.

      Ned's wife Maude's character was killed off after the actress playing her demanded a raise and then suddenly quit after a decade on the show.

      Ned operates The Leftorium which specializes in selling goods made specifically for Southpaws.

      His sons Rod and Todd are on the fast track to "Sweatin to the Oldies"

      Good humor Jimmy, I agree we all need to "lighten up". Some of us take ourselves WAY too seriously. Some days I'm guilty of that. Did they REALLY hold a Ned Flanders night or are you just messing with us gullable Americans? Either way it was funny.

      It's what comes of being brainwashed...of not thinking for your self. Of being a sheep....that follows ANY shepherd. We all have minds, we all are capable of finding the truth. Ned is one who gave up the search. Making fun of the search for truth....just makes the search that much harder for those who ARE seeking God.

      Hilarious!

      In northwest Ohio, there was a "Christian Amusement Park" in the 1990s, based on the Bible. I never went, but I think it's kaput. Too goofy for me.

      Funny Hub!
