Because it is difficult to hear anyone over the sound of a hairdryer.

He speaks to his father every day. Being of somewhat limited IQ, he confuses it with speaking to the Father every day.

Well, of course not. That would be absurd. We all know only space monkeys communicate through hair dryers.

I saw one of those space monkeys at the Smithsonian in D.C. back in my youth.
It was a tiny monkey that had been freeze dried and placed in it's capsule for display.
It was wired up and had some sort of cap on. Didn't look happy from what I remember. A bit sad.

I spent many a hour looking through the museums of D.C. when a much younger man.

I could tell you things about D.C. that would give you nightmares....

hair dryers are optional
Life is what YOU make it,
Most just try and fake it...

God doesn't need a hairdryer to communicate with someone. But the race of reptilian aliens from another dimension they do. So listening to them is just forwarding the new world order agenda.

It makes no difference since only hot air come out of it anyway.

He might have been pretending it was a loudspeaker ?

Mother Nature communicates through Nature with natural hot air. She doesn't need artificial hair dryers to dry and style peoples artificial hair.

As there has NEVER been even a single confirmed communication from God, all claims and statements as to what is, or isn't required, are specious at best, and idiotic at worst. Such claims are no different in credibility than proclamations about what foods are favored by gremlins.

One could say the very same thing about the hair dryer. ;-)

Beating someone up with a hammer is terrible.... beating someone up with a hammer while wearing a chicken suit is funny.

Assuming that you are talking about the Christian God, the addition of a hair dryer does make it absurd: Christianity does not accept that anything other than, well, prayer to be prayer. Claiming that one follows the rules of a religion--but comically demonstrating otherwise--is absurd.

No, it's satirical. :-)

I believe you've missed the point. With, or without, the hair dryer, it's still completely absurd.
