“Prophets are going through the roof” (joke)

"Profits are going through the roof” is an expression meaning that a business is generating a lot of money. A joke has been printed on several images:

“I opened a company selling land mines that look like prayer mats. Prophets are going through the roof.”

“The prophets are going through the roof” pun was made on Twitter on July 13, 2010.

Another “through the roof” joke is: “I build yachts in my attic. Sails are going through the roof.”
