God The Foolish And God The Weak

"Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men."

1 Corinthians 1:25

I realise that these words are chosen for poetic reasons, not designed to be taken literally and are mere wordplay to illustrate just what a great guy the writer thinks god is, which in itself makes them truly pointless words because the writer's self-inspired level of awe at god is irrelevant to how great (or not) god actually is (or isn't) but let's take the phrase 'as stated'. I know, not very likely but, hey, it's Sunday afternoon, for a lark let's just say a passage from a monotheistic 'holy' book means exactly what it says...
"When God is in a condition which he himself would describe as foolish or weak, 'he' is still wiser and stronger than men."
If that's not fair, let me know below.

The subtext of the quote is that god has the ability to be weak and foolish; if he could not be, firstly, the comparison would be even more pointless, I mean, if 'he' could not be those things, what value would there be in making the comparison? Would it not be like saying "Humans walk better than Octopuses"? Secondly, they claim omnipotence for their idol, so of course he's capable of being either weak or foolish, or both.
So, if god can be, or has been, weak or foolish, or both, even if only on occasion, does that not suggest that he could have been in weak or foolish 'mode' for some of creation or in some of his decisions thereafter?
If so, which biblical events/verses do you think are most likely to have occurred when their idol was just being foolish? or weak? or both?
I'm sure there's some obvious ones but I can't think of any at the moment Sunday afternoon, full, sun streaming thought the window, bit snoozy - it's understandable and excusable I think. oh wait, I've thought of one...
I think Robin Williams first suggested it though (kind of)...
The Duck-billed Platypus probably makes a Grade 1 example of a god in foolish mode.

Anyway leave any more you can think of in the comments, I feel a nap coming on :)
