That would be a blast, how would I go about it?

So even though God's address may be unlisted (actually it's not unlisted, there's just these big pearly gates with a divine security guard so an argument can be made that God is evading service) couldn't you serve his agent? eg God c/o Pope Benedict, Apostolic Palace, Holy See, Vatican City?

I'm not sure the American legal system recognises the claims of the Catholic Church. :-b

Didn't they make a film with Billy Connolly with this exact premise? Ed: See it's referenced above.

This reminds me of an old Keith Richards anecdote. (To get it, you have to know that prisoners in the UK are known as 'guests of Her Majesty.')

Keith: I want to sue the Queen.
Lawyer: Not sure that's a great idea. Why?
Keith: Well, you know that new law making titleholders culpable if their property is used for the supply of illegal substances?
Lawyer: Yes, why?
Keith: I was just offered drugs in prison.
