a good Jesus and Mo cartoon--that is a microphone between the two dudes, right, and not a dildo?

Just read through the whole series of jesus and mo stories and it's left me with a warm fuzzy feeling inside. Especially the amputee/miracle argument and good friday being renamed the 'cruciversary'. Mmm sacrilicious.

Thanks, Hip_Priest for that superb selection of JesusandMo. I think Mo should sue Jesus for having first billing at the site. Why not MoandJesus?

Yeah, looks like a dildo to me also. It sort of distracts from the overall effect of the rest of the cartoon. I must check this Jesus and Mo site!! I am familiar with the Celestial Teapot, but this one looks just as good, if not better.

Sorry folks, that looks like what it's meant to be, as NMcC said, a beer pump. Whoever saw a dildo with a large brand-name flange at it's base and what is clearly a little brass finial on the end? Additionally, the overall shape is not at all representative of any object I would wish to have as part of my anatomy!

Hey, you want cartoons? Go to the web site for the Jack Chick tracts - they are seriously deranged. Like his latest one:

Actually, the best, ever Jesus cartoon, most likely to upset the fundies HAS to be the Swearing Jesus:

(WARNING: turn the speakers down first)

Mind you, www dot jesuslovesporn dot net is kinda funny as well.... WARNING: Very, very broad minded adults only!!!!

You know what, that swearing jesus stuff reminds me of a Cuban religite I knew in South Florida. The one about not f*****g with jesus was exactly what he would say if tackled on religion. Classic!

Oh, "dummy" is "pacifier" in American-talk. I did not know that. I was thinking dummy was used in the sense of "ventriloquist's dummy," which confused me thoroughly.

Ok, that sure does make a great deal more sense. I thought that I knew most all of the differences between our two Englishes. Forgive me of my ignorance(:. Though the other kind of dummy analogy would not be far off the mark.

Wonderful word dummy. In Scotland at any rate it was an abbreviation of "dummy tit" Honest. I presume the correct usage was "dummy teat" but no one ever said that. Probably considered too posh or affected.

A popular playground rhyme of the time went "Tell tale tit, yer mammy cannae knit, yer daddy cannae go tae bed withoot a dummy tit"

(cannae: cant, withoot: without)

I am laughing at myself now. I thought the same thing, and found it to be quite disturbing.

For those unfortunates who are not educated in great cinema, one should point out that the "swearing Jesus" sound track is from the motion picture epic, The Big Lebowski.

Don't show this to any Jesus freaks or they'll probably "spit the dummy" as we say

I'd already explained the pacifier vs dummy thing on another thread but I used "dummy teat" even though as you say, in Scotland we use "dummy tit, as in: "Shove a dummy tit in the bairn's mooth!".

At teething time my grannie would advise "a drap 'o whisky an a tickie butter" be smeared on the tit. No wonder many Scots are piss artists, we start them young! :)

Great postings on this thread for a lzy Sunday. Very entertaining. Had never heard of Jesus and Mo. Wonderful.

Yorker, Logicel and everyone

This was sent to me yesterday. I don't know whether you have seen it. I can't get the two pictures to work but posted the link below the article.

There will be more of these wonderful bits, I hope.

Student punished for spaghetti beliefs
Thursday, March 29, 2007

The Flying Spaghetti Monster
A student has been suspended from school in America for coming to class dressed as a pirate.
But the disciplinary action has provoked controversy – because the student says that the ban violates his rights, as the pirate costume is part of his religion.
Bryan Killian says that he follows the Pastafarian religion, and that as a crucial part of his faith, he must wear 'full pirate regalia' as prescribed in the holy texts of Pastafarianism.
The school, however, say that his pirate garb was disruptive.

Pastafarians follow the Flying Spaghetti Monster (pictured), and believe that the world was created by the touch of his noodly appendage. Furthermore, they acknowledge pirates as being 'absolute divine beings', and stress that the worldwide decline in the number of pirates has directly led to global warming.

A man in full pirate regalia
Pastafarianism gained wide attention when its key prophet, Bobby Henderson, wrote to the Kansas School Board during the height of the controversy over 'Intelligent Design' being taught in science classes. His letter, also published on his website, demanded equal time be given to the teachings of the Flying Spaghetti Monster as was given to ID and evolutionary theory.
Since then, the Flying Spaghetti Monster has gained countless followers worldwide, although there are those who remain spagnostic.
The school, in North Buncombe, North Carolina, remains adamant that their decision to suspend Killian for a day has nothing to do with his religion, and quite a lot to do with his repeated refusal to heed warnings against wearing pirate outfits.

I wonder if that school would consider Muslim girls garb to be "disruptive", you know, bag-over-the-head etc. I suspect the hypocritical bastards would take a different approach to that problem. What we need is hordes of kids claiming belief in many outlandish religions each with special garb and daily prayer rules that schools must accomodate. It would be wonderful! Kids are the key, if entire nations of kids unite in highlighting the stupidity of religion they would become a powerful force!

It's something I'd love to see in the UK also, give Blair a final multi-cultural problem to deal with!

I hope this story went everywhere. It was only reported on 29th March. I reckon it could catalyse a whole lot of copy cat type acts. Did you check this site out:

Read the hate mail Henderson list as a tab.

You're right, the answer is in the kids. Doesn't it help to give you hope? Though, I suspect they would less worried if an organisatiom where behind them.

It's a matter of getting things like this out into the public. Kids love imitating and they would see it as terrific and rebellious fun. They are much freer than you and I were in the 1950s. And there are more of them. We need someone to start the Celestial Teapot sect. Anything fertile imaginations can come up with!

Hope rises eternal...

Yes, that's what I had in mind, an appeal to their rebelliousness! We should support them, and of course we'd get blamed and accused of manipulation etc. Fine!
