been wanting to do this joke visually since 1995 when I wrote it as
a post to alt.stupidity. My first few attempts never lived long enough
to do any good (one died in a hard drive meltdown and the second was
on a server run by a "friend" who one night just up and
absconded with all the data. Moral: Back up your stuff locally.)
think though that this is the best incarnation of it yet. It's certainly
one of my real favowites. The Jesus pictures are, amazingly enough,
from some motion picture called "Jesus."
friend once worried if I'd get religious flack from fundies over this
strip because I put Our Lord Jesus Christ in a humorous light, and
we can't have that because it means laughing and having fun or whatever
it is that fundies hate about having fun. But really, the man preached
non-violence and advocated non-violent solutions whenever possible.
I am 100% certain that if he had thought of using snack cakes to foil
the Romans' plans, he would have gladly done so.
