now THAT’s divine intervention! I love how people pray when things don’t happen their way.
Years and years ago I promised never to ask God for anything like money, cars, success, love, and all the usual crap people pray for. I pray for God now. I pray that people will leave him alone, give him a break, stop blaming him for everything… They say God is dead, so I pray that he get well soon. I pray FOR God, not at him. I figure I can take care of all the other stuff on my own. Miracles really aren’t called for, for much of what I do.
I worship this comic. It may be my favorite ever.
carolita: people blame god for everything? from where i stand, he gets credit for the good and excused for the bad b/c of his mysterious ways.
its all a trick we play on ourselves.
Don’t you get it? Allah makes the miracle by giving the barmaid extra tickets. People nowadays expect miracles to happen, and 2 tickets to come from the sky together with divine light or something, so that’s why there are so many atheists…
A hilariously, knee-slappingly true comic.
“Years ago we answered them all, but years ago there was less people. And people prayed for something simple then: to light a fire, to catch a yak. Nowadays we get people praying for hockey teams, people praying for longer fingernails — we just can’t keep up with it.”
George Carlin: Interview with Jesus
Beautiful comic – a great re-telling of the old joke:
“A priest is hanging off a cliff by his fingertips, and a walker approaches and says ‘let me help’ and the priest says ‘No God will save me!’…
(repeat for a boat and helicopter)
…”the priest falls to his death and says to god ‘why didn’t you save me?’ and god says ‘you ungrateful bastard! I sent a walker, a boat and a helicopter…’ “
Thanks, I just sprayed beer out my nose..
This is great, I’ve been going through your archives for a couple of days now, it’s all good.
One of the best strips ever!
@Carolita: so you’re saying that even an omnipotent deity needs a little help now and then?
Old comic, but I must add it made me laugh out loud.
