Erm… just noticed… do I see THE muslim drinking alcohol or is it root beer?
Poor Richard says, sacrifice a calf while you’re at it.
Barmaid knows that lemon, honey, and bourbon stirred together
works best. No cure, but she won’t care.
Kiki: watch for the little bubbles. The guys are just getting started here.
By the way, great timing on that punch line! (oh, you didn’t know
cartoons have “timing”? Well, now you do)
At first, I thought this strip was going to be a reference to “I had a headache, so I took an aspirin and prayed. My headache went away, so prayer works!”
Heh. Kind of reminded me of this Jon Stewart clip on prayer: http://yoism.reality-movement.org/media/JS-PrayerStudy.wmv
Great clip, raoul.
Another Great strip keep it up!
by the way, wow, that Jon Stewart clip is awesome, specially the ending with the megachurch nutter slapping the sheep down with his jacket, LOL
Nothing works like prayer indeed
That was funny!!! Good one..
Bourbon? BOURBON!?! I think you’ll find a quality single-malt (they’re ALL quality compared to blends) or brandy works best.
Care to prove me wrong? Name your bar and we’ll get this experiment started.
You’re on. I’ll buy the bourbon (cheap);
you can get the Scotch (oooof).
“There ain’t no bad whiskey, sisters and brothers;
it’s just that some is better than others,” as Poor
Must be nice having 1/3 of a God for your straight man. He sure sets her up for a wicked retort in that last panel.
I’ve had to go back and read it several times, just to savour it again.
Gosh, rOOdy, I forgot: even the Canadians don’t know what bourbon is.
(I still don’t know what it was I drank in Toronto.) At least I didn’t offend the Brits by suggesting ice, which is, I agree, a barbarian insult to any decent whiskey. I’m sure barmaid has been around, but she wouldn’t pick Jim Beam–
so you’ve cleared my head–thanks. When I was in graduate school, I could
afford Scotch, but I’ve been poor since then. Feel free to send money.
How do I get my fundamentalist neighbors to read Jesus and Mo?
Ply them with Scotch, maybe?
It is true that given enough time, all prayers are answered.
However, as it often turns out, sometimes the answer is no.
Prayer is not a magic lamp to be rubbed so a jinni might fulfill wishes. Prayer is the acknowledging God’s sovereignty and conforming thoughts to His. Prayer is not about changing your situation; it’s about changing your attitude to live better in your situation.
@Kristian. Yeah, she believes that NOTHING works LIKE PRAYER.
(Even though the empirical study cited in the above mentioned video indicates that “nothing” actually works somewhat better…)
@ ToddAwful: Amen to that, lol. But seriously, I always wondered how peeps came up with that idea of prayer FOR something. What, you think that an omniscient God needs to be TOLD? Or at least reminded from time to time cuz he’s got too much on his mind? Or that an benevolent God knows… but wants to hear your say “pretty pleaze” before granting your wishes, like a pedantic grandma? And there you have PROVIDENCE… God’s cosmic plan for all creation, set in motion eons ago… but he will change it, because some person (that… he could not… anticipate… or somehow ignored before because he… knows everything… huh?) asks him for it? It just DOES NOT MAKE SENSE! Either the dud knows everything and likes to please, then you wouldn’t NEED to pray… or he doesn’t give a shit, then there is no point in praying. (Except in ToddAwful’s meditative, self-subjugating, Inshallah-like que-sera-sera way…)
@ToddAwful: Your take sounds like religious doublespeak, or perhaps you’re only talking about how you personally see prayer.
When my 50 year old aunt prays to Jesus that she might become pregnant, you are saying that she is not asking to change her childless situation???
If so, God must be better at translating doublespeak than you godbotherers are at spewing it.
