J&M’s entry for the Templeton Prize.
I can haz millian pounz now?
(Did I do that right?)
Quite. Author, you just made Newton’s ghost very angry.
Nice one, author! If you recite that in a drawn out old man’s Shakespearian voice, it works even better.
How fitting for the quote from Karl Giberson (above right) which links to this shite; sorry, site:
Well, it made me laugh.
Made me laugh out loud. Thanks author
Having listened to a program about George Formby last night, I’ve now got J & M singing a duet in broad Lancastrian whilst getting a banjo-uke sound out of the acoustic guitar.
I think it adds, rather than takes away
How long have J&M been blinking? I thought I was going mad at first.
Now you’ve got me trying to work out the melody. I think we need a few more verses.
@ Tim – Author has done this a few times and like you the first time I saw it I began questioning my sanity. Not that this proves me sane, mind you…..
Haha! You deserve a million Author!
You should see what Paula Kirby said about this one on Facebook.
Ok I’ll tell you. She said “I do not have the words to describe how brilliant this is!”
Tim, perhaps if one stares long enough and hard enough J&M might shed tears – anyone got the pope’s number?
“Rectal provenance” = best lyric EVAH.
I am so going to steal ‘rectal provenance’
This is wonderful; succinct and brutally honest. The “hypotheses of rectal providence” line had me laughing out loud!
Hahaha. For some reason I have the feeling this isn’t going to win.
With some more verses, maybe J&M could make it big in the Hit Parade.
Magnificent. Eurovision anyone?
It scanned very well with the tune I just composed in my head. A truly scatalogical ditty.
i like the song and the blinking eyes.
hehe maybe this is a new song to the Eurovisjon
@Yasha: sad but true; Newton expended most of his unequalled intellect on theology.
Making noise akin to a goat
Or a frog exhaling a bloat
The proselytizing atheist
Or inflated physical scientist
Sound like a “Johnny one note”.
I know asking this is totally uncool, but where does “rectal provenance” come from? Has it something to do with prostate cancer check?
@ Mansur al-Japan: I think ‘rectal provenance’ is just a proof of J&M’s poetic talent, so that the word ‘common sense’ can rhyme with ‘utter bullshit’.
Works well to a slightly adapted “My old man’s a dustman” with an extra final couplet, sung slowly to emphasize the true beauty of the words.
@Mansur “Hypotheses of rectal provenance” could be translated to “Theories I pulled out of my ass”.
In panel 3, did Mo intend to say “And still believe in -all of this- Shite”?
Spot on, and very funny. Well done, Author.
If you repeat the last line of each panel, it fits nicely to the tune of the Gilligans Island theme song. I particularly like the repetition of the “rectal provenance” line this requires.
There must be enough material for an album now.
The blinking is freaking me out.
Sadly, I doubt the boys are ever likely to win a Templeton.
Now, if the Barmaid can bring herself to declare that their arguments are really quite reasonable and interesting (and maybe calls Richard Dawkins a poopie-head for good measure) then she’ll be a shoe-in.
