It is a matter of some pride to me that, at the time of writing, the original version of this comic is the top result in a Google search for “Jesus horse porn”.
I won’t ask what came second in the search results.
IIRC, Jesus did say that it is easier for a rich man to enter a camel, than it is for a poor man to
I’ll have to keep my horse away from my computer. i never thought……………
Does that mean my horse sex super PAC will be looked down upon?
Wicked – me like!
Horse porn? I’d have to say, “neigh!”
When religion is formed by an eccentric
It becomes significantly less eclectic
The maid slinging beer
Would like all to be near
Like ripples in the glass, concentric.
Religion is like a penis: it’s fine to have one, it’s fine to be proud of it, but don’t wave it around in public or try to shove it down my throat.
It’s 7:42 AM local time as I type this here… If my neighbors weren’t already awake I just woke them up with my laughter. This strip never disappoints, but today’s strip is absolutely priceless.
@author, great punchline. Got a real actual laugh out of me.
@ DH – Me too, and I love Runar’s definition!
Religion is like a penis. It’s fine to have one, it’s fine to be proud of it, just don’t get it out and start waving it around in public, and don’t shove it down our childrens’ throats.
i think its best to keep the horse away from Jesus and mo
heehe this was in a norwegian newspaper today. A norwegian man called MortenM, his job is to draw cartoons in this news paper. And today i like it wery much what he had drawn.
on English the cartoon said: Wait until i have drawn Mohammed.
Muslims in elk hunting.
here is the norwegian news paper link to the cartoon.
I don’t get it.
The old art seems really crude now.
Hey, not fair! Some of us like a nice dick waved around in front of us or even shoved down our throats. And what’s wrong with horse porn? (As long as its consenting mamals, of age, and noone is hurt in the process of creation, of course.)
Does anyone else believe that their response was very, eh, stable?
The religion/penis analogy goes something like this:
It’s ok to have one, and it’s even ok to be proud of it. But don’t wave it around in public, don’t expose children to it, and if people aren’t interested in it, leave them alone. It probably shouldn’t be the only thing you think about, it definitely shouldn’t be the only thing you base decisions on, and if it’s the most important part of your life, it’s time to reconsider your priorities.
And @FreeFox – I’m with you. Given the either/or choice of what gets waved in my face, I’m opting against religion.
The author just can’t stop attacking GLBT people, can he?
That’s yet another lame attempt to present that typical homophobic argument (“keep your perversion to yourself and don’t agitate the minors”) in a politically correct form.
Shame on you, author.
John, you must be a troll, or suffering from drug-induced paranoid delusion.
Thou shalt not deny the existence of your loving, omniscient, omnipotent, ah well; or else…
Ah, the link’s not displayed, just under the username, so let’s try again:
The 1913 Webster’s English dictionary, under the entry “hobby”, gives this as the first meaning:
1. A strong, active horse, of a middle size, said to have been originally from Ireland; an ambling nag.
@John Ignoring the possibility that you are a troll, I see your point but I’m also gob smacked by your over reaction. Author made a great joke. Barmaid listed three restrictions she would place on “eccentric hobbies” such as horse porn or religion. I think the restrictions are very reasonable, and do not amount to telling GLBT folk, a group in which I count myself, to “keep your perversion to yourself and don’t agitate the minors”. Barmaid’s attitude is pure tolerance. As is Author’s. What have you been smoking? Whatever it is, I suggest you stop.
Sorry, John, but like others here, I don’t get where you are coming from. I’ve been visiting this site for a long time, and I’ve not seen a single anti-GLBT cartoon from the author, and certainly not in this one.
How about explaining your point of view – I’m sure everyone would be interested, and that Author would be ready to explain and apologise if there is a slight that was not intended.
Well, some of the humour gets an extra charge from the frisson that Jesus and Mo’s relationship has quite some queer overtones, right down to tinkerbell, and there is of course a lot of laughs about conservative religious folks being caught stepping out with luggage carriers or so. You can say the fun is exposing the hypocrisy of bigots, but if you are honest, part of the laugh does come from the fact that “you’re gay” still is funny in an offensive, humiliating way. I can live with that. If you can be open and feel good about being queer, it doesn’t hurt. But… I think if you still got self-loathing issues (and we all have to work thorugh those, still, I’m afraid), I can imagine it still stings.
Hey, collected fine minds here, thinking of the children, can you tell me who is waving whose dick in whose face here?
@FreeFox “if you are honest, part of the laugh does come from the fact that “you’re gay” still is funny” Good point, and it reminds me of the way blacks were always the comic relief in movies back in those Jim Crow days. But I think enough of us self-identify as slightly kinky, or at least take pride in our tolerance, that this is not the case here. If the frisson around Jesus and Mo comes from the gay overtones, it’s only because that’s so obvious and at the same time so unexpected, even though it’s an accepted part of the religion. I mean, a Christian male can say “I love Jesus with all my heart.” That’s a pretty gay thing to say. How they can say it and not feel gay about it is beyond me.
Of course they say it in a “I love my brother.” or “I love my best friend” sort of way. As if their mind and body really are two separate things. Hey buddy, if you love me that much, do me the courtesy of a reach around wouldya. Also reminds me of the opening of “True Romance” where he’s talking to the woman in the bar and says “I’m not gay or nothing, but if I had to fuck a guy, I mean really had to, I’d fuck Elvis.” So would those Christians fuck Jesus? I’ve always wondered.
Babbling at you now. Sorry. It’s late and I’ve still got work to do. Still trying to get your link to open. Desperately curious.
@FreeFox thanks for the heads up on that ad. Should be good material for a parody there. I may take a run at one.
@DH: But I think enough of us self-identify as slightly kinky, or at least take pride in our tolerance, that this is not the case here. Do you know that D.W. Griffith, director of “The Birth of a Nation” didn’t think of himself as racist? He saw the Negroes working for him like his children that he had to care for – and it never occurred to him that this itself was a problem. And of course Harriet Beecher Stowe was actively anti-slavery. I am not certain it suffices “to take pride in your tolerance”. It’s always hard to decide who has the right to define acceptable offensiveness. I mean, personally I am in favour of complete freedom of opinion. I can find an opinion despicable, but I want even the caziest Nazi, Muslim, or Vegan fanatic to be allowed to speak his mind. But… it doesn’t make them less crazy or unpleasant.
So, I fully support Author’s right to riff on the queer themed humour as much as he likes. And personally, I find it pretty funny. But as long as you haven’t had other schoolkids write “I take it up the rear” on the back of your hoody or piss on your clothes during gym class or ask you for a tampon or make-up tips in the school halls… I don’t think you are quite in the position to call an intejection like that from John “delusional” or tell him to stop whatever he’s been smoking.
*Have to agree with Peakcrew though, that this one is actually particular low on the subconscious homophobia scale… :p
well, at least barmaid doesn’t know about the goat porn!
happy blasphemy day everyone
@FreeFox “But as long as you haven’t had… I don’t think you are quite in the position to call an intejection like that from John “delusional” or tell him to stop whatever he’s been smoking.” I see. Interesting how you life members in the Damaged and Persecuted club presume to know what kind of experiences I have had, and give license to have an opinion based on those presumed experiences or lack thereof. Guess I should just shut my mouth now. Sorry. Who am I to judge? Or can I trot out MY damaged and persecuted credentials and tell you what I think?
@FreeFox Not that I don’t give full sympathy to anybody who has been brutalized in the ways you listed. Far more of an abomination than any sexual practice between consenting adults. Disgusting.
That big brown eyed girl sure has a great vocabulary. Cute too! LOL! When will folk learn that sexuality is not based what you see. It’s what you are. I have sexual memories from 2 years old. I invented the full zip through rubber suit when I was in the 3rd grade. Nice dicks are ok but that’s often not the case. Who’s delusional from smoking? The barmaid likes goat porn? I like the great ape porn. It’s somehow fimiliar. Blasphemy day? Need I miss it? I’m a great ape! Don’t teach to question it.
If you search through the archives to Oct 25 2006, you’ll see that J and M are not gay and are shocked that Moses thinks so. BTW one of the funniest strips.
October 2006 was one funny month on planet J&M. Had me stuck back in the archives again for some time.
Blasphemy day? Every day is Blasphemy day for me. My favorite for getting a reaction from the Christers is “I got your Jesus hanging right here”, so celebrate early, celebrate often!
well, not the gay kind of gay, anyway
@DH: can I trot out MY damaged and persecuted credentials and tell you what I think?
Any time, mate. Love to hear them. (Only know a bit about the non-consensual penis mutilation.) ^_^
3-odd (sometimes *very* odd) years later and I notice the comment about topping the Google results for “Jesus horse porn.”
It’s still true.
We protest likening religion to horse porn as an insult to the dignity of horses, and shall notify animal rights associations accordingly.
How do we know the barkeep is not into horse p0rn? Remember Sappho the Lesbian Greek poet kept male goats for sexual purposes.
