    Boom boom

  2. Tim says:

    very good! It did take me a moment or two I must admit.
    Just read it again and only just got the ‘digging’ bit. Yeah, a particularly good one, author. Thanks!

  3. Unruly Simian says:

    Ah the sweet juxtaposition/double entendre!!!! For the love of Mary!!! Hey why haven’t we seen her yet????

  4. Daz says:

    So, they do have disagreements. Only minor ones though.

  5. El Raisuli says:

    I live in Iowa, where the conservative religious folk successfully recalled the 3 Iowa judges who approved gay marriage last year. Very Distressing.

    Here’s a filk song, inspired by our recent US election. Too annoyed to finish it.

    When the Goons
    Rule the senate or house,
    And Tea baggers
    Pass out cigars.
    Then fear
    Will guide the planners,
    And Life
    Will flee to Mars

    This is the dawning of
    The Age of Precarious,
    Age of Precarious,

  6. Runar says:

    El Raisuli, I feel for ya. Things were just as bad, if not worse, in my home state, where a supporter of Catholic child rape just got elected to the senate. My feelings cannot be expressed lest the authorities break down my door and clap me in irons.

    P.S.: I’m going to pinch your filk and repost it elsewhere. if anybody extends the lyrics, I’ll let you know.

  7. Runar says:

    How about this:

    Disharmony misunderstanding
    Stomping on your head abounding
    It’s all falsehoods and delusions
    Golden life if you’re on Wall Street
    And the middle class subjugation
    Precarious! Precarious!

    Let the oil leak! Let the oil leak in!
    The oil leak in!
    (Repeat and fade)

    The original lyrics can be found here: http://www.elyrics.net/read/0-9/5th-dimension-lyrics/age-of-aquarius-lyrics.html

    By the way: in the musical “Hair”, “Aquarius” and “Let the sunshine in” were considered two different songs.

  8. Oh you guys! All of you, starting with Author. Bravo.

  9. Intelligent Designer says:

    Those lucky miners, eh?

    Trapped underground by ‘an act of God’ for nearly 70 days, only for their rescue to be ascribed to God as well! So they get to suffer a hellish ordeal, and somehow it’s a win for the god squad?

  10. jesus 2.3 says:

    LOL! Your jesus sure seems to be confused. God hasn’t done anything since the beginning of time. He’s just hangin’ out waiting for the end.
    That’s when the judging begins. Who the hell cares about a few minors, everybody’s gotta’ die some day.
    To tell you the truth we all die at exactly the right time. Nobody dies early, and nobody saves anybody’s life. If you can’t handle that reality you must have your head up your butt.
    The Goons have been ruling the senate, house, and that white place with the black guy in it. Long before the black guy arrived.
    To tell you the truth, I’m free as can be. I’ve voted libertarian for over 30 years, and my life has been unbelievably fine!
    You certainly can’t blame me for the mess in your head. In reality the world is perfect just the way it is.
    Wouldn’t you all agree with me?

  11. Atheismo says:

    Jesus? Is that really you? I would have thought the son of g_d would have coherent thoughts.

    Huh. I’ll be damnned. *head scratch*

  12. Tualha says:

    The wicked flee when no man pursueth…

  13. Tualha says:

    I can’t agree with you until I figure out what the heck you’re trying to say, Jesus 2.3.

  14. brent says:







  15. Stephen Turner says:

    @Atheismo: you need to upgrade to jesus 2.3.1

  16. jerry w says:

    The popes involvement with child abuse?
    It’s either a minor one or a miner one, if you dig it.

  17. @Tualha et al. I took a look at his blog. Scary. Don’t feed the troll, folks.

  18. wright1 says:

    If only the devout WERE literally digging in; they’d have hit magma at least a thousand years back. The rest of us could have some excellent geothermal power stations AND a fraction more peace and quiet…

  19. given the child labour stats

    they could easily have been minor miners

  20. European says:

    At least Mo was united with the minor in religious marriage, not an option for Catholic clergy – though I’m not sure which one was more distressing.
    Different start: at least we are not so sure that Mo (the double’s double, that is) ever existed, and therefore Aisha might never have been molested. Of the Catholic child minders we know beyond reasonable doubt. But then, plenty of Muslim men take the Aisha story literally and try to imitate the most perfect of men.
    Turn it over and over again, it ain’t go to be a palatable story…

  21. Stephen Turner says:

    I just remembered this: what will you hear when a piano falls down a mineshaft?
    A flat minor.

    God put ’em in and science got ’em out.

  22. plortho says:

    @j2.3: Wait, el supremo hasn’t done anything since day 0; BUT, on that day he set forth predestination extending to all things forever!? After which, he judges us for following his plan? Sir, your tolerance for cognitive dissonance is tantamount to lunacy. ;P

    I suspect Trollism, but for for the “L” word, which [along with Tea-Partier] means basically, “Screw the world, I’ve got mine”.

  23. dimbulb says:

    One of your best.

  24. Atheismo says:

    @Stephen Turner
    Upgraded to Jesus 2.3.1, restarted Windows ™ (c) (r), and got a fatal error message and the blue screen of death. S’okay though .. it was my work machine not my personal laptop. Whew!

    A flat miner! A miner flat! A minor flat! It’s funny in whatever order you put those words!

  25. jerry w says:

    Panel 3 would have been a great one to bring back the blinking eyes. And I didn’t mean that to sound like I was saying “blinkin’ eyes” as an insult.

  26. ottebrain says:

    @Unruly Simian-Yes! We need Mary please, Author

  27. Voice+of+Saison says:

    Working my way through all the comics. I’m proud of myself for remembering some of the news articles that the jokes are based on. Best strip ever…except for maybe The Far Side. Different, I know.
