  1. JayBee says:

    Damn! I thought that was a joke! or is it?

  2. Benjamin Geiger says:

    Is there anything Bill O’Falafel says that ISN’T a joke?

    (but yes, he actually said that)

  3. Dick M says:

    I was expecting Rick Warren, not Bill O’Reilly. But both are fatuous and either will work here.

  4. Jerry w says:

    And McDonalds sells millions of hamburgers every day, therefore they must be the best place to go to eat the best food, eh?
    Oh Really?

  5. Uncle Roger says:

    Evidence of stupid people is not evidence of God. In fact, if I were God, I’d be bloody embarrassed that my creations listened to that moron.

  6. Warren says:

    Now if O’Reilly were simultaneously struck by lightning, crushed by a meteorite and swallowed by a sinkhole, I might start wondering about the existence of a god.

  7. BeefontheBone says:

    Hell, if he/she/it did that to O’Reilly I’d drop to my knees and worship him/her/it on the spot.

  8. Daniel says:

    There might be something to this argument — this is fairly good evidence for the existence of Satan. God might follow from induction.

  9. Hobbes says:

    That O’Reilly is rich and famous only proves he has a hell of a lot of mean spirited, shallow followers. Thanks, Newt.

  10. Trev says:

    I’m not sure I get it. Kim Jung Il, Robert Mugabe, Charles Manson… all famous. Is that the g-o-d’s fault too? Seriously, I don’t think I get today’s strip. Or maybe I just don’t get Bill O’Reilly. That seems more likely.

    So, seriously, what DOES the barmaid have to say about that? I would appreciate her guidance.

  11. Toast in the machine says:

    Bill O’Reilly is in America, and I’m not – therefore he’s not on my TV, and god must exist. That almost works.
    And he’s at number 205 in this handy list:

  12. MrGronk says:

    I suspect that when O’Reilly tries this argument out on unbelievers they all end up saying “Jesus”.
    Weak pun but I need to try out my avatar.

  13. Well you see it’s rather like the flower argument for the existence of God, which in turn is very like the waterfall argument for the existence of God. It goes like this:

    See this flower [waterfall]? Therefore God exists.

    So you just make it

    See Bill O’Reilly? Therefore God exists.

    It’s unanswerable. I’m sure the barmaid would agree.

  14. O’Reilly’s success proves that if there is a God, He has an inordinate fondness for morons. (With apologies to JBS Haldane.)

  15. Hobbes says:

    Actually, the existence of O’Reilly, Dick Cheney and his bitch, GWB, only shows that evolution often makes mistakes, producing invalid results. Reversions, if you will.

  16. JoJo says:

    O’Reilly is actually cleverly putting himself so far in to the absurd that satire becomes redundant and he is no longer ridiculed on a daily basis. At least I’m assuming that’s what he’s up to. He could just be a fuckwit.

  17. Hobbes says:

    Anyway, Jesus is wrong. It’s not a miricle, it’s a non sequitur, as are most of the “proofs.” Come to think of it, so is O’Reilly.

  18. Yelinna says:

    A barbarian born in a working class?? Listened by millions of people???
    I thought Jesus was talking about Hitler!!

    oh, sure, I see now what kind of God is out there…

  19. fenchurch says:

    Bill O’Reilly? Bold? Fresh? Remembers lessons? Rich? Listened-to?
    You can’t explain that!

  20. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    Working class roots, watched and listened to worldwide. Jeremy Fucking (that’s his real middle name. Honest) Kyle is the son of God? Aaaagh! Nurse, book me a one-way flight to Switzerland and get Digitas on the phone. NOW!
