    So these three religious icons walk into a bar……
    Owww, that must have hurt…..

  3. John The Geologist says:

    Come on Author.

    We don’t care about your hectic personal life.

    We want our thrice weekly dose of jesusandmo.

    No excuses dammit.

  4. OneLess says:

    Was that “ploop” from the game or is Mo playing Playstation on the toilet?

  5. Rich says:

    Great! Man, I love a good old corny play on words. Top stuff.

    Hey, I wonder what Mo’s favourite game is on his Playstation.

  6. JoJo says:

    I love seeing new stuff, but let’s give the Author a break, eh? I reckon he deserves the slack.

  7. Poor Richard says:

    I’m sure he wants to be taken with a grain of salt; otherwise, John the Geologist is rockheaded if he thinks these cartoons can be taken for granite. They are HARD! Try to dig one up youself some time, Geo. These are rare gems.

    By the way, puns are basic. All humor is Insult, as Poor Richard says. Puns wake us up to absurdity by offending the ear. Ouchie.

  8. John The Geologist says:

    A bushel of salt would probably be necessary Richard.

    I absolutely adore these cartoons and bow to no man in my respect for the Author.

    It is extremely difficult to match the Author’s style and wit and I would not even try. The one cartoon I tried to produce on a cartoon generator was actually pre-empted by Author with Mo choking on his peanut (although mine involved the equivalent of the Barmaid saying “so remind again me why males have nipples”. You can probably see my point.)

  9. Nik says:

    I don’t get it at all. Can someone please explain the comic to me in painful detail?

  10. SmallVoice says:

    Nik, it doesn’t look like anyone else wil offer an answer, so …
    “Ahasuerus” is a quaint, funny, foreign spelling of Xerxes, a minor king who did a good thing for the Jews a while back. He had a wife, Esther, who wrote a book about this. Her book was collected in the rambling mess that is now called “the Bible” in English. It’s one of the few books that don’t have the god of the Jews doing all the work of smiting their enemies. Esther just uses her feminine wiles to protect her people. That and sneakiness.

    However, as you asked the question a decade ago, and a decade is rather a long time, I don’t suppose you’ll ever see this answer which is sad.

    Anyway, if you do read this, was it a sufficiently painfully detailed response? You could always read Esther for more. Not much more, it’s a fairly short book and probably was included just because it was so short.

    Just as an aside: Haman, a bad guy in the Esther book, was hung on a gallows he himself had built. It was rather a tall one. This is where the phrase “hang the bastard hgher than Haman” has its origins.

    Isn’t education fun!
