Yes, it’s a comma joke. Man cannot live by religious satire alone, you know. He needs a bit of punctuation-based humour every now and again.

J&M is taking the first of two one-week breaks next week. Do not fret. During my absence I’ll be automatically posting “resurrections” – old strips dug up, dusted down, cosmetically enhanced, and uploaded into the cloud.

Normal service will be resumed thereafter.

    who knew Moses didn’t support the patriarchal state system?

    have a good break!

  2. Daz says:

    Has that police car got wire-spoke wheels? Pimp My Jam Sandwich!

  3. Dave N says:

    His prints will be all over that can……. 🙁

  4. Maggs says:

    Nah, he’s as much a body double as Mo, there won’t be any print, finger or foot…

  5. […] 6. Jesus and Mo shifted gears with a grammar joke. […]

    Uh-oh. I hope “cosmetically enhanced” isn’t code for CGI and a new scene that shows that the barmaid shot first.

  7. Punctuation jokes are a nice change. Slagging religion begins to feel like beating on one of those inflatable punching dolls that pop back up after every smack. Have a great break.

    Ummm, Darwin, are you sure it’s a **punching** doll? Maybe when you asked in the shop for “something I can hit on” …

  10. Daz says:

    Oh damn, I missed the delete request. I just realised I totally misread What you said Darwin. Please ignore the above.

    Fuck, the Author is taking a vacation! I mean Fuck! The Author is taking a vacation!!! Suppose I’ll live (barely)!!!

  12. Maggs says:

    Punctuation jokes aside, Author deserves a vacation, some time to think about something else altogether. Enjoy some mental downtime, Author.
    PS The new book arrived a couple of days ago, excellent work.

    Eats, shoots and leaves

    excellent book

  14. wright1 says:

    Author has more than earned a good break. And yeah, the idea of Moses acting like the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers brings a smile… At least he has the hair and beard for it.

  15. Don says:

    Yay! FFFB reference.

    Happy hols, Author. Going anywhere nice? Lourdes, Mecca, Vatican City?

  16. Exzanian says:

    Thanks be to the entire pantheon that the author (bless his/ her soul) will provide some manna to nibble on whilst resting (even old yhwh had to rest on the seventh day!

  17. Omar says:

    Good joke 🙂 have a very good one-week break. We’ll be here waiting for your return 😉

  18. junks says:

    kinda confusing… is Moses relevant to the joke? if not it’s a little forced. but every other strip you’ve done is sweet, sweet gold. I love it.

  19. rohan says:

    hey,poke fun at Hindu gods more often….we Hindus feel left out with all your Abrahamic themes….My friends and I want more !

  20. rohan says:

    even Buddha would do…

  21. Susan says:
