  1. David Heasman says:

    Lots of old Byzantine icons show Jesus with a giant erect nodger. “A Man Entire” so to speak. In fact in the US some years ago someone did a modern icon in that guise and caused a big hoohah.

  2. AlfieNoakes says:

    Fnar, fnar!

  3. Eric Meyer says:

    He is risen indeed!

  4. Matthew Maguire says:

    They always claim he was a hard act to follow.

  5. Alan Flynn says:

    The duel “death erection” and death resurrection of Christ prior to his encounter with Mary Magdalen. A time to celebrate.

  6. Alan Flynn says:

    *dual, whoopsie.

  7. Josh says:

    And many theological riches were unlocked in the sermon that day.

  8. Reverend Jim says:

    I’ve always thought it is bad form to attack the person rather than the ideas so I thought this was in questionable taste. However, I also like Jimmy Carr, and bad taste or not, it’s still funny.l

  9. Ole Kj says:

    A danish artist, art historian and provocateur, Jens Jørgen Thorsem made this painting around 1970.

  10. E.A. Blair says:

    That’s not an erection – it’s the Roman soldier’s lance.

  11. M27Holts says:

    He’s not Messiah , he’s just a very naughty boy….

  12. M27Holts says:

    Not THE messiah….sorry

  13. Alan Flynn says:

    Catholics finally waking up to the ancient Hindu veneration of the lingam. I’ve also seen a depiction of the Virgin Mary in the form of the yoni. There’s hope for Papists yet.

  14. DC - Toronto says:

    That’s not an erectin … he had a banana in his robe in case he got hungry later

  15. Brainsmith says:

    From the source article: ‘The investigation has been very recently completed and the complaint is upheld.’

  16. postdoggerel says:

    Son of God, you say?
    Indeed. Priapus, that is.
    One straight-up rod god.
    He is but one of many deities who may never appear in the Cock & Bull. Not for so long as Barmaid’s proscription against cockwombles still holds.

  17. M27Holts says:

    I am thinking that I may yet have a multiple visitation by the three godesses of Nymphomania, otherwise known as a “Wet Dream”….

  18. Prfesser says:

    Welp, now we know why the women did all the bathing and…stuff…with the body after it was taken down for burial. Wonder if Mary Magdalene visited the tomb (“Just once more, I really need to mourn him privately…please…”) before the stone was rolled in place.

  19. M27Holts says:

    Anyway, this is the 21st century, we have viagra now….

  20. postdoggerel says:

    Prfesser, that is where the term tumescent originated.

  21. mcalex says:

    So crucifixion gives you an erection but hanging makes you come. It’s good that the species has become more civilised over time 😀

  22. M27Holts says:

    So when the consul wanted to hang his toga virulis up, he gad a geezer with a big norris nailed to a tree? Good job he didn”‘t own a bike as well….

  23. postdoggerel says:

    M27Holts, your inadmissible inarticulations and irreductible apothegms vie for supremacy in your colloquy. Would that your dialectical contortions do due diligence to the eschewing of obfuscation and opacity. Plus, your dangling participle is way off topic.

  24. M27Holts says:

    I aim to spread Swinton erudition and vernacular to areas beyond my small village…..

  25. M27Holts says:

    I also read books (except romantic classics, mills n boon etc)…

  26. postdoggerel says:

    M27, I’m sorry. You are an erudite and upheld speaker of your dialect, and are esteemed by your international colleagues. I was wrong to accuse you of using a dangling participle. Here is an example of such…

  27. M27Holts says:

    I did Applied Marh, Pure Math, Physics and Chemistry at College and computer science at Salford University. Such things like a dangling participle were not in my syllabus….

  28. M27Holts says:

    When I bailed my swede out this morning, I anticipated a bit of an early finger-pie, but the doris was snoring like a snide exhaust pipe. So I decised that today I would have to settle on being a “low-light sprout merchant” and decided to shave my bonce….

  29. Smee says:

    As stiff as a corpse

  30. postdoggerel says:

    M27, I admire your pursuit of the hard sciences. Where I am, here in the USA, we wish we had such an educational system as yours…

  31. M27Holts says:

    My math tutors were all men I’m afraid…

  32. postdoggerel says:

    M27, your remark reminds me of the Hitch quote, “Why was the quaker girl excommunicated?” “Too men a night.”

  33. M27Holts says:

    I must admit, I had to google that joke…far too subtle for me….
