    But he was only protecting them! The boning was neither here nor there. Though I suspect it was mainly there.

  2. Sparky_Shark says:

    Mo has wives? But lives with his, at best, asexual bed-companion, same-sex life-partner? And he’s not a feminist? I’m lost. I accept I’m just getting old and failing to keep up, but Author, have I missed something? Where are all the Mrs Mos in this narrative? And last week, when Mo was running around as a cross-dresser, that’s not embellishing his fem-creds?? Sigh…perhaps I go back to the Far Side reruns, they’re more my speed. 🙂

    islam is feminist?
    That brings out every pessimist
    Creatures, female
    Exist only for tail
    For everything else, women are not on the list.

  4. Innocent Bystander says:

    @Sparky_Shark. Remember (from the first J&M strip) that Mo is a body double of the One that may not be represented, not the real thing, else this cartoon would be blasphemous. A body double may act the part of another, but he is not authorised to commit adultery with the One’s wives.

  5. Another great punch line I didn’t see coming, Author. Bravo.

  6. Anonnynonnymouse says:

    Thankyou, Author, for these gems- hitting where it hurts !

  7. M27Holts says:

    Separate entrances and areas in a mosque. The separation of sexes in madrassas. Separate dress codes and moral expectations. Sharia law is chock full of such androphyllic/gyneaphobic drivel. Yet 90% of british Muslims would love to live under its harsh shadow. The death camps would follow…..

  8. Laripu says:

    @Sparky_Shark, my guess: Mo’s wives are occupied with having hot monkey sex with Jesus’ apostles. They received tutoring in these arts from Nastya Rybka.

  9. HelenaHandbasket says:

    M27Holts. You are an obvious Islamophobe. Are you sure that you are not yourself a muslim? According to the left wing in the UK, the most prominent Islamophobes are muslims. Coming soon, up is down, left is right, freedom is slavery, and How I learned to Love Big Brother

  10. M27Holts says:

    @helenahandbasket. Guilty as charged! However please take into consideration my phobia of all organised religion and also complete enmity for all other crackpot cults and splinter groups. I feel that Muslim extremism is more likely to kill my family than militant members of the flat earth society!

  11. Sparky_Shark says:

    @Laripu. “Hot monkey sex” made tea come out of my nose. Sitting here sniggering like a fool. Thanks.

  12. Deimos says:

    I can’t see the hot monkey sex even in a very cartoonish world.
    After years of Mo’s attitude and attentions I think all of his exe’s would be fancying same sexes.
    And the friends of big J would all be …. celibate.

  13. Some Dude says:

    Islam gives women a lot of rights! The right to remain quiet, the right to be forced to wear a garment that renders them devoid of any sort of dignity, the right to please their husband (or their closest male relative), the right to be sentenced to death for being raped… and the list goes on and on.

  14. Laripu says:

    @Sparky_Shark …. I live to serve. 🙂

  15. HelenaHandbasket says:

    M27Holts. Unacceptable. You are allowed to hate Christians and Jews (presumably because they are successful?) However hating muslims will get sneers of “We don’t believe that you had liberal values about gays and women until the opportunity to hate on brown people came along”.
    On the bright side I can now pinpoint the exact moment when I stopped identifying as left wing…

  16. HelenaHandbasket, I’ve come to believe that the terms “left wing” and “right wing” have lost their meaning and no longer identify with either. I rather like “progressive” and “reactionary”, taking progressives to be folks who actually want to redress some of the injustice in the world and reactionary to be those who long for their imagined good old days, when things seemed to be better for their particular segment of the tribe.
    I get emails occasionally about how glorious it was to be able to ride in the back of the pickup truck or drink from the garden hose. To a tiny extent, I share that nostalgia. But mostly I look at the world we have today and the world of my childhood does not look good in comparison.

    …taking progressives to be folks who actually want to redress some of the injustice in the world and reactionary to be those who long for their imagined good old days…

    We are the folk song army,
    Every one of us cares.
    We all hate poverty, war, and injustice
    Unlike the rest of you squares.

  18. jb, ah yes. Good ole’ Tom Lehrer. I grew up listening to the record he put out in the fifties, and I used to sing a lot of his songs, back when I thought they were humorous. “My Home Town”, “I Hold Your Hand in Mine”, “The Wienerschnitzel Walts” (“Since I still appreciate you, let’s find love while we may. Because I know I’ll hate you, when we are old and grey.”) I still admire his talent for satire and ridicule, but I don’t sing his songs anymore. Too cynical for my taste now. Too downright ugly.
    I suppose I’m still a member of the folk song army. I see value in giving expression to what most people want, and opposing publicly what most people don’t want.
    I guess what I’m saying is, hey, Tom Lehrer, you wrote some cute songs back in the day, but fuck you.

  19. jb, now that you have me remembering Tom Lehrer, there’s probably no better example of his snobbishness and elitism than the introduction to his Irish ballad. In this version he uses the word “the people”. The version I remember from my youth went something like: “The reason folks songs are so bad is that they were written by folk.” That may have been the beginning of my disinfatuation with Mr. Lehrer.
    My daughter sometimes performs this song as her party trick. She sings it quite sweetly.

  20. M27Holts says:

    I don’t hate anybody. No reason to, I suppose. But it does get on my tits when another Koran inspired atrocity is attributed to political grievance! Voltaire nailed it with this simple statement. “Those who can be made to believe in absurdities can be made to perform atrocities!”

    DW: Hi Darwin – lost your sense of irony in your old age?

  22. Author says:

    M27Holts – can I ask a favour? Please include an email address when you comment here (it can be fake). Otherwise I have to approve every comment you make. Thanks.

  23. Laripu says:

    @Darwin Harmless: I define left/right like this:

    One wants to make sure the deserving are helped … even if some undeserving people thereby get something they don’t merit. The other wants to make sure that no undeserving people get anything they don’t merit … even if thereby many deserving people are not helped.

    What complicates this is that to some, the “undeserving” are mostly those of despised races or religions.

  24. jb says:

    DH — Wow. I’m not actually a huge Tom Lehrer fan, but still, I don’t remember The Irish Ballad at all! I Know I must have heard it (especially as it’s on his first album!), and in fact the “88 string guitar” bit did ring a bell, but the song itself seems to have made absolutely no impression on me. Not one of his better efforts, I have to agree. (I am a big fan of Irish music though — although more the instrumental variety, which is great fun to play).

    I also have to agree that a Progressive/Reactionary axis is perhaps more useful these days than the traditional Left/Right. Being something of a reactionary myself I tend to see progressives as quasi-religious utopians, so I suppose I shouldn’t get too upset if you see us as backward-looking fuddy duddies. Nevertheless, we too are against poverty, war, and injustice.

  25. jb, “we too are against poverty, war, and injustice.” Unfortunately it’s hard to extrapolate this from conservative policies. I’ve noticed that everybody thinks they are right, that they are the good guys. “Unlike all of you squares.”
    I came on a bit harsh on ole Tom. I do appreciate him, and know the words to most of his songs, especially the old ones. He was a breath of fresh air amid the sanctimony of my youth. But just to make him even more wrong, there are 230 strings on a piano, though I suppose he wasn’t using all of them.
    And it seems we have something else in common, other than being against poverty, war, and injustice. I too am a fan of Irish instrumental music. I recently learned Morrison’s jig on the fiddle, and thanks to a workshop with Kevin Burke I may actually master the Irish roll, or burr, that makes his playing so much fun.

    Son of Glenner re my sense of irony. Hard to tell. My irony meter has been on the fritz for months now. And there are times when irony doesn’t age well, becoming somewhat rancid.

    Laripu, yes. Pretty much how I see it.
