    Happy Birthday Jesus and Happy Eid Mo.

    Well done Author. My cartoon series of the year.

    I am off to Comet now to get me a new irony meter (mine exploded with a resounding spoing when I read about homeopaths bringing dead people back to life).

    Ironic also that if you use Google Trends and put in “GOD” the number of hits goes down every Christmastime.

  2. Congo Dave says:

    Ah, those cheap Taiwanese Irony meters. Any Italian or US-made Irony meter wouldn’t have broken under such a mild barrage of confumbling statements!

  3. Chiaroscuro says:

    Where can I order Irony meters? living in a catholic country (Colombia) reselling and repairing can be a very lucrative business.

  4. Roger says:

    Thanks for all the laughs this year.

  5. grouchy-one says:

    Merry SPOING to one and all.

  6. ann44 says:

    Hahaha, the irony meter joke never gets old!

  7. Big Tom says:

    I’d invested in a super industrial-strength irony meter, but it melted after the Pope’s comments were reported this morning.

  8. Sabrina says:

    See you next year, and thanks for all the laughs. ^_^

  9. Poor Richard says:

    Between now and your return, Author, we will be swamped with plenty of irony to keep us amused

    Poor Richard wishes you all, believers included and especially, a more enlightened new year.

    If I were to send out one of those oh-so-cheery year-end reports, it would start “Well, we barely made it through another year, but mostly regressed instead of progressed. Little Billy broke his arm, Suzie flunked out of college, Papa’s firm went bankrupt, Mom’s back in rehab. But we had a great year because of ‘Jesus and Mo’.”

    I will miss the irony meter!
    Merry Holidays! 😉

  11. JMo says:

    I wonder if the “ACME” company from Road Runner is the manufacturer of the infamous Irony Meter? Don’t get me started on the religious analogies of our favorite cartoon characters. We all know there is evil living there…..Anyway happy holidays Author please rest up for ’09!!!!!!!

  12. Jerry w says:

    To modify one of my favorite phrases, “When a year passes, we should say something good about it”.

    2008’s finally ended…..

    2009 has no where to go but up, how ironic.
    Spoing indeed.

  13. Achim says:

    Thanks a lot for the comics this year, you brought some fun in my life, author


  14. I wish there was a rating thingy on here. I’m getting the urge to give every strip 100%.

  15. JohnnieCanuck says:

    Joy and Peace, one and all.

    Just think, as long as we have the religious giving us no peace, we will have the joy of the author’s commentaries to compensate.

  16. Jerry w says:

    “Jesus and Mo will be back in January” sounds so terrible,
    until you do the math….. Could be as little as a bit over a
    week, just a moment in the bigger scale of things.

    Of course how long “just a moment” is depends a lot on
    which side of the bathroom door you’re on.

  17. Ish says:

    Thanks for the many many laughs all year.

  18. shpalman says:

    “A Catholic priest has been criticised by parents in a city in northern Italy for telling their children that Father Christmas does not really exist.

    “The priest said he had never intended to hurt anyone, but it was his duty to distinguish the reality of Jesus from the story of Father Christmas which was a fable just like Cinderella or Snow White.”

  19. JoJo says:

    @shpalman: SPOING!!!

  20. Colonel Leisure says:

    I read that shpalman and wondered what if I were to go into a church and tell the congregation that their god is just a fairytale and just a means to keep them under control and that I feel it my duty to inform them of this. Argh, it’s not worth it!

  21. Simon Bishop says:

    Reason’s greetings author. Thanks for another year of great humour.

  22. Joe Fogey says:

    Thanks – it’s been a laugh.

  23. That is not either enough irony meter jokes. Irony meter jokes are god. No I was just

    Meanwhile what am I supposed to do with this busted irony meter?! I want a working irony meter! It’s no fair.

  24. Peter L says:

    Thank you Author for the laughs and down-right cleverness. Much looked forward to and appreciated.

  25. daoloth says:

    I am still picking the pieces of my irony meter out of the wall following the Pope’s message. Thanks for the laughs author.

  26. Mel says:

    The Irony-meter as deus ex machina, splendid!

  27. Hobbes says:

    Congo Dave, all irony meters in the United States have been broken since the Cheney Administration said they would bring respect and transparency back to the White House, and called fundamental Islam, “fascist.”

    Hope everyone had a grand Winter Solstice Holiday!

  28. hyoid says:

    Hey Art, those little squiggley things you change everytime you put up a new picture are interesting. Some of them block my view of the Barmaid’s body, but those others…., those others, what they’ve shown of her mind…Open, poured small puddles on the table…Stirred and swished and finally left to grasp idea’s form….(MY GOD!!… HAVE YOU NO DECENCY??)…settle, settle…The first scene sown’s worth all its fellows…Follows on are strong, firm, mellow…Purging “Truth” with tallow, lit with sorrows deep and shallow…To air is human, live sane…. Divine. Rest well, cherished petal.

  29. grouchy-one says:

    Yeah Hyoid – can’t put it better myself 🙂

  30. Colonel Leisure says:

    @hyoid. I’ll have what he’s having X’D

  31. Jerry w says:

    Hyoid seems to have missed the message about avoiding the brown acid.
    Happy 2009 to all…..

  32. Uncle Roger says:

    That is TOO funny! You’re going to get me fired for laughing too loud (and I’m working at home today!) Awesome.

  33. JMo says:

    The brown acid….I figured that was what the Author imbibed in order to conjure up all of these wonderful (4 pane) funnies!!!!!

  34. claire joy says:

    It’s January. Where are they?

  35. JMo says:

  37. […] Reuters reports that Osborne wants the film to be “international epic production aimed at bridging cultures.” That will “educate people about the true meaning of Islam.” Maybe I’m being too cynical, but that last quote almost broke my irony meter. […]
