  1. A rose by any other name says:

    Precisely, although I can’t recall if Mo has ever had his full name said in the comic. Keep your head about you author, and thank you for your bravery and continuing sharing of your humour. <3

  2. Jesus F Iscariot says:

    I’d like to see Jesus and [Xx] keep going, but I am concerned that some Iz Lam nutter will blow up some page involved in the propagation of anti-superstitious truth. I hope the bartender is wearing her Kevlar vest (and the author too). If they track down e-mails and come after our Torontonian complement they’ll have to quarantine for two boring weeks and maybe they’ll get distracted by the local strip clubs and bars.

  3. Emma Peel says:

    Thank you, Author, for your unwavering dedication to highlight the utter ridiculousness of these religions. If only you weren’t preaching to the choir…. My offer of a bolt hole still stands should you feel the need. Take care of yourself.

  4. samhuff says:

    i’d like the the Islamic version of Jesus to appear.

  5. The Beagle says:

    Mo was stated in an earlier comic to not be Mohammad but to be his body double.

  6. M27Holts says:

    Well the existence of a single historical jesus is open to serious doubt. Far more likely to be a mythical creation loosely based on other mythical men of legend…mo was a homicidal pig-ignorant camel-shagger…they do make for a good hypothetical comedic pair tho who is the comic and who is.the straight man?

  7. Lawrence Noble says:

    You are a gift sir and/or madam keep up the good work. 🙂

  8. Laripu says:

    M27Holts, isn’t the bartender the straight woman?

  9. M27Holts says:

    Laripu. Aye of course. But 3 way comic acts are way rarer than double acts…the three stooges are possibly my favourite and one of them is MO!

  10. Person N says:

    @The Beagle… but that was the double in that strip. Are we always seeing the double? And was he the double of the real prophet, or just a double for another Mo? All I am sure of is that Mo ain’t Moses, since Big Mo(ses) sporadically pops up.

  11. Laripu says:

    M26Holts, even as a kid I hated the three stooges, after age 10. But I started to like the Marx brothers at age 16.

    I loved Monty Python, it goes without saying.

    In the 80s, I liked a British duo called “Alas, Smith and Jones” and a Canadian quartet called”the Frantics”, and another called “the kids in the hall”.

    My current favorite comedian is John Mulaney. He’s quite odd in his delivery, and I like that.

  12. M27Holts says:

    Yeah. I stated my preference for them as a threesome. Obviously python is several magnitudes superior. But if you want anglified humour at its best you have to watch..1. The league of Gentlemen, 2. Bottom and 3. (For more subtle english humour) The Beiderbeike Affair….

  13. Laripu says:

    M27Holts, “Little Britain”, and a TV show called Coupling, about 20 years ago. All versions of Yes, Minister. Great stuff.

    I don’t get much BBC, and don’t like everything I get.
    My wife loves reruns of Keeping Up Apoearances… I want to vomit watching it.

    Lots of good stuff comes out of the UK. For example, I’ve always liked the Stones … Until their recent all-blues record, which is unmitigated crap. I know all the original songs and the Stones versions are miserable.

  14. M27Holts says:

    Haha. Hyacinthe Bucket….the stuff I listed is not popular sitcom stuff…think very dark comedy and alternative…

  15. Troubleshooter says:

    Okay, you two, answer me this:

    When was the last time a radical Islamist beheaded someone,
    And When was the last time a secularist beheaded someone?

    Or is the answer too inconvenient?

  16. Laripu says:

    M27Holts, I just remembered a UK series I recently binge-watched: Fleabag. Very funny and well made.

    For an excellent American series, a period piece, try The Marvellous Mrs Maisel. Very funny.

  17. Dr John the Wipper says:

    I never heard about Mrs Maisel.
    I only know Maisel (gender unknown to me) as a pretty good brand of German Weizenbier.
    Guess that says more about me, preferring beer above telly series….

  18. M27Holts says:

    The appreciation of good beer is a noble trait Mr Whipper…however I reckon you would appreciate the extremely dark characters that populate the fictional town of Royston Vasey….which is also the real name of an extremely contraversial (but very funny) stand up very blue comedian…

  19. Laripu says:

    Hi Dr John, I’ve had Maisel’s Weisse many years ago during a 4-month stay in Bavaria. There were many great beers, but the best was from a monastery. I had it at the monastery’s restaurant. It was a standard strength dunkel, this one:

    Since then, I’ve only felt that one other beer has been as outstanding: XH, a Belgian style beer from the Japanese brewery Hitachino Nest:

    These are both amazing.

  20. Laripu says:

    A televangelist who claimed that covid-19 was god’s punishment for formation … had died of covid-19.

    I wonder whether he considered that preschool children have died of it. Guess god has really bad aim.

  21. M27Holts says:

    I suppose you meant fornication….mind you it’s more likely to kill the religious….they would pray rather than rest and take in loads of fluids….

  22. Son of Glenner says:

    Laripu: There was a time when that kind of televangelist claimed that HIV/AIDS, which was then almost always fatal, was God’s punishment for homosexuality. (Although they did not claim that the contemporaneously novel “Legionnaire’s Disease” was God’s punishment for attending American Legion conventions!)

    Nowadays, people with HIV can lead almost normal lives, thanks to medical science, but with no help from televangelists. Hopefully, the same will happen with Covid-19.

  23. Son of Glenner says:

    Laripu/M27Holts: Ah, the joys of spellcheck and autocorrect!
