This portrait of J.C. lazing on a sunny afternoon is the latest from our friend Pamela Sutter, author and illustrator of May the Farce Be With You: A Lighthearted Look at Why God Does Not Exist

May the Farce be with You


We put up our 1,000th post a week ago. We’re now looking through everything we’ve posted, and are putting up “best of” lists in our most popular categories.

This is the fifth of our first-1,000 “best of” lists. We’ve already posted the Science Fiction, MusicInterviews, and Addictions lists, and will shortly be putting up other “best ofs” in several other categories, including Anarchism, Atheism, Economics, Politics, Religion, Science, and Skepticism.

Humor is by far our most heavily populated category, with 365 posts over the last three years. We found it difficult to pick the funniest ones, but we consider these relative few among the best.

I have no idea who came up with this wonderful graphic. If anyone knows, please leave a comment.

Yes, Virginia, there is a Jesus.

I know this because he mows my boss’s yard every other Thursday. Or maybe you’re thinking about Little Jesus, who worked at the meatpacking plant until the INS raided the place and sent him back to Mexico.

Then again, maybe you’re thinking about the Jesus who is the mayor of Garden City, Kansas. A Republican woman (who was just elected to State Bored of Education) said that he wasn’t born in this country and he had no business serving as mayor. But Jesus says that he was born in Garden City and so was his dad … but she’s not so
sure about that.

Then there’s The Big Lebowski‘s “Don’t fuck with the Jesus.”

And then, of course, there’s also the Jesus that the Southern Baptists talk about. That Jesus hates Catholics, homosexuals, Muslims, liberal Democrats, and a lot of other people. That Jesus is not so sure about women or
blacks, either.

I guess there’s even a Jesus who goes to the Catholic Church. He hates protestants, communists, atheists, abortion doctors, and women who use birth control. I’ve never met this Jesus, but I think he must have a son, Jesus Jr., because I read in the newspaper that a Catholic boy named Jesus accused the priest of molesting him. I don’t know what Jesus Sr. thinks about all this, but he must really like that church a lot, because he still goes there and takes communion from the people who molested Jesus Jr.

Anyway, yes, Virginia, there is a Jesus. There are lots of Jesuses. Some of them are nice guys and some of them are not.
