Back at Christmas someone attached this picture to a Christmas e-mail. As is often the case I had several bizarre thoughts about the photo and so saved it off on to the hard drive where I just re-discovered it and the bizarre thoughts returned.
1) I have no idea who the artist was but I can't help but wonder why he felt his savior should look like a 70's coke head? Did Jesus just walk out of studio 54? Look at that hair Cotton! Feathered and lethal!
So was Jesus amongst us again as the lead singer in the Bee Gee's or what? Which of course may be kind of appropriate. I mean, really I can see Jesus singing "I - I - I - I Staying alive, Staying alive" Right?
On the other hand I can't help but think it was very wrong of Jesus to wear such tight pants in that video?
2) The other thought that occurs to me as Jesus gazes longingly at the wee baby sheep is that it looks to me like he is thinking, "Awwww, hey there little fella, don't you just look nummy-nummy! Mmmmmm, so tender! Actually I was in the mood for a nice veal but the "disciple's" can't seem to scrounge any up so I guess you'll have to do. Hey disciples? Is a little mint sauce for your savior too much to ask? I mean I am going to be brutally killed for your souls and all so really is a little mint sauce too much to ask?
I'm sorry, I can't help it. These thoughts just pop into me wee brain. More than once I have thanked the great lamb devourer above that I was not born a few hundred years ago. There is no doubt in my mind I would have died a horrible death at the hands of an angry mob for some of my bizarre thoughts.
