Blatantly stolen...

...from Old Horsetail Snake:

Christ is on the cross when he says, "John, John."

John tries to get closer so he can see what Jesus wants. But the Roman soldiers grab him and throw him down the hill.

John makes his way back up the hill, behind the cross, and finally gets close enough to ask: "Yes, my Lord, what is it?"

Jesus: "John, John, I can see your house from here."


Edited 2/21/06 to add:
All my commenters have been so freaked out by this joke that I thought I would go back and check on Old Horsetail's commenters to see if they thought he was also endangering his mortal soul.

For some reason, his readers thought the joke was a hoot. I guess Old Hoss' soul has a little more wiggle room than mine on the big getting into Heaven scales.

Have I missed a local cultural thing, or do you just want to go to Hell? with Horsetail guy?

That's terrible!

Lorna - I'll be in good company. When you get to Heaven, put in a good word for me...say a couple of Novenas.

Jen - I know. I couldn't help myself.

Laurie, save me a seat in Hell. From the sound of things, you'll be close to the front. At least we'll know people and have someone to talk to. Cindy

Mom said...

Now I have another reason to pray harder on Sundays. For you and Old Horsetail. Jesus is now only watching he knows how to read. SHAME, SHAME

Laurie said...

Cindy - Will do. Davie can finally introduce us!

Mom - Jesus can read and I'm sure he has a sense of humor. At least, I hope so.

I guess I'm on a fast track to hell with you Laurie since I found it humorous too. I just feel lucky that I didn't go out and start any riots over it!

Laurie said...

Ed - That occurred to me, too (the riot thing).

Tim said...

The only people going to hell are the sick people who invented it and the cruel people who threaten other people with it.

Besides, blasphemy is a victimless crime.

Peace,
Tim

Neal said...

What? We're not already in hell? It gets worse?

Laurie said...

Tim - You are living hell on earth right now aren't you?

Neal - I guess hell already froze over in your case.

I just posted a joke today, now I'm a little concerned. Oh well, if they don't like it, they will just have to build a bridge and get over it. I liked yours.

Laurie said...

Tanked Up Taco - Your joke was funny, too.
