Bernie, I don’t think you can avoid serious religious discussion… and I’m gonna start off by posing the age-old question….

In a fight, would Buddha kick Thor’s ass?

I mean… Buddha with the kung-fu an all… but Thor’s got that hammer….

In a head-to-head, Thor would definitely kick Buddha’s tubby butt. However, make it a battle of wits, and Thor doesn’t stand a chance.

Bernie, that was frikkin funny… especially the last frame… which, to my eternal dismay, I had to explain to my colleague, Nik.
He did a LOT of drugs at university.

So Preston needs Jesus to sign a “get into heaven free” card in order to get past the gates. Think he’d sign it for a month’s free rent? Abe is doing what most of us fear our friends do when we’re out of the room. Good episode. :)

There is a Cardinal Ratzinger Fanclub.

The site seems to be down right now. They have the best t-shirt. It says:

“The Cardinal Ratzinger Fanclub

Putting the smackdown on heresy since 1981″

Wearing our helmets and passing himself off as us to the bearded dress-wearing guy who lives in our spare room?
You’ve tapped into my most primal fear :)

I love the fact that Jesus is asking what color the smoke is. :lol:

Yep. Isn’t it funny the things that seep into our art, whether intended (conscious) or unintended (subconscious archetypes)?!

Anyway, I must have missed this but: what did Preston do to get at the gates to begin with? Did he say something wrong to the Messiah?!

[color=red:962e108e97]And Bernie, I love these latest strips, but is there anyway you can wipe that stoic look off of Hey-soos and maybe use the “Buddy Christ” from Dogma in a panel or two? That would be just groovy, baby, yeah![/color:962e108e97]

Love this stuff!

! <== one more exclamation point just for the h3ll of it.

Great comic! I know how Preston feels with those damn turny htings that do nothing but piss you off. There’s one spot in Toronto that the same thing happens to me all the time! (well except for the Pearly Gates part) Of course the smoke part was awesome. Gotta love Abe eh? But if you htink about it, ABe just sinned in front of Jesus! Isn’t that like the WORST thing anybody could do?? I mean the whole “Thou shalt not bear false witness” Well isn’t abe bearing false witness against Pres by pretending to be somebody he’s not? :roll: I guess that explains why Pres is in heaven and Abe isnt.

:lol: Wow that last panel was the best! If any of you saw the news channels yesterday then what jesus said about the smoke was made even better. Oh and I’m so happy I finally got to see Pres’ mask! Abe rocks :lol: I love this comic

Darn it, we ALL know Ganesha and his crew would beat any pantheon. They’ve got like four arms a piece, man! That’s about… 12 arms!

Anyone else notice how we only have like maybe 3 females on this forum?

And thanks to the author comments I can now say that Pope Benedict XVI is a raver…
XVI is a site [from Ottawa] that basically keeps track of Raves, has techno loving freaks talking etc…
[ http://xvi.com/Your.Nightlife.Network/ ]

That was completely lame but when I saw the XVI I immediately thought that…

Loved todays strip

Bernie, so you odn’t lie to comment too much on politics and I’m guessing you could be less than bothered to comment on politics over the pond.. but is there any chance at all of one of these guys popping over the pond and lunching on Tonay Blair and Gordon Brown before the election? pretty please :)

Wait, there’s a new pope already…:shock:

As we all know the pope is really a super hero, and his hat is like batman’s utility belt. I mean why else 1 have a hat that big and 2 ride around in something called the “Popemobile”. Also the pope has evil smiting eye beams.

Dude, you make a most valid point. Vishnu would be like a veritable windmill of pugilistic destruction, but would he get near someone like Zeus, and his assembled horde of ancient Greek deities?
Trouble’s a-comin’…. and it’s wearing sandals, baby!!!!
And a toga.
And possibly laurels.

Man, I love lofty discussions about… stuff.

Oh, and Weasel… I like you guys way better than stoats. Yer all right.

Whattahell?
Usually it’s 2 posts a day….
Anyway, 3-day weekend, going down to the beach with my chiquita(not the banana you dirty-minded people!!!), man i love getting paid for doing no work!
Have a good one all!!!
And i would put my tabs on Shiva, i mean, the chick that has 6 arms and a sword and some other cutting implement and a guys head as a keepsake must be pissed off enough that no greek god would stand a chance!
I mean, think about it.
Very few of their gods any tough, you get a god that’s always sleepy(Morpheus), always on sauce(Dionisious or something), carrying massive loads on thei backs so no hands available(Atlas)… etc.
I know when my chick gets pissed off, i fugging run, no matter if i can shoot lightning bolts out of my butt or not.
Anyway….
Have a great one, marvelous work Bern, keep it up!!!

hey all… =)

just a question… can anyone explain anout the smoke part? the colour of the smoke?? thanks!

Okay, I have to ask, where is Preston’s body at while his spirit is at the gates of Heaven? Did Jesus and Abe put him to bed, did they call an ambulance for him, is he just lying on the floor? He’s suffered a severe head trauma! He needs medical attention, and they’re just watching tv like nothing’s wrong! It’s like that episode of Venture Brothers where Race Bannon was lying in the street after parachuting from a plane crash, and the kids were all playing with his gadgets and stomping on his head.

Maybe Abe’s mum skulked along and nabbed the body. Predaliens… .__.

Black smoke means they haven’t picked a new pope, and white smoke means they have….

Yeah that would be a little ironic if I was in heaven and Jeasus was in my house.
