“He Nice, the Jesus”

14Jul06

I totally would’ve responded more positively to the whole religion thing had they used this kind of imagery instead of the dull, tending-the-flocks-and-children stuff that was force-fed in my adolescence:

    My favorite Sedaris story of all time – great reference!

    If I had prizes, you’d already be a winner. And you didn’t even need a map!

    The Jesus on the right is PRECISELY the Jesus I grew up with, hanging over the TV for my whole childhood.

    That kind of explains a thing or two, Steve, about me as well as you, since you’re the one of whom I thought when I stumbled upon that image (again).

    “Again”? Yeah, the first time I ever remember seeing that picture was 25 years ago, when my realtor pulled one out of his wallet while explaining his newly born-again status. “Who wouldn’t love a god like that?” he asked me, and I instantly knew exactly what he was getting at, only without his specific follow-through.

    This was the same realtor who passed out in the steamroom at the gym and who, when I expressed some alarm and concern on hearing about it, reassured me that it was actually a good thing; the EMS guy who arrived on the scene to revive him was “really hot”.
