Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ hipster Moses

Yesterday’s Jesus and Mo, called “busy”, came out a little late. Maybe I don’t get this one, but it doesn’t seem up to par for the strip.

    I took it simply as commentary about a certain kind of modern language use.

      I concur. A commentary on a particular ‘style’ of expression. Also it shows us that our divine cast of characters are broad individuals that concern themselves with more that theistic issues. (Although, and God would have had a hand in the creation of shit and fucking: two things that truly link all of humanity (when you think about it).

    Perhaps it’s a commentary on those who are religious because they think it makes them look cool, but in reality all it does is make them look stupid.

    I don’t get it either, but I think such words are a vital part of language only if they’re reserved for cases where one wants to convey an unusually extreme level of emotion and sincerity. Otherwise, one tends to acquire a reputation for speaking that way only because one thinks it’s cool.

    I know kids (late 20’s) who talk like this. It appears to work as a form of communication.

    Dang whippersnappers!

    Alas, I know some people who are in their 60s who talk like that, apparently still pretending they are in their 20s and 1969 hadn’t faded into history about 47 years ago.

    So Jesus needs to ask Mo why Moses is talking like that? Sometimes that – knows everything stuff just doesn’t stand up.

    The Artist explains below the strip that he’s busy and has sh*t to do.

    I think “cool” is the proximate cause for this kind of language. Later on, within a circle of peers, it becomes habit.

    It subtly digs at religious fanatics going along with Trump’s speaking style. Supporting him despite his penchant for ignoring polite speech conventions

      Yeah, it’s all in the punchline.
