Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ da jinns

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “jinn2” is recycled from 2007. “Jinn” or “Djinn” are, in Islam, supernatural spirits, either kindly or malicious.  This strip, like most, needs no commentary. I’m already banned in Pakistan, so what further damage could ensue?

    I love that meme–“an open mind with a strict door policy”. I;d forgotten that I heard it in J&M first

    In C.S. Lewis’ Narnia Chronicles, Adam’s first wife, Lilith, is one of the Jinn.
    She is simply an evil spirit in Isaiah, but first identified as Adam’s first wife in the 10th century C.E. Alphabet of Ben Sira. Lewis’ White Witch is in turn descended from her.

    Not really sure how that’s supposed to work if they’re invisible.

      I had completely forgotten that Lilith was in the Narnia books. There sinks even further my view of CS Lewis …

        This sinks my view of Dr. Frasier Crane.

          Jinn or no Jinn, that Lilith smoldered beneath her cool, aloof exterior. 🙂

        A assume you say this due the implicit sexism/mysogyny in the tale.

    You could be banned in (say) Bangladesh, which is catering to Islamists a lot these days. 😉

    Speaking of supernatural spirits, the bartender is losing business. It’s a pub, after all. She should be selling Jinn & tonics to Mo

      Speaking of gin…

      One morning in a fit of pique (sing rickety tickety tin)
      One morning in a fit of pique she drowned her father in the creek
      The water tasted bad for a week, and we had to make do with gin,
      With gin, we had to make do with gin.

        W.C. Fields once observed that he had been on safari in Africa when he lost his corkscrew, and had nothing to live on but food and water for two weeks.
