Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Lent

Today being the first day of Lent, there’s a special edition of Jesus and Mo called “lenten”, in which the two prophets engage in badinage.

    This one really appeals. I love the last panel.

    Yes, that whole “sacrifice” thing has always seemed lame.

      I’ve said this before, but I’ll say it again. If you check out the opening titles of Top Cat, at one point he gives a coin as a tip to the doorman of a swanky restaurant, only the coin is on a string, so, before the doorman can close his hand around the tip, it is jerked back into Top Cat’s pocket.

      This is exactly how Jesus’ sacrifice works.

    “Jesus had a bad weekend for your sins” just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

    I’ve heard a comedian advise Catholics to give up ‘guilt’ for Lent — and really mess with the system.

      The way I look at it, if Big J died for my sins, the very least I can do is try to make it worth His while.

      Sadly, sinning successfully can be quite fatiguing. And non-stop Sloth doesn’t really cut it.

    There is nothing funny about this pun. It is “drawn by the hair” as we say in German.

    The WEIT gang does not have to give up guilt for lent does it.
