Backdoor Awe

This is as Jesusy as I could find for the big day.  Bento saw this in Highgate. Why does it seem to have a schoolboy bending over for its awestruck easter exhortation? I be puzzled. I can’t read the text, something about tombs and stuff. Awesome.

    That is a puzzling poster. Even more puzzling is the ending of Mark. Read Mark only up to the original ending (16:8) and youse’ll see what I mean. The tomb was empty, and the women fled in terror and amazement, and that’s it. Big J never came back. Happy easter.

    I assume by the ‘big day’ you mean the birth of DFOC. Judas of our times according to some. Messiah to others. And I imagine to his closest and dearest just a very naughty boy.

    Oh, and then there’s the Jesus thing.

    RE. poster. it does look as though there should be a christ like figure standing behind our awestruck friend. And with the gaping gob, perhaps in front too.

    It’s very odd.

      Maybe the ancient tradition of kneeling before the Lord and Saviour.

      Take a bow, DFOC, you do much to atone for the evils of present day governance and religious extremism in the “Holy Land”.

    Filled with awe and great joy the women ran from the tomb to tell the disciples.

      Got it – it’s a saucy (check out the cleavage) hunchback nun. Possibly one-eyed.
