    Easter’s about him coming back to life.

  7. And where exactly does, human sized rabbits, eggs, tulips (or other flowers, etc), baskets, chocolate and jelly beans fit in?

    “Why not goldfish left Lincoln Logs in my sock drawer? At least that has miraculous connotations…” – Bill Hicks

      Rabbits and eggs are Mesopotamian fertility symbols connected with the goddess Ishtar (or Ester, which is actually where we get the name “Easter”). The original holiday was a spring holiday celebrating rebirth, which is more or less why Christianity appropriated it (along with a bunch of other pagan holidays). Chocolates and candy and whatnot are just corporate interests getting involved. This information is readily available online, Hicks’ question may have worked for comedy before the information age but these days the origin of Easter is quite widely known so it falls pretty flat.

        Bill Hicks is funnier dead than your rotten fish stories. Your critique falls flat.

        • Tuna Ghost | Apr 24, 2011 at 9:18 am |

          Not a critique, herr Doktor. Simply a factual statement concerning the origins of Easter. Why is the truth “rotten” to you, Doktor? Can you tell me? Or is it that I dared to say that one of the esteemed Bill Hicks’ jokes is not very funny anymore when you know the answer to his question? That’s what happens when questions meant as jokes actually have answers that are readily available, Doktor. This is widely known and the phenomena is itself used as a joke. The Simpsons did a bit on it when Krusty was re-entering stand up comedy. Why does this bother you? Why, Doktor? Can you tell me?

            “Or is it that I dared to say that one of the esteemed Bill Hicks’ jokes is not very funny anymore when you know the answer to his question?”
            Who the fuck cares what YOU alone think is funny? As usual your opinion masquerades as fact. I think its funny, regardless of the facts you apply that make it un-funny for you. If no one thought it was funny and relevent, then why was it posted?

            “…. so it falls pretty flat.” The only thing that falls flat is your flat statement. Of course we should all laugh when tuna ghost laughs and scoff when tuna ghost scoffs. Fuck off.

          • Tuna Ghost | Apr 24, 2011 at 12:49 pm |

            I love how when I say “x is y” and you respond with “No, YOU’RE y!” Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.

            Here’s a quick test for you, Doktor: tell me why Bill Hicks asking about the seeming incongruity of eggs and rabbits and the resurrection of Christ is funny when you know the history of it. Can you do that? Can you explain to me how the joke still functions as intended, when the question has a clear and lucid answer? GIve it a go, see what you come up with.

          • If Bill Hicks isn’t funny, the terrorists have already won!

            Obviously, you don’t understand the phrase: “fuck off”.

          • Tuna Ghost | Apr 24, 2011 at 8:04 pm |

            This is your way of saying “I can’t, because you’re absolutely right”, isn’t it. No worries, Doktor. We understand you just fine.

      • Alban Elfed | Apr 24, 2011 at 11:25 am |

        Thank You.

      • Ha ha… Sarcasm is lost on you? My post was meant to illicit a laugh not necessarily a question that required an answer. I, as well as a lot of people, know (or can find out if one wants to bad enough – information age and all) the origins of Easter and its symbolism. My post, while trying to be funny, was also a comment on the original post claiming to show “what this holiday is all about”.

    • Tuna Ghost | Apr 27, 2011 at 3:32 am |

      Huh, actually it appears that the origins are more likely germanic than anything, if we’re going by most recent civilization that we stole from. Eostre and all that. Shame on me!

    If Jesus died on the cross and then was resurrected, when did he “die” the second time?

    • dumbsaint | Apr 24, 2011 at 8:07 am |

      He’s supposed to have ascended to heaven on a cloud.

    • In Apocryphal lore (i.e. books that were left out of the Bible), though which book speaks of it specifically, Jesus (Yeshua), after being crucified, and dying an Earthly death, descended into Hell, which the book of Revelation refers to as “the second death,” to free the saints and prophets that died before his sacrifice was made (Isaac, Abraham, Jacob, David, Solomon, etc.).

    • *edit*

      though which book speaks of it specifically escapes me,

  13. My only question about “The Hamburger of Christ” movie has always been, “Why did they feel the need to make Jim Caviezel/Christ wear a prosthetic nose?”

    Then Mel went on his little rant, and I realized, he felt the need to give Caviezel a bigger, more stereotypical “Jewish” schnoz. You know, for “accuracy”.

    A lot of people were offended by how Jews were portrayed in that, and they pointed to this scene or that as evidence of the anti-semitism, but really, they didn’t need to look any further than the tip of Christ’s nose.

  29. Shame on all who believe in any other God. Jesus is the only one who went through this kind of torture. Feel bad, all of you. Guilt and lots more guilt is what you should all feel.
    Oh wait, never mind.
    God is not real and its all just a big mind fuck. Its a fictional murder suicide. Now that i know this my mind is at rest. Guilt free and happy. Life is good.

  35. Whipping scenes like these don’t do much for me unless one of the parties involved is a hot female.

    I think they’re even better when both parties are hot women.

    But maybe I’m weird…
