    Link: Really Odd Captions on Religious Artwork - Yes, this is offensive, but creative. Deserves a look for sheer oddness.

    Hmm.

    Why do people feel like they need to mock religeon in order to get a laugh? Isnt there enough in politics? Pretty stupid humor anyways, replace jesus in the pictures with one of your favorite/most hated celebs and its nothing resembling humor.
    Bashing someones beliefs for a laugh is weak.

    I`ve seen much better jesus humour.

    For example:

    thanks jinexile you just proved that if you throw a religeos icon together into some otherwise humorless cartoon ballons you get Jesus with some humorless cartoon balloons.
    Substitute Jesus for anybody else, you get no laughs from it.
    Why is it fun to belittle such things? Basically it comes down to your weakness in tolerance and fear of others beliefs.

    Yeah, I agree with jtc. And I also notice that you never see humor which mocks Hinduism, Islam, etc. It is almost always Christianity. Which would point to the fact that, contrary to what you say Blip, it is often more about offending people than it is about humor.

    Well there is the fact that people in the US know well more about Jesus and Christianity then Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism and other religions.

    Also humor can be gained by situations out of the ordinary or unusual, Jesus saying LOL a lot is rather unusual. It`s not really mocking or offending anyone. It`d be like a picutre of George Bush in a bug sudsy bubble bath, it`s an unusual situation, thus funny.

    Oh, God. Not this again. Ok look, SOMEONE is bound to get offended by it, but we don`t need to hear you talk about all the aspects of your religion and then shut down other people when they speak about their opinion.

    Opinions are opinions, and you aren`t going to change anyone`s opinion, jtc970. Of course, everyone is going to get all heated up about this and just keep reapeating the same things over and over again.

    as long as people poo in the river downstream from you it is ok right? When they start to dump in the river upstream then you will have no right to complain either

    Wow. No need to get quite so offended. I guess that`s typical through. All I`m saying is that no matter what happens, someone is going to get offended. If they were pictures glorifying Jesus, the same thing would happen, just on the other side of the spectrum.
    If people want to put little captions on religious pictures, how does that stop you from practicing your religion? Oh, that`s right...it pretty much doesn`t affect you at all.
    Let people have their own opinions and be able to post them up here without fear of being told they`re wrong.

    how is this have anything to do with an opinion? Except my opinion is that its stupid. And no it doesnt effect how I practise my religeon but it does affect how others see my religeon. This type of humor is akin to jokes about the holocaust. Laugh all you want. You are the one supressing opinion and making yourself look shallow.

    Wow, those were disturbing more than anything...although, I have to admit that the one making fun of Titanic was kind of funny...I mean, it really looked like Jesus was in the same pose as Leonardo DiCaprio was...

    *sighs* It amuses me. You stick a religious icon with a silly caption and religious types get offended. Do you think we atheists et al get offended when you poke a big stick in the direction of our non belief. You want something that pokes fun properly?

    Feel free to be amused, get annoyed, complain that your religion has not been properly parodied. And actually, Hitler at a bar mitzvah would probably make me laugh my nuts off. The sheer irony of the situation would just split my sides. I like irony, it makes me laugh.

    But then so do closed minded people when they voice their opinions. :D

    "*sighs* It amuses me. You stick a religious icon with a blah blah when you poke a big stick in the direction of our non belief."

    I have never heard an athiest joke. Know any?

    I dont feel any sort of offended by it. Im asking the question why does Jesus make anything funnier?
    Is it because people believe in him and you dont have anything to believe in?

    "But then so do closed minded people when they voice their opinions. :D"
    As you so rightly point out.

    What was not creative! No one actually SAYS "LOL" or "WTF". They should NOT be in speech balloons.

    As opposed to this one going too far, memorex??

    Regardless, those were awesome. Of course the idea of Jesus saying `LOL` every two seconds is ridiculous--that`s what makes it so great! The captions are SUPPOSED to be absurd.

    The humor is supposed to be, as xaielyrith points out here, in the absurdity of it all. You could use the same type of captions in classical Greek art or something to achieve the same effect I suppose. I`m sure whoever created that whole series is either Christian or has plenty of Christian friends. I highly doubt that it was meant to belittle anything. Some people will get the humor, some won`t, that`s all.

    The titanic one was the only funny one, I agree. And "Oh snap a penny!" was cool because pennies didn`t exist in Jesus`s time. You guys just chill if you read the whole thing he even admitted it was done to be stupid and he wasn`t go to Heaven anyway, so what should you care?
