Deity Joke

Easter is on the way.
In the Lake District, it’s easy to spot this despite the holiday’s date-shifting, month-jumping intransigence from year to year; just look at the local businesses gearing up for visitors.
This week there was Another Sign.
And lo, a decorator in the Dales didst sit down to eat his sandwiches when he saw the face of Our Lord and Saviour™ staring at him from out of the wall. Not being particularly sore afraid, the decorator didst finish his lunch and then gave the face of Jesus a couple of coats of emulsion.
But not before taking a photograph, which is proudly displayed on page 3 of this week’s Westmorland Gazette.
Not being one to give up the opportunity to offend for Lent, here is my take on the matter. Eight cartoons were submitted (I was trying for twelve of course) but only one didst make it to the front page. See which you prefer and then get thee to my website and see which one met with the editor’s approval.


  1. Definitely No2, but no chance of publication!

  2. Sadly,no …

    And I didn't even show them the one with the boy drawing on the wall with a crayon and mum saying, "That's not Jesus, that's a very naughty boy."

  3. Lol, he's not the messiah then Colin? I like the second to last one - double miracle :-)
