enjoy it while it lasts...

... for Lent blog will be attempting the near impossible; exclusive piety. So feast your eyes on the last piece of shitty art till after this holy season.



... OK, maybe not "exclusive" piety; just no sacrilegious content during Lent.

Not only bad Jesus art, but bad JW Jesus art.

You can't help loving that great Burger King crown on Jesus! And why are they all focused on the hummingbirds?

WTH??!!
In this day and age with all these "Safe Zones", "Safety for Children", etc,etc...will Jesus be prosecuted for "inappropriate touching?"
I mean, REALLY???

Karen stole my comment! What is the burger king doing with this multi-cultural group of children? And what's up with the radiating Obama logo in the background?

"Jesus loves the little children..."
Thank you Ray Stevens.

Did Jesus come through the Stargate?

Reminds me of what H. L. Mencken said about Warren Harding's power of English-butchery: "It is so bad that an awful grandeur creeps into it. It crawls out of the deep abysm of pish, and climbs insanely to the utmost pinnacle of posh. It is rumble and bumble. It is flap and doodle. It is balder and dash."

I thought it was JW art!

CC could you please add where you get the images?

A still from the upcoming remake of King of Kings, proves product placement in Hollywood has gone too far, as Variety reports that the updated version of this classic religious movie will be re-titled, 'Burger King of Kings'!

Terry: Only priests block comments, didn't you know? Priests who are averse to the Magisterium...

Laura The Crazy Mama said...

Yup. That ought to about hold me over. Sigh. Thank you.

Say what you will, I used to love wacky JW art! I bought one of their books once (it was on Revelation) and I used to flip through the pictures in a sort of awe. Look at that happy group of people! Wouldn't you like to be that pretty and clean and happy? No wonder people join, even though it's completely nuts. The art is corny, but hey, so is all that dreary Catholic art (not the stuff you post here -- you know what kind of dreary Catholic art I'm talking about!) and at least it's jolly.
