I’m Sure He Said It

If Phil Plait can appear in Zach Weiner cartoons, then I’m just going to pretend this little boy is me when I was younger :)

    It’s about the only thing we can be sure he actually said, really.

      If he existed.

        Perhaps I should have said, “Assuming he existed, that’s[...]“

          Given that there is no evidence that Jesus supposedly should have left behind if he did exist, it is safe to assume that the Jesus as talked about by Christians never existed.

            *nods*

            Let me change that to: “Assuming, for the sake of argument, that Jesus existed, that’s about the only thing we can be certain he did say.”

            Which kind of ruins the joke.

      In case you’re not being sarcastic: what would you say if you were being crucified? If you are being sarcastic: well played, Trace, well played.

        Thanks nfq. Sadly enough I was not being sarcastic. I never claimed to be smart :)

          I didn’t get it either. I think it would have been more clear if the bottom text and the illustration were swapped positions, but I’m sure the author had a reason for their positioning.

            That’s always (that I’ve seen) the positioning at xkcd. Set you up with a “wha. . . ?” and then hit you with a “ooohhh!!!” Personally, I think it makes it funnier that way.

              That’s SMBC, not XKCD. Very different comics.

                Oops. Not sure how I screwed that up. Can I blame the late hour? Or my wife changing the bedroom around? 

                Does that work?
