Jesus doesn’t give a damn.


Whether it’s a joke or not, I can only imagine two responses from believers.

1.  They’ll love it, because those believers endorse all the things encapsulated by this toy.

2.  They’ll consider it a sad derision of their savior and blame the toy-maker for mocking their religion instead of blaming all the people in the first category for creating the stereotype.

You know what would be great?  If Jesus could pop down real quick and settle the question, but apparently it’s not that important.

    I saw this and I was instantly reminded of this picture I took a few days back:
    ‘Cept that that wasn’t a joke, it was actually taken in a church…

      Are you sure that’s Jesus?

      • Godless Teen

        I’m not sure if you meant that as a joke or as a literal question :P but, to answer it either way, it sure as heck looks like Jesus. Or what Jesus is supposed to look like, anyways. I know, the picture on my site isn’t great. It’s a lot easier to see on my phone…

    No way it has real depleted uranium in it. What a rip-off!

    Jesus must be special ops. No way that hair and beard fly in a conventional unit.

    This looks like a spoof to me, although a pretty good one, and to me qualifies as a Poe as well. The main clue is that the mortar is referred to as a rocket launcher. (And I’m no military guy, but I think DU isn’t used for mortar or hand-launched rockets, probably because it’s too heavy.)

      Yeah, I think DU would only make sense on something going rather fast, which a mortar or rocket launcher wouldn’t be. Looking on wikipedia, it looks like pretty nasty stuff.
