So I was searching images.google.com for sheila-na-gigs and found a seemingly out-of-place image of a Jesus fish with ΙΧΘΥΣ. Huh? So I checked out this page
about mermaids, starting with the Starbucks logo. The author claims that the ever present coffee goddess's pose is like that of a shiela-na-gig (that is, holding open her vulva). Now take a look at the Star Doe (a Star Buck, by convention, would be male). Now, find the nearest vagina and associated arms. Contemplate that anatomical challenge, if you will.
So what does this have to do with Jesus? Well, one of the primary Christian symbols is the birth of Christ -- the emergence of God from a human vagina. So what better image than this:
Who'd've thought you'd see a vagina-in-birth image on your friends page that's Safe For Work™?
Incidentally, a Google image search for "jesus fish vagina" and variants returns no results. A regular Google search
, however, returns such gems as "Although most women do not have an actual fish stuck up into their vagina emitting this type of odour..."
And as long as I'm on the subject of Jesus, I often wonder whether Gary Numan is trying to be faithful or blasphemous. Regardless, however, I want to write a filk version of Dead Heaven
inspired by the following line of an AIM chat with slyviolet
: W00t. Kisses in exchange for UNIX knowledge. I must have died and gone to /dev/heaven
I wonder if philosophy departments in Christian universities teach symbolic theologic.
