Daily Angst: Crazy Mean Jesus gives up smokes, takes up chocolate


My Sweet Lord. It's not that I haven't had any angst for a Daily Angst lately. It's just I am so overly angstified, that anything I can bear to draw without simply imploding from despair will be painfully obvious commentary, like this:

Did you know that chocolate has the potential to bring down a religion? In fact, chocolate is one of the most powerful religions there is. Chocolate is all that is good and right in the world. I think I'll go get some, maybe in the form of a little Easter bunny or creme-filled Cadbury egge complete with sugary fake yolke, or maybe a little Easter sheep. Nummy.

I hear that the artist once covered a bed in ham, which is much more repulsive than a chocolate anything, if you ask me.

"This is one of the worst assaults on Christian sensibilities ever," fumed the head of the Catholic League pressure group, Bill Donohue. Unlike war, poverty, injustice, torture, child abuse, intolerance, bigotry, hate-mongering, and white chocolate with macadamia nuts.

"The 'My Sweet Lord' display was shut down by the hotel that houses the Lab Gallery in Manhattan, said Matt Semler, the gallery's creative director. Semler said he resigned after officials at the Roger Smith Hotel shut down the show.... 'In this situation, the hotel couldn't continue to be supportive because of a fear for their own safety,' Semler said."

Frankly, I think the worst part about it is that the thing just doesn't look very appetising. Chocolate worshippers should protest.

I suppose I also just enjoy spending time in Rome more than drawing about the real world. I mean, I already have to live in the real world. I'd rather tell stories about someplace else. Also, I seldom have a reason to draw bears when commenting about ordinary modern life.

That bear is definitely making an SPQR Blues comeback.
