Jack the Lass says:
Well, you well and truly fooled me. As I trawled down the different slippery slope scenarios, I was convinced that the end one would be a fish in the car’s back windscreen, meaning that you were hated by everybody else on the road and that your driving brings the ultimate shame on Our Lord.
Our local odd-job man puts an icthus on his flyers, which no doubt is meant to suggest that he’s a Good and Honest Man and probably quite handly in a humble kind of way. Sadly, we haven’t needed to try him out.
I found it quite amusing to scroll down this cartoon and, at the bottom, read “Are You a Mormon Convert?
Make a difference and share your conversion story with others.”
Obviously I’m not the only one who sees a fish symbol and is tempted to convert to the mormonic religion.
Question: if I was to manufacture some icthus shaped boxer shorts – as the fourth gentleman appears to be modelling – would there be a market for them?
Or is he a new kind of superhero? Icthusman.
no i think it’s an oversized belt buckle, that is obviously so large that it has to be held up in order to stop it from pulling the trousers down.
Sorry Dave poking fun at you wonderful cartoons, I’m just not sure where I fit in as i have an icthus earing in at the moment?
David Keen says:
The last incarnation would work really well on one of those death slide things. Perhaps Ichthusman could get caught in a dissolving cable car and use his fish to abseil to safety down the wires.
I’m sure theres a decent idea for a new surreal Christian website being thought up here..
I had a “fish badge” made for my first car (15 years ago). The car was so old I decided to go over the top with the badge which was the fill width of the rear window.
Hmm, am I the only one that saw the last one as a Bishop’s Mitre?
In a way I am quite pleased that my dubious artwork allows room for all these different interpretations of the pictures. It really would be less fun for everyone if my drawings looked like the things they were intended to look like.
Clare, no your not the only one that thought that, i thought that was where the cartoon was going, it’s starts with a lapel badge and then one day you wake up to find your a bishop!
Simo, having considerd the matter I think your icthus earring might place you on a parallel track which leads to you being a slightly alternative trendy bishop.
Going off at a slight tangent here, if there was a Christian Olympics, you could have the table tennis competitors using Ichthus-shaped bats …
Holy topspin, Batman!
(Sorry – it is Friday …)
I thought the desktop ornament would make a very good saucepan stand!
And yes, I thought it mighta looked like a bishop’s mitre! (apologies for terrible pun)
