Don't Eat With Your Mouth Full

Where can we live but days?

A Religious Mystery
My Japanese teacher showed me a volume of Seinto Oniisan, a manga in which Jesus and the Buddha share a flat in Tokyo. It naturally reminded me of Jesus and Mo, in which Jesus and Mohammed (or his body double) share a flat in Britain. The latter began in November 2005, the former some time in 2006. Coincidence? I've no idea.

I suppose, being omnipresent but incarnate, Jesus may be able to justify these multiple pieds-à-terre, but do his roommates know about his complicated lifestyle?

Heh -- hadn't heard of Jesus and Mo. I can see why you thought of it, though.

Saint Big Brothers is hysterically funny, and I say that even missing at least half the jokes about Buddha. One of the few gag manga I didn't drop after a few chapters. At least one chapter does discuss the question of how many incarnations Jesus has.

This so makes me think of Edika´s "God´s Club", where all the grand world religion deities gather for a very wet party with girls and booze et al. only Jesus does the party-killer by sitting in a corner whining about how nobody wants to play with him. Oh, and of course, South Park with that no less complicated liasion between Saddam and the Devil. I like, in the Edika (pretty sure it was him though it´s ages ago and may have been by someone else) version, how the neighbours finally complain and make the gods sigh: "oh, it´s those humans again..."
