    Just to clarify, the cartoon isn't controversial in the least. It's just lighthearted (albeit, tired...) religious humor.

    reminds me of a conversation that I once had with a group of friends- if god had a penis would it be huge, medium or small?

    you'd think if he could choose any size he'd be huge, but then he'd probably be an asshole that no one wanted to worship

    if he was small he'd probably be a lot nicer, but suffer self esteem issues (especially since you always see him wearing a dress... )

    we concluded god must have an average sized penis

    I guess only the "virgin" Mary knows how big the dick that God pounded her with really is.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    The concept has a lot of possibilities to be funny to various audiences. Talk about big shoes to fill compared to your wifes ex.

    On the other hand bad mouthing God and religious figures blatantly is rather off-putting, vulgar and boring. It is like many of the racist joke of old...especially at this time of the season. It doesnt get many points for the shock value because blasphemy is so common nowadays. I find this one rather crude/lame but one might get a lot yucks for those really into their Atheism or those who hate Christians. It all depends on the audience.
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    This joke actually seems kind of... conventional to me in a way. I don't think it's particularly offensive or funny. The light-hearted profaning of holy figures and jabs about the inadequacy of men's sexual performance have been common comedic conventions for some time. This isn't that much more offensive than you find in many humorous greeting cards. It's just kind of... meh.

    The concept is vaguely funny but the delivery... not so much.

    I could see most people laughing at this, actually. I'm picturing some of my annoying coworkers or my mom laughing at this endlessly while I stare at them with the exact same expression in my avatar.

    it's a bit too obvious, obviously.

    I got a slight chuckle out of it.

    Slightly funny, yes.

    It's funny that you chose this picture to do this "experiment," that's the funny part.
