NORTH OF CINCINNATI WAY a statue of Jesus in water up to his ribcage, arms uplifted to heaven in supplication, called variously Touchdown Jesus and Big Butter Jesus.
During a big thunderstorm a couple nights ago, it was struck by lightning…
Indeed, Dolly. Indeed.
…struck by lightning and burned to the ground. Made out of papier mache or some such, I suppose.
While comedy stylist Heywood Banks announced on the Bob and Tom show Wednesday that he’d added a new verse to his song, “Big Butter Jesus,” I think that the official winnah of the Innertubes is our very own Og, the Neanderpundit, who dashed off this bit of doggerel in comments to Tam’s post on the subject.
I don’t care if it rains or freezes
long as I got a flaming Jesus
Sitting in a pond in my frontyard
Jesus’ daddy he sent lightning
all the folks thought it was frightening
Seems salvation might be kinda hard.
And … Hee.
Gotcher viral right here.
Dolly, there is something obscene about that gesture when you make it.
Gee! Ya think?
