    If he didn’t walk…could have used the Remax balloon.

    Joe, I doubt that the point is to “make fun” of Passover Week, but that the advent of Passover combined with the rotten economy (and people actually walking away from mortgages) has just inspired this weird take on Moses. It’s irreverent, but still rather clever.

    Well, I like it, even though I’m sometimes the one standing in front of the congregation, reading this very story in the Easter vigil. Nothing wrong with a good religious joke.

    It only gets offending when jokes are used as anti-religious propaganda without real background information. I’m actively roman catholic and know well enough what’s going wrong in my church, I don’t need outsiders to point their fingers.

    But as I said, jokes like this one are always welcome.

    BTW, learning from the Bible, what do you do when an angel appears and tells you not to be afraid?


    There is not a single occurence like this in the Bible that doesn’ mean work or trouble or both!

    Ah, the famous parting of the In-the-red Sea. It may well be Passover, but they appear to be passing under…

    Actually, I’d say they were just passing through…

    Gripe all you want JAD. That’s the beauty of free speech. Which also covers jokes about religion…

    @ Jungverdorben

    Well said! I am not at all religious, actually I’m an atheist, but I always respect those who can laugh at themselves. That goes for any individual or group of people, not just the religious crowd. As long as jokes are tasteful and are not hateful go ahead and laugh at yourself!

    Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves for they shall never cease to be amused!

    I think it’s great and provocative. One word that has yet to be used this morning is “exodus,” in both applications.

    This is a more subtle cartoon than you might think–many people stuck with “upside down” mortgages (where the buyer has little/no equity and owes much more than the house is ever going to be worth) are starting to look at just walking away (also known as “strategic default”) as a path to freedom. This is starting to put some fear into the banking industry, to the point where they’re trying to tell people it’s somehow morally wrong to exercise the default clause in their mortgage contracts (of course, banks do this kind of thing all the time when they decide they don’t need a building; they just don’t want their customers doing it).
