    Xane: I posted this on twitter but we’re having webserver issues over on webcomicsonline.com. Once they are resolved I will forward the Domain back.

    Don: LOL!!! What about the other half?

    I’m with Don, instead saying something like “hot mangoes” doesn’t insult anyone

    Bah, you twits and your mangled sentence broadcaster! ;)

    Actually, I really should get one. If I had a smart phone I would, but I don’t even text!

    Don, it’s “offend” not insult. Taking your lord’s name in vain is not an insult to you. It’s HIS name.

    If I wanted to insult you as a Christian, I’d say that you’re a heathen polytheist trying to use the “holy trinity” to lawyer your way around the first commandment. The entire concept of Jesus as God is a blatant violation of “thou shalt have no other gods before me,” and you’re going to Hell.

    That would be insulting.

    Just saying “hot Jesus” would merely be offensive.

    well mike im not offended by the dialog in todays comic. technically you’ve had worse. but in todays day and age its kinda silly to get offended by ‘Hot Jesus’ its very mild compared to what people say every day. FYI this current arc is funny. Buckley and his shenanigans

    I’m constantly amused at how quickly a word or phrase can raise someone’s hackles. It’s a comic strip not a diatribe on religious opinion. It’s not more or less offensive than “Holy Cow” is to a person of Hindu faith. It’s just a word. Don’t give it any power.

    @NightGaunt: But even athiests agree that words have power, otherwise the athiests would be protesting political correctness, semiotics, and all the other things academics use to convince us our unthinking, unfeeling statements are making it impossible for [name of minority group] to feel good about themselves or get a fair shake. And, of course, we offend everyone whose purpose in life is to get offended on the behalf of others.

    What is all the controversy about!? It’s Jesus (Pronounced Hay-Soos). He’s referring to a hot immigrant worker he knew who’s lunch smelled the same on those hot July days in the Watermelon patches. :) See no controversy, you just needed the proper pronunciation.

    @GregBulmash

    excellent point

    An equally valid interpretation is that there are many gods, but a good Jew holds the God of Moses and Abraham above all other gods.

    Personally, I’m more offended on the “smells like dead monkeys” bit. Dead monkeys do not smell any worse than other dead animals, and singling them out like that is, therefore, racist.
    Knowing that, it comes as no surprise that you decided to attack the colored cheese as well.

    Shame on you, Mr. Witmer. Shaaaame.

    I’m just waiting on the recipe.

    I apologize to cheese minorities everywhere.

    So, I assume Don was making a joke.

    If not {

    1.America has become the land of the obsessively offended. There is no human nor constitutional right towards the expectation of being emotionally comfortable at all times in all circumstances. To expect so is childish and unreasonable. Life is offensive at times and this causes us to examine ourselves internally, sometimes (perhaps the majority) revealing something lacking within ourselves and not within the offending person. It’s a sign of insecurity.

    2.Tucker is, by definition, an offensive character. This is the soul of his personality. To “Beaverize” his language removes his role in the strip. Might as well make Rocky a pacifist.

    3.People are rude. They do not dance around your sensitivities. Get over yourself ;-)
