Activity Time! How Many Hairdresser Clichés Can You Spot?



I never thought it would be possible for Agape Press to get awesomer, but their new "Cartoon of the Week" feature accomplishes this seemingly impossible task. It's been going for a month or so now, but I've been patiently waiting for just the right cartoon to feature here, and boy, did they ever deliver today (see above)!

My favorite part is the necklace the evil, Druid-like priest is wearing. I mean, tsk, that peace shit is so totally gay and anti-Christian. Ew.

The cartoons are provided by the almost impossibly superfantastic jcuministries.com, a site which offers endless opportunities for contemplation and laughing 'n' pointing. Here's my favorite juxtaposition from their home page:



Jesus died for your zither, bitch.

UPDATE for all the twatwaffles who feel they must take me down a few pegs by informing me that the above is an Autoharp™, not a zither: yes, it is indeed an Autoharp™... a type of zither. Now please get a life.

OMG it plays music! Wheee!

And what's with the media guy with the black cowboy hat? Is it Johnny Cash University?

Didn't you hear that the peace sign is satanic? That's from the brouhaha in Colorado about the woman who put a peace sign wreath on her house only have the homeowners assocation tell her to take it down.

In its own weird way, the Hairdresser Wedding Cartoon is actually sort of sweet, what with the little hearts over their respective heads (they're REALLY in love, you see), and the yin/yang symbols nicely contrasting with the pretty little stars and peace symbol.

Your screen capture from jcuministries is something else, however. I think I'm going to be committing the phrase "Jesus died for your zither, bitch" to memory.

Princess,

Am morally lost in the above Kondi
dialogue...why? Maybe, because, there's no political/international angle ... but then why -- why in the sense of an alternative -- should there be anything but surface fun/irony in reaction to the current Bush regime, except that Kondi & other war criminals (ourselves included, as persons who allowed it to happen) are responsible (and aren't we?) for thousands -- hundred of thousands -- deaths in Iraq.

Gee, isn't it fun worrying about Kondi's hairdo & shoes when thousands -- Iraqis and Americans -- die in Iraq?

Come on, let's get serious and go shopping.

It's great to be an American and go to Walmart's on "Black Friday."

"My Country, 'tis of thee.."

From the look of the picture, it appears that Jesus died your autoharp, which, upon review, seems like a lateral move

From Wikipedia, Mr. Smartypants: The Autoharp is a musical string instrument having a series of chord bars attached to dampers which, when depressed, mute all the strings other than those that form the desired chord. Despite its name, the autoharp is not a harp at all, but a zither. The generic term for the instrument is chorded zither.

From the Reverend "I love KIDS!" official bio:

My Mom had threatened: "If he comes home from college with a beard, I'll kill him."

Lots of mixed messages here for a young tyke growing hair on his gonads during the sixties.
Big White Christ On A Cross had a beard, so did all those wise men and the asses they rode in on, right? I mean a beard is a sign that your hair has grown down through your head (it also works with hair plugs) and wrapped itself around your heart squeezing until you start screaming "JESUS JESUS JESUS" and you are saved.

Mothers. Tsk tsk tsk.

Wow- this perked up my day better than a triple venti. Jesus died for your zither, bitch.

This kind of talk makes my zither strings quiver.

That's an autoharp, not a zither.

On the cartoon, I don't know ANY gay men who wear kitten heels. Only large women in K-mart mumus and overly tall starlets wear kitten heels.

To the anonymous person after me...see PSP's comments about what exatly it is!

Further reflection on the cartoon has me thinking it looks more like two aging straight men hippy types from way back when... The liberal, pardon the pun use of stars, yin/yang symbols, the dreaded PEACE sign... I think our friends at the so called Christian website have their symbols and imagery mixed up.

Nah-- hippies, all free-love types, peaceful, organic yin/yangers are potentially gay arent't they???!!!

...Oh, sorry. I've been dancing to the uptempo, up with people, up yours strains of the JCU theme music.

I rejoice in the challenges of this life... so much to learn, like what kitten heels are.

Back to dancing.

Can we talk about "Twatwaffles" for a minute? I've never heard that term till this weekend and now I read it four times in the last two days. Is there a campaign for twatwaffles going on?

Princess Sparkle Pony said...

Yes, it's obviously a recent language virus. I saw it getting bandied about on Gawker, and that led to seeing it everywhere. It spread really, really fast. It's a delightful combination of three syllables, isn't it?

guru-On-A-Soap-Box said...

I shall NEVER feel the same about female genitalia or waffles again. But an entirely new batch of 'syrup' and 'what rising agent do you use when you bake' jokes is about to happen.

Carmen Sutra said...

The twatwafffle virus is one I plan to catch. Love it.

But in all fairness to twatwaffles, Princess, zithers are European and therefore Satanic, whereas Autoharps are both American AND trademarked, and therefore beloved by Jesus. So there is that difference.

Is there a webbie award for creepiest fucking rollovers? Bleeding jeebus magically turns into baseball cap jeebus - just wierd. What is that supposed to represent? And a cartoon of a little girl rolls over into the freak that set the website up. He's wearing some sort of white karate outfit and holding a candle. Mark Foley + Sadist pedophile phantasy? I emitted scared sounds: Eeek! In the guy's bio he admitted to past hallucinogenic drug use. Perhaps those 'flashback' episodes we were warned about in health class are real.

Looks like the Agape people had one of their kids draw that cartoon. But I do like the floral suit.

Mrs. Tarquin Biscuitbarrel said...

As the happy owner/operator of a twat, I find the expression "twatwaffle" funny, but it also makes me wince. Ever burned just your FINGER on a waffle iron?

Also, whoever Agape's using as a cartoonist is most cordially invited to visit my neighborhood. I have a slew of gay neighbors, and they are indistinguishable from the straight ones. Except some of the gay guys are better dressed and their properties more neatly groomed than the straight folks. By "the straight folks," I admit, I mean "my household."
