The Return of Tigger-Jesus



This is a post I did for Easter last year, but is worth repeating.  In fact, it may become my Easter tradition....


This post was inspired by a conversation between my girlfriend and I. We moved into her grandmother's house when we moved to Idaho, and had to pack up grandma's things before we could unpack our stuff. One thing grandma had more than anything else: Jesus. es.

Jesus figurines, Jesus pictures, Jesus everywhere.

And from a smart-ass perspective, I was amused because no two Jesuses looked the same. It was like Jesus snowflakes.

When we finished packing, we had a "Big ol' box-o-Jesus." Reminiscing about that box, the conversation that inspired this epic post began.

Me: "So what exactly is the proper plural of Jesus? Jesuses? Jesuseseses? Jesusii?"
Her: "I'm not sure. But it really doesn't matter. The wonderful thing about Jesus is he's the only one."

And then, synapses in my brain began to fire rapidly.

This was the result:

Meet Tigger-Jesus
Yes, like Tigger, Jesus is the only one.

Once the avalanche started, I couldn't stop. I was singing: 

"oh the wonderful thing about Jesuses, 
is Jesuses are wonderful things. 
 Their tops are made of salvation, 
their bottoms are made out of miracles."

And so on.

Images of Jesus bouncing on Pooh and Rabbit came flooding into my mind.

This picture didn't look right before, and it doesn't look any better now...

This is when I say no, I'm not atheist. I just have a beliefs system that doesn't fit into any church's moldings, and as you can see, I have a very warped sense of humor with very little limitations.

Anyway, happy Easter. For me, it will never be the same.
Please Share it! :)

The expression on Tigger-Jesus's and Rabbit's face make it look like a romantic scene.
This is the by-product of what happens when Christopher Robin hits puberty and starts getting...curious.

Lol nice!

Pure Sacriledge. May the lord forgive you for this blasphemy.
BTB, I see the picture but still muddled about chocolate eggs laid by bunny. Instead of Tigger-Jesus, M&M Jesus would explain those colorful eggs :)

I know every comedian alive has already said this, but I believe God has a sense of humor. Just look at the platypus....

This is all kinds of awesome. Happy Easter.

Chris Bird said...

Their bottoms are made out of miracles. Ha

I, for one, am horribly offended by this. Thou shalt not mock Tigger!

Well, We believe in Zombie Jesus Day! Plus my oldest child made it completely logical to call Jesus a Pimping Zombie.

See above. It made perfect sense and it reassures me that I am teaching my children the finer point of analytical religious thinking.

LOLZ. Very nice and when you determine the proper plural of Jesus, I'd love to know! :) Happy Easter, or Good Friday, or Passover.. Ugh, whatever! Happy weekend!! :))

Adsila said...

Happy Easter....your friend Pooh.

Sandra said...

I think Tigger-Jesus is way more appealing that Buddy Jesus anyway!

Stephanie said...

Ha! Irreverent, indeed. (fact: I don't really know how to spell irreverent)

Thanks for the youble link...I'm intrigued.

Lil Dreamer said...

I agree with Pickelope. That last picture strikes me as a bit sacrilegious as Jesus looks like he is about to date rape rabbit. Just saying.

Shockgrubz said...

I like the gung-ho-ness of TiggerJesus. Kinda balances out the moroseness of Eyore-Jesus.

Bart said...

i dont quite rememeber it...probably drank those brain cells away

G said...

I might make tigger-jesus into a badge for church tomorrow

Sonja said...

Oh thank you for this lil bit of blasphemy. Now I am going to have to strap a Jesus mask onto my bouncing Tigger and let him jump all around the house on Sunday!!! Have a Merry Easter!!!!

Mynx said...

This actually works for me. I could develop a whole new interest in Jesus if I can relate it all to Winnie the Pooh

THE SNEE said...

I remember this post and it's just as funny the second time. The idea of a new Easter tradition sits well, especially this one! I hope that you enjoyed the spring weekend!

CrazyTragicAlmostMagic said...

This is actually pretty funny. I believe the plural Is Jesuii.
