OMG. That's terrible.

Loved it.

I always use Easter weekend to tidy up my house just in case Jesus comes to visit.

Glad you liked it. I shared it with my cousin, and he got offended. We've now spent a good deal of time arguing about whether or not Jesus was a zombie (with me laughing all the while, and he, presumably, getting more and more upset). I won't go into details, as I'm probably pushing the guidelines to their limit just by posting the comic, but I thought I should share it.

Well he does kind of fit the definition of zombie.

Speaking of zombies, I saw an article today where Woody Harrelson assaulted a paparazzi because he thought he was a zombie.

"With my daughter at the airport I was startled by a paparazzo who I quite understandably mistook for a zombie."

You don't think he would smack Jesus if he showed up at his door do you?

Maybe Woody could start a tradition like #3 in Ivans list:

3. On Maundy Thursday in Verges, in Spain, a traditional “death dance” is performed which involves a parade down the streets of the medieval town. Everyone involved is dressed in costumes and the procession ends with frightening skeletons carrying boxes of ashes. The scary dance begins at midnight and continues for three hours into the early morning.

Sounds like Zombie Jesus Day to me.

8. In Latvia, the traditional Easter game played by the children is similar to conkers – but with eggs. Players pair off and use hard-boiled coloured eggs joined together with string. Competitors bang the ends of the eggs together until one player’s egg breaks. The winner is the player with the stronger egg. It sounds a bit messy to us.

It's much more fun with raw eggs

Never heard about the Polish tradition described on the mirror site, will have to tell Marzena about it.

Is your moustache grey?

Not yet. Partially yes. But then my head turns grey, perhaps that's a sign I should stop helping.

Oh yes, I would say the situation is critical! Be sure to tell your wife that we can back you up on this.
