The Ten Commandments

The Ten Commandments are a bit weird. I've posted them below just for reference. If I was making a list of 10 rules for humanity to live by I'd make sure each one was gold. The first three are all bout how insecure he apparently is. The 4th is a day off which is nice. Nice to see we have a holiday in there. Interestingly the commandments weren't issued immediately, so presumably before moses people were just killing and coveting and taking the lord's name all over the place.

You shall have no other gods before me.
You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.
You shall not murder.
You shall not commit adultery.
You shall not steal.
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor's.

Captain America

When Captain America throws his mighty shield! All those who oppose his will will surely yield! That's the words to the old Captain America cartoon theme tune which basically says all must yield to the will of this super soldier or die (kinda). It sounds a bit harsh but yield rhymes with shield so all's good. I always found it weird that Captain america is a drugged up super soldier, it wasn't an accident, he was pumped up with the comics version of super steroids.... it reads more like a super villain origin than a hero. So the only way to grow up big and tough like Hulk Hogan and Captain America is to eat your vitamins and take yer steroids kids!

Grammar Nazis

Today's comic is Grammar Nazis! It's got nazis in it so I know it will get more hits than some of my other posts. If I was smart I'd do all of my comics about nazis. There seems to be some sort of weird fascination with Hitler and nazis we just can't stop talking about them or making comics or TV programs about them or ending arguments on the internet by calling the other person a nazi. In computer games and movies  there are 3 types of people that you can just mow down and blow up and no one bats an eye lid. Zombies, Aliens and Nazis. These aren't real people like you or I so you can shoot first and ask questions later.

Happy May Day! Today'c comic is a locust so you can just go ahead and enjoy that in all it's glory.
The Prince of Egypt was on TV this morning (the dreamworks cartoon about moses not the actual 'prince' of Egypt). It's actually quite good and not preachy at all. The reason i bring this up is because locusts remind me of 2 things. A Bug's Life and biblical plagues. Here's a link to some explainations for the 10 plagues of egypt. Interesting stuff.
