Ho ho ho! It’s that time of year again. Here’s JHK’s holiday classic: A Christmas Orphan.

11-year-old Jeff Greenaway hears his mom and dad argue one night after an office Christmas party. He infers from their garbled squabble that he is an orphan, found in a willow basket on the welcome mat outside their New York apartment. Thinking now that his parents are imposters, he steals away to Grand Central Station and buys a train ticket to Drakesville, Vermont, where he intends to start life all over again.

    A reference to what happened to Jesus on the cross?

    • SunnyJohn45 June 5, 2017 at 8:25 am #

      But it didn’t save Jesus’s life.

      • Peter VE June 5, 2017 at 9:15 am #

        The myth developed by Paul is that Jesus earned eternal Life at the right hand of the Father.

        I say that he lives on in the message which we attribute to his teachings. Whether that message is Matthew 7:12 (Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.), or Matthew 10:34 (Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.) I leave to you to choose.

        Slightly off subject, John B. McLemore lives yet in our memories, even if we never met him in body.

        It is clearly a reference is to John 19, John 3:16 and John 3:36.

        It should be interpreted as:
        “The body of Christ was pierced to grant me eternal life.”

        It is not understandable by non-Christians, so for a public declaration, it is too clever by half.

        • EvyCory June 9, 2017 at 2:06 pm #

          That would be the body of Christ and not his followers. First it’s dick rings and then its cock fights…

        • Phutatorius June 30, 2017 at 9:11 am #

          You don’t give us non-Christians enough credit for insight into what we don’t accept. Many of us grew up on this stuff and made the “mistake” of reading and criticizing the scriptures for ourselves. However, it does appear that Mr. K missed the point here.

    This has to be someones, ill conceived, attempt to be “hip” to the kids these days

  3. pueblocolorado June 5, 2017 at 2:49 pm #

    It worked for John B. or rather, for a period of time. To all the tortured souls…..may you seek and find solace. For those who aren’t, help someone who is

    In abstinence of a ‘building’ here is the one:

    This sorry masturbation’s photo was was on the margin, right next to Wright’s ‘Falling Water’ in the magazine article dedicated to the iconic building and architect’s 150th birthday.

    Which is the eyesore…the medium or the message? They both seem to qualify.
