    This was long before calculators, and the Chinese were keeping the abacus to themselves.

    Dad! What did I do to warrant all the family (including their dog) dropping in unannounced and wanting to stay for the weekend?

    lets see . . . 13 bagels at 2 shekels each, 12% would be what? 3 1/4 skekels . . . but service was ok, so maybe 15% . . . which would be, 3.9? No wait, 4.1, hey! who ordered the ham sandwich?

    Looks like one of those times in the NT when He said, “How long am I to be with you?” Which being translated means, “Get with the programme, guys!”

    Jesus starts to regret healing people.“Can you check my back?”

    “Can you check my arm?”

    “Can you check MY arm?”

    “Can you check my leg?”

    “Can you examine my daughters?”

    “Can you examine my dog?”

    For those interested, I added a comment to yesterday’s strip.This poster (mouse over the image to see more detail, click to zoom what’s in the window at that point, has transparent watermark) is from a larger painting (click image to enlarge). You can also mouse over or zoom in on the painting, and 3 other posters from it, starting from here, to see details (again with fairly transparent watermarks, but better quality image, most smaller than the enlarged painting). Enlargement also available from here. So far, 2 works by this artist, AKA Paolo Caliari, have appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog.

    Re anachronisms in Renaissance paintings: There’s a Monty Python sketch (not from the show; I think they did it in “Live from the Hollywood Bowl”) where the Pope has some “issues” with Michaelangelo’s The Last Supper: He included kangaroos, too many disciples, and three Christs (the fat one in the middle balances out the two skinny ones). Michaelangelo’s idea is to change the title to The Penultimate Supper or The Last Supper But One. I mean, there had to have been one, right? The punchline is Michaelangelo storming off saying “You don’t want an Artist, mate, you want a bleedin’ photographer.”
