    Moses pointing out God’s typo and God getting pissed and sending two jolts of lightning into Moses’ head. Now whose enlightened ?

    Moses realising his ten commandos are getting impatient, while he wonders how to swallow those tablets.

    @Dogsniff: No, they are not whiskers. What Moses has going is a prototype hair do for Dagwood Bumstead.

    When Moses descended from Sinai the second time, ‘the skin of his face was radiant.’The Hebrew word meaning to be radiant or cast a glow which is used in the Biblical passage is “karan.” When Jerome’s Vulgate, the Catholic Church’s Latin translation intended to be the definitive interpretation of the Bible, was composed in the 5th century CE, Jerome took the verb “karan” to be a literal form of the noun “keren” which means “a horn”.

    In Spanish iconography those are known as “potencias” (powers), meaning the divine energy of God’s contact comes pouring out. You see them on a lot of images of Christ and other saints in the processions. In this particular instance, it does make him look a bit of a “cornudo”, though.

    @corzak: a literal form of the noun “keren” which means “a horn”..When Moses came down from the mount he was so horny you could see it in his face.

    Click-to-enlarge image available from here or Mr. Melcher’s blog entry.Moses (click link for his Wikipedia page, Jewish Encyclopedia entry, layman’s version) isn’t, as far as I can tell, described online by its current-location (Google translation). Earlier comments have already described it. A NOVA episode examined the story. The artist’s Wikipedia page and collection (many more under Subcategories at each level).Second of the 4 works by this artist, that have, so far, appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog, to also appear here.

    Minus 2 points for spelling. You left off the ‘tittle’, changes the whole meaning. ~

    Trust me, Doctor Toon! I was looking looking up the meanings of ‘jot and tittle’ during that 21 minute interlude. You beat me by 22 minutes. At least it wasn’t .0225th of a second for the Gold like in swimming last week.

    “It says we need an Allen wrench. Who’s got the Allen wrench? What do you mean ‘We melted it down’? Goddammit, it wasn’t even gold! Screw it. If you think I’m schlepping back up there just to ask for another Allen wrench, you’re out of your goddam minds…”

    @Fritzoid: …and coming down the mount after 40 sleepless days and nights with 3 heavy tablets he was startled and dropped and broke one of the tablets when a bush next to the path brush into flames. “Oy vey! I knew I should have brought a backpack. Oh well, they will accept 10 does & don’ts rather than 15 .”

    @ Dogsniff: I like your avatar just fine. As Frank once said: "I think it’s really tragic when people get serious about stuff. It’s such an absurdity to take anything really seriously … I make an honest attempt not to take anything seriously: I worked that attitude out about the time I was eighteen, I mean, what does it all mean when you get right down to it, what’s the story here? Being alive is so weird. "

    It seems beneath your wittiness. So, without over-analyzing why exactly, the “wealsel” shaver strikes me as a puzzling choice.

    I have always loved that album cover, even more than I love Zappa himself. Probably my favorite ‘non-porno’ cover ever.I think its appropriate that my favorite commenter would use my favorite album cover as an avatar.

    @all posters here: corzak refrains from commenting here because he HATESmy avatar for some strange reason. Anyone else have a problem with the Frank Zappa “Wealsels Ripped My Flesh” album cover? I’m curious.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Love Zappa, love the album, like your avatar and your sense of humor. Just don’t eat the yellow snow !

    One of the first printed KJVs said, “Thou shalt commit adultery.” It became known as the “Cursed Bible” and as “Satan’s Bible.” It was just a typo, naturally.
