Thanks to this week’s guest writer, Ann Widdecombe, who faces the “sort of atheism” that “wouldn’t once have been said”.
Patreon news. All the clerihews are written and delivered. At least I think so. There were 80 of them altogether. If you pledged $3 or more per month and haven’t yet received your personally composed clerihew, please let me know and I’ll write one for you straight away.
Why do we even bishop?
To those patrons patiently awaiting their signed prints and raffle prizes, please hang in there! You haven’t been forgotten – it’s just taking some time to get things right. Plus I’m still pounding out the clerihews – though there are only about eleven left to go at the time of writing.
(If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can read all about it here.)
Or, to give it its correct spelling, cornby fash.
Patrons who have pledged $2 or more per month can now download any or all of the PDFs of the J&M books. Check your Patreon messages for the links. Thank you!
An old one today, from 2007.
Did you see Darwin Harmless’s great song, “Don’t be Divisive”, inspired by last week’s strip? Watch it here on YouTube. Warning: it’s catchy.
For those patrons still awaiting their clerihews, signed prints, and other rewards – I haven’t forgotten you! Clerihews are taking up quite a bit of time, but I’m about 75% of the way through them now. Once they’re done, I’ll concentrate on getting all the other rewards out. Thank you for your patience.
UPDATE: I forgot to mention that this month’s raffle winner is another Australian! Congrats, James, you win a signed copy of Born Again.
It’s been a while since the boys sang a song.
A thought: if you’re too ashamed of your beliefs to admit to them in public, you might want to reconsider whether or not they’re worth holding on to.
For just one example of the waffle and dodge approach, this clip from 1.10.
The winner of this month’s raffle prize is Sonya from Australia. She gets a signed, personalised copy of Folie à Dieu. Congratulations, Sonya! Next month’s prize is a signed, personalised copy of Born Again. Go to the Patreon page if you want to join the fun. The first batch of clerihews went out to patrons last night – only another fifty to write!
Thank you to all who chose to become a Patron of the Blasphemous Arts by pledging a monthly sum in support of J&M. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can read the rationale behind this thing here.
Basically, if you feel that each J&M strip gives you 25¢ worth of pleasure, you can now pledge $1 per month to show your appreciation. If you estimate the monetary value of your pleasure to be higher than that, you can pledge more. Or less. Or nothing at all! It’s entirely voluntary, and you can cancel at any time.
This month’s prize for those in the monthly raffle (patrons pledging $4pm or more) is a signed, personalised copy of Folie á Dieu. At the time of posting this, there are 29 names in the hat. The winner will be announced next week.
This isn’t satire, it’s reportage. Thanks to guest script writer Giuseppe Ferrari.
Jesus & Mo now has a Patreon account, which allows regular readers to support its continued production by pledging a small amount each month. It’s entirely voluntary, and can be cancelled at any time. There is also a system of incremental rewards, depending on how much you pledge.
Jesus & Mo has been available free since 2005, and will always be free. But now, if you enjoy it and you think that each strip is worth, say, 25 cents’ worth of pleasure to you, you can pledge a dollar a month and have the satisfaction of knowing you’re playing a part in keeping this little corner of blasphemous satire active in the world. If you think it’s worth more than that, you’ll get a bit more. Here – have a look.
Thanks for your support and thanks, above all, for reading Jesus & Mo.
