You ask a very good question. What would you say is the answer?

Why do you think Jesus looks so sad? What do you think would make him smile?

Don't forget, unlike your profile photo, Jesus never did a self-portrait. It's other people that make him look miserable.

that's a VERY good point, Cosmo.

This completely reminds me of a Jesus statue that I've always wanted to take a photo of outside a church in town. He's perfectly positioned in front of a parking space and when vacant, it totally looks like he's guiding you in.

Grrrrrreat blog btw!

Agreed. Bloody miserable. And I bet he'd agree. Went looking to find Him, and he's out there, but so are a whole bunch of fruit lubes too. Anyway, here's one from site that's not too crazy looking: http://images.google.ie/imgres?imgurl=http://www.whitedovecares.org/LaughingJesus.jpg/LaughingJesus-full%3Binit:.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.whitedovecares.org/&h=543&w=447&sz=85&hl=en&start=25&sig2=VVzr4_GOVuJE42J9dSES-A&um=1&tbnid=k_rjgeaXnwII7M:&tbnh=132&tbnw=109&ei=AwWqSNnTAZSo0gSY0cG9Dw&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dlaughing%2BJesus%26start%3D20%26ndsp%3D20%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26sa%3DN
