    Nice bee-stung lips variation on the Caucasian Jesus. The gapping hand wound is always a crowd-pleaser.

    It’s strange, when I put the post together it was Ukulele Jesus on top, Ukulele Satan next, and Topless Ukulele Lady last. But something intervened to flip the last two. Maybe WordPress wanted to make it a narrative in which Ukulele Jesus meets the Topless Ukulele Lady and she leads Him astray, with hellish results.

    That could be the basis for a new sect of Christianity, in which the ukulele in the context of a bosom is the ultimate evil. Playing the ukulele in the context of a bosom is the ultimate sin. Listening to a ukulele while looking at a bosom is considered wicked. But how can mere mortals resist when Jesus Himself gave in to the temptation?

    Funny, I was trying to decide what word to use, and then I remembered the “bosom of Abraham” song. I always thought that was a humorous one.

    Maybe that sect already exists, and controls WordPress. That would explain why the pix were reordered.

    One of the reasons I love the ukulele is its inherent modesty. An immodest religion made up of people who exaggerate their own importance and are afraid of admitting to uncertainty might see a deadly threat in the ukulele. Here’a David Newland’s “ukulele sermon,” “My flea has gods,” about the spirituality of the uke:

    Nice! I like Newland’s philosophy.
