Replacement butter jesus less buttery

Worst exposure of the trip…. More info on original here…and the new one here.

You may remember that the original Butter Jesus went in a conflagration (that was not the end of the world). The good people have replaced the Butter Jesus with a less buttery version who is above the water (and not quite walking on it). No word on if there’s a new nickname in popular culture.

    Sam, you reminded me of the “Big Butter Jesus” song, but when I went to your former article, the link to the song was gone. “Oleo, Oh Lord!” indeed.

  2. Pooh says:

    Halleluia! The Wiki link (old) in the caption does have the link at the very bottom.

  3. Sammy says:

    Maybe they’re trying for the un-yellowed margarine look? This pose doesn’t induce the winter-Jesus frozen-gonads problem….

    Hee. Went to the old butter Jesus entry, saw b-flat, immediately thought about alligators, then saw that I had *commented* about alligators. Like the old Jeebus much better than the replacement.

  5. Sammy says:

    Makes it BJeebus? Love that! BTW, that must be the only b-flat in this blog….

    My god is bigger than your god…..

  7. Sammy says:

    And that church’s is pretty darned big!

  8. out of town friend says:

    I knew him as “Touchdown Jesus” ’cause when he threw his arms up, you knew you had scored!

  9. Sammy says:

    Yeah, the new one isn’t as dynamic….
