OH MY! Now that is seriously woke!

There are a surprising number of short movies available on the internet that easily pass the Bechdel Test. I never realised that being a feminist was so sexy.

I've watched quite a number of them, in order to strengthen my sense of solidarity.

I'm as surprised as you by this startling turn of events.

Oh, and they consider their concerts to be black magic masses.  Sort of like the satanist equivalent of Christian worship music.

This is so far off-topic for the thread it's making my head hurt, but you have literally no idea what you're talking about.

Quite possibly, in which case my apologies to anyone who I have offended here.  Possibly a while since I've thought of the Nephilim.  I have to be honest I did actually enjoy their music back in the day and didn't even think about some of the more bizarre allegations that some head-bangers throw around about them.

As for my own religious predilections which have been alluded to on this thread, I get (and actually agree with to a large part) the problems that many folks around here have with Christian Fundamentalism (or any religious fundamentalism for that matter).  Since it's the sort of thing that does tend to generate heated exchanges I generally steer clear of those sorts of discussions.

What I will say as far as other religious views is concerned is this:  each to their own.  It's a bit like the old joke about the Anglican Priest who dies and expects to be met at the pearly gates only to find himself being greeted by Old Nick.  When he asks why he is there as he has always been a good Christian and done everything by the book he is told, "Sorry, the Jews (pick your faith) were right."  So in some respects I feel that Blaise Pascal had a bit of a point with his gambit about faith.

So once again, my apologies for my error, confusion, ignorance or just downright stupidity.

... and back to the usual service.

When I was still just a trainee youngling, I thought "porn" must be some kind of foodstuff or crop.

Of course I eventually learned the truth, and thus began my lifelong aversion to the Jolly Green Giant.

You will now be forced to write a short strip showing the REAL Jolly Green Giant and his positive, wholesome influence on your life.

Finally, we're back on topic, as we discuss how the Jolly Green Giant is typical of the sort of tropes we've seen for years about vegetable-based vertically-blessed humanoids of an undefined disposition.
