You put that "pervy slang" disclaimer in there just for me, didn't you?
And also, I would bet money that Jesus was a cocktail peanut guy.

so what did you decide Jesus liked for a snack?
julia posted at 2:39 PM, January 26, 2006
I'm convinced Jesus liked hot'n'spicy pork rinds and a cold can of Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Jesus liked figs. Its right there in Luke.

Yeah, but I want to know what the Son of God eats for elevenses...
i am so very ill, would TFBYM lend you to me for fifteen minutes to make me hot cocoa? I would be forever in her debt -- and yours, of course.

Jujube, I told NOS I'd look it up.
I gotta go with SL on the fig thing. Mind you, it's not that 1st Century Palestine was the whirling vortex of snackitude that is, say, your average Circle K, so the choices were pretty limited.
I think grilled fish were also big with Him, but that's not really a snack.

You realize there IS a difference between hot cocoa and hot chocolate. I'm cool with either, but I wanna make sure you're clear on your choices.
P.S. Yes, Badge...for you and Poppy both.

OK, so I'm at work and it's my slow season (which is why I can take 2 weeks off next month to head to Florida and come back to 2 new emails and zero voicemails, like I did last year), so I put "biblical snacks" into Google...and decided that what resulted was blog worthy. So you'll have to go here
to read it.
Thanks for the inspiration, Joke!

I didn't notice anything perverted. Unless it was the creamy pink mounds of strawberry frogurt.

I'm thinking Jesus may not have been all down with that whole Jell-O thing.
jujube posted at 8:27 PM, January 26, 2006
On the contrary, I think He would have loved it. But then again, my view is strongly influenced by Christopher Moore's _Lamb_ (waving to Badger).

So .45 or 9mm?

WHAT AM I? WOOD?
no chocolate/cocoa/pervy slang?
not even a hint of cheese?
blackbird posted at 8:57 PM, January 26, 2006
I don't think it's figs...

Look! A seagull!
Is Jell-o kosher? Did the Lord keep kosher? Do you learn this stuff in church? Do you see how being raised by hippies has ruined my chances of ever winning Trivial Pursuit, New Testament Version?

jello is so NOT kosher - hello, gelatin, people! (there's a soylent green joke here somewhere but i am far too congested to conjure it up.)
i like either, joke, and thx to john thorne am very aware of the differences - i think i made the food equivalent of freudian slippage, am needing comfort foods. hot cocoa = comfort; hot chocolate = luxury.

Walther PPK 380/S. I like to hit at what I aim.
I was unaware of your propensity to assume pervy slang. Consider yourself--albeit belatedly--lumped in with the, er, lumpenpervs. I also think "dates" is a bit too "1001 Nights" and not so much New Testament, but I am open to correction.
Not only am I pretty sure Christ would not be all down with the Jell-O thing, but had the opportunity arisen, He may have also rebuked guar and carageenan while He was at it. That's just a supposition though.
jujube posted at 11:08 AM, January 27, 2006
Joke, He wouldn't EAT those horrible jello thing. But He would find them amusing.

You can tell a lot 'bout a guy by the size of his pistol.
Joke posted at 3:59 PM, January 27, 2006
Jujube, you mean like sending all those horrible--past, present & future--Jell-O desserts over a cliff like the Gadarene swine?
Mr B., I agree. You can tell what sort of compensatory skills he needn't develop.
