Saint Goose And The Wailing Trees


Weird Mural #1
Originally uploaded by Other Andrew.


More of the mural-y goodness on the construction hoarding outside St Andrew's Cathedral. Prior to this there was a bunch of regular old fashioned quotes from the Bible or something, nowhere near as entertaining as this bizarre collection of oddness.

Clue me in Christians. Which book of the Bible has the wailing trees, the Holy Goose, a bush version of Cookie Monster and the giant singing sperms?

Hehe, giant singing sperms. But I must admit Andrew, that I walk past this mural every weekday on my way to work (from bus stop outside George Street cinema's down to Town Hall Station), and I thought exactly the same thing when I first saw them. I took a Rove doubletake, and it was like, What THE!?

I makes me want to go all Monthy Pythonesque I must say:

There are Jews in the world, there are Buddhists,
There are Hindus and Mormons and then,
There are those that follow Mohammed,
But I've never been one of them...

I'm a Roman Catholic, and have been since the day I was born,
And the one thing they say about Catholics,
Is they'll take you as soon as you're warm...

You don't have to be a six-footer,
You don't have to have a great brain,
You don't have to have any clothes on -
You're a Catholic the moment dad came...

because...

Every sperm is sacred, every sperm is great,
If a sperm is wasted, God gets quite irate.

Every sperm is sacred, every sperm is great,
If a sperm is wasted, God gets quite irate.

Let the heathen spill theirs, on the dusty ground,
God shall make them pay for each sperm that can't be found

Every sperm is wanted, every sperm is good,
Every sperm is needed in your neighbourhood.

Hindu, Taoist, Mormon,
Spill theirs just anywhere,
But God loves those who treat their
Semen with more care.

Every sperm is sacred, every sperm is great,
If a sperm is wasted,
God gets quite irate.

Every sperm is sacred,
Every sperm is good,
Every sperm is needed,
In your neighbourhood.

Every sperm is useful, every sperm is fine,
God needs everybody's,
Mine
And mine
And mine

Let the Pagan spill theirs,
O'er mountain, hill and plain,
God shall strike them down for
Each sperm that's spilt in vain.

Every sperm is sacred, every sperm is good,
Every sperm is needed in your neighbourhood.

Every sperm is sacred, every sperm is great,
If a sperm is wasted, God gets quite irate.

I may be mistaken, as it's been a long time since Sunday school, but I think that may be the Christmas Goose....from the saying, "If you eat that you're gonna shit like a Christmas goose". The rest speaks for itself then?

I saw this yesterday... bizarro indeed. I wonder what they slip in the wine at church these days?

Actually, a Jesus logoed trip would be very festive. And it's a revelatory drug to boot, so it's very that-end-of-the-bible. Certainly the various bhudda loggoed ones have been done to death.
