Holy Moses!

The Ten Commandments remind me of something, but I just can't put my finger on it . . . .


There's no point bitching about them . . .


. . . but do we really need ten whole commandments? Couldn't they be boiled down to something easier to remember?


And they're so negative! Don't do this. Don't do that. Why can't they be more uplifting?

The "Control Freak" one is funny. I read a book called "Living Biblically" where the author lived exclusively through the Bible for one year. The first half he lived as a Jew the second half as a Christian. When he did the Jewish portion he spent some time in the Hasidic community in Crown Heights. He said that it was a Religion made for people with OCD because there are something like 400 rules they have to abide by on a daily basis.

Oy vey.

HA! Love the 'Be Cool' one.

Doesn't Charlton Heston look a bit "stoned?"

DEZMOND said...

I had other tablets in mind too, like the last guy :)

jaz@octoberfarm said...

maybe we only need the 'don't be an asshole' one!

turquoisemoon said...

Charlton Heston...hmmmm wasn't he also the voice of the NRA??? hahaha...

Magaly Guerrero said...

I'm pretty sure that I just die a little... laughing lol

Sulky Kitten said...

I know which tablets I'd rather be given.

Linda Wildenstein said...

personally I think the tablets should read, idiots and assholes. That way they are all inclusive. Amen, Oma Linda

Jeanne said...

I never understood why any religion would want so many rules. Aren't most of these common sense? But I forgot...so many people don't even have an ounce of sense!
But if 'tablets and rules' are needed, then "Don't Be an A$$holes" would be the BEST!

Leeanna Henderson said...

If the Christian God gave out Prozac like that. I'd convert back to a Catholic.
Praise Cheezits... or something like that.

Plowing Through Life (Martha) said...

Hahahahaha! I love them all but the "BE COOL..." one had me roaring with laughter. That's pretty much all we need to do!

Lois said...

"Be Cool!" Love that one! I've never even watched the entire movie... I zone out. Too much prozac I guess...

Cheryl said...

I love the Be Cool, Don't Be an Asshole. Seems like that should cover most things.

SUZY8-TRACK said...

Be Cool! Love it!

CraveCute said...

Hahaha! Be cool! Life would be so much easier and pleasant!

greekwitch said...

These were hilarious! Especially the prozac one!
You are right about the cat hair not being dead or dirty. But it was still kind of scary. Who would do that?

Miss Val's Creations said...

Love it! The 10 commandments should be changed to be cool and don't be an asshole. So simple! I know many people who have their pills that make getting through the day much easier!

Laeli said...

Ha Ha Be cool!
And don't be an asshole is very similar to my refrain of don't be a dick. I love it!

Riot Kitty said...

I LOVE that last one! And good point. I like Jesus's philosophy more - positive thoughts. Be good, help the poor, etc.

Magic Love Crow said...

Be cool, exactly right!!!! ;o) Great post! You made me laugh again ;o) Thanks ;o)

Chung said...

This gave me a good laugh for today, thank you!

Jim said...

Love this Debra!! I always found these to be very negative....I like that shorter version!!

Samantha Stephens said...

Don't be an asshole. Love it! Of course the first four commandments have, for the last few years, struck me as the ravings of a sad, insecure, little god.

Sarita Rucker said...

Maybe they should be replaced with DFTBA. (Don't Forget to be Awesome.)

Laurie Mcknight said...

simple is always better!
don't be an asshole covers everything!
Oh and I also meant to say, we make those date filled oatmeal cookies every christmas, I think we must be related, lol,

mistress maddie said...

I think I may obey one,,,but who knows!

Adam said...

a little off topic, but one of the strangest claims I've heard some fundamentalist Christians claim was that the bill of rights was based on the ten commandments. Can't really think of any thing less like a right than a commandment. The first 3 commandments violate the freedom of speech and religion.

Birdie said...

I have narrowed down the 10 Commandments to 1. (I also want this written on my tombstone.)

"Be Good to One Another."

Kellie @ Delightfully Ludicrous said...

LOL! Life can definitely be summed up by Wil Wheaton's motto "Don't be a dick". Pretty much covers everything.

DWei said...

Don't. Be. An. Asshole.

Despite it being 4 words long, some people still have a hard time following it. We need to condense it further!

heartinhand said...

"Be cool" makes more sense than "thou shalt not..." Efficient!

greekwitch said...

Yeap magnesium rocks! You get a buzz and it is completely legal! lol

Blueberry said...

Thou shalt not be an asshole. Yes, the 'commandments' could have been a lot simpler. ;-)

Martina said...

Love these!

Francie M said...

hahahah. Never thought about it. They are pretty negative.

Fundy Blue said...

Too funny! I always wonder how you find these funny cartoons! Thanks for the laugh!

mrsduncanmahogany said...

Oh ha ha!! The last cartoon! So Monty Python!

JACKIESUE said...

I like..'be good and do good.'

Rose - The Center of My Self said...

Ha! A good buddy and I thought the same thing about laws. We really only need a couple, like Be nice and Don't do bad things to others or yourself.
