What is the shroud of turin?
The Shroud of Turin is a sheet of linen cloth with the image of a man who appears to have suffered physical trauma in a manner consistent with crucifixion. Some have associated it with Jesus Christ, his crucifixion and burial. You can see it exhibited in the Turin Cathedral: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shroud_of_Turin
I’m pretty sure Edgar doesn’t care about all that, though.
Edgar could have aleast washed it first!
That would really add insult to injury!
Is nothing sacred?!
Can’t we just let historic religious artifacts be historic religious artifacts, Edgar?
Hahaha! These two crack me up 🙂
I’m glad you like ’em, Julian!
Just wanted to say, I’m loving the summery header! He looks so evil with the water balloon 😀
Appreciate that, Sareen. Should have the water balloon storyline coming very soon…
Oh, the blasphemy… Very good. 8)
Too bad Edgar is already beyond the pale, because this is definitely grounds for heresy!
Now it’s going to have TWO faces on it.
Haha, brilliant, Michael!
At least someone is getting some use out of that old rag.
Lol, Brian! Better than just having it sealed in an airtight bulletproof glass display case, right?
I thought I just saw that at the museum….who stole it?
Ahh, but is that museum piece the REAL Shroud of Turin, or a clever forgery? Or is Nostradamus wiping his face with a fake, hmmm?
Somebody’s about to get real fired. 😀
Or at least lose some brownie points with the Almighty!
Ha! Love it. That came out of left field.
Left field of dreams, Stephen!
Lmbo! Now his face is healed of all blemishes!
And his skin is immaculately soft!
Edgar is a terrible butler. He should really rethink his profession.
I’m glad he’s just Nostradamus’ roommate and not a butler! These kind of things could ruin your chances for ever working at the Vatican!
I think I would be freaked out too!
There’s nothing worse than toweling dry with a priceless religious artifact!
It’s only the Shroud of Turin. It’s not like he toweled off with the piece of toast with the Virgin Mary’s image burned into it :D:D
I wonder what’s worse for your skin, rough linen or scratchy toast?
That old shroud was so dirty anyway, it could use a wash…
If he put that in the laundry, he would really lose face!
Well, that’s a good use for it! 🙂
Better than sitting in a stuffy museum, trapped in a glass box!
Ooooohhhh…that’s going to piss off someone. What a better way to start a Monday!
Starting with the town of Turin, Italy!
I’m sure if you hang it out on the clothes line it will be just fine!
It’s only one of the most famous religious relics in the world, a little fresh air and sunshine would be good for it!
More trauma for the shroud. 🙂
Shrouded in misery.
Well, at least we know now who’s face that is imprinted on that shroud-eh?!? …no more will it be shrouded in mystery! [wink-wink]
That could be an explanation. But if it was Nostradamus, he’d probably want to get credit for it.
He shouldn’t worry, it can’t be the real one. Can it?
Ah, but is the one in the Turin Cathedral really the real one or a clever fake?
love the shower cap.
it’s all about the details.
I like those little details, too. Adds one more layer to the fun. Appreciate the kind words, Rolfe!
Religious Artifacts are a crock, anyway, Jesus says this is not our world; our world is yet to come. Therefore, items of this world have no significance beyond any other item. It’s a crock, just like the idea that there is one person in the world who is “more holy” than anyone else, and thus speaks for all of Christendom.
… so, basically everything the Catholics believe.
Nothing like a little sacrilege to get you going in the morning.
A note on your last panel. You connected the bubbles from the two characters. I would think you would want a line between them.
It all hinges on whether you believe the Shroud is a genuine holy relic or just a piece of old cloth with some fancy stains on it.
Since Nosty and Edgar are in such close quarters, I felt a little word balloon overlay would be acceptable.
Absolutely. I certainly don’t ascribe to the idea of a “holy” item. I see fancy stains.
And sure, the bubbles can overlay each other, but the way the bottom bubble is open on the top makes it look like they are connected.
Better as a towel than used for picking up some Gorr turds.
You got that right!
Whoa! I just learned something new today. Thank you, Mark!
I’m glad, Jenn! The Shroud of Turin really really is fascinating.
I really wanted to make an AI joke here (Turing Test). Shroud of Turing: The sheet that covered the first sentient AI. Or something like that. *wanders off mumbling about three being a slight difference between Turin and Turning…*
I do the same thing, always trying to link things together for comedy effect. That’s one of the things I love most about having webcomic making friends, there’s a gag everywhere!
Lol Nice origin story for the Shroud. Much more believable then what resent research has provided.
It’s amazing that old rag has been around for so long!
I was just reading about the Shroud of Turin! That sure would make for an awkward bath towel.
And I can’t imagine any amount of fabric softener would help, either!
Old things are just old things. Glad to see he got some practical use outtta it.
It could either be a bath towel or a paint tarp. Beats sitting in a stuffy old museum!
P.S. If it was really that old wouldn’t it have rotted away by now??? My t-shirts don’t last that long before they get holes in them. Holy t-shirts…
Rotty Old T-Shirt of Turin just doesn’t have the same ring to it, though…
