Since you give us such hilarious drawings that make us laugh, please accept back a "treat".

It is a lecture by Mr Claus Kenneth , a German , who became Orthodox after going all over the world meeting Budhists , Mother Teressa, occultist. He was born in Catholicism and was abused for seven years by his priest. Because of that he learned to hate Christianity. He searched for the Truth all arround the world and he became Orthodox after he met Elder Sophrony.

Though the starting/ending part and some comments of the homily is in Greek, 99% is in english.

You can find the video presentation of his book "A thousand miles to the place of the heart" here: http://intv.gr/site/index.php/video/biblio/234--q-q

The concept and execution are brilliant as usual, but you could've stopped at "Subdeacon Barfy" and I'd still have laughed almost as much.

Thank you, Alexander! Beautiful.

NH, I'll bet I could sell them for ordination gifts. :)

Almost 24 hours later, and I'm still laughing at "Subdeacon Barfy." My inner grade-schooler is completely delighted. (Don't mean to slight the fabulousness of the rest of the whole cartoon/text/joke. Just irrationally amused by that name.)

Dianne, I'm glad you like it. There's still things on some of the cartoons that I chuckle about when I think of them and I think most people don't get the references. Some day I should do an "Annotated Orthographs", but then if you have to explain a joke its still not funny if you didn't get it.
