Book of Mormons Repeat

As you might remember, the Deseret News is publishing one of my missionary comics strips every week. This has been a hugely rewarding experience for me. Not only has it been the culmination of a childhood dream, I've also experienced a number of firsts: I got my first hate mail* a few weeks ago as a result of the newspaper and this weekend I was treated to my first brush with celebrity!

On Friday, Donny Osmond posted a scanned picture of today's strip on his Facebook timeline and wrote, "I was just sent this cartoon and thought it was hilarious! Thought you would find it amusing as well."

Needless to say, I'm feeling pretty cool right now.

*It's probably a stretch to call it hate mail. It's more like slightly annoyed over grammatical error mail.

Charity Never Faileth

There sure are a lot of girls' names that double up as qualities used to describe girls: Charity, Faith, Hope, etc. I've often wondered why this practice doesn't extend to boys. I suspect the reason is that nobody wants to name their son Glutenous, Lazy, or Sloven. Anyway, today's gag--pulled from the out-of-print Mormon Life*--considers one of the unfortunate byproducts of such names.

*You can tell it's out of print by it's going price on Amazon. They're asking $25 for it! (They're also asking $984.37 for the equally out-of-print A-Maze-ing Book of Mormon. I've got 150 copies of that one in my basement. If they ever find a market for it at that price, I'll be rich!)

Message of Love

This is a case where the messenger needs to listen to the message a bit closer.

Benefits Package

It's a good thing that we don't treat church callings more like employment opportunities.

Repeat the Mormons

The creative mind behind today's gag, which considers sequel ideas for Meet the Mormons, comes from faithful reader Molly S. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to include all of her proposed sequels in today's gag. Those sequels include:
  • Cheat the Mormons: There's a reason we don't gamble.
  • Wall Street the Mormons: What happens after LDS Business College.
  • Peat the Mormons: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints looks into nonrenewable energy sources.
  • Discrete the Mormons: Missionaries are more like the Secret Service than ever!
  • Backstreet the Mormons: Show 'em what you're made of.
  • Eat the Mormons: The G-rated horror movie that's fun for the whole family!
Great job, Molly!
