Noah's ark

My good friend and fellow ward cartoonist, Kevin Beckstrom, has been posting a series of gags corresponding to this year's Come, Follow Me curriculum. They are quite good.* Today's offering, then, is evidence that I too am paying attention in Sunday School. 

It's kind of ironic that we depict the Annihilation of all but eight people as something cute and cuddly, but the story of Noah is one of deep trauma. That sense of trauma probably explains why God promised Noah after the events of the flood never to do that again and why Noah later drunk to excess (see Genesis 9:20-21).

*Having already created an entire book following the Old Testament curriculum, I'm curious to see what Kevin does when we get to some of the minor prophets' books.
