The Last Supper

Good evening, Readers.

Tonight is Holy Thursday. Christians everywhere recognize tonight as the night that Jesus was condemned to die.

It was tonight that inspired Leonardo DaVinci to create one of the most iconic images in religious art: The Last Supper.

Readers, from the left to the right we have Bartholomew, James (son of Alphaeus), Andrew, Judas Iscariot, Peter, John, Jesus, Thomas, James the Greater, Phillip, Matthew, Jude Thaddeus and Simon the Zealot. Image found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Last_Supper
As iconic as the above image is, I think that it's important that we remember what this was actually depicting. DaVinci was capturing the reactions of the disciples when Christ announces that his betrayer is among them.


So, Readers, in remembrance of Holy Thursday, I bring you the greatest lampoons of this Masterpiece. I must note that while I was doing my search, I was overcome by giggle-fits...May God have mercy on my soul.

I don't get it. Is Han Solo supposed to be the Judas figure? Image found here: http://www.fanpop.com/spots/star-wars/images/3967082/title/star-wars-last-supper-wallpaper
Arg...again with the weird Judas character! Cloud Strife doesn't strike me as a betrayer...and Sonic is NOT who I would cast as St. Peter!...Image found here: http://www.g4tv.com/thefeed/blog/post/712302/videogame-last-supper-nugget-from-the-net/
My fiance and I got into an argument as to Cookie Monster's character. WOULD he betray Big Bird? John thinks so. Image found here:  http://culturepopped.blogspot.com/2007/04/suddenly-last-supper.html
