Warning: If you’re a very serious religious catholic person, there’s a chance you’ll be extremely offended with the concept of a Raptor Jesus. Well, shame on you! Jesus might have died for our sins, but it doesn’t mean he didn’t had a sense of humor.
From all the modern mythologies spawned from this chaotic mass of computer users we call the Internet, Raptor Jesus may very well be the most fiercely holy. Or the outright dumbest an offensive, depending on how you look at it. But since over here at Slices of Life we don’t easily fall pray to bias of any kind, it felt as though the time is just about right to create a post that educates Internet users such as yourself regarding this striking amalgamation of one of the dearest dinosaurs of its time with one of the dearest religious leaders of our time.
Raptor Jesus; the beginnings.
As legend goes, it all begin in that geyser of profanity and juvenile Internet jokes known simply as “4chan”. It was a day like any other, when… some person who was probably crazy (or bored out of his mind) came up with a rather unique notion: that of crudely photoshopping a raptor head on a picture of Jesus. Behold and lo, for this is the way that Internet memes are often born: through a mix of insanity, boredom and ceaseless repetition, like a rather distasteful butterfly effect.
Raptor Jesus: the very best pictures!
Fast forward a couple of years, Raptor Jesus is now an imaginary deity to be reckoned with, and everyone and their cousin has already come up with their own crudely photosopped depictions of a raptor-headed Jesus. There’s even a dramatic encyclopedia entry, which you should check out if you want more facts.
We will now proceed to inspect the finest Raptor Jesus gallery available on the Internet, which as you’ll noticed are interspersed with a bunch of quotes that I nonchalantly stole from the Urban Dictionary and similar sources.
