coupla fortune cookies

Strutting around my mind this morning:

-- The real coward is not the man who cannot face others. The real coward is the man who cannot face himself. This is no joke ... and it's not easy.

-- It's a good idea to remember that Jesus was a brown man. The myriad limpid representations on Hallmark calendars hanging in kitchens across the country are understandable, but the fact remains that if Jesus had been white/pink, he would have had a hell of a suntan, coming as he did from a sunny part of the world. Remembering that Jesus was brown can help take the racist taint off many holy encouragements.

    George Spiggott: He's all colours of the rainbow, many-hued.
    Stanley Moon: But He is English, isn't He?
    George Spiggott: Oh yes. Very upper class.
