An ass-kicking of Biblical Proportions
Out of all the brutal accounts of carnage in the Old Testament (The Tanakh, for those who prefer) perhaps my favorite is the part where Samson lays waste to 1000 Philistines with the jawbone of an ass. First of all, it's incredibly violent in a Frank Frazetta sort of way and secondly, it makes your Sunday School teacher have to say "ass" which causes uncontrollable giggling. I enjoyed this sketch so much, I'm going to work it up as a full-color piece.
