    Darwin is shopping for suits, but none of them fit properly. He walks up to an employee and asks "Hey, don't you guys have a more natural selection?"

    It'll get better, just give it time

    1. This is a joke, not a religious statement
    2. The "It'll get better" part was a joke about evolution

    Jesus is out shopping for suits. Liking one particularly snazzy outfit, he tries to ask a sales clerk how much it costs. She is preoccupied with her phone, however, and never answers his question. His not-so infinite patience having found its limit, he yells, his voice imbued with the sound of thunder, "Woman, I demand you pay me heed this instant!"

    Nonplussed, the clerk turns to him and says, "Sir, don't get cross with me."

    Just then a battalion of Roman soldiers break into the store, locate Jesus, and proceed to beat him senseless. When they've had enough, they crucify him and drag him to a nearby hill, where he will later perish to redeem mankind for all our sins.

    ...I admit, I'm still working on the punchline.

    Yours was better, but Jesus was a pretty patient guy

    Not in the cleansing of the temple he wasn't.

    The cleansing of the discount rack follows the same principle.

    I don't think it really does. This really doesn't need to be a religious debate thread, though.

    We're debating religion now?

    I'm just saying, there's a biblical precedent for Jesus losing his cool, and so the basis of the joke (as obviously exaggerated as it may be) has some merit.

    "I nailed it." (or some variation on that)

    It's on the house.

    That'll be good for the Treemium Rush.

    Genesis, Exodus, Job, Matthew/Luke (can't quite remember which), some of Ecclesiastes, and a few other assorted parts here and there. I might also be forgetting one or two. Plus, there's what I just pick up from film/literature/etc.
