Well, it wouldn't be my show, but rather my concept.

Because my sister is a cartoonist and two of my best friends are film patrons, I'm occasionally thinking of ideas of shows to suggest for them. All of the time, they're just jokes, but one that I came up with seemed to had made a couple of people laugh.

Bare with me, it would be called "The Adventures of Jesus H. Christ In Space"(however, the show wouldn't take place in Space). The show would be sort of in the style of "Leave It To Beaver", only starting a prepubescent Jesus going through the problems of a modern day teenager, including puberty, girls, bullies, and, of course, 'strange uncles'.

I already have a couple of jokes set up.

1- Jesus breaks his mothers favorite vase, and in a fit of anger, she says "Oh Jesus!". Jesus, on his staircase, goes "Whaaaaaaaaat?"

2- After coming down from her rage, Jesus' mother says "I might have to crucify you for this". Jesus responds with "Not again!", and shrugs.

If you have a problem with this thread, I'll delete it, I'm aware that religion can offend people. Though, I don't intend to.

Also, after writing and reading this thread, it's starting to sound familiar. Had somebody already beaten me to this idea?

Andredit: Some of you guys seem to think that the theoretical show would actually be mocking the Christian religion or beliefs. While I'm no heavy believer, I thought it was pretty obvious that I'm not putting down their beliefs or religion at all. However, oversensitivity is why things like these(even if the show is pure shit) are kept away from the public.

If that was the standard of jokes, then no chance.

And as for it sounding familiar, maybe it's familiar to Jesus in South Park?

No.

Sounds terrible.

Sitcoms piss me off enough without trying to mock my religion.
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

when i was like 7, i came up with the funniest cartoon ever.

there was this fat guy (joseph) sitting watching football on tv. (american football)
there's this lady (mary) who runs in the room and goes "our child is born, what should we name him?"
the fat guy goes "jesus christ, mary, i told you not to bother me when my game is on!"

Too controversial.
Yeah, it would never get to air because too many people wouldn't be able to understand that I'm not actually mocking their religious beliefs.

i really wish i had pics to proove it... i just realized how immensely unbelievable this is but... i promise you... he was doing something to the dogs crotch with his face..

im only offended by how your jokes dont work, why would he shout whaaaaaat? if he knew he broke his mothers vase

why would he say not again if he is prepubescent and hasnt been crucified.

hmmm maybe something like

jesus drinks some water "this is some good ****"

one of jesus' pals "hey jesus, you ever wonder what its like to get nailed?"

i think the show should be called "JESUS MARY AND JOSEPH!"

ok im thinking about this too much

Peter: ngengengengenge, that reminds me of the time I was directing a sitcom starring Jesus!

*cutaway*

*mom drops vase*

Mom: Jesus Christ!

Jesus: whaaaaaaat
*laugh track*

cut back to family guy, everyone silent

stewie knocks peter down with a baseball bat

Stewie: and I hope you've learned your lesson!

It's funny because it's unrelated to the plot

I think no one else is getting the "it's funny because it's not" quality to those jokes. the jokes themselves aren't funny but it's funny when the cheesiness is implied.

Yeah, I thought that was implied.

The jokes themselves weren't meant to be the punchline, but rather that they're so cliche, they could merit a chuckle.

I don't write jokes(obviously), but I thought with appropriate acting, that could get some laughs.

but that's because the actors would be funny, not because the joke itself is.

Andredit: ^Yeah, that was what I was going for. I was hoping you people would take an imaginary actor in you head and play the joke.

I'm not defending Family Guy, nor will I here.

But if that's why you hate Family Guy, you're clearly hating it for the sake of being different. Those aren't the tpyical jokes dispersed throughout it's lazy writing.
