The Temple: Love III

Publication Date: July 6, 2011

Chapter: English Literature in the Early Seventeenth Century

This comic mostly exists because, what with Mary Elizabeth alive and kicking over at Flat Feet, it no longer made artistic sense for She-Jesus to look so similar. That said, I also like the idea that She-Jesus may or may not be a Time Lord.

As for the work in question, it's seriously hilarious when read with an immature mind: the personification of Love (which I'm pretty sure is supposed to be God), insists that the speaker must sit down and "taste my meat." Now, if you write the phrase "sit down and taste my meat" in a poem talking about love, you're pretty much guaranteeing that I'm gonna snicker inappropriately at it. I really can't help myself.
