Actually, it's H and not He that is responsible for most of the stars shining.

(Although He is produced by the fusion of H).

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Or maybe it's the communion that turned these cats into lions. Crazy how cats are solitaries, but lions are animals that live in families (prides). Maybe this is another nod at the fellowship through the liturgy.

He better be careful! (not for serious) Studies have shown that men who spend large amounts of time caring for their newborns begin experiencing the same kind of bodily changes that womenfolk do when they bond with their new lil Mookie or Agnes (for serious)...

Does "Ateu" mean secularism?
Atheist.

Then it's a silly cartoon because "atheist" is not a political position (of course, "American" isn't either, but at least it describes a society).
Is that what they teach you at the temple volnutt-stein?

Actually, it's Volnutt-berg.

Don't google "Orly Taitz Pancakes", then.

EDIT: I think both paintings are by the same guy. Dan Lacey. All of his paintings feature pancakes in some context alongside famous people.

^Only after the first wife died so technically the text is accurate. From what I remember his biography by Ibn Ishaq the text seems accurate. I don't remember a last will like that but that could be true too.

That doesn't mean that Muhammed didn't have the other side too but IMO it's nice that Muslims see him like that. That might make them imitate the kindness instead of the terror.
