As Santa Weeps, Jesus Comforts. Glory. O_O

The 10th anniversary of 9/11 was two days ago. The country came together to pay its respects to the lives lost on that fateful day that changed the world as we know it. We’re all cheering New York on for still standing. Whoever did this painting was also tryna #PayAmish. They tried.

Santa weeps into Jesus' arms

My side-eye was so strong that I had to use eyedrops. O__o

What is going on here??? Well what I see is Santa Claus is weeping into white Jesus’ arms as a sad angel from 1920s TV stands in front of a fallen pez dispenser.

I have questions.

What is this painting trying to say to me? Was Santa Claus in one of the World Trade Center towers on 9/11/2001? I really hope not because who’s the stranger bish that’s been delivering all the toys since then? HIDE YO CHIMNEYS, HIDE YO COOKIES! Is this what happened when Santa got to Heaven? Did Jesus meet him at the gate, while Santa wept because he never got a chance to dye his beard black?

Maybe this is saying that the North Pole is remembering 9/11 and Jesus came there for a special visit. And Santa just fell in his arms to lament the state of the world. I don’t damb know.

Did someone vomit on Jesus’ robe? Why’s it upchuck green at the bottom? I’d like to think Heaven has Tide with bleach. MY Jesus’ clothes are always spick and span. And they smell like Awesome, Glory and Lavender. THIS Jesus’ robe is not e’em becoming or Christ-like.

I ain’t e’em gon mention how according to this, Jesus is all torso. And his legs are bout 2 feet long. I’d like to think my Christ has a very proportional body. This one might have a touch of Little Person syndrome.

Also, what is that angel standing in front of? I keep seeing a pez dispenser but I know that can’t possibly be it. Anyone know?

*sigh* I’m so confused. I’m really trying to understand what this piece is supposed to tell me.

Ok. Seriously. I know art is subjective and it’s in the eye of the beholder or the random person who got crayons or watercolor or paint. BUT, folks gon quit tryna be deep in these paintings out here. Just go find an apple and try to recreate it or something.

Oh, and in case one of y’all wants to buy this, you can, for $50. In fact, there’s a whole “Weeping Santa” collection. Apparently, Santa spends his off months *wall-sliding* in the name of life.

So… does anyone have answers for me? I got sooo many questions.

P.S. I really wonder if Tyrese painted this one too.

    I’ve learned one important thing from the Aew Luv blog – it is possible to paint in an illiterate manner.

    My only question is why is white Jesus’ head so damb big??? Was this a paint by number’s piece? I am foncused…

  3. September 12, 2011 at 11:48 pm

    Yall know I always got a few questions and concerns right??

    1) Why Jesus got that ole Hunchback of Notre Dame right shoulder? I mean I know Jesus bore all of our burdens when he died for our sins but did it really disfigure his body?

    2) I know Jesus is a comforter but I feel a lil uncomfortable about how he is tenderly caressing Santa in his arms.. #AllKaramo

    3) Should Jesus’ head really be leaning on his own damn shoulder for support like that?

    4) I need Santa to MAN THE FUGG UP! Quit all that boo hooing bro. You from the Norf Pole on real G’s slang that white ALL YEAR ROUND!

    I was in a really bad mood this morning (baby won’t sleep, 3 year old screaming, etc, etc) and then this happened and my day is now perfect.

    I cannot imagine for the life of me what caused this. I have seen a lot of really pitiful excuses for “honoring” 9/11, but this one just really wins.

    Everyone has pretty much covered all the bases of what is wrong with this photo and done it way funnier than I could, but I am curious as to why Jesus has a corpse’s hand? That would not comfort me. That is the hand of a zombie. Also, where is his other hand? Inside Santa’s coat? That’s not appropriate.

    • September 13, 2011 at 12:15 pm

      you truly made me go back and look at the picture woooow

    • September 13, 2011 at 7:28 pm

      Oh WOW! Who did this painting? Somebody tryna make my Kang Jesus out to be….Where IS his other hand?

      This just ain’t right

      I know this post is old as hell, but I’m at lunch and I’m bored. So. Anyhow, why you liken my Jesus’ hand to a zombie?!?!? I.FELL.OUT!! Another reason I love this blog!! Folks on here crack me up on a regular basis! Thanks for making my Monday 🙂

    I know you know this but that’s not a Pez dispenser. That’s Santa’s Hat, he dropped it when he kneeled first in front of the angel and then Jesus picked him up. (I’m just thinking)

    @Christi the “…Jesus has a corpse’s hand” and “Also, where is his other hand? Inside Santa’s coat? That’s not appropriate.”
    comments has me cracking up.

    The whole article had me cracking up! I so look forward to your daily musings.

      I’m just glad I’m not alone in seeing that! Stranger Danger should not apply to Jesus!

    Not Awesome, Glory and Lavendar! *LMAO!*

    Santa doesn’t have time to go to Heaven on Christmas Eve, so Christmas is in September up there. I honestly think he’s just jet-lagged from the flight and that’s why he’s all whiny. Jesus is laying a jet-leg removing miracle on him before he puts everyone in a bad mood.

  8. September 13, 2011 at 10:53 am

    Wow… one of these things is not like the other, indeed. Like, WHO told this person that Jesus and Santa are in desperate need to joing forces. Airthang was nice and dandy with them being separate entities. lol

    And I’m mad Jesus torso so long/legs so short, he look like a Street Fighter character.

    Clearly, this entire post (and comments) kilt me dead at work.

    Furthermore (and i’m ashamed that I looked at the pic long enough to figure this out), that is santa’s hat on the base of the angel statue. I bet the hat came off during what must have been the most epic wall slide evah.

    Also, when did Santa’s suit get that tan, butter-sof (yes…not soft…just sof) rabbit fur on the sleeves?

    Ima throw in a guess that the angel is overlooking Santa’s bag of undeliverable toys but that makes too much sense given the rest of the painting LOL.

      I just looked at the rest of her gallery – that’s Santa’s hat by the angel. For some reason in her pictures Santa’s sleeves and hat are gold.

    I’m pretty sure it’s not Tyrese. You know why? Tupac ain’t there. Otherwise, he’ll be weeping with Jesus and Santa.

  12. September 13, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    There’s a whole collection?! Santa spends a lot of time crying. This Christmas I’m going to leave some Abilify out for him next to the milk & cookies…

    Ok, first of all I have to say I love, love, love Luvvie, she is funny as hell and I look forward to her tweets and blog posts daily.

    Now, this painting..iHollered and gasped for air for a good 15 minutes after reading “Well what I see is Santa Claus is weeping into white Jesus’ arms as a sad angel from 1920s TV stands in front of a fallen pez dispenser.”

    Once I was able to get myself together and really look at the painting, I need to know how Santa and his gold fur trim, Jesus and 9/11 connect? Anybody? Bueller?

    Wow! This painting is a HOT MESS!!! However, I guess the painter used Santa because of the children who were on the planes used in the attacks… It’s a stretch but that’s all I could think of with this one.

    The painting is still a HOT MESS!!!

  17. September 14, 2011 at 9:11 am

    Let me just lay here….

    LOL!!! All of it is just WRONG!!!!

    Wait!!! Does anybody else notice that Jesus’ facial expression looks the same as a person doing the dougie!!!

    iCan’t this painting is all types of disturbing!

    • September 14, 2011 at 12:43 pm

      LMAO! The visual of Jesus doing the holiest of all dougies makes me laugh.

    Okay, I think I got some answers yall!

    Bare with me fo’ moment and let a broke english major put her skills of analysis to work…

    So Santa wont in the towers on 9/11 and neither was any of them grandma killin’ reindeer playin bald-headed reindeer games BUT the innocence of American children was. *makes the face Tyrese makes when he tweets something “deep”*

    The idea is that 9/11 forced children to grow up, so Santa ain’t got no chilluns to serve!

    Santa weeps for the death of innocence and consequently the loss of his job, as symbolized by Santa laying down his hat.

    In Conclusion: Terrorists won’t let Santa be great.

    The only thing I can’t figure out, is why that damn christmas tree is pokin’ out from behind the angel like the wife of a famous black historical figure (see https://awesomeluvvie.wpengine.com/2011/09/black-historical-figures-ride-on-horses-to-glory.html)

    But if yall not feelin my analysis, thas coo… *Has some seats in a corner and reads a Bible verse. Jesus Wept*

      Actually this is the most accurate explanation I’ve read. Children and innocent lives lost was the very first thing I thought of upon seeing this picture.

    You are all hilarious! I received this print in a lot of photos to sell on ebay. I tried to research the photo and found you guys. I am cracking up at the descriptions because they are funnier in life. I have the print and was reading your article and comments out loud and me and the family were all but peeing in our pants. What the hell?
