I don't want the words to Plastic Jesus, but I was wondering if it's a parody of another song, and does anyone have the lyrics to the original. Paul Newman sang a non-parody sounding verse in Cool Hand Luke and that's what got me thinking about this.

Spaw, that makes you now the official tender of "Plastic Jesus" threads. I applaud your monumental effort!

Thanks!

You know, you can have your very OWN Plastic Jesus: a friend of mine gave me a Jesus Action Figure for Christmas, appropriately enough. He has fully poseable arms and "super gliding action"!!!

Yeah........like, what a dubious honor!

On my dash there sits St. Chris
Shows me where to take piss
With him I can drive at speeds quite fast.
He is my loving protector
The seein' eye for my radar detector
And with him I can kick them Smokeys' ass.

And don't forget my favourite (though possibly apocryphal) verse:

When I'm goin' fornicatin I got my ceramic Satan Sinnin' on the dashboard of my Winnebago Motor Home The women know I'm on the level Thanks to the wild-eyed stoneware devil Ridin' on the dashboard of my Winnebago Motor Home Sneerin' from the dashboard of my Winnebago Motor Home Leering from the dashboard of my van

At our BiLo (grocery) market we were amused last night to see 6" tall plastic Jesus AND Mary, plug-in nightlights, for that reassuring internal eternal glow. Only thing was, the plugs were mounted so they'd be set on sideways-- upright OK, but not straight lookin' atcha, jes' looming sideways.

Now I wish I bought a pair to auction and award to Spaw. Shall I??? To recognize him as Keeper of the Eternal Flame and All Plastic Jesus Threads?

Armadillo, a retail store here in Seattle's Fremont District (the Quirky Artists' Republic at the Center of the Universe, from which the artists have pretty much all fled now) had plastic Jesus action figures prominently displayed in its window until, a few weeks ago, it went out of business. If somebody wants one, PM me, I may be able to track down the inventory.

I was living in the Bible belt when the song came out. The versions allowed on the radio were definitly NOT tongue in cheek. Them people take that stuff seriously.

At the major auto parts chain here in D/FW, we have vanilla scented plastic Holy Mothers.

Why vanilla?

During the "Great Mudcat Adventure" when Allan C and I traveled around the USA we tried everywhere to get a plastic Jesus for the car without any success. Still never got one. We tried also for a "Barlo Knife" and couldn't find that either but Allan did eventualy get one and sent it to me.

When I was growing up in St. Louis, MO, on the fringe of the Italian neighborhood called The Hill (or sometimes by a more vulgar term) you could always tell which cars were owned by Catholics by the little plastic statues on the dashboard. They weren't always of Jesus. There could also be Mary, Joseph, St. Anthony, or several others. Sometimes one car would have 2 or 3 of theses statues.

You can order your very own plastic Jesus from Catholic Supply of St. Louis. Look for "PLASTIC STATUARY- non-colored" near the bottom of the page. The web site doesn't say whether they come with an adhesive patch for easy dashboard mounting, but I wouldn't be surprised.

"Why vanilla"
Because it's the capital of the Phillipines of course, and as we all know it is a predominently catholic country. Mea culpa....Giok
