Wes Anderson Bible

The Royal Tenenbaums or John 1

If you like Wes Anderson and you like the Bible, maybe you'll like the Wes Anderson Bible.

Like most of his films, this is a rated-R translation, but almost all Bibles are.


p.s. I apologize for explaining the joke, but this image brings together the theology of John Ch. 1 (w/ Matt/Luke) and this quote by Eli Cash:  "Well, everyone knows Custer died at Little Bighorn. What this book presupposes is... maybe he didn't."


  1. my thanks to Christian Amondson for this via FB.

  2. This is intertextuality at its very best.
