ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Now we what know what people looked like in the Bronze Age! It's obvious that he wove his outfit from his own hair, but what did she use to make hers? (Via Suddenly)
Feathers from tufted tits
All this time it was Tarzan and Jane instead of “Adam & Eve”.
Didn’t know Brylcreem was available in the stone age.
Brylcreem, a tiny grain shalt do thee
Brylcreem, thou shalt look so debonair
Brylcreem, adultresses shalt pursue thee
Behold, they run their fingers through thy hair
They just had to make do with triceratops phlegm.
An lo, God said, “Give them Product”, and he saw it was good.
I guess bad hair was another side effect of getting kicked out of the garden.
She killed a Muppet for her frock. It could be either Grover or Cookie Monster. I can’t tell.
I came here to say cookie monster. It’s always nice to have crossovers in fiction.
I’m not very familiar with the bible. Didn’t he tempt her with a cookie fresh from the oven of knowledge, or something?
I think it’s from a number of Russian Blue cats. :(
Come on! Lapiz Lazuli + Wool = Blue Wool… you don’t even need a crafting table…
Of course! :)
Judging from Adam and Eve’s perfect hands, they haven’t even started punching trees yet.
Looks more like the Bronzer Age to me.
Well, there’s a sure sign that our ancestors were tossed from the garden: look at those teeth. Pretty sure Dentists hadn’t yet emerged from the primordial slime. Especially ironic if the garden was actually in England…
(Easy there, Brits! You get a cornucopia of opportunities for cheap shots at us Yanks. Allow us once in a while.)
where did they get suntan lotion?
Is this the Andrew Loomis bible? :D
Heck, it’s even biblically inaccurate. If that’s supposed to be Adam and Eve in the garden, they wouldn’t have had a kid yet. They didn’t have Cain, Abel, Seth, and the rest of the unnamed progeny until after the fall.
That’s the “serpent.” God hasn’t taken away his limbs yet.
Is this Jehova’s Witness lit? It definitely has that look.
It’s funny how Jehova Witness and Hare Krishna stuff have just a certain look to them.
Ironically people who claim the Bible is a reliable historical source usually have no problems changing it to fit whatever their needs are at the time.
This has to be post-Eden since they’re wearing clothing. Maybe they just got banished to the other side of the river.
Since they seem to be wearing animal skins, they’re clearly not in the Garden anymore.
The only place I’ve seen that shade of blue in the wild, has been in old women’s hair. So I’m guessing there’s a bald bronze age grandma just out of shot.
Of course Eve was blonde! And they look exceedingly gleeful for people who’ve just doomed all of humanity to a lifetime of Original Sin. Christ, what assholes!
So I guess the Garden of Eden was located in a west Malibu gated community or something. That baby frightens me most of all.
Lush vegetation hides the dinosaurs. Lame.
they did a good job downplaying adam’s nipple shot, too. (and btw, does the bible explain why adam had nips in the first place?)
So I read the title really quickly and I thought that it was “Bible Fists”. Man, I really want that to be a thing.
Weird thing is I have this book at home from when I was a kid, plus several others from the same publisher.
Whoa, who new that haircare was such a priority back then.
Adam and Eve need Lebensraum
Aryan Adam and Eve on Yahweh’s golf course.
LOVE that well-groomed look! “Brylcreem, a little dab’ll do ya, Brylcreem, you’ll look so debonair! Brylcreem, the girls’ll all go to ya, you’ll love the natural look it gives your hair…”
I don’t know how to break this to you, Adam, but Eve seems to have been ribbed for someone else’s pleasure. Snake, you devil!
Bibles first, historical accuracy second.
It’s Tom Cruise!
I had this series of books as a child. Weird, I didn’t remember that until I saw this scan. It brought back some old memories!
Heh. I went out of my way to buy the whole series just for the illustrations. Cost me a pretty penny, but they are just something to behold. Not good, but certainly something.
