But Spike, this thread is the best laugh I've had for ages!

Seriously, it's a bit like those films that you remember as being great because of their mixture of tragedy and comedy. 'Little Big Man', 'Forrest Gump', etc.

I realise that some people are taking it oh so seriously, but that just makes it funnier.  Am I a bad person?  (I think 'Jesus and Mo' is funny too. http://www.jesusandmo.net/).
