also, "Godot"


Derek's friend saw this one in rural Indiana. Apparently, "Jesus" is the assumed name of some other guy who's going to show up later.

Maybe the sign-maker is just referring to an acquaintance who's been acting a little too high-and-mighty lately. "Oh great...here comes 'Jesus'."

"Here he comes! Here he comes! Everyone hide! Oh...wait. False alarm. It's only "Jesus". Maybe next year."

Maybe you are supposed to pronounce Jesus a certain way when you read that sign. JEE-EE-ZUZ is coming!

If “jesus” is the same as not jesus, and not jesus is the same as satan… then add the fact that the “jesus” sign is near a corn field in rural Indiana…one might have pause for concern here.

Clearly, "Jesus" is a migrant farm worker who will be coming to help with the harvest. He has to use an assumed name to hide from ICE.

My guess is it's a warning to passing lumerjacks with an uncontrollable yearning to cut down any big wide tree they happen to come across. But mess with this one and "Jesus" will have your ass. Be warned, axe-wielder.

Actually, I meant lumberjacks, not lumerjacks. Lumerjacks would be something quite different, though I'm not sure what.

Jesus is coming! Everybody look busy.
Now try,
"Jesus" is coming! with the same phrase. Not as catchy.
Again, though-it might be a code name. Maybe a kid posted it and "Jesus" is the coded alias of "Momma".
Like, maybe the kid is hiding something from over-religious parents and "Jesus" is all a clever plot.
I'd keep quiet too.

As an atheist this sign amuses me, but if the apparent explanation is correct, then these particular quotes seem necessary.
