      I explained it above ... he obviously only appears every 4000 - 5500 years, so the fools still have another 2000+ years to wait for him to appear again. ;-) / Of course, there's probably hundreds of Jesuses (Jesi??) born every year in Spanish speaking countries, so even if the fictional fool did come back he'd need to use a different name ... maybe Zingnut-weeblebuster. ;-)

Noun[edit]

Jesi

  1. plural of Jesus (the Christian savior)

    • 1994 May 9, Lowell Kaufman, “Re: Plastic Jesus”, in rec.music.misc, Usenet, message-ID <2qk30e$k1i@crl.crl.com>:
      The intro about the song [Plastic Jesus] says, / "Noone seems to know about the origin of this song, although many have tried to trace it. Broadside (NYC), from whom this version comes, reports that it apparently originated from a commercial jingle put on the radio in Georgia by a firm manufacturing plastic 'Jesi'." There are many versions with many verses, but it is a cool concept, and can't be THAT old, so I'm surprised the origins are difficult to trace.
    • 1994 August 19, Robert W. Johnson, “PASSION PLAY "disaster"”, in rec.arts.theatre.misc, Usenet, message-ID <3331n9$q61@cville-srv.wam.umd.edu>:
      The understudy took the place of the 1st Jesus so the play could continue. However -- the weight differential between the two Christs was not taken into account and, when the cross was supposed to rise up. Well. It went flying up into the flies. Members of the audience probably got whiplashed... The play did not go on that night because two Jesi were hospitalized.

      The song [Plastic Jesus] is printed in Volume 8 SING OUT (1965). The version is attributed to Ernie Marrs, although the notes indicate that no one really knows the origins of the song. Speculation is that it may have been an advertising jingle for someone selling plastic "Jesi"(?!).

      It seems to me, judging from the number of proto-Jesuses (Jesi?) that were milling about in the centuries before the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, that in the New Testament you have one representation of an archetypal story, a story which people of many different religious persuasions had probably been interpreting and reinterpreting for some time, whatever the name they chose to assign their saviour/healer person (be it Mithras, Dionysius, or whatever).

      I heard a bit of news that has re-again destabilized my universe. I guess it has to do with virgins and immaculatti,[sic] but dna has been extracted from the Shroud of Turin. So, I'm wondering about the possibility an Second Immaculate conception and there being thousands of Jesi running around doing miraculous things like blinding prostitutes and causing the lame to talk.

      There's a wonderful new biography -- the guy was extraordinary, but it was quite clear his zeal and determination far exceeded his understanding of Jesus' life and work -- of course I'm referring to the Jesus who speaks in The Gospel Of Thomas rather than the various Jesi depicted in the canonical NT.

Did Mary and four apostles make a full house of worship?
