Did Jesus Invent Sudoku?


Just wondering really, cos he seems to have some really nifty noughts and crosses moves up his sleeve. How does that one work? Surely after the first diagonal line has been completed the game is won. Was his opponent so poor that he not only failed to block any of the big J's moves but also failed to notice him putting in extra crosses? Maybe his opponent was distracted. Maybe it was one of his un-recorded miracles. Is it possible he pulled this one on Judas one quiet afternoon by the sea of Galilee, with rather unpleasant repercussions?

Surely a hollow victory nonetheless..........

I suppose I shouldn't be so blasphemously literal. Maybe the poster refers to a wider concept, something less specific. This being organised religion, the wider and less specific you can be with your symbolism the better , even to the point of inadvertently comparing Christs Ministry to cheating like a right bugger at simple pencil and pad games.

Just don't play any Christians at 'Rock, Paper, Scissors', that's all I'm saying.....

If only the Coca~Cola Co. had the balls to be so irreverent about the Messiah. It would seem that a new Italian film called Seven Kilometers From Jerusalem contains a scene in which Jesus meets the main character, an ad exec in search of spiritual fulfillment (It's been known to happen) and asking for something to drink, the now 'ex' exec offers the son of God a shiny red can of Satan's bile juice. I can see where Coke are coming from though, the film seems to be irreverent, ironic and absurd, and as such is open to literal interpretation by the religious goon squad. Just think, that contract to supply the Vatican with your tooth rot dispensers will only be the first of many to go.......

It's a moot point anyway, Jesus drank Irn Bru. Everyone knows that.............

But wait, this is not Sudoku, this is ... (don't know its English name, we call it 'Amoeba').

We call it noughts and crosses. It's just the bizarre formation of crosses that got me. Since Sudoku makes no sense to me, I assumed that Mr Christ had invented it along with the odd hybrid shown above.

"Jesus drank Irn Bru"

Only after a heavy night turning water into wine.

Very much indeed. Jesus was a wise prophet - no wonder he did invent Sudoku and all those clever things.

(thank you for the name of the game noughts and crosses. but I 'm inclined to think amoeba sounds better :-P

Billy - I'm sure he used it as a mixer too.

Szelso Fa - Indeed he was. It's a pity some of his wisdom failed to rub off on some of his followers....

zinzin - Ah, so just like a crossword then...... ;D
