In the summer, my biking route takes me past the American ambassador's residence. I always ceremonially spit while going by; I might graduate to futile muttering or yelling.

I'm legit proud of spitting on Cromwell's tomb when I visited Westminster Abbey with Flex.

You better be referring to George Burns as God (in Oh God and, to a lesser extent, Oh God You Devil) and Jon King of Gang of Four. Otherwise, we need a French or Commie revolution.

I only know about the baffling existence of of the Oh God trilogy from Wolter and Ali's podcast. The eighties were weird.

It may be entirely unfunny on viewing today, but I loved the first one as a kid (which might be the last time I saw it too). George Burns was a goddamned treasure.

Guess who's rumo(u)red to be the next ambassador to Canada? Hint...she can see you from her house!

Going back...

To be fair, the first one was the 70s, and directed by Carl Reiner, and *might* hold up now. The second, Oh God! Book Two, was...not. And does not. Though it does have a scene of a little girl being driven around by an invisible God on a motorcycle.

I migh have to download a copy of the first one now to see whether I can be, like, ten again.

We watched it last night (oddly enough, it was on a movie channel this afternoon) and, well, it's pretty meh. It seems like a constant build up to nothing. I ended up more interested in it as a historical document, reflecting/contributing to the resurgence of Christianity in the 1970s, particularly the strain that emphasized a personal relationship with Christ. Oh God! has a more liberal spin than the increasingly conservative take on Christianity into the 80s, but it does fit with Americans' growing emphasis on the spiritual, especially in a very public way.
