Who’s # 1

Easter weekend brought the youth of spring to New York. The trees are flowering and the temperature will be in the 70s by midday. Holiday-makers are returning from their vacations with tropical tans and the city is slowly resuming its hectic pace. The Hassidim will return to the Diamond District tomorrow and Manhattan will abandon the spiritual for its incessant search for the superficial.

Jesus has been exiled from his temporary # 1 status on the Google search engines by superstar Lady Gaga follow by teen heartthrob Justin Bieber and then cats. Not the musical CATS. Cats as in the household pet beat out the saviour of the Believers. Cats also scored higher than Barack Obama, Elvis, and the Beatles. John Lennon must be rolling in his grave to have fallen so low. At the peak of the Beatles, the singer said in a UK newspaper interview, “Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn’t argue about that; I’m right and I will be proved right. We’re more popular than Jesus now; I don’t know which will go first, rock ‘n’ roll or Christianity.”

The Believers in the USA freaked at this statement and irate church officials burned Beatles records in the South. Reporters in America badgered the Fab Four for a retraction and John Lennon gave them the following apology.

“If I’d said television was more popular than Jesus, I might have got away with it.” Lennon said he had only been referring to how other people saw their success, but “if you want me to apologize, if that will make you happy, then okay, I’m sorry.”

He was a man of his word.

And I think that he really was sorry.

For something, but not his words.

One more thing.

Fuck Lady Gaga.
