Jesus had too many barnacles

"I didn't get Jesus either. I came in on the Holy Spirit, this vague force for benevolence. When I got baptized, I thought Jesus had too many barnacles. He was not a smart guy. He was unnecessarily fucked up. Then I did thirty weeks of St. Ignatius's spiritual exercises, and I got a sense of Jesus as a human unit." -- Mary Karr

You've inspired me to reread my Mary Karr books - just so great-every one of them !
