Da Vinci's famous masterpiece
I thought this appropriate for all the professed pagans out there, seeing that it is the week before Easter Sunday. If I offended anyone, well, just think about it. Don't you think God can take a joke? There have been so many theories trying to prove or disprove history, who is really sure of anything anymore? Wasn't that what the book The Da Vinci Code was about? Or the story I saw somewhere that Jesus was married and it was his spousal unit that was to his right in the famous Last Supper painting?
Doing a quick image search this morning, I found quite a few stories about and pictures of The Last Supper. Some were out and out ridiculous, like the one for a Francois Girbaud jeans advertisement that the Catholic Church victoriously had banned. Seems that the concept didn't go over too well.
Selling the Girbaud clothing line
Then there was this one for a gambling web site showing the disciples gaming at the dinner table.
Where are the slots?
One of my all time favorites is this "Fast" supper. Playing on words. I can't believe the Catholics left this one alone.

Someone had to be pretty creative, I thought, to come up with this Star Wars last supper. Luke Skywalker is in the "Jesus" position though. I would have thought sure as hell that Obiwan would have been seated at the focal point.
In a galaxy far far away
Then there's this Lego comparison to Leonardo's original. From what I can find out, Leonardo Da Vinci painted the famous work 1500 years after Christ. What version of whatever did he read or look at to get his idea of what they looked like, how they were positioned and what they might ave eaten?
At any rate, Spring is here in the Northland. This is one of the few times in recorded history that there was NO snowfall in March up here. A balmy 70 degrees today is forecast, yesterday was a pretty nice day bit windy, from the South, carrying the warm moist air. I think I already heard Mrs. Spadoman complaining about the humidity.
All this talk about supper made me hungry. And the change of seasons makes for a change in diet and with the Daylight Savings Time in effect, dinner, or supper if you call it that, time has changed too. I'll leave you with a recipe for a nice looking and tasty light accompaniment, or stand alone, Rotini Salad. This dish develops flavor as it sits and marinades in the refrigerator, so it's okay to make it the day before.
Joe's Italian Rotini Salad
2 Cups cooked and cooled Rotini Pasta, (spiral shaped, can be plain, or in colors)
1/2 Red Onion, chopped
2 Stalks celery, chopped
1 Small can Black Olives
1 Green Bell Pepper, Chopped
1 Red Bell Pepper, Chopped
1/2 Cup, (or more) Shredded Mozarella Cheese
1 Cup cooked Shrimp, Crab or faux Crab (optional)
Mix all together and toss thoroughly with Italian Salad Dressing
Joe’s Italian Salad Dressing
1 Cup Olive Oil
1 Cup Red Wine Vinegar
1/4 Cup water
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 Tablespoon Garlic powder
1/2 Tablespoon Oregano
1/2 Tablespoon Basil
1/2 Tablespoon Parsley
1/2 Tablespoon Onion powder
1/2 Tablespoon Black Pepper
A little Salt, or salt to taste
Note: Measurement of spices is NOT an exact science, add more oil and vinegar if you over did it on spices, and vice versa.
Mix together and shake well
Pour onto salad, toss well, allow to chill
I had to add this one, It's from Brother Kvatch:
Battlestar Gallactica Supper
