Man, Jesus is pissed.

You have to imagine that Jesus was particularly satisfied doing that. Given that they are wood sheets on saw horses and not regular tables, he can get such a nice spin when he flips them. When you are Jesus, you take your catharsis any way you can get it.

Turn the other cheek; flip the other table.

I mean, the guy was a carpenter, son of god or not he must have been all "let's see what kind of craftsmanship we have going on here....."

He wasn't a very good carpenter, though.

Came in to say I'm glad to see Jesus well-represented, glad to see I'm not the only one.

The first black and white Jesus one shows by far the best form. Make eye contact with your foe, pause, then demonstrate your contempt for his feeble furnishings. A calm table flip is the best table flip.

So many Jesi.

1. I didn't think any of these was as good as the big magic the gathering guy that was on youtube about a year ago.

2. I have never in real life seen anybody flip over a table. The table I am sitting at now could be turned over but I don't think I could throw it more than a couple of inches. The magic the gathering guy flipped over a card table which is engineered to be folded up and stuck into a two inch wide volume of closet space.

8 march 2012 is the current youtube time stamp so it was way over a year ago.

Worth it for the Being John Malkovich marionette tableflip.

That's a lot of flipped tables.

Japan surpasses the rest by flipping not only a table (heck, *anybody* can do that) but a table AND the tatami floor below it.

I love my adopted country.

I am forced to wonder, outside of the movies and a bit of television, is table flipping actually a thing?

bukvich: "1. I didn't think any of these was as good as the big magic the gathering guy that was on youtube about a year ago."

Alas, that this was a staged event, by a guy who has a stage persona named Francis. Just another one of those 'too perfect to be true' videos on the internet.

I feel like there should be as many Jackie Chans as there are Jesuses here, yeah?

Raging Bull, sneaked in there, the way DiNiro kind of throws the table away dismissively. Though the Tatami throw was also pretty damn impressive.

I hate half table flips. Flip em all the way if you don't think its gonna stop those movie bullets.

The collective noun for a group of Jesus Christs is a party.

This felt like a perfect way to start my day. Now I'm worried about my day.

Also, is there a word for "MetaFilter post where the original link is good, but you look forward to the comments more than the linked content itself?"

Jesuses Christ, surely.

Yeah: "disappeared" -- usually overnight. I've always wondered where they go.
