Granted, Abel was an insufferable pious twit, but that doesn't mean he deserved to die. Although, it does make for good comedy!

"Am I my brother's keeper", found in Genesis 4:9 is one of the most memorable quotes from the bible. The phrase, and variations thereof, have since become the title of books, poems, television shows, movies, songs, albums, bands, comic books, plays, even computer software.

In the Qur'an (yes, the story of Cain and Abel is in the Qur'an as well), God sends down a raven to start burying Abel, and Cain gets all pissy because he didn't know how to bury his brother. That doesn't make much sense, but who ever expected holy books to make sense?

If God is all seeing and all knowing, why do they bother to ask Cain where is brother is? o_O

On a side note...Abel is a happy twit, even in death. R.I.P pious subserviant twit. You won't be missed.

Sounds like it could have been a minor variation on the Black Knight from Monty Python...

Where is your brother?
I don't know what you're talking about!
But his head is off!
Oh that, yes, it's just a flesh wound!

No, he's just fakin', the scamp.

Forgive me for tooting my own horn, but every time I read the line, "He slipped," I just crack up laughing.

So he[Cain] decapitated Abel (Although I imagine it was difficult considering the shape of the implements about.), and impaled him through the eye with his own staff. Nice.
Still, I don't understand how the halo is lying in the ground.
I also laugh when I think about how Abel was able to die smiling. I wonder what he would have to have been thinking to die like that? Lol.

Also, I think I'm going to start using variations of the phrase "Am I my brother's keeper?" in the future, only variations though, since I only AM a brother; I do not have one.

Nonetheless, it's kind of a shame we didn't really get to SEE Cain kill Abel.

Nice work anyway, though. I like the sheep's expression.

It's pretty obvious why he's smiling. "Hey Abel, god told me to kill you." "Ok"
