When I draw yipple-fings, I prefer them flying. I think everybody’s had fantasies about flying and being able to fly. When I was a kid. I envied birds, how they were able to fly by just flapping their wings and soar in the sky. I didn’t have any wings, but I sure thought a cape would do just as well. Kinda like Superman and Batman. Although Batman never really flew by himself like Superman, he always had to use the Bat-copter or Bat-plane to go anywhere in the air.
Angels have wings, but I don’t know if they need them to fly. They just show up, do their thing (like being our guardians) and disappear. I bet their wings have atrophied and are more ornamental in nature. However, nobody would believe a wingless angel. They might think it’s the devil, who was once an angel, but had his wings clipped and fell to earth. So maybe they do need their wings, which are really anti-gravity devices.
It must have been a trip to see Jesus rise up into Heaven. No wings. Just straight up and outta sight. If He did that today, it’d cause all manner of alarms and radar to go off, and He’d be swiftly met with a squadron of jet fighters armed to the teeth; America don’t mess around when it comes to unidentified flying objects (or in this case deities) intruding over our air space. It would sure cause a shit-storm in Washington if President Obama allowed Him to fly over the States. The Republicans would probably petition God, telling Him that right could be rescinded after Obama left office, and that Jesus better have a proper documentation or He’ll be deported.
