Subject: Some Simple Questions!
Mr. Bob,
I've got a few questions that i'd love to get answers for from you
1. What is your religion "if you've got one"?

2. What are you getting out, by creating such an offending and rediculous site?

3. What are you trying to proof by setting this site? Won't it be better for you and your site if you had one of the sexy celebrities put instead of Jesus Christ?

4. Can you tell me how many people viewed your site and actually used it? And how many e-mails are you receiving per day that are asking you to remove or change the contents of the site as well as renaming it!!??

Well Mr. Bob, these where my questions. If you've got answers for them, then i'll be waiting for them, and looking forward to get them.

For some reason my eyes light up when emails list out specific questions, in order, all very official like. Thank you for that, Ramzi. Now let's begin.

1. What is your religion "if you've got one"?
I am an atheist. I'm not sure if it should be considered a religion though, since it's basically a denouncing of all gods and religions. And that's what I do. I denounce them all on the grounds that we humans just like to make up gods and messiahs to pray to and worship. We've done it from day one, worshipping the sun and animals and solar eclipses. Our gods are all made up which clearly explains the lack of evidence we have to present for them.

2. What are you getting out, by creating such an offending and rediculous site?
I get many many things out of my site. So many that I'm not even sure what order to put them in. So this list is not in order of importance.
a. Money! I sell a magnet version of the dressup game, and it's quite popular. $14 each. Interested?
b. Jobs! I get many people who come to the site then hire me to do work for them. I am a freelance artist. Need something drawn?
c. Satisfaction! I get a great satisfaction from the site because it has given me a platform to publicly express my beliefs. I am an atheist and much of what I do on the site addresses that. I am also an artist, so there's that too.
d. Fame! Have you typed my name into Google? Hell, have you typed "Jesus" into Google? Do it! You'll see what I'm talkin' about.
e. Girls! The chicks love what I do! I've been able to meet many girls on account of my site! Girls who I would've never stood a chance of meeting if it hadn't been for my witty and bold Jesus Dressup web site.

3. What are you trying to proof by setting this site? Won't it be better for you and your site if you had one of the sexy celebrities put instead of Jesus Christ?
The thing I am trying most to prove is myself. I am trying to prove that no matter how many people tell you you can't do something, or shouldn't do something, you can! And not only that, but you can do it and be absolutely right, and succeed at it! What's to prove by using a sexy celebrity for dressup? Those are all over the internet! And anyhow, they could also sue me if I were to try and profit off of their image. Jesus however is without any sort of copyright. Safe and famous. Perfect!

4. Can you tell me how many people viewed your site and actually used it? And how many e-mails are you receiving per day that are asking you to remove or change the contents of the site as well as renaming it!!??
How many people have visited it and played it? Christ. I have no idea. I know that at one point the site was getting upwards of 6 million original hits a month, but I totally lost track. All I know is it's A LOT! Hell, if you type "dress up" into Google it's right there at the top! That says a ton. It was even on MSNBC and Comedy Central, so that's gotta be tons more people that I can't even begin to count. It's a very popular and huge website, and has been for almost 7 years!

As for people asking me to remove the site, yes. I have gotten many many requests like that. When it was on the news the complaints were estimated at a quarter million. I try to respond to as many as possible, but there's only so many I can get to in a day. Then I post the letters on my site to hopefully answer questions before they're emailed to me. And people seem to love reading the feedback I get. I plan to do the same with your letter, Ram.

I hope that answered your questions! Let me know what you think of my reasons. I love to address people's concerns. I'm a people person.

Yeah yeah yeah. And it will rain a plague of frogs from the sky for a thousand days and a thousand nights and oceans of fire will flood the earth three fold, and He will come from the sky and lift up all who believed in His godliness and raise them up with Him into the heavens for an everlasting picnic in the clouds.

I'm very very scared of being hexed by your super wizard in the stars.
Seriously.
Really frightening.
Like, "Yikes!" terrified.

“i Suggest you put your sister or mother in the website”

DEAR MISTER BOB,
i Suggest you put your sister or mother in the website, then ull have the best visiting rate ever ,beleive me! cause i bet they are as low as you are!

Basem Sayej
grunge10@hotmail.com

You think that a site with an unknown like my sister or mom would be more popular than Jesus?? I don't think you know what you're talking about at all. No one would come play that dressup game. In fact, I bet the only people who'd play that dress up game would be my mother and sister! Haha!

That was a bad suggestion but thank you for the email anyhow.
Bob

 

“please go and get a life better than doing silly things.”

your site jesus dressup suckes .. you should be shame of your self .. please go and get a life better than doing silly things.

Seriously, it isn't that time consuming. I drew it once a while back and I've never had to waste another minute on it. So stopping it wouldn't really free up any additional time whatsoever. It just sits there without any maintenance or attention needed.

Thanks though!
Bob

 

“I would like to inform you that one of your website may hurts the christians at all.”

Subject: WebSite
Dear Mr. Bob

I would like to inform you that one of your website may hurts the christians at all. So I think you can try any character except the Jesus because he died for us and it is not a joke or a game, and we can enjoy your games with any other character, the site is: http://www.jesusdressup.com/

Sorry for disturbing and hope you will hear from me and change the site please :)
Thanks for helping and for your time.

Zaki Shaheen

Mr. Zaki Shaheen,
Thank you for your feedback regarding http://www.jesusdressup.com/.

It has been determined by me and my staff of creative personal that, however disgruntled you might be, the Jesus character is by far the funniest available subject for this particular dressup game. You can see for yourself by searching "dress up" on Google that out of 2,430,000 possible "dress up" options, the vote for the most fun one seems to be unanimous.

Thank you for your suggestion, but we're gonna stick to our guns on this one.
CEO, Vice Chairman of Jesus Dressup Enterprises, & King of Kings,
Bob Smith, Normal.
