I was thinking about which character Jesus would
be if he were on Gilligan’s Island. I know what
you’re going to say – he would be the Professor,
right? Well, that’s the obvious choice and that’s
what I thought at first, but now I’m not so sure.
I actually think he would be Maryann, who is
so innocent and friendly to everyone. She is down-to-
earth, earnest and helpful and easily the most
likeable one on the island.
I was also thinking Jesus could be Gilligan. I know,
I know, you’re shaking your head vigorously. But
hear me out. Gilligan tries to do the right thing but
is always getting ostracized by everyone else. His
heart is in the right place but he doesn’t get
acknowledged for that, just like Jesus. The main
drawback to that theory is that I just can’t picture
Jesus wearing that dumb floppy white hat or
getting chewed out by the Skipper all the time.
