Tracie's 'Jesus was a ghost' epiphany was the funniest bit on Gogglebox Ireland last night

“How did Jesus die *after* he rose from the dead?” was the big question of the show.

OUR FAVOURITE TELLY-watching families in fine form on Gogglebox Ireland last night.

This week, they tuned in to a calving on Big Week on the Farm, the Irish in Oz on Bondi Rescue, and a documentary about Mary Magdalene.

The latter inspired quite a bit of religious discussion in all of the households – but the Liberties ladies found themselves in a bit of a quandary. Namely, how did Jesus die?

Anita: How did he die?
Tracie: Well, he rose and history stopped.
Anita: But what happened to him?

The programme moved on to the other families, but when they returned to the Liberties, Tracie was still puzzling over Jesus’ death.

She eventually decided to ring her mam to get it straight once and for all:

Heya mam. Have you any idea how Jesus died? Not on the cross, he *rose* from the dead. But what happened to him then?
Tracie: After he got out of the tomb he walked up a hill and went to heaven?
Tracie’s Ma: He was a ghost, Tracie.
Tracie: Oh, he was a ghost. OK.

There you have it, guys.

Needless to say, everyone watching at home was cracking up.

There have also been appeals to get Tracie’s mother on the show:

Never say Gogglebox is mindless TV. Haven’t we learned now that Jesus was a ghost? Thank you, Tracie’s ma!
