“What’s the difference between new age and pagan?” (joke)

A joke about new age and pagan (music and other things) is:

Q: What’s the difference between new age and pagan?
A: About $500 a weekend.


That is, it’s essentially the same stuff, but “new age” means more expensive.

One order of magnitude in price” was posted to the newsgroup alt.fan.tito on April 22, 1996. “What’s the difference between New Age and Pagan?

Heh, I’m a committed Pagan, and most of *us* think that New Agers are vapid and silly. Leads to the old joke:

“What’s the difference between Pagan and New Age? One order of magnitude in price”.

Way _I_ heard it was: What’s the difference between a Pagan and a New Ager? A decimal point. A New Ager will give you for $300 what you could go to the Wiccans to get for $30. (Heard from a Neo-Pagan Bard friend of mine)

About $500 a weekend.

This joke is a commentary on the fact that New Age often means consume your way to enlightenment. Rather than sitting down and doing hard thinking and deep philosophizing, along with a dose of scholarly work to find your way (this applies to both Pagan and non-Pagan paths), just buy these trinkets, and it’ll all be ok…

I think I have a good answer for the difference between New Age and #Pagan, finally. If you can make money doing it, it’s New Age.
