Christmas Weiners and Such

Have you heard about the hooplah in the Vatican over the Nativity scene set up at Madame Toussad's Wax Museum in London? It seems that they're quite upset with the "celebrity" nativity. And why shouldn't they be? Check out the cast of characters:

In the tableau, Australian pop star Kylie Minogue hovers above the crib as an angel while "Posh Spice" Victoria (the virgin Mary) lays her shawled head tenderly on David Beckham's (Jospeh) shoulder.

Tony Blair, George W. Bush and the Duke of Edinburgh star as The Three Wise Men. The shepherds are played by Hollywood star Samuel L. Jackson, British actor Hugh Grant and camp Irish comedian Graham Norton.

While I think this is a cool idea, WHHHHHYYYYY would you make Posh Spice and David Beckham Mary & Joseph? Bleh. I DO like Samuel Jackson as a shepherd and Kylie Minogue as the angel, though. If you're interested in seeing pics, go to's the fun part of the story:

Yesterday, Mom was telling me about this nativity debacle and she was saying that she had been watching CNN and they were teasing the story by showing a picture of baby Jesus in his manger. In her words, "there was a little black spot where his weiner was and I thought, 'oh, no! Someone's ripped off Jesus's little weiner!' but then I realized that they were just blocking out his little weiner."

Oh, Mom. Always entertaining!
