Am I The Only One Who Thinks This Is Funny?

Photos have always held a fascination for me for the way they so often capture things the photographer could not have anticipated. A photo in my local newspaper today showed a group of parochial school kids depicting a nativity scene in a Christmas pageant.

Sometime between now and December 25th photos of things like that will be in nearly every small newspaper. Yet this one stands out for its inclusion, even unintentionally, of an additional religion icon...


Poetry, it seems, does not always need words. Sometimes numbers will do just fine.

the first thing i saw when i saw this on my dashboard was...
jesus was a bingo player????


at least these kids and my kids are doing their part to dispell the jesus-was-a-white-man myth.

our christmas program is thursday. we are singing silent night and frosty the snowman in spanish, and then presenting a little talk about the differences between mexican and spanish christmas traditions. then we go to the room and grub and sing 'nuttin for christmas' if i can get away with it.

How did I miss this posting? I didn't see it come up on my blogroll.

I LOVE it! And I especially love the comment about who went home with a shiny new donkey - lol.

Ho-ho-ho! Those three shepherds certainly got their cards marked!!! I don't think they are doing much adoring, they're just checking their numbers.

Speaking of which, I ought to check my blog roll better. I missed this, silly me.

love, Angie, xx
