don't make me...

... I'll do it. I swear it! I will convert to Orthodoxy right now if you people don't play nice. Don't tempt me.



At least Orthodox Jesus never looked this scary.

hahaha...I knew you'd love it. As someone commented, "it's Sacri-licious!" and the baby Jesus is a pig in a blanket...how much better can it get?

Wait...that's not Jesus. It's Beorn!

Well I've heard he does have strikingly blue eyes but this picture just makes him look like a hairy ape or something, gosh .

I think he's wearing the cardigan I just ordered from J Crew.

New swear word:

Holy Jesus in a twin set!

A local Orthodox church has an icon known as "scary Jesus" so perhaps this image has competition.

Wow, crap-TASTIC!

Are you going to do another Awful Nativity Set series this year? Those were great

I have a hunch Jesus liked that shirt cause it matched his eyes.

Re: Sausage and Bacon Nativity

Actually, making edifying scenes out of food and then eating them is very very Catholic. A lot of feast day foods used to have a picture element, though whether it would be the saint or an attribute tended to vary through centuries and regions. Usually today you see this with candy, though, and not meat.

However, it would have looked nicer if the maker had done the medieval thing and "painted" the sausages with egg yolk and various food colored marzipans, or something like that.

This reminds me of one of those paintings in a mystery movie that's watching you through the cut-out eyeholes...

I don't think this Jesus looks scary, I think he looks magical... like David Copperfield :)
