Kids Having Kids

Didn't Joseph have a beard?

Even the sheep looks appalled.

  2. Don't know about the beard. I think he had a stable relationship, however.

  4. Please TRY to think of it as a little kids Christmas Pageant. Then you can glue some dust bunnies onto Joe's face or something. And the lamb? I think he just heard what's on the menu for Christmas dinner...

    1. Now THAT'S an angle I didn't think of. I feel better about it.
      But, that lamb seriously gives me the giggles. In retrospect, I think it's the funniest part of the whole thing.

  7. At least when they make kids do the nativity they put beards on them.

    1. Or on the women.
      For this to make sense, did you see that scene from Monty Python's The Life of Brian when they were selling fake beards to the women so they could participate in a stoning?

  8. He must have had a very close shave, the sheep looks like a crazy redneck just spotted it

    1. I know. The more I look at it, the more I realize that the sheep is stealing the show.

  14. Ok that is more than a little creepy. And baby seems to have already perfected "duck face" ready for the twitter selfies

    1. I thought it was a little creepy when I saw it. Then when I saw the lamb, I thought it was funny.

  15. This is true Al, we really can't bitch about teenage pregnancy when even in the bible it was apparently alright!

    1. Well, they didn't have TV and didn't have a lot else to do.

  16. it's all a matter of perception, seeing as how none of us lived in that period :D

  17. Well, if the life expectancy then was say 50, then middle aged would have been 25 (our 35-45) years, which makes prime baby popping age, um, like 16.

    See... it's all about the "new math"

    1. So...then I'd be...dead. I'd better pipe down.

  18. Is it me or do Mary & Joseph look like twins, which takes the whole scene into hyper creepy mode....

    1. I guess the only ones who had a legitimate excuse were Adam and Eve's kids.

  19. Yeah they do look so young but then maybe they were young back then who knows none of us were around but Juli maybe onto something.

  20. Wait, which one's Mary? And which is Joseph? And why does baby Jesus have so much hair and such thick eyebrows? And wasn't he born by immaculate conception? If so, who cut the umbilical cord? Did he have a bris? I'm so confused, Al. Good thing, I'm Jewish. I'm put Christianity to shame.

    1. Well, he was Jewish so I'm thinking a bris would have been in order. Normally, I'd say Mary was the one with boobs. But....

  21. That sheep does look seriously appalled. LOL!

  22. That is a fantastic nativity set. Almost as fantastic as our DIY one that we got from Oriental Trading. My brothers improved it by giving the baby Jesus googly eyes instead of the normal eyes that came with the kit.....

  23. The sheep was an unwilling participant.

  24. Looks like the two fellas, and the sheep didn't need Mary after all.
