Baby Jesus v John Lewis

"Baby Jesus takes on John Lewis" (Telegraph)

Panicked Church of England members wonder which side to support.

Senior bishop says "It's not so much either/or as both/and".

Member of the "Jesus Seminar" says that while there's doubt over the Nativity stories, there's a 65% chance there's a very nice John Lewis in Reading.

Waitrose, the autonomous region of John Lewis that has a fledgling independence movement, points out that a free cup of coffee is the perfect accompaniment to gold, frankincense or myrrh, and there's free parking for your camel.

Keen to get in on the action, Arcadia challenges Mithras to "have a go if you're hard enough".


  1. Drat, I was looking forward to the Beaker view on "Baby Jesus vs Lennox Lewis".

    I really must get new glasses (or, indeed, beakers). I was also disappointed when I realised that the baby is "giggling" and not "gigging".

  2. Life will never be the same now it has officially been announced that Monty is a Penguin not a Python. Monty Penguin's Life of Brian doesn't quite have the same ring to it
