I’ve Never Wanted a Nativity Scene So Badly

You know how you can’t take a bath unless Jesus is right there next to you? (No? Just me?)

Now you can make that dream a reality!

I guess Jesus can float on water…

    Rubber ducky, you’re the one. You make bath time lots of fun …

    Mehat, do you ever think it is aburd that you are blogging this kind of tripe when you could have been a doctor?

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Rocky-Morrison/100001552602936 Rocky Morrison

      Oh, sorry about the spelling Mehta…of course it could have been Mehta, M.D. but what the heck.

      Its a lot easier to make fun of people.

      • Russian Alex

        Indeed. But it’s a very difficult and respectable job to leave bitter comments on atheist blogs. :-P

      • Cincinatheist

        In addition to blogging this kind of tripe, Hemant also teaches maths to young minds, coaches kids in speech/debate (sorry, I forget which and am too lazy to go check,) and uses his tripe-filled blog to drum up lots of money a couple times a year (or more) to donate to various causes. I’d say he’s square with the universe on his karma points (if such a thing existed.)

      Are you a doctor?

      Hell, NOOOO! He’s doing what makes him happy. I quit my PHD so I could throw myself into my number one hobby: traveling around the world to find the most grotesque Jesus statues on the planet. So far, Italy and Mexico have the best JESII (plural of Jesus?)…Two of my photographs were selected for  the Jesus of the Week page and I am mighty proud! This is my favorite…The ugliest baby Jesus on the planet…I found this Jesucristo in a Mexican church…He has no eyeballs and the angels are staring down at their wee fingertips with great conviction in order to avoid looking up at the situation…

    I regret to inform you that these ducks don’t float.  They’re top-heavy, and tip over.

    • Sindigo

      Tell me about it. We got the Wizard of Oz set. They’re also disappointingly small.

  • BeasKnees

    I’m not sure if the donkey duck or the baby Jesus duck with the little swirl of hair is my favorite..

    • Russian Alex

      I just realized that the “donkey” was sporting a mohawk. Come to think of it, from a certain angle they look like a punk, a biker (except in a white jacket — can be fixed), three hippies, two nudists, an emo, a couple of furries, and a hipster. Well, and some lost fella with a twirl on his head. Probably just came out of the shower to check out the crowd.

  • Robster

    No, none of them are hairy enough or middle eastern enough to even be considered a baby jesus or similar deity like thingy.

  • Annie

    I’m sorry, but the Joseph duckie looks absurd with that beard.  And don’t even get me started on the Mary duckie…

  • Aspieguy

    This is creepy. It’s clear that christians have scant respect for their own religion. How can they expect us to respect it?

  • Aspieguy

    However, if someone weighs less than a duck, he is obviously a witch. 

    • Toast4122

      She turned me into a newt…………I got better.

  • Jason Horton

    Cuckold Joe gets featured too, he’s usually forgotten in nativity scenes or pushed to the back somewhere with the cattle.

  • newavocation

    Ok Sesame Street, where is your Muppet Nativity scene? 

    • Sharon Crawford

      I’d pay big bucks for a Mary portrayed by Miss Piggy.

  • Ohtobide

    The information on Amazon tells us that they are not suitable for anyone under three and that the figures do not float upright.  What use are they?  And who would buy them?

    • Medea Ginger Hertz

       I did, I love rubber duckies and thought these were perfect. I try to put them up on a shelf during holiday time.

  • Vision_From_Afar

    The “Wise Duck” on the left looks like he’s sporting an old-school football helmet. I’d like to think he Tebowed at the manger, except he has no legs.
    …and he’s a duck.
    The angel is just cheating, too.

  • Sinfanti

    What the duck?!?!

  • Ashton

    Duck angel’s head kind of looks like a penis.

    So Hemant, did you get one?

    • http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/ Hemant Mehta

      Sadly, no :(

      • http://twitter.com/Brimshack northierthanthou.com

        Ah that’s too bad.
