Santa and Baby Jesus


santa and baby jesus wtf

On the other hand, they’re both mythical creatures — so I guess this is perfectly appropriate.

  • Michael Mock

    Kenny Rogers came to visit the baby Jesus?

    • Noelle

      Did he bring him a song about gambling or fried chicken?

      • UrsaMinor

        Shouldn’t there also be references to a bad love affair and telling off the boss?

        • Noelle

          Kenny has a lot to get off his chest. Mebbe he’ll leave Jesus an 8 track to hear it all out.

  • Noelle

    Anything next to a babe in a manger is a good Chritmas picture.

    Anything next to Santa makes for a good Christmas picture.

    The two together are like the freaking wonder twins. Anyone who doesn’t like this doesn’t like Christmas.

    • Nox

      People brought Jesus gifts. Santa brings people gifts. If it didn’t look like Santa was praying I’d say this painting makes perfect sense.

      • Noelle

        He’s pulling the gift out of his hat.

        • Len

          Is it the Sword of Gryffindor?

  • Isabel

    I’d be more comfortable is there was also an unicorn as well.

    • Len

      She’s invisible.

  • UrsaMinor

    Santa: Balthazar, Caspar, or Melchior?

  • FO

    Santa is sad because baby Jesus is dead? oO

    • UrsaMinor

      No. Santa is sad because leaving a baby in the manger where the livestock can eat it is a traditional form of infanticide, and he can see how this is going to turn out.

  • Lynne

    Looks like something Elvis would’ve given to an orphanage.

    “Merry Christmas, kids! Swing by m’ mansion anytime for some Tang and Cheese Whiz!”

    • Noelle

      Now a black velvet Elvis with baby Jesus would be something worth hanging on a wall.

      • Kodie

        Dogs playing poker with Jesus. Make it one of those fiber optic dealies you see at the flea market, & I would totally get one and give it a place of honor in my home.

        • Noelle

          Kodie, I like the way you think. :)

    • UrsaMinor

      Ahem. Everyone knows that Elvis was higher-class than that. He would never think of serving Tang with anything less than Velveeta.

  • Lone Wolf

    “and one day you little half-breed rape baby, I will usurp you and I will be the new god and all will worship me!

  • MahouSniper

    Well, he is SAINT Nicholas. Is it so odd to see a Saint kneeling before Jesus?

    • JohMWhite

      Jesus predates Saint Nicholas by a few hundred years. Also, Santa ostensibly was created to deliver presents on Christmas once the festival was actually established. The idea of him appearing at the first one, in his 20th century attire, seems a bit convoluted. Unless there’s a TARDIS somewhere in the background…

      • JohnMWhite

        Whoops, looks like I failed at typing my own name.

      • MahouSniper

        Well, Santa lives forever, has a bag that is bigger inside than out, and has a vehicle that can take him to every home on Earth in one night. He is clearly a Time Lord.

  • Justice Gustin

    Looks to me like he’s about to suffocate baby j with his hat.

    After all, Santa is just an anagram of Satan.

    • mikespeir

      Nah. He’s just praying for SIDS.

  • vasaroti

    Shhhh! Nobody tell the fundies that St. Nick was a Catholic bishop!

  • UrsaMinor

    I think we should all set this highly controversial and historically murky “Santa” meme aside and go with the Hogfather.

  • joe

    Santa is Tebowing baby Jesus. Just kidding. On a more serious note. Did it ever occur to anyone that Santa is Jesus in his twilight years? Jesus rebranded himself to stay popular. Think about it. It makes perfect sense.

  • Dave Wyman

    Three mythical creatures – Jesus, Santa, and the guiding star.

  • Malvond

    I’m craving some Cherry Garcia right now.
