The perfect Christmas gift for….?


Brought to you by the ever-inspiring  Ship of Fools, from their annual round up of tasteful religious artefacts called The 12 Days of  Kitschmas:

Perfect for Baptist churches, we present the world’s first water-resistant nativity. Yes, it’s the decisive moment in salvation history presented in the medium of the rubber duck. Take them home with you and you can remember the Bethlehem story while wallowing in a hot bath.

Featuring: Joseph sporting a Beatles moptop… three bird-brained wise men, the famous spotted duck of Bethlehem, and the Blessed Virgin in blue with the Holy Duckling tucked under her wing – having just laid (and then hatched) him in a manger.

Best of all, there’s the duck at the back who’s been crossed with a sheep. Perhaps he’s the smartest of the lot. He’s probably realized the awful truth – that for ducks, the future isn’t bright. The future’s à l’orange.

So much goodness, so few deserving relatives to send them to….
