If you weren't one of the kids who stole the plastic Baby Jesus from the local church's Nativity scene, then you were probably one of the good kids. While I never stole one, the preacher's daughter did that fateful night in 1997 -- but that's a Christmas story for another year.

And if churches displayed such holy amounts of pork as the one in this Nativity scene, the Lil' Smokie that doubles as Baby Jesus wouldn't last very long at all. Body of Christ, indeed. This photo is getting passed around the web thanks to a Picasa user who uploaded it.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
