Bacon Nativity scene is truly a Christmas miracle!

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.
