Has anyone else seen this? It is soooo tacky!

Madame Tussauds has put up a special Nativity scene in London.

Samuel L. Jackson, Hugh Grant & Graham Norton are the Shepherds.

Tony Blair, Prince Phillip & George Bush are the three wise men (I don't think so!)

Kylie Minogue is an Angel (well OK)

& Posh & Becks are Mary & Joseph!

I wonder who got to choose which "celebrities" would figure (done with large amounts of Christmas "Spirit" I would imagine!). The Vatican is not amused!

Well I like it. Especially the Posh n Becks bit. Isn't it just rather biting satire? the political ones might be a bit obvious but I can't think of a better comment on the Hello queens. Marvelous

They forgot Rebecca Loos as Maria Magdalena.

Really, Maurits, I think you're getting your scripture lessons confused.

Oops, that must be my jewish upbringing. But do explain what I have confused!

St. Mary Magdalen is conventionally shown at the base of the cross in pictures of the crucifixion, not Nativity scenes!
