I read recently that Wal-Mart will soon be selling Jesus and other religious “action figures” designed specifically for children. Of course, being Wal-Mart, this surprises me about as much as another Bush Administration indictment. But I have to wonder: Who will be buying these things? Can you imagine the “playing” that will be going on in a typical household with these toys?
Mom: “Timmy! Quit hitting your sister with the Virgin Mary this instant!”
Timmy: “But Mom! She cooked one of my Three Wise Men in her Easy-Bake Oven!”
Sister: “Did not!”
Timmy: “Did too!”
Mom: “Both of you, shut up and stop ar—OH MY GOD…who flushed the Son of God down the damn toilet?!?
Sister: “That was Timmy!”
Mom: “Timmy, do you know how much a plumber costs?!?!”
Timmy: “But mom, YOU said he could walk on water!”
Mom: (sighing) “Jesus Christ”.
