Oh dear....

A correspondant (biretta doff..) sends me the following link which reveals that British Celebrity couple David Beckham (soccer player) and wife Victoria (formerly 'Posh Spice') have been chosen to play Joseph and Mary in the Madame Tussaud's Waxwork Museum nativity scene in London.
If one looks through the slideshow, one sees that pop-star Kylie Minogue plays an angel; Tony Blair, George W Bush and the Duke of Edinburgh are the wise men; whilst the shepherds are represented by Hugh Grant, Samuel L Jackson (Ezekiel 25:17...) and 'gay' comic Graham Norton.
The Rev Jonathan Jennings told BBC News: "There is a tradition in which each generation tries to re-enact the nativity, but oh deary me."
