Today's gospel...

... reminded me of the following joke:
Father was visiting the infants' class and the children were showing him their Christmas drawings. One had drawn the baby Jesus, another the Wise Men and a third the shepherds. The fourth gave Father a picture of an aeroplane. "What's that?" he asked. "That's the flight into Egypt. There's Jesus, there's Mary and that's Joseph."
"Who's that up front?" the bemused priest asked.
"That's Pontius Pilot."

I remember a similar story where the children were showing their Christmas drawings to Father and one character in a drawing was unrecognizable to him, so he asked the child, "Who is that heavy set man on the side of your picture?" The child replied, "Don't you recognize him, Father? That's Round John Virgin."
