Baby Jesus Ditched in Parking Lot by Wise Men of Parliament

From reader R.T.:

This sums up the typical Hungarian (or at least current government’s) sense of logic. Let’s build a Nativity Scene and put it at the back of the parking lot, cordoned off from the general public. And then to add insult to injury, let’s allow the cars to park in front of it so that the tourists and anyone else have absolutely no chance of actually viewing it.

Well said. We’d only add that since it is a members-of-parliament-only Nativity Scene, the gold, frankincense, and myrrh brought for little Jézuska have probably already been stolen, and the Virgin probably isn’t a virgin anymore. Meanwhile, it may be a good idea to downplay the whole “King of the Jews” business, so as to avoid aggravating any local Christians who might pass by.
