The Virgin Breastfeeding Baby Jesus

The Virgin Breastfeeding Baby Jesus
By Maestro del Papagayo

Because I am a mature person, I am not tempted to talk about the hilariously suggestive place Squishy is holding his cherries. Because it's not funny. At all.

The Nativity

The Navity
By the Limbourg Brothers
Les Très Riches Heures du duc de Berry
Illuminated Manuscript
Musée Condé, Chantilly, France

"They laid him in a manger because there was no room for him at the inn."

Here we see a manger made up of bodiless blue angels. Sweet! They fed the ox and ass out of that?

God's up on top surrounded by his own wreath of red disembodied angel heads. Even better (trust me, you're gonna want to enlarge the picture to have a closer look) his beard is emitting laser beam of light down onto his son.

Oh, and Joesph is wearing a super righteous hat.

See, when you're the son of God, you get whatever you want. For example "I want eight naked babies to hold up me and mom on a octogonal piece of plywood."

By Giampietrino
Oil on panel, 61 x 74 cm

Male pattern baldness Squishy leans across to Saint Jerome to say "Aha! So that's the rock you beat your chest with in the wilderness. Fascinating!"

A weird ghoul, lower right, makes a terrifying face as he realizes that Mary is wearing an acid washed skirt.
