Hipster Nativity Set Depicts Birth of Jesus in 2016
"A pair of brothers crafted a Hipster Nativity set, depicting a modern version of the birth of Jesus in the manger.
The $130 Nativity set brings the biblical Christmas scene into the 21st century as Joseph and Mary take selfies with the newborn Jesus in a stable with a solar-powered roof, the Three Wisemen on segways bearing packages from Amazon and the shepherd looking at his cell phone."
The Nativity scene certainly needed to be updated for the 2st century, but why did the brothers include an invention (Segway) that was introduced in 2001 with much fanfare as the replacement for the automobile, but turned out to be a huge sales disappointment?
And why on Earth are there barnyard animals in the updated Nativity set? It`s the 21st century dammit, and cats rule online and in real life. There should be a cat cuddling next to the Baby Jesus.
Speaking of the Baby Jesus, he should be an orange-faced replica of Baby Trump. I`m sorry if I offended anybody`s religious sensibilities, but Trump as Baby Jesus makes as much sense as Trump as Leader of the Free World.
It would have been a nice touch if Baby Jesus had been depicted wearing a "Black Lives Matter" onesie.
All in all a nice job by the brothers, and the hefty price tag is very much 21st century.
