Baby J and Links and The Crazy04 Dec 2007 09:04 pm

You all are so wise in the previous comments. I am astonished with your wisdom, Internets: If it makes you crazy to keep the Tiny Wooden Lord of the Manger in a dusty drawer? Well then, don’t. Fo’ Shizzle, my Annizle. Make Crazy your monkey instead of you being its.

So welcome to what is now going to be the Sporadic Updates About When Baby J Ran Free. Just remember: No matter what happens, at least he is not locked in a dresser drawer, forced to subsist on dust bunnies and paper clips until reuniting with his family Dec. 24th.

Here he is taking in the wildflowers and sunshine after 11 months in the garage:

Baby J chillaxin' in the flowers

Also, just for giggles, here he is playing charades for Julie:

Christ on a cracker

I guessed, ‘putting on the ritz!!!’ but it was informed my answer was incorrect.

And finally, here he is after we got joking, and Baby J whipped out this lesser known cursing depiction:

Baby J Sandwich

Yeah. It’s a Christ on a cracker sandwich. Buttery, buttery blasphemy. I’m so glad he’s road tripping it this year! I can just tell we are going to be B.F.F.

    Oh lord, I will stalk you like mad, like white on rice, awaiting for updates on baby J.

    This may be my favorite internet thing. Ever.

    Christ on a cracker. This is genius.

    I will now take my mom’s and do the same. Yea!

    Oh, the snorting! Make it stop! “Christ on a cracker”… that has got to be one of my all-time favorites. Can’t help but think this could easily progress into one of those coffee table book deals: The Sisterhood of the Traveling Baby Jesus; a Photographic Essay of Our Lord and Saviour, Pre-Manger Series. Just scrolled back up to the last picture and cracked up again. My stomach hurts.

    Oh Baby J. You’re so lucky that you get to be out in the nativity scene all December long at MY house!! Although Ann’s house looks pretty fun. No, wait, Baby Jesus where are you going???

    Baby J looks like he’s telling a story about the time he went fishing and caught a fish that was “THIS BIG.”

    Yeah, I’m that lame. 😉

    You are going to hell.

    Thank God I’ll have company.

    Can I come on that road trip? I can’t even have a nativity scene because it would spontaneously combust. I reckon yours is going to do the same soon, too. Take photos when it does!

    I think I’m going to send my husband a link to this post. He may just piss his pants….

    See you in hell, lol!!!!!!

    If God doesn’t have a sense of humor, I don’t want to come to the cloud party, anyways.

    Christ on a Cracker…hehehehhehe

    So do you think Baby J could do a lil world tour? I’d love to see what he looks like with a giant, Mexican hat on. Perhaps he could take in a Broadway show? There’s still time and he’s really got a lot of catching up to do. Being that he lives the majority of his life in a paper towel…I’m just sayin…

    You are so going to hell. I’ll be there too, so perhaps we can be BFF.

    Ok, first thanks to Julie for sending me here.

    And that is just too funny! I too await all of Baby J’s adventures this month…

    As a dedicated member of Cranky Advent-Geek Church Ladies Who Want to Keep Baby Jesus in the Drawer until the 25th, I’m glad I’m home alone right now so nobody can hear me shrieking and snorting.
    And the picture on Julie’s site was hysterical. I’ll be back.

    […] a carpet and upholstery cleaner today and spent some quality time with our sofa, rugs, and chairs. Jesus H. Christ on a cracker! The filth! My mom mentioned that she and Grandpa Texas rented a carpet cleaner once and that he […]

    Wow, you got more than giggles from me. Too funny! Can we make requests of where to find Baby J next? I’d like to see him enjoying a bubble bath, with candles. You know, a little Baby J time, after being cooped up for so long.

    You nut. I loves you.

    And let’s not forget: through the sublime power of Transubstantiation, Christ IS the cracker.

    Dear Lord, that’s the funniest thing I have seen…Quite possibly EVER.

    I was raised Catholic and we often discussed “What Flavor Jesus” would be served at the various places we attended mass…I always preferred the “hand-made by nuns honey wheat” myself.

    My husband and I, however, just started experimenting with churches outside the Catholic realm and were amazed to learn the Presbyterians serve what we have christened “Jesus Croutons” which are far tastier than the traditional Catholic “Jesus Crisp” or “Jesus Cracker” of the mainstream Catholic churches.

    OMG, OMG, OMG!! Christ on a Cracker Sandwich!

    I’m so in love with you now.
