This modern hipster nativity set comes complete with a teenage shepherd boy on his iPhone as his “100 per cent organic” cow chews on gluten-free feed and his sheep poses in a Christmas jumper. Note the barn has a solar powered roof!
Mary has gotten a take-away coffee from somewhere and poses with a perfect “duck face” pout as Joseph, complete with a man bun, snaps a selfie with their newborn son.
Instead of the traditional gold, frankincense and myrrh the Wise Men, who have ditched their traditional robes, arrive carrying parcels from Amazon on tricked out Segways.
Will hipster Nativity Jesus be born with the ability to turn water into craft beer?
“After a few beers, we started joking about how religions would be different if their sacred texts were set in modern times,” Modern Nativity’s founder Casey Wright told Mashable. “We have quickly found out that this product is very polarizing,” he claimed. “It’s usually, ‘This is hilarious, I need one,’ or ‘This is sacrilegious, I hope you burn in hell,’ and almost nothing in between those two extremes.”
What do you think? Did you laugh out loud? Or is there a special place in hell?
