Baby Jesus delivers!

posted by on December 26 at 13:46 PM

In Latin America, Baby Jesus delivers presents. My question is, how does he get them to people’s homes without a sleigh, reindeer, or, as far as I can tell, even a sack?

El Niño Dios or el niño de Dios, roughly, Baby Jesús. He use to scare the shit out of me when I was a kid, and he never brought me shit. In Nicaragua people use to refer to him as “el colochon” because they always made the dolls with goldy locks. Colonialism is a mo-fo.

Does David deliver gifts for the Jewish kids? Sheeba to the Hindus?

But Bill O'Reily says that "Someplace the baby Jesus is crying." How/why would he deliver gifts if he's busy crying???

Baby jesus was a cry baby. ha ha ha

Ok, maybe , and Im just saying, in Latin America we knew we weren’t getting shit for Navidad except more invasions by US Marines, and besides in Nicaragua, Navidad is just an excuse to get drunk off your ass and party in the streets and have sex with your neighbors for 2 days, maybe we adopted baby Jesus cuz he couldn’t carry shit and Europeans adopted fat ass Santa cuz yall knew yall were gonna be fat with gifts and non moist turkey and all the other shit that came from wealthy countries that were built on the backs of poor ass countries.

Clearly, "Baby Jesus" is a fraud, and is in actuality a time-travelor from the 23rd Century utilizing matter transport technology from that era.

Hey, its just a logical as the religious explanation...

Sex with your neighbors for 2 days? Wow.

"And Baby Jesus guarantees to deliver in thirty minutes or less, or your pizza is free!"
