Marshmallow baby Jesus? Check. Kitchen timer baby Jesus? Absolutely. Giant inflatable baby Jesus that lights up? You betcha. All this and more at the Cavalcade of Bad Nativities. Once you're finished beholding him in all his cheesy infant glory, meditate upon the rest of his (badly rendered) life and works at The Passion of the Tchotchke.

These poor imitations make the baby Jesus cry.

Poorly done recreations in the marketplace of the temple.

Can the marshmallow ones be used for Eucharist?

Well, today's off to a good start. The favicon alone is worth a clickthrough.

It certainly goes the "Plastic Jesus on my Dashboard" one better, doesn't it?

I woke up this morning and my car window was busted out - but apparently nothing's missing. I've been missing my ID, Bank Card and ATM Card for a week. I just looked in the bag I brought to work and the glass jar my lunch was in broke, covering my mail with food and broken glass. But this - this almost makes up for it all, thanks.

As a previous dollar-store employee I have a love/hate relationship with kitschy resin dolls (which would make a good band name). And there's no kitschy resin doll like a religious kitschy resin doll. I have a small collection of gaudy religious paraphernalia including the "Jesus in an Egg" resin doll, holographic Jesus necklace and a set of three Jesus 'n' Mary Holographic pictures, but this is an impressive collection. I happen to find marketing religious goods, especially those made by overworked poor people, rather disturbing but that doesn't keep me from buying them or enjoying the extreme amounts of cognitive dissonanace they give me. Also see these great Jesus Inspirational Sports Statues. When I was looking for those I happened across this 1" rosary ring w/ cross - in the chastity section. Does that have disturbing implications for anyone else? And don't forget to pick up a few cases of God's Love for You.

I love the fact that she's a church secretary who takes classes in Homiletics. Makes the tone even more perfect. Nice post, LeeJay.

That's an impressive collection. Thank you Jesus, for bringing me this link.

This is my body . . . which, when combined with butter and rice cereal, makes a delicious and affordable treat!

I am the proud owner of a gold-plastic-jesus-on-the-cross snowdome filled with glitter.

But I am in awe.
