Poor Joseph

Today the Nativity Scene made its debut. Brooklyn was in charge of Joseph, Mary, baby Jesus and a donkey. I looked over to see Joseph, lying supine.

"What's wrong with Joseph" I ask.
"He's dead."
"How did he die?" (The long journey to Bethlehem, living with animals, killed by the inn-keeper. What could it be?)
"He got a really bad flu....."


I guess he should have washed his hands better. And, darn it, if he wasn't feeling well, he should have stayed home!
