The Gift of the Fourth Magi

5:09 pm · category: Uncategorized

When I was in college, I had a friend who, for some inexplicable reason, had an extra wise man in his plastic outdoor nativity set.

It just so happened that that year Christmas fell on a Sunday. So we put the extra wise man at the entrance to the Kingdom Hall on Saturday night, so all the non-Christmas-celebrating Jehovah’s Witnesses would see the wise man as they entered services on Sunday morning.

The JWs were not near so amused as we were and took the wise man to the police station. Luckily, my roommate was a police dispatcher, so she gave me the wise man back.

After that, we drilled a hole in the wise man’s mouth. We’d put a lit cigarette in his mouth and stand him on the edge of the stage when my friend’s band played.

Everybody should have an extra wise man.
