A year or two ago at Kitschmastime, inspired by the Crescat, I delved into the world of tacky nativity scenes. I don’t know what I was thinking. But, like all bad ideas whose time has come, it turned out there was far too much material to use in one year.

So, speaking of bad ideas, we now proudly present: Tacky Nativity Scenes, the Squeaquel!

*

Who is he in yonder stall? Who? Who? Who?

*

This shepherd brought to you by Squick-E-Cheese’s: Where a kid can be a trauma case.

*

Unto us a child is hatched.

*

This one gets the seal of approval. (Get it? Get it? Seal? I’ll be here all night, folks.)

*

Are these nativity scenes kitschy? Does a bear pray in the woods?

*

Hokey smokes.

*

I’d complain about this one, but somehow I think I’d feel like a dog in a manger.

*

Join us again tomorrow, when we’ll see– well, I better not tell you what we’ll see, or you won’t want to join us again tomorrow.
