Perhaps you’ve heard about the little girl who came home from Sunday school triumphantly waving a paper. “Mommy!” she said, “My teacher says I drew the most unusual Christmas picture she has ever seen.”
Her mother studied the picture and concluded it was indeed a very peculiar Christmas picture. “This is wonderfully drawn, but why are these people riding on the back of an airplane?”
“It’s the flight into Egypt,” the little girl said, with a hint of disappointment that the picture’s meaning was not immediately obvious.
“Oh,” the mother said cautiously. “Who is this mean looking man at the front?”
“That’s Pontius the pilot,” the girl said now visibly impatient.
“I see. And here you have Mary, Joseph, and the baby,” the mother volunteered. Studying the picture silently for a moment, she summoned the courage to ask, “But who is this fat man sitting behind Mary?”
The little girl sighed. “Can’t you tell? That’s round John Virgin.”
