Greek Orthodox and Armenian priests brawl at the Church of the Nativity

Priests brawl at Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem according to the BBC.


  1. Jolly good fun!

    But I have reason to believe that your alleged "American priests" are actually Armenian monks. . .

  2. New Christmas carol lyrics inspired by this incident. . .

    Clock their heads with brooms of folly,
    Fa la la la la, la la la la.
    Tis the season to be brawly,
    Fa la la la la, la la la la.

    Don we now our monk's apparel,
    Fa la la, la la la, la la la.
    Droll the recent YouTube video,
    Fa la la la la, la la la la.

    See the bloody fools before us,
    Fa la la la la, la la la la.
    Strike their heads and join the ruckus.
    Fa la la la la, la la la la.

    Swing we Yahoos, all together,
    Fa la la la la, la la la la.
    Heedless of the video camera. . .
    Fa la la la la, la la la la

  3. Dear Robin:

    Right you are about "Armenian" not "American". I was babysitting my 3 grandchildren ages 10,7, and 4 and got distracted and made a foolish mistake.

    Thanks for catching it!

    Your new Christmas carol lyrics have me laughing so hard I almost wet my pants.

    Thanks for the good laugh. I hope you are well and wish you a very Happy New Year!

  4. Hi Dave,

    I am doing OK.

    Certainly quite well mentally and physically, other than a possible stress fracture in my left foot from too much walking in bad shoes. . .

    Thanks to your inspiration I have created this OCCAM'S ZWEIHÄNDER blog post about this Christmas fi*ass*co. . .

    I hope you had a very enjoyable Christmas with family and friends (as I did) and wish you all the best for 2012.
