Some readers may remember Ted, my lovely little lockdown lamb (not quite so little anymore). What you won’t know is that Ted was a crossbreed, so the farmer that actually owned him had him castrated to keep his flock pure bred. Trouble is he may not have been castrated very effectively. Ted has had a son. And get this. His son was born in a stables on Christmas day. In the morning. He’s been named Jesus, obviously. If anyone wants to bring Baby Jesus some birthday presents might I suggest some gold as it’s currently a record price. If you must you could bring Frankincense, but keep the Myrrh.
PS – I’ve just got the headline: Father Ted and the Immaculate Conception.
