Chicago police describe their investigators as "three wise men" on the case who are hoping to find the pranksters who stole 32 baby Jesus figures and dumped them in someone’s front yard.
Rev. Marc Pasciak counted "32 plastic babies" and nothing else. No wise men, no Mary — just the Jesus babies vanishing from neighborhoods around Midway Airport.
"Talk about a Grinch," Pasciak said.
A woman wanting to remain anonymous brought the Jesus babies to Saint Symphorosa church after finding them in her yard.
Probably the work of militant Catholic Adventists who don’t want the baby Jesus displayed until Christmas. Though why 32 and not 33 which would be much more symbolic
It is kind of funny to think about how they are going to get returned to their original owners. Will they have to go to the police station and pick theirs out from a lineup of Baby Jesus’s?
That’s the one officer – about 13 inches in swaddling clothes.
