Two thousand and nine years ago, the Daily Mail printed a story about the birth of a boy in the Middle East. Here are the top rated comments underneath the article:

As someone who has been in the B&B business for thirty years I can understand why nobody wanted to give those two a room. It’s their own fault for not booking ahead.

Pat, Londinium.

Mary’s the same age as my daughter and she’s already had a husband and a lover. Yet we can’t call them paedos as it’s not POLITICALLY CORRECT.

Cassivellaunus, Dubris, BRITAIN not England.

I hate the trend of people giving their children fancy names. What’s wrong with good old-fashioned British ones?

Kai, Powys.

Now they’re whining that Herod’s trying to kill them. I smell an ASYLUM claim in the making. No doubt Britain will let them in because what we really need more of are teenage Mums and penniless carpenters. Thank you Caesar!

Daffyd, Kernow.

You couldn’t make it up- now we have to change our calendars because of this boy. It will all be BC and AD from now on.

Bronwin, Wheathampstead.

If he’s the son of God then why are taxpayers footing the bill?

Evans, Gwent.

Apparently he’s the centre of some dodgy Middle Eastern religion. I’ve read about it and it is totally inimical to British values. Not that this bothers our rulers.

Celtpatriot, Britain.

And the worst rated comment…

You never know, he might make something of himself.

Joseph, Arimathea.

    Ahhhh, Rumbold – this was verging on pure brilliance, but you made the mistake of

    a) spelling, spacing and punctuating everything correctly
    b) using the word 'inimical'. Which Netbigot is smart enough to know what that means?!

    Must do better. :-D

    And a merry Christmas to all.

    (Just been sledging for the first time in years, hot chocolate in front of the fire, pressies all wrapped, must…fight..the…cosy.)

    I've always wondered what Joseph's reactioon really was.

    That chavette Mary is a single mum and doesn't seem to know who the father of her baby is.

    (V. funny Rumbold)

    Merry Christmas to all at Pickled Politics

    Excellent stuff Rumbold!

    Merry Christmas to y'all!

  7. Jai — on 24th December, 2009 at 11:07 am  

    Brilliant, Rumbold.

    A few more comments have subsequently been posted on that Daily Mail thread :

    “Mark my words, the arrival of this unassimilable alien religion with its foreign god will accelerate the genocide of aboriginal Britons. We've been here for 12000…..er, 17000…..no, 65 million years, ever since we 'voluntarily repatriated' the dinosaurs.”

    - Aspiring Iceni leader, currently living in Powys.

    “This is yet another sign of a global conspiracy. All followers of this 'Christ child' are trying to take over the world by any means necessary, and if they deny it they're just lying. Before we know what's happening, they'll start building their own places of worship all over Britain, with symbols of conquest like spires and steeples and everything.”

    - Septimus, Londinium, Stop the Christianisation of Europe.

    Merry Christmas, everyone.

    Hah! Nice one, Rumbold.

    Merry Christmas, all.

    Oh yes, Merry Christmas to all. Essay writing is atrophying my brain.

  10. MiriamBinder — on 24th December, 2009 at 12:10 pm  

    Delicious!

    Merry Christmas and a very Happy New year to you all

  11. Rumbold — on 24th December, 2009 at 1:21 pm  

    Thank you one and all.

    KJB:

    I just couldn't bring myself to mispell something on prupose. I do that often enough without meaning it.

    Jai:

    'Stop the Christianisation of Europe'- Hahahaha.

  12. douglas clark — on 24th December, 2009 at 3:41 pm  

    Rumbold,

    I hope you won't think this is trying to outdo you, but I think it deserves a place here:

    I think it says it all.

    “I run a small business importing frankincense and myrrh, and if these so-called 'wise men' just go around giving them away to every stable-born child – undoubtedly secretly heavily-subsidised by their homelands' fanatical regimes, while our incompetent chieftain Gorr-dun kow-tows to every piece of legislative nonsense the Romans have introduced to stifle our competitiveness – my livelihood, and that of my family is quite unfairly jeopardised. It's long past time we demanded a vote on our continuing membership of the Roman Empire.”

    Christianity started life as just another nutty Middle Eastern religion – attend a Coptic service to grasp this thoroughly – and changed in its Roman incarnation, was ripped asunder in the Great Schism between Rome and Byzantium [ ... far too difficult to teach this in schools, so it was omitted] then ripped asunder by the Reformation, then taken across the Atlantic and available on telly in various incarnations 24 hours a day on such channels as Trinity Broadcasting Network [

    … did anyone here see Hal Lindsay telling us that Al Qaida is in possession of 20 USSR-made suitcase bombs on a TBN broadcast around the time of 9/11 ?

    And from the Arab Times:

    Mohammed is visiting Mecca next week. All 9 year old girls are to report to him for a special lesson on growing up quickly.

    hee hee hee

    Classic

    Merry xmas everyone!

  17. Rumbold — on 25th December, 2009 at 2:45 am  

    Heh Andy.

    Douglas:

    Well, blogging can be useful, though it shouldn't be the only thing one does. Merry Christmas to ye. Enjoy the deep-fried turkey, I'm off.

  18. douglas clark — on 25th December, 2009 at 3:08 am  

    Rumbold,

    Of course. I expect you meant the deep fried Mars Bar, unless you think you've civilised me.
