Foreskin of Christ found!

Jerusalem - Amazing news from Jerusalem today as a team of Israeli archaeologists from the University of Tel Aviv, sensationally confirmed that the foreskin of the infant baby Jesus, known to followers throughout the world as the "Christ" had been found on a piece of waste ground in a quiet suburb of Jerusalem.

Dr Avram Cohen, head of the team who made the history making discovery told reporters from the worlds media about the find at a chaotic news conference earlier this afternoon.

Dr Cohen, a leading authority on ancient foreskins stated categorically that this was indeed the missing piece of the Christ puzzle that has for over 2000 years been the holy grail of the worlds archaeological community. He went on to say that after subjecting the half inch long piece of penile skin to a battery of complex and highly scientific tests he could indeed without a shadow of a doubt and with absolute authority say that this might possibly be the holy foreskin of biblical legend.

The news has sent shock waves through the normally sedate world of religion and has had believers flocking to the holy city in their thousands to gaze upon the most holy of penile relics.

No word has yet been forthcoming from the Vatican about the amazing find, but most Vatican watchers agree that it is only a matter of time before Pope Benedict formally welcomes the news and announces he will be making a pilgrimage to Jerusalem to kiss the holy relic.
