    How do you get that lighting? Is there a special “dooce thing” for that? Always a holy glow…

  • Peter Hentges

    Wow. Who knew comments turned *that* chatty late at night?

  • Carol

    “They melted. Someone got too close with the crack pipe.”

    LOL!! LMAO!! and other letters and whatnot whose meanings escape me.

    Poor George. I mean really…you’re just trying to DIGEST and suddenly you’re in the midst of a major controversy. I love you, George and your HD shirt.

  • former mrs. george #2

    I’m changing my name to mrs. Sheryl #2.

  • heathabee

    George is the definition of awesome. And heart melting. And not being dead inside.

    George, you rock.

  • nama

    why so, former #2?

  • Mary

    I just…just…just…can’t stop laughing long enough to say anything of consequence except: Does George have a girlfriend?

  • former mrs. george #2

    not because i lost my adoration for georgie or anything, but just because sheryl is so wicked awesome that i can’t help myself. i’m a fickle girl.

  • Jen

    OK – someone may have already answered this, but the “Hug him and squeeze him and call him George” bit is from Bugs Bunny. It was a vulture character who said it. Wow. I’ve revealed too much of my TV Land upbringing.

  • DeAnn

    I actually kind of love that and want it in the most weird and twisted way imaginable. I mean, I would totally display it. How weird am I?!

  • Liz

    Ack. How frightening.

  • DeAnn

    On closer look, I realize it’s quite possibly the cutest nativity scene I’ve ever seen!!

    Rules Two through Five

    2. Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend.
    3. No animal shall wear clothes.
    4. No animal shall sleep in a bed.
    5. No animal shall drink alcohol unless forced to worship at the clay creche.

    I haven’t checked in for a day or so – and I haven’t read all the comments, but:

    are those horses on the left humping???

    Cute nativity story:
    my friend’s nephew was helping set up the nativity scene with his Grandma one year (he was about 7) and he put a helecopter on the roof of the stable. Grandma said, “why the helecopter, James?” and he replied, “in case Mary needs airlifting to hospital”

    Don’t you just love kids? :D

  • jelene

    it looks like the animals ATE mary and joseph, and now they all have the EVIL eye and are wondering who’s going to get baby jesus first. i think the cow ate someone, because look at it’s neck, it looks like he’s about to hack something back up.
    the horse on the right, looks like he’s about ready to take a dump. i took a pottery class, well several, and people don’t make stuff like this, they make ashtrays and teapots.

  • Caroline

    Am I last?

  • Christine


    I hope all of you cartoon fanatics realize that that particular character is based on Lennie from John Steinbeck’s “Of Mice and Men”…

    If not, PLEASE TURN OFF THE TV AND PICK UP A BOOK. You’re scaring me.

    Thank you. That is all.

  • Margaret from Germany

    Guten Morgen vom Deutschland!!!!

    I’m last, sorry!!!

  • George

    I actually looked at this nativity on Thursday and threw up a little in my mouth. Not very pleasant.

    Yes, I’m single.

  • Fran

    too bleary eyed to read all the comments after an all nighter on the east coast…but it looks like the animals are bowing down and paying homage to the new born King, Baby Jesus. It’s a sweet scene…incidently, it was St. Francis who made the first creche.

  • sab

    Dooce, GEORGE! Rocks!

  • Caroline

    I never get to be first OR last. I’m getting the urge to lead some sort of rebellion. Maybe against socks. I mean, you already have one layer on your foot, do you really need two? What is the purpose of socks other than sliding around on hardwood floors and protecting yourself from odoriferous bowling shoes?

    I say, let’s make monkeys out of all of them. Everyone could use more sock monkeys!

  • Dr. Johnny Fever

    George, will you please come over to my house and help me open this damn jar of pickles? I can’t get the lid open.

  • Caroline

    I’m going to bed. I think the Dooce-Fairy should make me last. I’ll call him (yes, him, fairies can be male) Doocifer. He’s the one that makes Leta scream and creates disturbing ceramic creations. He’s a mischievious little fairy.

    Okay, so I’ve been up for 40 some hours. At least I’m sober today, Internet People.

  • Evil Stepmother

    Hey, Jen, I thought the “love him and squeeze him and call him George” character was the abominable snowman character.

    GEORGE! needs to relearn his southern roots and come to GA. I swear, he’s going to be the best internet celebrity ever.

  • Sarah

    Despite what the time log thing says, it;s 10.06pm here in Australia. What are you 4am posters doing out of bed??!!!

  • ranae

    i think it’s kind of cute – especially the chicken – the cow looks a bit contorted though don’t you think?

  • mrs. sheryl #2

    I work nights. I am about to go home- yay!


  • Homer

    That is the dumbest thing you’ve ever displayed on your site. Creepy and ridiculous. Go back to the endless Leta pics or AWESOME GEORGE!!! pics rather than this inane garbage. Thanks!!

  • Margaret from Germany

    Not any more!

  • Andreah

    I need me some George.

  • Chloe

    And this should make an even 450 comments. Jesus! That’s amazing.

  • Gonnas

    Is it just me, or are all the animals sneaking up on the Baby Jesus, perhaps with the intent of eating him?

    Is it just me, or is that one horse on the left pooing on that other horse cowering below it?

  • mrs. george #2


    Where are yall now when all these other nice posters have my back about George? Baby Jesus will cut you when he gets back.

  • wow

    Hey George.

  • The Mighty Jimbo

    i wonder how the artist felt, roasting jesus in a kiln. seems really like an express ticket to hell.

    well, that and having such bad taste.

  • Sheryl

  • Melanie S

    I’ll trade you a doggie friend (for Chuck), for GEORGE!

  • the original kp

    congrats fish!

  • Carol


    That sucks big time. I feel for you. My husband got laid off two weeks before our 2nd was due!

    Go get a drink!! Well, that doesn’t solve anything, but it sure does make you feel better. Unless you’re in AA or something.. in that case go get a Coke with lots of fizz!

    Bastards! They don’t know what they had!

  • Sheri


  • honestyrain

    GEORGE! is clearly a Superior Human Being. what concerns me most is that he likely doesn’t know it. being a Superior Human Being usually requires not knowing it. i just hope GEORGE! loves GEORGE! as much as we all do.

  • amelia

    I want to be in on the next Sheryl, Carol and Aaron conversation!
