Prospects bleak for children born in mangers, claim sociologists

Children born in a manger and who spend the first few days of their life in a stable, have little chance of living beyond middle age according to sociologists at the University of Bethlehem.

‘Our research show that such children also often come from unconventional family backgrounds and, as a consequence, they may find themselves ostracised and ridiculed by others and ultimately drifting into gangs’ claimed the university’s Professor Pilate, ‘Before they reach middle age, such children can expect to suffer a violent death, probably by crucifixion.’

Professor Pilate added that survival beyond crucifixion ‘would be, in sociological terms, nothing short of miraculous’.
