Jesus was on the receiving end of God's wrath yesterday when, during a late night wine tasting session with St Peter, He revealed that He considered himself to be ‘bigger than the Beatles'. St Peter, well know for his indiscretion (particularly regarding the contents of his big book) immediately spread word of Jesus' boasting.
Coincidentally, the news of His Son's transgression reached God as he listened to John Lennon, George Harrison and a selection of harpists doing their recent reworking of ‘Love me Do'. A mightily vexed God summoned His Son and let Him know His feelings in no uncertain terms, ‘I created you, and I created the Beatles, and they're bigger than you,' He slurred. ‘What have you done recently? Nothing! And we're all getting a bit tired of this martyr thing.' continued the Great Almighty.
According to a cherub who witnessed the incident, before hearing news of his son's outburst, God, carried away with the moment, had imbibed large quantities of a mystery liqueur. Perhaps this would explain why He ended His tirade by questioning both Jesus' motives for sacrificing Himself, and Mary's chastity.
