A top archaeologist has discovered sandals that may have belonged to Jesus Christ at a dump on the outskirts of Bethlehem.
Professor J Caringbunny was conducting a search for early religious artefacts when he unearthed the amazing find.
"It is an incredible discovery," the Professor told reporters last night, "And this is only the start. I have also uncovered a stack of old newspapers that may have been read by Moses and some old 'fairy liquid' bottles that may have been used over 2000 years ago by Roman soldiers washing their plates."
Critics, however, are sceptical of the veracity of the find and top scientist, Professor Stephen Hawking, wryly remarked, "They look pretty fresh to be at least two millennia old."
Professor Caringbunny is, however, adamant that the footwear belongs to the Son of Man and insists that he has proof.
"If you look at the heel of the right sandal" he told us, "You can clearly see the words 'property of Jesus Christ' written in biro."
