Tokyo - Jesus was born inside a nuclear fast breeder reactor according to Japanese sources which have placed the Fukishima 'stable' on the conservation 'at risk' register.
Fallout specialists said today some historical corrections may be needed to the traditional Yuletide tale which originally saw Three Wise atomic energy inspectors arrive at his creche.
They had followed the signal from the reactor chimney's flame burst which was widely interpreted as a 'star' in the East.
Blighted by centuries of feckless Israeli disinformation the Japanese site nevertheless may be the Savior's true birth place.
Local legend has it that the Son of Mary is buried in Aomori in the northernmost part of Japan following a stellar career as a rice farmer, happily married father of six children and record breaking centanarian who died peacefully in his sleep at the age of 114.
"Sure, He had some dreadful nightmares in His sleep about being 'double-crossed' by His own Father," alleged Jesus descendant Sushi Wasabi-Herod said today.
And what about the entire Judeo-Christian legacy that is in conflict with such local folklore?
