image for Worzel Gummidge 'Theory' - Part II - Jesus v Worzel Worzel Gummidge and Jesus had so much in common

Thinking further into the Worzel Gummidge 'Theory' as I have decided to call it (see prior story about Worzel), I realize that there are a lot of similarities between the births, lives and deaths of both Jesus AND Worzel Gummidge.

Both were born without 'conception' having taken place. Worzel lived his life on a cross (scarecrow style) and Jesus died on a cross (crucifiction style).

Both of their lives included lots of wood - Jesus son of a carpenter, Worzel son of a scarecrow-maker stuck up on a wooden cross all of his life whereas Jesus' dad worked with wood and, as mentioned earlier, Jesus died on a wooden cross.

Neither Jesus nor Worzel ever married.

Both their lives were lived 'in service' to the people, albeit in different ways. Jesus served his flock and scared the non-blievers whilst Worzel served the farmer and scared the bejeezers out of the crows.

Neither were paid for their work on earth.

Neither had a place to call 'home'.

Both performed miracles. Jesus healed the sick, turned water into wine and walked on water, to name a few miracles.

Worzel could TALK and he was a scarecrow. Also, when no-one was looking he hopped down off his 'cross' and walked around having fun like humans did. Miracles in themselves, are they not?

Jesus won the hearts of millions and so did Worzel.

Neither Jesus nor Worzel ever wore fancy clothes.

Neither were ever seen eating (apart from Jesus as the Last Supper where we 'assume' he ate but we have no proof.)

We never hear of either of them having gone to the toilet in their lifetimes.

Last but not least, they are both remembered today, are worshipped by their followers and have books written about them.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
