The 13.50 from Heathrow

It was revealed yesterday that what for 2000 years was thought to be the 'Star of Bethlehem ' was in fact British Airways Flight BA0119 Heathrow to Bangalore.

The jumbo jet leaves London Heathrow at 13.50 on December 24th and passes over Bethlehem late in the evening.

A BA spokesperson in a statement today apologized for any confusion that might have been caused over the past 2000 years.

Descendants of Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar were quick to defend their forefathers.

Jed Caspar explained his ancestor had suffered serious deteriorating eyesight while his two companions were wearing shades.

Shane Melchior and Dean Balthasar said that while it was somewhat embarrassing it was an easy mistake for the Kings to make as there was intermittent cloud cover that night.

The Pope was not available for comment last night but a spokesperson for the Catholic church was heard to comment "Oh Shit!!!"
