The Hamster Bible

In a remarkable move by the Vatican, the Pope has recognised that Jesus (henceforth known as "human Jesus") may not be the only son of God. Recently released Vatican documents show that God may have sent Jesus-like figures to spread the word to other animal species too.

"Hamster Jesus" was a hamster who lived in the 18th century. He made a series of great but squeaky speeches which spread the word of peace and goodwill to all hamster-kind. The speeches are now lost because hamsters can't write, but the Vatican has known of them for many years. Also significant is that "Hamster Jesus" was tragically crucified by his fellow rodents on a tiny hamster wheel.

A "Hamster Bible" is to be printed this year. It will be made of wood chippings and sawdust and will be an essential purchase for God-fearing hamster owners everywhere. The Pope said, "Some people may think the Hamster Bible trivialises religion, but there are hamster souls out there that need saving. The Hamster Bible is as true and as relevant as the human Bible."

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