Your Homework For The Day

I'm a bit crazy with an offline deadline, so I'll just give you your assignment:

Starting with the prospect that wax does not, in fact, melt when submerged in the fiery pits of hell for all eternity by a wrathful God, please plot rank the following in order of sheer implausibility:

  • David Beckham as Joseph
  • Posh Spice as Mary
  • Samuel L. Jackson as a wise man (What's that, he's a shepherd? But he's wearing his Jedi outfit!)
  • The Duke of Edinburgh, as a wise man
  • Anyone who's not black and British giving a farthing about a flinty, racist old gigolo like the Duke of Edinburgh in the first place.
  • George W. Bush as a wise man
  • The marketing guy at Madame Tussaud's ever getting into heaven now.

  • Since 2001 here at, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

    Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting that time.
