Truth Is Stranger #110: "Lord Jesus Christ Suffers Injuries in Crosswalk"

Oh, some journalist in NW Massachusetts was SO pleased with creating this headline:

Lord Jesus Christ Suffers Minor Injuries In Downtown Northhampton Crosswalk Mishap

NORTHAMPTON - A 20-year-old Pittsfield driver was cited by police Tuesday after she ran down Lord Jesus Christ in a marked crosswalk at Main Street and Strong Avenue, police said.

Brittany E. Cantarella was cited for a crosswalk violation, said Northampton police Capt. Scott Savino.

Christ, 50, of Belchertown, was taken to Cooley Dickinson Hospital for treatment of minor injuries following the 3:30 p.m. accident. He was treated at the hospital and then released.

It would be quite hard to resist that, esp as the guy's name really was Jesus! I suppose it wouldn't sound quite so weird in Mexico, but this guy has got to have issues.
