Wasn’t Cocaine Jesus a Hippie Song?

Bernardino Garcia-Cordova was arrested for paying a woman to carry a seven-pound religious statue across the border at Laredo, Texas, when the colorfully painted statue--which might have been Joseph and might have been Jesus--turned out to be made entirely of cocaine.

First of all, we should be encouraging the revival of the folkloric crafts in Mexico, especially in this age of cheap onyx burros and sombrero paperweights. Secondly, there may be religious sects in Mexico that practice the inhalation of iconic figurines, so who are we to judge? And finally, no one would have noticed such a fine piece of craftsmanship had it not been for the vague, poorly articulated execution of the face. Was it Jesus or was it Joseph?

Obviously every customs and immigration agent for 90 miles around, on both sides of the border, is going to crowd around to argue the issue.

Cordova to police investigator regarding the woman's denial: "She don't lie, she don't lie, she don't lie, cocaine."

Investigator explaining evidence seizure: "Don't forget this fact, you can't get it back, cocaine."

Okay, my apologies to Mr. Clapton. I couldn't resist.

Who cares a statue is only an idol. Jesus is not a statue...Jesus is real. He is not one to make fun of either. If you want to make fun of someone...make fun of your mother see how you like it.

I'd rather make fun of Jesus' mother. I'm not catholic.
