Edith Cavell Hospital: Little Premature Xmas Card

Every year, the premature baby unit at Edith Cavell hospital sends cards to the other departments as well as to ex-patients. This year, they sent this card in mid-October. When you open it you see the message:

It's a little premature, but Happy Christmas.

It was just a matter of time before someone would start fucking around with those figurines in the Nativity scene.
And I'm so glad they did.
Why it's baby Jesus in an incubator!
How precious is that?!

I wonder if I can get them on eBay...

The idea is cool, but I'm always sceptical when it comes to politics and religion

When I first saw it I thought it was baby Jesus in a microwave oven, hahahahaha

But when I enlarged it, I got it right away. Awesome. I love it! Very cool.

Where is the arabic god squad protecting religious rights? I love the fact there's no response, and I hope when the next ad has a religious slant you don't get upset.
Seeeeeee. JC boys seem more open minded.

Drunk Dave, in Christianity its normal to portray Jesus.
People are used to images of him and Mary. Its not against Christianity but in Islam it is.
Not every Muslim went crazy over those cartoons, actually a very small minority. 300 people in Iran protested, the population of Iran is 10,000,000!
Media blew it out of proportion.

ps. There are one billion Muslims and theyre not all Arabs.

Point well taken. Just commenting on how everyone (and it was the hindi ad last time) gets up in arms here when their religion is taken in vain. As an aetheist I don't care, just wish everybody was as open minded. But I do respect others beliefs, as long as they're not thrust on me. As for the ad... hmmm ... cute would be the only adjective I could give it. Not really very creative.

& sweet. Congrats.
