Prisoner’s Paint Their Own Last Supper

lastsupper-solitary.jpgIT’S the “LAG’S LAST SUPPER,” says the Sun of an 18ft by 6ft wall mural painted by inmates of Sudbury jail, Derby.

The reproduction of the “Cell-ebrated … Da Vinci masterpiece” features “the portraits of inmates including a murderer and an arsonist”.

The Sun hears from the “disgusted ex-con” who brought his “blasphemy” to light. Says he: “It is a sick joke and appears to glorify criminals.”

Says prison governor Chris Davidson said: “This painting has been in place for 18 months and was officially unveiled by the Bishop of Derby at a dedication ceremony. It features likenesses of members of the chaplaincy team, and some of the regular chapel attendees.”

Indeed, it’s not as if Jesus’ friends, the original 12 Apostles, were all whiter than white, counting among their number Matthew (tax collector), Judas Iscariot (nark) and Peter (denied knowing Jesus while under Oath)…

Note: If anyone replaces the missing fish, loaves and silvery cup before midnight tonight, there will no further questions asked. Jesus is watching you…
