Virgin Mary Not Wipe Clean With Pre-Op Joan Rivers

by | 23rd, January 2009

IN Chicago the messiah is born under a bridge.

No, not Barack Obama. He;s alreayd been born. a new Messaia.

An image of what believers see as the Virgin Mary has been defaced again, this time with demonic graffiti that has lingered for more than two weeks, police said early today.

Can you deface a stain?

The image underneath the Kennedy Expressway at Fullerton Avenue on the North Side drew crowds in 2005 after Obdulia Delgado spotted it while driving home from work at St. Elizabeth Hospital.

It now draws worshipers who place flowers, candles and artwork around it, as well as graffiti taggers who have previously traced faint eyes and a gaping mouth onto it as if mocking Munch’s “The Scream.”

Does the Virgin Mary never get old, like James Dean? She did not die in childbirth but lived on. For all we know the Virgin Mary might have died looking like a pre-op Joan Rivers.

Yeah, and no longer a virgin…
