Never mind the blinkin' donkey: what have you done with my camels? I left strict instructions for their care, and here you are in the blinkin' Hyatt Hilton - why aren't they in the suites with you? Did you leave them with that spotty parking attendant, who'll be racing them round the car park with his mates?

Honestly, you go off-line for a couple of days and... [mutters as he exits]

Certainly.

If you wish my Henchman to give you an enema with a spoon, that is.

Meanwhile, on a hillside near Bethlehem, some shepherds are gazing at the stars. One of them is obviously an Australian.....

"Crikey, youse bloody sheep- bloody hell, watch those teeth!"

She creeps up behind one, pounces on it, and wrestles it to the ground. Holding it firmly, she turns her head and beams in the direction of any stray camera that may be around.

"Crikey, stone the bloody crows, this animal is a mighty tough one, and dangerous- kids, don't you go roughing up any sheep you find out in the Australian outback. Leave it to me, roight?"

The other shepherds groan in unison. Years of working with the Spare Shepherd have taught them the folly of politely trying to get the Steve Irwin -wannabe to shut up. Does she not realise that sheep are a far cry from crocodiles, and ancient Israel a miliion light years away from Discovery and the National Geographic Channels and the Bush in far-off Oz? No. She doesn't. So they beat her up, in a firm but kindly fashion, with their shepherds' crooks.

"Kids, don't try that at home. Crook injuries may hurt."

OK. Let’s see if you can follow the storyline this time

Mary got text-ed by a heavenly host,
Who said she’d conceive by God’s Holy Ghost

Though she was hesitant Joseph to tell
With the aid of an angel it took it quite well.

To Bethl’em Mary on a donkey’s back rode
Jo took a limo – he’s such a toad.

Wise men were told, “Just let the star lead”.
(A GPS system’s more what they need).

Herod they questioned, “Where is the King?
A star has foretold of this wondrous thing.”

But Herod’s a wicked, malevolent man.
With the aid of a henchman he’s thought up a plan.

He told the wise men to seek the King out
And when they have found him, to give him a shout.

Herod’s determined the baby to kill
I fear that the story will turn out most ill.

The tension’s so hard I hardly can wait
To see what develops, next, in scene eight.
