Some People Are Offended By This Nativity Scene Made Of Tampons
9:30 am, December 3rd | by Sarah Devlin
People get really into crafting around the holidays, which is one explanation I can think of for the existence of this nativity scene constructed out of tampons. Some people, however, like Penny Star at CSN News, are not amused by this particular project. She writes of the tableau, “Somehow it’s not awful enough that someone can’t resist dragging the holiest scene for Christians into the powder room. They have to make fun about a ‘bloody good Christmas.’”
Her point is well taken, but it’s not as though this particular nativity scene is being reproduced in elementary schools across the country or featured in any of the White House’s crafting bonanzas. Plus, if I didn’t know any better, I’d think that maybe TamponCrafts.com is trying to get a rise out of people. Here are a couple of the other projects billed on the site — take a look and then tell me if you think the brain trust behind the site isn’t purposely trying to get people hot under the collar.
