Is that you, Jesus?

From CNN-

A statue of a baby Jesus in a Canadian church got an unexpected makeover, giving onlookers reason to do a double-take. And for good reason.

It looks less like the son of Mary and more like the daughter of Marge.

The statue depicts Mary with baby Jesus in her arm and it stands at the Ste Anne des Pins Catholic church in downtown Sudbury, Ontario.

The problem is vandals keep stealing baby Jesus' head.

So, recently, a local artist replaced the missing piece with a hand-crafted terracotta presence.
You can see the result for yourself. Locals joke the new head makes baby Jesus look like spiky-haired Lisa Simpson - she of the "The Simpsons" fame.
