Virgin birth: Branson does the nativity

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly):

Not content with claiming space for his corporate empire, Richard Branson has reached back in time to claim the Virgin birth for Virgin. Here's an advent calendar that appears to have been sent to customers of his Virgin Media TV service, depicting the "NaTiVoty" (a plug for the company's TiVo digital TV box).

Of course Branson himself is included, but not as a mere shepherd, or even a wise man bending the knee to the baby Jesus. No. You'll need to cast your vision skywards, for there he is, depicted as the Angel Gabriel giving the thumbs up to proceedings on the ground in Bethlehem.

Happy Advent, everybody!
