I hope no one finds this too offensive! I saw a cartoon once with the 3 Wise Men standing over a manger filled with mini cheeses and they were saying "Oooh, the Baby Cheeses". I've searched the internet for the cartoon but I cannot find it. It may have been a Far Side cartoon.

I don't have any Wise Men with my Nativity scene, so I used Mary and Joseph. I had to turn Mary back on because she is holding the Baby Jesus. I also positioned the lamb to hide part of the cheese name (it is Babybel).

The "orange" glow is coming from my Christmas tree lights and I held a small keychain flashlight over the cheeses for about 1/2 of the exposure time.

This is just the funniest thing I've ever seen. I'm sure you'll get slammed by fundamentalists, but I think it is so clever and imaginative. Not the best photo, but the idea is hilarious. I'm in a holiday mood - 8

6 - Very good. Obviously your title helps but even without it, more than half a second looking at 'most' should 'get it'. Can't see the pun is original but I have not seen it done 'visually', so well done. Criticism; in my opinion, if you could have 'somehow' (angle/perspective variation likely) shot this without the base of the carving(s) visible, would have helped this 'illusion' to be even better. The lighting is 'directed' well but perhaps a little variation or subtlety may have also given this extra 'drama'. Perhaps a little 'closer' too would also have been better, even just for more detail/texture on the 'characters'.

A great idea. Imaginative. I like the spot light effect on the cheese. I would of liked the background more in the dark than the way the light falls on it.
