Bible Babies!

I had lunch with layer and on the way back to the office heard someone on the radio used the phrase "Baby Jesus wept." I've heard this phrase before, but it only just occured to me that it sounds uncomfortably like "Muppet Babies," and made me wonder what the Bible would look like if it had been cast more like this:

Piggy as Mary Magdalen

You can see it, can't you? I can.

That's funny.

My brain, she is broken.

Though, I see Fozzie as more of a Judas and Gonzo as John the Baptist. Actually, Piggy would sell anyone out for gold. Because gold can be made into such *lovely* jewelry. *Grin*

Far too tempting...
...to take this past its illogical conclusion. I know most of these weren't in Muppet Babies, but what the hell:

Sam the Eagle as Simon Peter. The three denials would be that much more heartbreaking if they were pompous.

Statler and Waldorf as the other two criminals on the cross with Jesus. "Being crucified can't be any worse than having to keep watching this show!"

The Swedish Chef as Paul. Because there's nothing in the New Testament that wouldn't be improved by bork-speak.

Re: Far too tempting...
Brilliant. Although, I think that for sheer pathos I'd go with Animal as Simon Peter. Can't you just see him taking on the centurions in the olive grove? And then, later, the denials...total heartbreak.

And Crazy Harry...why did he go crazy? Was he always crazy? Maybe he's Pilate, and this is what pushed him over the edge.

And I totally see Sweetums as Jeremiah.
