Ba Broom Tiff: Priests go hammer and tongs with broom sticks

That heading sounds like the punch line to some sort of joke. But this story is true, though not really in the spirit of Christmas. Some Orthodox and Armenian priests were cleaning the Temple of the Nativity in Bethlehem. One thing led to another. And they started hitting each other with broomsticks.

Higher quality video footage would lend itself to a Star Wars remix – the guys are already in robes.

  2. They showed this on the Today show with the Benny Hill theme playing in the background. Which as funny as it was on first viewing is probably a step too far in my opinion for a supposed news show (and yes I probably should have also put the word news in inverted commas).
