From bad to WTF?

The baptismal font in the Sistine Chapel, modern 1996 version

and the brand new one just installed for use at Epiphany 2012

Designed by a priest-professor of liturgy in Rome, "the new font is presented as an olive tree, whose base is a stone taken from the Jordan River, and whose top is a shiny golden ball representing the sun, which, when opened becomes a shell containing the water for baptism."

Here it is with the top on...

This certainly calls for a caption contest...

The Beast Who Ate Cleveland?
A Space Ship Landed In My Olive Tree?

"If you can only get one ornament for your Cristmas tree -- make it a giant golden ball. Available at Wallmart."

"Darn it, Xorg! Will you watch where you're landing this thing?"
