What Would Jesus Drink?*

Apparently a nice Venti Latte really perks you up after being crucified. At least, I'm pretty sure that's what the woman behind Mary (dressed as the Flying Nun) is holding. And how has Starbucks not tried to use this in an ad? These are the things I see when I go to an art museum (in this case the Alte Meister Galerie in Dresden). And why is Mary dressed like a nun? Was she psychic AND a virgin**?

Alternate titles: Did Jesus Drink Soy Milk Cappuccinos?, "Jesus Christ -- Your drink is ready.", "When Is a Latte a Miracle?"

* A pint of Murphy's
** And don't give me any sass mouth about the use of contemporary costume in religious paintings.
