Ginger Jesus

New evidence her been released that suggests Jesus may have been ginger. I wouldn't normally make jokes about such a topic as it is the kind of subject where people get very offended. And sometimes people get offended about religion too.

The Churches Conservation Trust released an image of Jesus as a redhead. It's either proof that he was ginger or he just went through that odd phase where you try a new look. He could've gone Goth. No, a chav look. And then it would've made sense that he never saw his real dad.

It's a stained glass window, the east window of Holy Trinity Church in Sunderland, that shows the evidence of the J-Dawg's redhead. Some might say it means the colours in that window have faded and that there's no way he could have had that hair colour. Well, if anyone could manage a miracle it'd be him.

And sometimes it just happens. Sometimes, even though there has been no history of ginger hair in either families, a couple will have a ginger child. It must be true because I heard that from the British Royal family.

The reason this gets in the news is that February 22nd is National Ginger Awareness Day. Does it need an awareness day? Is anyone not aware of it? Of all the hair colours it's the one that brings the most attention to itself already. I'm all for anything that raises awareness of a form of discrimination that people may suffer, and sadly it's true that some may get picked on for having red hair. It's as bizarre as someone getting flack for having green eyes. But do we need a special day for them? We bald people don't have a special day and yet we get abuse in a similar way. I was about to write a letter to the organisers to point out that having a Ginger Day without having a Bald Day is unfair, it's not like ginger people are persecuted more, but then I realised I'd lose that argument. Of course ginger people are persecuted. One of them was crucified by the Romans.

HSBC - The Bank That Likes To Say... Sorry

HSBC has issued a public apology over claims it helped clients evade tax. As a bank it's now in that panic stage you get as a driver when you see the blue flashing lights; you go from cocker clever dick to the most contrite person in the world. "Oh, I'm sorry, officer, I didn't mean to do it. It's just that I assumed I'd totally get away with it."

This follows the revelations that its Swiss private banking arm had "aggressively marketed" tax avoidance schemes to the wealthy. Oooh, those sneaky Swiss. They are gits when it comes to banking, but think of the Toblerone.

That's the problem with the Royal Bank of Scotland, it needed bailing out and all those gave us was millionaire shortbread, which is not as good as Toblerone and also shows why they're so bad with money.

Chief executive Stuart Gulliver said the bank had "no appetite" to deal with clients seeking to dodgy tax.

Yeah, those wealthy people don't like paying tax. There's a theory that the rich people are job creators and therefore benefit society so much they shouldn't have to pay tax, the workers they employ pay tax. But that means anyone who hires a cleaner could get away with not paying tax. The infrastructure of the UK would crumble, but at least it'll look tidy.

The trickle down idea of economics is like a champagne pyramid, where you have the liquid flowing into the top one and the overspill fills the rows below it. The problem is, a rich person is like a champagne glass that has the ability to store champagne off shore. It means there's less left to trickle down. And the second level stores more drink till eventually the glasses near the bottom stay dry.

Stuart Gulliver also corrected an allegation. He pointed out that reports that the Swiss bank had 100,000 clients on its books were wrong. It had 30,000 accounts. Oh you saints.

Is this the most damaging banking apology? I'm not sure. I think the current Nat West ad campaign is worse. The claim they're "saying goodbye to unfair banking". Isn't that admitting you've been doing unfair banking?

"Hi honey, I'm home. And good news, I'm saying goodbye to screwing the neighbour."
"Oh, darling, that's gre...... whaaaaat!?"
