The Weekly Pun Thread is Hiding Things

Welcome to the first Weekly Pun Thread of 2018. Today, we turn our attention to Spain, where it turns out a statue of Jesus was hiding something where only his proctologist could find it:

A statue of Jesus Christ on display at a cathedral in Spain has been hiding a secret message for hundreds of years in the most unlikely place.

It was tucked away in a hidden compartment in the statue’s rear end.

“Although it is usual for many sculptures to be hollow, it is not so much to find handwritten documents inside,” said historian Efrén Arroyo, a member of the Holy Week Brotherhood of Sotillo de la Ribera, according to Science Alert.

The statue, called Cristo del Miserere, had been removed from a church in northern Spain for restoration when workers noticed the hidden compartment beneath a cloth that covered the statue’s butt, Spanish news website ABC reported.

The good news for the statue is it won’t need to be checked again for 10 years.

Have at it!
