This is the most delicious piece of news I've read in weeks:

Man 'has sex with sheep in Nativity shed'

A man has been arrested for allegedly having sex with a sheep used in an undertaker's live nativity scene.

Joey Armstrong, 29, is said to have broken into the shed housing the animals used in the Christmas tableau in Charleston, West Virginia.

He has been charged with trespassing, destruction of property and cruelty to animals.

Charleston police sergeant Brent Webster says they are consulting with the prosecutor's office and bestiality charges could follow.

"Why is he being charged with cruelty to animals?" my coworker Mark asked, "the sheep could have liked it. We don't know."
