On our way home today we saw a group of 12 year olds setting up an elaborate crucifixion scene by the side of the road. Some of the kids were dressed normal enough and few were in red capes. The heaviest kid of the bunch was dressed in traditional beige Jesus-robes, covered in fake blood with a thorny crown, and strapped to a giant wooden cross.

I'm not entirely sure if it was a reenactment of the crucifixion or a gang of religious bullies tormenting a poor classmate. Either way my attempts to photograph it were foiled by a moving car and the inability, apparently, to use a point-and-shoot properly. So all you get is the barest glimmer of the cross and a blurry Roman look-a-like.
