He's about to look for room at an inn.   (Twitter)

(Newser) – There might not be room at the inn, but you can always squeeze 140 characters onto Twitter. Joseph of Nazareth, aka Joseph von Nazareth because he tweets in German, has taken to the Twitterverse to broadcast his tiny family's tribulations this Christmas, reports Der Spiegel. "Do you have any carpenter's work in Jerusalem? If so, I'm the man for the job," he recently tweeted. "Please note, that currently, I can only take orders in Nazareth and the surrounding area." The anonymous tweeter—a self-described third generation carpenter from Nazareth—started posting in Joseph's voice the first day of December and plans to continue through the Big Day. Just now he's a bit upset that Mary is pregnant. He's certain the baby isn't his. (Read more Virgin Mary stories.)
