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.

I foresee a whole genre: Every anniversary we'll be hearing from Hitler from the bunker; Dubya from the kindergarten class; Osama from his cave; Dubya from the deck of the aircraft carrier, Moses from the bullrushes and from the mountain, and the burning bush; Mohammed from his horse above the clouds; Suicide bombers from heaven on the perils and hassles of handling 72 horny women all at once; Maybe turkeys will tweet next Thanksgiving? Of course Jesus' second coming has already been done: See this Irishman:
