Leonardo da Vinci Painting Sells for Record $450 Million:  A painting of Christ by the Renaissance master Leonardo da Vinci, has sold at auction for a record $450 million, obliterating previous records for artworks sold at auction or privately.  Wow, that’s one hell of a lot of money - especially when you consider Christ didn’t even pose for it.

Sausage Roll Instead of Jesus Nativity Scene Causes Stir:  UK chain bakery Greggs came under fire for an image of a nativity scene that put a sausage roll amid the three wise men in place of the baby Jesus.  The bakery defended the display, pointing out that “at least we can prove the existence of a sausage roll” - adding that “this one is from Jimmy Dean's Finest Reserve.”

I recently played René Descartes in a thing I did for Egyptian television - of course, I didn't wear a Hawaiian shirt on set (lol).
