A hard act to follow

A row has been brewing in New Zealand over a poster put up by a church.

Poor Joseph

The church's vicar, Archdeacon Glynn Cardy, said the aim of the billboard had been to lampoon the literal interpretation of the Christmas conception story.

Personally, I can’t see it from the point of view of the church. I do however see the comedy of the situation: God really would be a hard act to follow.
