If Christ Can Do It…

Apparently in the Philippines, people get crucified as part of their Easter ritual. Like, really crucified. With nails.

Folks in the Philippines have been putting themselves through this torturous nonsense since the 17th Century, but the crucifixions were fake, people had been tied to the crosses. Then in 1961, the man chosen head Kristo demanded that he be nailed to his cross. Since then, real honest-to-God crucifixion has been deriguer.

This year, a Scottish former gameshow host named Dominik Diamond was filming a documentary about his own crucifixion that was to happen yesterday. Unsurprisingly, he chickened out at the last minute.
