Biggest Jesus in World Now Ready to Take Your Money
The world's tallest Jesus statue has been completed! He resides in Swiebodzin, Poland. At 170 feet tall, with a huge but handsome noggin that had to be attached by a 700-ton crane, he beats out other, "more delicate" (read: wussy) Jesuses, like the 133-foot Cristo de la Concordia in Bolivia and the 130-foot Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro.
Dariusz Bekisz, the mayor of Poland, expects that this very special Jesus, who was paid for in local donations, will earn himself out in no time: "More people will visit Swiebodzin and leave their money," he was quoted by Radio Poland as saying.
Well, they better! Remember what happened to this Jesus?
