AI: Caption This Classic Holiday Image

Here is a tasty bonus treat for you all.

The following image is from a billboard from St. Matthew-In-The-City, a church in Auckland, New Zealand. Apparently this church has a reputation for putting up feisty billboards.

From their press release:

This billboard portrays Mary, Jesus’ mother, looking at a home pregnancy test kit revealing that she is pregnant.  Regardless of any premonition, that discovery would have been shocking.  Mary was unmarried, young, and poor.  This pregnancy would shape her future.  She was certainly not the first woman in this situation or the last.

As in the past it is our intention to avoid the sentimental, trite and expected to spark thought and conversation in the community.  This year we hope to do so with an image and no words. We invite you to wonder what your caption might be.

Let me just emphasize their request: We invite you to wonder what your caption might be.

As for my request: I invite you to wonder what your caption might be and, further, I invite you to leave that caption in the comment section below
