Jesus Beaned At Pillow Fight

Thursday, February 11, 2010 16:08 GMT

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – No one is safe from a pillow fight beatdown – not even Jesus.

The Great San Francisco Pillow Fight is bringing mayhem to Justin Herman Plaza in honor of St. Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14) and all that is love.

Hundreds of people will show up armed with soft, cuddly pillows and beat the crap out of each other the moment the clock strikes six.

Anyone not holding a pillow should not be attacked unless they’re asking for it.

However, anyone with a pillow is fair game, including Jesus Christ.

According to spokesperson Eddie Phanichkul, last year a man dressed like Jesus showed up to the event but no one took it easy on him even if he did die for their sins.

In fact, a group ganged up on him and left the poor man whimpering.

If blasting Jesus seems wrong, couples can use the opportunity to beat each other up as a form of therapy.
