A day with the Jesuses: Jesus Lizard

Strictly speaking, the Jesus Lizard aren't named after Jesus, but an animal which walks on water.

Given that walking on water was one of the signs of Jesus being divine, having a reptile that can do the same trick undermines him a bit, doesn't it? I don't know if there are other animals which can do his other bits of business - a sloth which brings people back from the dead; a goose able to spin out a loaf bread to feed hundreds; a koala which goes into Cathedral Gift Shops and asks "so how is this different from moneychangers in the temple, exactly?"

David Yow in full yowl was a sight almost as wonderful as a lizard running over the surface of water, don't you think?

The Jesus Lizard gets an X-Factor of ow, ow, my ears.
