  • It turns out a church in Mexico has inadvertently created the largest statue of the baby Jesus -- and it just happens to look exactly like Phil Collins. The statue, which bears an uncanny resemblance to the Genesis frontman, is nearly 22-feet-tall and weighs 2,000 pounds, was built for -- and is now housed in -- the La Epifanla del Senor church in the central Mexican state of Zacatecas. The new baby Jesus statue beats out the previous record holder, which stood 16-feet and weighed only 662 lbs. (The New York Post)
