You can't make this up - Greek Orthodox and Armenian priests throw down. The full story tells of fists, rods, and brooms being used in the melee. Irritatingly, the report doesn't say which side won the ruckus. Couldn't they have just solved the dispute by playing "Rock, Paper, Scissors?" Jeez, how many years have they been sharing this church? It makes it sound like they couldn't run a lemonade stand!
"Fair use" quote:
"Seven people were injured on Thursday when Greek Orthodox and Armenian priests came to blows in a dispute over how to clean the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem.Following the Christmas celebrations, Greek Orthodox priests set up ladders to clean the walls and ceilings of their part of the church, which is built over the site where Jesus Christ is believed to have been born.

You'd think they'd be able to keep cool. ♪
