Man City’s #askjesus hashtag goes predictably astray
He's not the Messiah

Manchester City really should have considered the ramifications before starting the #askjesus hashtag.

The club intended for fans to tweet questions for Spanish winger Jesus Navas to answer.

But with the internet being the truly wonderful forum that it is, the hashtag was quickly taken over in a race to ask the daftest religious question and shoehorn in as many bible references as possible. Here's our pick of the best.

This tweeter was interested in social media etiquette back in the day.

While another wondered why Jesus didn’t use his special gifts to keep Yaya Touré happy?

This person could see how performing miracles might sometimes be a right pain.

Quite a few people wanted to engage him in philosophical debate.

Others wondered how his father felt about his career in the Premier League.

Jesus was asked if he felt a little superior when other people used this pop culture phrase.

But our favourite (so far) for sheer punning silliness, take a bow Ashley Coghlan.
