What makes Baby Jesus Cry?

An online friend remarked that Baby Jesus wants us all to eat turkey on Christmas, only he spelled it "turkie" which, I'm sure, makes Baby Jesus cry. But I wondered whether people outside my little digi-group used that expression and--having confirmed with my daughter whose digital and analog paths seldom cross mine outside our home that they do--why it has become popular. So I googled "makes baby jesus cry" and got this result:

No comment on the sponsored link. The first entry to actually consider the origin of the expression (and the only on on the first page of results) comes from an online gaming wiki which, after research typical of the gaming community, declares the source to be "Nobody." But the really confusing entry is the sixth (counting the Mormon Church): Google makes baby Jesus cry. This one turns out to be a link to a Google search of "makes baby Jesus cry", which produces the same result I started with.

I guess I'll have some turkie and go lie down.
