Last Supper in Babel is an imagined spaghetti dinner between Christ and his disciples in the town where God confused the languages of its infamous tower's builders. Written out in pasta, a whimsical conversion in twelve languages ensues between the twelve followers, who are waiting for the Messiah. As men do when left together, they gab about the usual - women, sports, and alcohol.
