Controversial ‘Last Supper’ pose by Brazil’s Miss Bumbum contestants sparks a fury

SAO PAULO, Brazil - Here's a real 'bum'-mer!

The Miss Bumbum beauty pageant-- Brazil's annual "Rear of the Year" contest-- is sparking outrage over this raunchy re-creation of the famous 'Last Supper' painting.

Instead of Jesus and his disciples, you get the top eight contestants with the best er, "bum"....with the woman in Jesus' seat having the sexiest bottom of all!

"I do not like that," Houstonian Mateo Zepeda insisted. "I am...I think it is very offensive. I didn't even look at it very much, but... I think that was very disrespectful to-- not only-- to Jesus Christ."

"Well, I feel it is a very abstract way to view a reconstruction of that picture. Definitely," Moses Bunn declared.

At least one of the contestants says she regrets the sultry pose and has asked God for forgiveness for "a great sin."

Still, all these ladies will go cheek to cheek to see who wins the coveted title of "Miss Bumbum."

Bottom line...may the best bum win!
