Knee Slapper

January 27, 2006 | 3 Comments

love the New York Post’s Weird But True round-up. The little news snippets always end with an ironic twist — and a moral. today’s offerings gave me a good chuckle:

A starving Kenyan woman placed a powerful tribal curse on God, accusing him of sending famine. She chanted, “Whoever brought this famine, let him perish,” as she beat a cooking pot with a stick.

She died in her sleep a few hours later.

Ha ha ha! Emaciated, dying primitives can be so funny, blaming the Being responsible for giving them the courage to cope with their suffering. I hope she’ll get the point by the time Satan’s three-headed dog is finished chewing what meat remains on her bones: if you worship jungle spirits instead of the one true God, you’ve got only yourself to blame.

    The logical conclusion is that she caused the famine.

    Still, putting a primitive voodoo curse on God for his evil ways is an intriguing notion. What if the tsunami caused people to curse YHVH in the name of Allah for having brought this evil to people. It gets Allah off the hook while ascribing evil to the competition.

    This begs the question, why can’t Allah eliminate both YHVH and God, outright or even by some kind of celestial hand-to-hand combat like Armageddon? Same question for each of the other two alleged deities.

    I found her a very thrifty woman — I mean without any food to cook in it, she found a great second use for her cookware.
