Happy International Widows Day everybody!

The Big Book of Magic Stuff doesn’t actually have a special day for widows, but I’m absolutely certain that all the authors of the Old Tasty Mint would approve of an International Widows Day. This makes the International Widows Day approved of by the Big Book of Magic Stuff and therefore a Good Thing.

The absolutely best Widow story is in the New Tasty Mint where a woman is grieving for her only son. So Jesus resurrected him, cured all his ills, and even grew his left leg back. No, I made the last bit up. Jesus hates amputees and to this day has never cured one. He didn’t raise the widow’s husband as he was too far gone by then. Widow and zombie son were happily reunited until he died a few weeks later from a virus that Jesus had created centuries earlier.

Which is exactly the same as the lockdown. Jesus stories are just so helpful.

(ED. Plus idiotic reference to the Book of Job, but I’m fed up lampooning this nonsense.)
