ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER PLAGUE ...!

    

Now I've seen everything.  The Vicente Market in Brentwood is selling a new collection of "plush toys" designed to bring children of all ages up-to-speed on the Old Testament:  Ten Plagues Finger Puppets.  For only $12.95, you can stage your very own puppet show complete with Dancing Lice, a Laughing Locust, a Smiling Blood Clot and a First Born Corpse.  My personal favorite, "Billy Boil," is Brimming with enough Boils to create an Exodus from any dinner table.  I briefly considered buying the entire collection for my seven-month-old nephew, Jackson, but decided to Pass it Over.  If we wait long enough, maybe they'll come out with an Armageddon Marionette Show ...!

Looks like some of the "toys" found here in Utah. Pushcart saints, noah's boat with friendly dinosaurs included, moroni mobiles, jesus coffee grinders (oops, no you wouldn't find that HERE)...but yep, these Plague Puppets are the best I've seen yet.

The current bullying mythology (xianity) may be annoying but it hasn't been around as long as some of the past mythologies lasted. I guess it will have its day and be gone like the rest. Meanwhile, just keep your boil friend away from the coffee creamer. Thanks.  --Cin
