My Dark Valentine

The origins of this festival of candy and cupids are dark and bloody. No one knows the exact origin of the holiday, one place to start is ancient Rome. Those Wild And Crazy Romans celebrated the feast of Lupercalia. The men sacrificed a goat and a dog, then whipped women with the hides of the animals they had just slain.

The Roman Valentine festivals were drunk and naked. Their fete included a matchmaking lottery in which young men drew the names of women from a jar. The couple would then be coupled up for the duration of the festival.

WHAT! All I ever got was a paper Valentine and a box of candy...

The Skulls and Crossbones is kinda creepy, which of course, means I like it.



In other news, Pastor Gregory Jamie Coots, snake-handling preacher from Middlesboro, KY, has died... of a snakebite. Even though, according to his own beliefs, that unequivocally demonstrates that he wasn't a "true Christian", I'll bet dollars to doughnuts that his funeral service will be filled with tales of how great a Christian he was and how wise he was. Blind faith is a cruel mistress.

No Ubertines this year?


Marge, you being a cop makes you the man! Which makes me the woman -- and
I have no interest in that, besides occasionally wearing the underwear,
which, as we discussed, is strictly a comfort thing.
