Bored Gods, Armed for War

Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored!" It's just a few days until Samhain, and usually I would be blogging, blogging, blogging about that. Instead I have a news bulletin, just in from:

Oya, Oshun, Hurracan, and Triton

and, at their backs,

Sedna and Turtle Woman

The message is: Repent, mortals, of this One-God business, or We will show you what's what!

It seems this intriguing multicultural group of deities has gotten together in utter dismay at the nature of modern America. Remember last year (I think it was last year), when that ultra-righty-tighty Christian group was praying for God to save America? Well, that was a puny effort, and completely ineffective. The deities above, over the next week, are going to show all of us what they can do. They are headed straight for Washington, DC and planning to meet up there to whoop ass.

Behold, the wrath of the Gods.

I do not expect to be spared (nor does Spare expect to be spared). I've put a few makeshift rain barrels outside. It's impossible to find flashlight batteries in this county right now, but I've got lots of candles and a fireplace.

If this is the last post here at TGAB until after Samhain, you'll know it's because the juice is out at Chateau Johnson. In that case, have a blessed Samhain, it will be on October 31, storm or no storm. We here at "The Gods Are Bored" will offer praise and worship to the deities above, and to all the others who blow strength into storms because that's how they roll.

Yes, I heard New Jersey was right in the path of the upcoming superstorm and immediately thought of you -- hang tight! Ride it out!

The only responsible thing to do, really, is to offer a sacrifice to the gods. Burnt offerings work best, especially children, preferably a first-born and/or a virgin. If none of your own children fit the description, I suppose that kidnapping one of the schoolkids would do. If the storm is bad enough, no one will suspect THAT'S why the kid disappeared; they'll blame it on Sandy. Of course, the fact that your home will be completely dry and not a leaf blown off any tree might arouse suspicions...
